Listening Lately {3 Audio Books}

Between a prom dinner for 40, the kitchen project, getting ready for Spring Break, two varsity sports and my job, life has been bonkers lately. My goal every day is simply to make it to the next day :-) I haven’t had time to pick up an actual book but I plowed through three audio books in the midst of all this. I use my local library membership and the Libby app to listen for free.

Never Lie

Never Lie by Freida McFadden is a fantastic psychological thriller. I absolutely loved this one and never wanted to hit the pause button. It was full of twists and an unexpected ending. Definitely snag this one!

Newlyweds Tricia and Ethan are searching for the house of their dreams. But when they visit the remote manor that once belonged to Dr. Adrienne Hale, a renowned psychiatrist who vanished without a trace four years earlier, a violent winter storm traps them at the estate… with no chance of escape until the blizzard comes to an end. In search of a book to keep her entertained until the snow abates, Tricia happens upon a secret room. One that contains audio transcripts from every single patient Dr. Hale has ever interviewed. As Tricia listens to the cassette tapes, she learns about the terrifying chain of events leading up to Dr. Hale’s mysterious disappearance. Tricia plays the tapes one by one, late into the night. With each one, another shocking piece of the puzzle falls into place, and Dr. Adrienne Hale’s web of lies slowly unravels. And then Tricia reaches the final cassette.

The Teacher

The Teacher, also by Frieda McFadden, was another great thrill read. This one just debuted last month and was a lucky library score.

Lesson #1: trust no one

Eve has a good life. She gets up each day, gets a kiss from her husband Nate, and heads off to teach math at the local high school. All is as it should be. Except… Last year, Caseham High was rocked by a scandal involving a student-teacher affair, with one student, Addie, at its center. But Eve knows there is far more to these ugly rumors than meets the eye. Addie can’t be trusted. She lies. She hurts people. She destroys lives. At least, that’s what everyone says.  But nobody knows the real Addie. Nobody knows the secrets that could destroy her. And Addie will do anything to keep it quiet.

Rock Paper Scissors

Rock Paper Scissors by Alice Feeney round out my thrill binge listen. This one was a slow burn and was my least favorite of the three. I did hang on for the big twist at the end and am so glad I did!

Things have been wrong with Mr and Mrs Wright for a long time. When Adam and Amelia win a weekend away to Scotland, it might be just what their marriage needs. Self-confessed workaholic and screenwriter Adam Wright has lived with face blindness his whole life. He can’t recognize friends or family, or even his own wife. Every anniversary the couple exchange traditional gifts–paper, cotton, pottery, tin–and each year Adam’s wife writes him a letter that she never lets him read. Until now. They both know this weekend will make or break their marriage, but they didn’t randomly win this trip. One of them is lying, and someone doesn’t want them to live happily ever after. Ten years of marriage. Ten years of secrets. And an anniversary they will never forget.

I’m currently listening to The Locked Door – another by Freida McFadden. I don’t love her narrators, but I DO love her stories.

  1. These are all great. Add to your list You Shouldn’t Have Come Here by Jeneva Rose. Sooo good especially at the very end!! And I agree, not a fan of the readers for Frieda. Colleen Hoover has good readers.

  2. I love listening to autobiographies because they are always read by the author.
    I particularly loved Molly Shannon’s.

    So much content available these days.
    Podcasts? Streaming tv? Can’t keep up.
