Review: The Wife Between Us

The Wife Between Us The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Twist after twist in this one! It was exhausting--I'm going to have to hold off on psychological thrillers for awhile....

Richard was the perfect husband until he started sleeping with his personal assistant. Now Nellie is doing everything to prevent them from getting married--she's the horrible, bitter ex-wife, right?

But things aren't always what they seem. Lots of twists and turns and the past coming back to bite people in the ass.

Great, smooth narration and good production--didn't hear any errors in this ARC of the audiobook.

Review: Sometimes I Lie

Sometimes I Lie Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Reviewed from Advance Listening Copy picked up at ALA Midwinter 2018.

Well. I should have known from the title, right? Unreliable narrators are the WORST!

Okay, they are to me. Lots of twists and turns here between Now and Then timelines, along with different point-of-views as you go along. Those are always harder to listen to than read, because you don't see the different fonts and set-asides that tell you when things are changing.

The audiobook had lovely British accents, but the production was off because I had to keep changing the volume of the audiobook according to the accent/character speaking.

Amber is in a coma and listening to all the conversations around her, while her memories sneak back in. She is trying to remember what happened to her in the days before she went into the coma. How did it happen? Who did something to her? Her sneaky evil sister? Her husband that is cheating? Her idiot ex-boyfriend? Lots of questions and they do eventually get answered, even if it's a long and twisting road to get there.

Review: The Last Mile

The Last Mile The Last Mile by David Baldacci
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As always, Baldacci delivers a readable mystery/thriller. Amos Decker now works for the FBI and collaborates with a recently released death row ex-con to help solve a mystery. I forgot to blog about this weeks ago when I finished, and that's about all I remember from it! Baldacci novels are like that--quick and easy reads, but nothing really sticks in your head. And I'm okay with that. These books are great escapes for me.

Review: Into the Black Nowhere

Into the Black Nowhere Into the Black Nowhere by Meg Gardiner
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Another great thriller about a serial killer and the FBI agents that hunt them. FBI agent Caitlin Hendrix is hunting someone who keeps putting young blonde women into white nightgowns and killing them. Lots of twists and unbelievable action, mostly taking place in Texas and Oregon.

No errors were heard in the audio production, but the narration and story didn't grip me like some audiobooks do.
