Summary

Emma’s darkest secrets are buried in the past. But the truth can’t stay hidden for long.
Emma is a loving wife, a devoted mother…and an involuntary killer. For years she’s been hiding the dead body of the teacher who seduced her as a teen.
It’s a secret that might have stayed buried if only her life had been less perfect. A promotion for Emma’s husband, Alex, means they can finally move to a bigger home with their young son. But with a buyer lined up for their old house, Emma can’t leave without destroying every last trace of her final revenge....
Returning to the shallow grave in the garden, she finds it empty. The body is gone.
Panicked, Emma confesses to her husband. But this is only the beginning. Soon, Alex will discover things about her he’ll wish he’d learned sooner. And others he’ll long to forget.

Started well but got very annoying very quickly

This could have been a great story. It started so well. It soon descended in the Millennial couple's angst ridden thoughts filling huge areas of the book. The characters were self obsessed and extremely unpleasant in their own ways, so the listener has little interest or empathy in their fortunes. If you are 30-45 and female, you may love the slow gossipy style of first person narration, and you may adore the practically inept, useless and weak Millennial husband, but others outside the target audience, may like me, find it very annoying. It reminded me of Rachel Abbott's books which similarly suffer from the same style, she too assumes men do not read crime books. I am not sure I will read another one by Caroline Mitchell because of this.

Learn from my mistake

I listened to over half of this (enough that returning it feels like a cheat), hoping it would get better, but it didn’t. Learn from my mistake and save ten hours of your life. First, there’s the story: a young teenaged girl is sexually assaulted, and it’s never even really addressed. I can understand it not being dealt with in the context of the story, but it’s like the author didn’t quite understand that even a “consensual” relationship between a teen girl and a much older teacher is hugely problematic. Then, the girl (now a woman) is casually gaslighted by every other character in the book “for her own good,” except the ones who serve no discernible purpose in the story (there are several of those). I hated everyone, and they were not complex characters that were fun to hate. They were all just dreadful.

Finally, a minor quibble: the writing, ugh. “‘Why do you say that?’ she asked, seeking information.” Yeah. We know she’s seeking information. She asked a question. Give us some credit.

Would have rated four stars if narrator was better

The story kept me engaged but it is probably a better read than audio book due to the irritating narration by Ms Knowelden. She speaks with a soft, breathy, sometimes whispering voice. That is not good in an audiobook. It's sometimes hard to hear but even more distracting is the irritating sound of breathy tones through a mechanized device. I am always amazed when professionals do not know to project and even moreso that the technical staff does not catch this problem. Mr. West's narration was good.
