You’ll have your deposit within seven business days, just like it says on I’ve put through a refund to your credit card for the full amount, minus $200 to replace the sheets. I couldn’t get the stain out despite professional laundering and bleaching. . .


All Dawn wanted was to stay in a beautiful beach house with her husband, to live like money’s no object, for just one long weekend. Then Miranda, the home’s owner, has to send an e-mail like this, full of lies and the suggestion that Dawn’s so dirty, she needs to throw out her sheets. Someone needs to teach Miranda a lesson.

Beware of your "host"I wouldn’t leave a review on at all, if I didn’t feel it was my civic duty to warn others . . .Dawn
Miranda cannot believe her eyes. Yes, she may be a doctor’s wife, but she needs the rental money from the beach house desperately. Someone needs to teach this Dawn a lesson.

Two very different women with one thing in common: Each one knows she’s right, and each is determined to win this battle of words and wills and (eventually) worse. Neither will yield, not before they’ve dredged up hidden secrets, old hurts, and painful truths that threaten to shatter the foundations of their lives.

Because it’s never really just about the sheets, is it?

This is not over.

This is so not over.

Quick Thoughts: This is a hard book for me to review. I listened to it in one day but there were points I thought about DNFing it. The characters really were hard to take and I think they were supposed to be. I couldn’t sympathize with either of them (even at the end). That being said, the idea that a negative review could lead to this kind of thing absolutely made sense to me. In that essence, the characters were spot on. It would take two incredibly narcissistic people to take it as far as these two did. Did I like the book? Hard to say. Did I find it fascinating? At times. Would I recommend it? Maybe it would depend on the reader.

The narrators nailed this. I honestly think I stuck with the book because of how well they did. They really brought out every little thing about the characters. This was great audiobook casting.

  1. I’ve had several books that I would’ve been able to finish if it weren’t for the narrators. I’ve read a books that are like this one. Interesting, but don’t know if you would say you liked it. Good narrators are a must for these books. Great review.

  2. Based on the audio sample, I agree that the narrators for this were killer! I haven’t read many psychological thrillers, but I really enjoyed I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh. I think I might be too much of a scaredy cat to listen to it on audio though, as I’m sure it’d really freak me out! Haha.

    • The narrators freaking nailed it 🙂 I will have to check out Clare Mackintosh–I don’t think I have heard of her. This one wasn’t really scary unless you leave YELP (or such) reviews because this was all about a bad review that went freaking insane.
