Thank you, Alice Feeney, Macmillan Audio, and NetGalley for the opportunity to listen to this audiobook!
I will never forget the shock I felt when I listened to Alice Feeney’s debut novel, Sometimes I Lie. I also enjoyed her second novel, I Know Who You Are. So needless to say I was overjoyed when I received a copy of His and Hers, Alice Feeney’s third thriller. There are three sides to this story. His, Hers, and the truth. Anna Andrews is a BBC presenter and it is her dream job. Her job has become her life after her separation from her husband, Jack Harper after the loss of their child. Jack Harper is a detective with the police in a small village. His and Anna’s worlds collide again with the death of a former acquaintance. Jack’s involvement with the deceased puts him on edge as suspicion surrounds him. However, Anna knows the victim as well, and the past is a dark corner she doesn’t want to think about, but it will soon come to light.
Sweet Jesus, I love Alice Feeney’s work! This book is a dark and complex puzzle that just gets more complicated after every page. There was a point where the audiobook had about 45 minutes left but the plot seemed to be complete…I should have known better. This is not a book you will forget! I have never been able to predict Alice Feeney’s endings which is HUGE for me. Nothing turns me off more than a predictable ending but this book kept me on my toes the entire time. At first, I was unsure. The suspense was building up but I needed a twist…I guess that is why they say, “be careful what you wish for!”
I love the characters. They are all flawed and have dark and complex histories which just adds to the unpredictable nature of the book. I must mention some triggers for those who may listen or read this book: rape, bullying, and drug abuse. This book is dark. I am not over-exaggerating. So if you are unfamiliar with Alice Feeney’s work, tread carefully.
Now, for the narrators. I will listen to anything that Stephanie Racine narrates. She has nailed every book that I have listened to. Then there is Richard Armitage. I could listen to him read absolutely anything. If this book gets made into a movie or show, he better be cast! This book gets 5 out of 5 stars from me! It will hit shelves today!! So check it out!
