When you listen to this audiobook, you will make many assumptions. You will assume you are listening to a story about a jealous ex-wife. You will assume she is obsessed with her replacement - a beautiful, younger woman who is about to marry the man they both love. You will assume you know the anatomy of this tangled love triangle. Assume nothing. Twisted and deliciously chilling, The Wife Between Us exposes the secret complexities of an enviable marriage - and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love.

A good book, not great, but what is nowadays. I usually listen to Agatha Christie, so nothing can compare. But I still enjoyed this book, although it was a bit slow and in the end the explanation of past events is very quick, almost unsatisfying, because after the whole book, you are waiting for an elaborate explanation but just get one or two instances from the past.

Seeking women ages 18-32 to participate in a study on ethics and morality. Generous compensation. Anonymity guaranteed. When Jessica Farris signs up for a psychology study conducted by the mysterious Dr. Shields, she thinks all she’ll have to do is answer a few questions, collect her money, and leave. But as the questions grow more and more intense and invasive and the sessions become outings where Jess is told what to wear and how to act, she begins to feel as though Dr. Shields may know what she’s thinking...and what she’s hiding.

Melissa has just finished writing her latest mystery novel and is enjoying the arrival of spring. She’s decided to let her fictional detective retire at last and perhaps put her own days of investigating behind her, too. But the ink has barely dried on the page when Melissa receives shocking news: Her estranged father has been found dead in the family home and her mother, Sylvia, is under suspicion of murder.

After four hours nothing had happened in the book re detecting or clues. The speaker is not good at all, everyone has the same voice and way of speaking. The way and reason the murderer is detected is the most unimaginative way possible. Because he/she knew something, nobody else knew....zzzzz.

Very boring! Too long (Christie books are much shorter and to the point)! Dull characters (boring conversations). Unnecessary subplots about mobbing in school, abortion, relationships between father and son, mother and son in law to be, cake and much more. Repetitive. Plot did not make much sense in the end, some points were not cleared up. Conclusion not ingenious enough for a Poirot mystery, no clues, no evidence revealed in the end. Cannot understand good reviews. Nobody can write as well as Christie, but Hannah doesn't even try. Stick to Christie.

Stuck in a traffic jam, Nicki Clements sees a face she hoped never to see again. It's definitely him, the same police officer, stopping each car on Elmhirst Road. Keen to avoid him, Nicki does a U-turn and makes a panicky escape. Or so she thinks. The next day, Nicki is pulled in for questioning in connection with the murder of Damon Blundy, controversial newspaper columnist and resident of Elmhirst Road. Nicki can't answer any of the questions detectives fire at her. She has no idea why the killer used a knife in such a peculiar way, or why 'he is no less dead' was painted on Blundy's study wall.

This is the worst book that I have ever heard and does not even deserve one star. I had difficulty going on hearing it. The storyline, the dialogues are so bad, I wonder how this book got printed. The last words were really uncanny. Those who already heard them will know what I mean. I was glad the book was over!!!

Even though Agatha Raisin loathes Christmas panto, her friend, Mrs Bloxby, the vicar's wife, has persuaded her to support the local am dram society in their festive offering. Stifling a yawn at the production of Babes in the Wood, Agatha watches the baker playing an ogre strut and threaten onstage until a trapdoor opens, followed by a scream and silence! Surely this wasn't the way the scene was rehearsed. When it turns out the local baker had been murdered most horribly, Agatha puts her team of detectives on the case.

A therapist moved into the village of Carsely, and Agatha Raisin hated her. Not only was this therapist, Jill Davent, romancing Agatha's ex-husband, but she had dug up details of Agatha's slum background. Added to that, Jill was counselling a woman called Gwen Simple from Winter Parva, and Agatha firmly believed Gwen to have assisted her son in some grisly murders, although has no proof she had done so.
