The Wife Upstairs

A Novel

By Rachel Hawkins
Narrated by: Emily Shaffer, Kirby Heyborne & Lauren Fortgang
Length: 8 hours 39 minutes

The Wife Upstairs

The Wife Upstairs is a spine-tingling domestic thriller that will keep the reader guessing until the bitter end. The story begins with a woman named Jane, who is a dog walker in an elite neighborhood. She resents the women she works for and takes her frustrations out by pocketing some of their jewelry. One evening, her path crosses Eddie's, who just happens to be a handsome, charming widower. Immediately sparks fly. In a matter of weeks, Jane is living with Eddie, and she is best buddies with the neighborhood women that she used to despise. As Jane settles into her new life, she begins to hear strange sounds coming from the attic. I think that you can pretty much figure out who is making the sounds. The story is fast-paced, and I kept thinking that I had things figured out and then would change my mind. The narration was very well done. ”

The Survivors

A Novel

By Jane Harper
Narrated by: Stephen Shanahan
Length: 11 hours 56 minutes

If you enjoyed The Guest List, then you’ll love The Survivors.

“I was much anticipating Jane Harper's newest work and it certainly did not disappoint. All her books fulfill their objective: exciting, hold-your-breathe thrillers with complicated characters and emotions. I've listened to them all on audio and they have cemented Stephen Shanahan as one of my favorite narrators. His smooth, sexy Australian accent adds so much to the books and allows me to escape for the many hours I listen. Shanahan's voice keeps me totally engrossed and listening becomes my only objective for the next few days. When I got The Survivors from, I literally dropped everything else I was reading and doing so I could immerse myself in this story. My all time favorite thing about Harper's books is her sense of place. Sure, her human characters are fun and complicated but her choice of setting is the true star of the show. The angry sea and the mysterious caves combine for a super thrilling locale, adding to the excitement of the book. ”
