Beschreibung

The bestselling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish returns with a psychological thriller, filled with chilling serpentine twists, about a woman fighting to hold onto the only family she's ever loved-and how far she'll go to preserve it.

Named one of the most anticipated thrillers of the year by Goodreads, Bustle, SheReads, and Library Journal

Breezing into the tony seaside paradise of Westport, Connecticut, gorgeous thirtysomething Piper Reynard sets down roots, opening a rehab and wellness space and joining a local yacht club. When she meets Leo Drakos, a handsome, successful lawyer, the wedding ring on his finger is the only thing she doesn't like about him. Yet as Piper well knows, no marriage is permanent.

Meanwhile, Joanna has been waiting patiently for Leo, the charismatic man she fell in love with all those years ago, to re-emerge from the severe depression that has engulfed him. Though she's thankful when Leo returns to his charming, energetic self, paying attention again to Evie and Stelli, the children they both love beyond measure, Joanna is shocked to discover that it's not her loving support that's sparked his renewed happiness—it's something else.

Piper. Leo has fallen head over heels for the flaky, New Age-y newcomer, and unrepentant and resolute, he's more than willing to leave Joanna behind, along with everything they've built. Of course, he assures her, she can still see the children.

Joanna is devastated—and determined to find something, anything, to use against this woman who has stolen her life and her true love. As she digs deeper into Piper's past, Joanna begins to unearth disturbing secrets . . . but when she confides to her therapist that she fears for the lives of her ex-husband and children, her concerns are dismissed as paranoia. Can she find the proof she needs in time to save them?

    This storyline keeps you on the edge of your seat!! Can’t stop listening to it and can’t wait to get back to it if you have to!!
  • (4/5)
    Good book surprise ending kept ya totally misdirected, only bad part is the entire explanation of the story happened in last chapter all rushed together. It would have been better if we got a little at a time and was able to connect it as we went.

    I was not impressed. I really like the author but I was very disappointed in this book.
  • (3/5)
    A lot of build up for a decently interesting twist at the end. Seems rushed and quickly edited so Liv constantine could meet a deadline for her next book. Quick listen, but not enthralling

    This was an awesome read and I did not expect the ending
  • (5/5)
    The twists and turns keep you guessing throughout the book. The narration was performed very well.
  • (3/5)
    Julia Whelan's performance was awesome, like always! However, the narrator who does the voice of Piper, definitely needs a lot of work. Her performance was like listening to staccato. Plus,bthe entire story was extremely hard to believe. This is mainly because there are some outlandish things that both women kept doing.
  • (3/5)
    Was slow and uneventful but I had to read to the end. The end was good and surprising but the first 3/4 was less than entertaining.
  • (5/5)
    Kept my interest and wanted to know where the story is going. At first I was disappointed and thought maybe 3 stars as some things just seemed so unbelievable BUT as the story unfolded, I was shocked! Loved it!
  • (5/5)
    Gah the whole book I was trying to figure it out! And BAM the end hit like truck! Listen in!
  • (4/5)
    I still have questions, but I'm also satisfied. I do not typically agree with thrillers like this having a sequel...but I am really going to need some kind of follow-up. Even if they don't write the sequel in a full novel, I need some sort of epilogue!
  • (2/5)
    I thought that the story was far fetched enough that I wasn’t able to suspend disbelief long enough to become immersed in the story. I thought that the narration was decent though.

    Liv Constantine’s deft facility with sleight-of-hand plotting and diversionary tactics are on full display in her latest thriller The Wife Stalker. Piper Reynard, one of two central figures in the novel, is fleeing a murky past that she seeks to leave behind on the other side of the country. She is the recent owner of a new wellness center in a wealthy CT suburb, leveraging her prior therapist training to cater to a gullible clientele. The story begins as Piper is training her laser focus on a handsome defense attorney who is representing one of her clients. Leo Drakos is a successful but troubled family man who quickly becomes captivated by the beautiful and driven woman. There is only one thing standing in the way of the two lovers: Joanna. Joanna is almost farcically indulgent, overprotective and doting, always seeking to selflessly serve the needs of Leo and the two young children, Evie and Stelli. Despite her ceaseless devotion, Leo jumps at the opportunity to banish Joanna when her needy mother is injured, paving the way for a new life with Piper. Now that Joanna is out of the house, Piper slides into place—clumsily attempting to win over the children who miss their mother and are not as easily charmed as their father. Convinced that Piper is a dangerous black-widow predator, Joanna vows to recapture her rightful position and convince Leo that he has been dangerously duped. Joanna starts digging into Piper’s past, hoping to discover enough disturbing evidence to justify some increasingly desperate attempts to win Leo back. Constantine alternates between the perspectives of the two main female characters, Piper’s in third person and Joanna’s in first-person narration. The two women are cleverly complements and the book’s gripping plot provides creeping revelations into the warped complexity of both. Somewhere along the way, the author also manages to lead the reader astray, and the result is a climax that is breathtakingly unexpected. The Wife Stalker will likely thrill Constantine’s many fans, earning her some well-deserved new ones. In a genre replete with an embarrassment of riches, Liv Constantine manages to provide even the most seasoned thrill seekers an uncommon reward—a genuinely surprising ending.Thanks to the author, Harper Collins and Edelweiss for an advance copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

    Lots of twists in this one, and for once a book that did not reveal the twists right away and I never guessed them. I think many of us women have had a "Piper" come into our lives and it was easy for me to dislike her character. I don't want to spoil anything but this was a good listen and the narration was excellent.
