Publisher's Summary

Kate is a rapidly rising star of the trauma therapy world - London based, shy, uptight, and with an air of aloofness that masks a deep sense of insecurity.
When she has to relocate her "Traumatology for the 21st Century" conference to Horton Hill "Deluxe" Hotel and Conference Centre in the heart of industrial West Yorkshire, she is understandably horrified by the state of the place.
Horton Hill is a mess. The car park looks like the surface of the moon. The pool is a health hazard. And the staff seem incapable of speaking intelligible English.
When Naz, the hotel's "Hospitality Assistant" finds Kate struggling with her luggage, she instantly stops to help. Bright, enthusiastic and hard-working, she is drawn to Kate's barely concealed vulnerability, and desperately wants to make a good impression on the harassed, but undeniably attractive conference organizer.
Despite her natural caution, as the weekend progresses, Kate finds herself warming to Naz's kindness and obvious interest in her.
But she is unaware that her carefully constructed life back in London is starting to unravel.
And when she finds herself accused of a terrible crime, Kate discovers that sometimes friendship and love can be found in the most unlikely of places.

Not what I expected

Initially the story seemed to be purely an f/f romance. But about halfway through the story changed to be a murder mystery. The writing style unconventional, and in some cases there were a lot of point of view changes, and many new characters were introduced when the mystery part starts, here also the main character role changes. The tale itself is captivating, and I like all the different characters and their backgrounds, these are very well developed. The narrator Anne Day-Jones does a great job brining them to life, Russian to northern accents and all. The author brings her humour and observations specific to the UK to the prose which is a nice change, and this in itself adds a lot of extra substance. I guess for me, although not jarring, maybe a better melding between to stages of the story. I kinda missed the limited interaction between Kate/Naz in the second half.

- Alice "I love audio books and listening to them while I draw or paint. They help to level me and take away the stress while drawing."

Very complex and interwoven

Would you listen to The Wrong Woman again? Why?

It was interesting with some surprising twists and turns. Very complex and interwoven. The only downside was that there were so many characters, that I found it hard to keep track of them all. That also makes the story even more interesting the second time around.


What did you like best about this story?

The setting and the overall feel of it. So British.


What about Anne Day-Jones’s performance did you like?

Very good, suited the story very well. Heavy accent, makes the whole story so British you can almost taste it.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Smiles and surprises. Huh? Moments. Longing for a little more erotic scenes…
