Summary

‘I’ve been dying to meet you,’ Cassandra says in a voice that’s anything but sweet. Her razor-sharp nails dig into my shoulder and her pearly white smile doesn’t quite reach her eyes. My heart hammers in my chest. Does she remember me?

When I first met Miles, it felt like fate. He was everything I’d dreamed of, and we were engaged within six months. But now I’m meeting his parents. And there’s one small problem: his mother. Because I’ve met Cassandra before – and if she realizes who I am, my life could be on the line.

Luckily, there’s no flicker of recognition in her icy blue eyes as she greets me on the grand staircase of her white-bricked mansion. Just immediate dislike. Except Miles worships his mother, and I want her to accept me. My only choice is to try and fit into their perfect world.

But when I begin to receive threatening messages, one thing becomes clear: Cassandra wants me out of her son’s life, and she will do anything to get what she wants. Including destroying me. But that’s okay. No matter what she does, I’m confident that Miles and I will be forever.

Because I know Cassandra’s darkest secret. The one she’ll do absolutely anything to keep. I have a plan, while she has no idea who she’s dealing with. And by the time my darling mother-in-law realizes, it will be far too late for her to run…

If you love The Perfect Marriage, Gone Girl and anything by Lisa Jewell or Nicola Sanders, you’ll be hooked on The Mother-in-Law’s Secret!

Interesting listen

I enjoyed the story. It was interesting and kept me listening. I found the narration irritating as I didn’t like the voices overall it’s a good book out with a good twist.

Jaw droppingly exciting

Absolutely spectacular book - completely unputdownable with all the twists and turns. Had me on the edge of my seat for the entire book, not knowing what was going to happen on the next page! Excellent debut novel from Melanie Price, can’t wait to read more from her!

Worth a listen

Story started well, but I felt it was quite slow to get to the point. Listened to the end, but couldn’t say it was a gripping tale.

WOW!!!

WOW!! Best thing I’ve listened to in a while! It’s full of shocking twists that I never saw coming. I nearly missed my stop in my commute, I was so engrossed in the story. I enjoyed it immensely and the two narrators made it so immersive, fantastic performances. And that ending… OMG! A complete jaw-dropper for me. Highly recommend, well worth a credit.

A Gripping Tale!

Absolutely loved this book by Melanie Price. The story had me hooked right from the start. I couldn’t stop listening. So many twists and turns and just when I thought I’d figured it out, bam the surprises just kept on coming!

A beautifully written book, loved seeing the characters develop, sometimes in the most surprising ways! Also loved the two-person POV narration!
I can’t wait for Melanie’s next book!

Fun listen with a great plot!

This was a great thriller - the voice actors were really talented and kept you engaged throughout the book. This has a great plot with fun twists and turns.

So gripping! Loved it!

From the get-go with that prologue I was hooked! With the dual narration I had no idea what the twist was going to be - and seriously I tried to guess, but that ending was not what I was expecting at all! Loved it! I’ve also not listened to any dual narrations before where it switches in the middle, and so it made me even more gripped - constantly kept me on my toes!

Awful

Just goes to show we all like different things. After reading other reviews I was looking forward to this book. However, the narration was so bad I gave up fairy early. It was as if it was being read to a bunch of little children, and when the fake 'posh' English accents started I could bear it no longer. May be a brilliant story but I'll never know unfortunately.
