Summary
Newlywed Jade Westmore has finally found her forever in husband Wells, a charming, successful, and recently divorced architect—only there’s one caveat: behind the gates of their elysian estate, hidden from street view in the caretaker’s cottage … lives Wells’s first wife, Sylvie.

Three years ago, the original Mrs. Westmore suffered a nervous breakdown—and hasn’t uttered a sound since. Not a physician, psychologist, or world-renowned specialist has been able to elicit so much as a word from the silent woman—until now.

On an ordinary Tuesday while Wells was away—despite instructions to never disturb the fragile woman—Jade visited her isolated predecessor bearing a peace offering: a bouquet of white lilies. Only she wasn’t expecting Sylvie to have something for her as well: a slip of torn notebook paper with a single word scrawled in shaky black ink. That word? Run

The Silent Woman gave me “Verity” and “The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo” vibes in the best possible way! Jade moves in with her new husband Wells and he has an unusual setup. His ex-wife Sylvie lives in the guest house. She had an injury years ago and unable to communicate or do much… Or is she? Although it was predictable and I guessed all the twists I still really enjoyed this story! It was addicting I couldn’t put the book down, it was such an amazing page turning thriller with themes of strong women, great character development and amazing storyline. I highly recommend reading this if you want to read a truly incredible page turning thriller that you can’t stop reading!

It’s ok. I found the ending a bit flat. I thought there would be a dramatic twist but there wasn’t.

The narrator was okay, but the story lack a strong finish. I liked the build up. It was a nicely paced burn; however, it seemed like the author needed to meet a deadline, much like Jade in the story.

This was a well written book and the narration was excellent. Great word choice, engaging, kept me guessing. The ending was good and final. I’m left a huge fan of all the women of Westmore. I’m now a huge fan of Lakin…this is my second book (first being The Only One Left) and now I’ll be following her for her next thriller! The narration is equally important, if not more, than the story itself. I am very picky. Bravo!

It's a book that should've been a very short story. The narrator was good. I could've used my free credit on a good book.

This was an enjoyable thriller with a storyline a bit different from the norm. I guessed the ending but there were some good twists in the tale. It was my VIP book choice for this month and I listened to it over two days. I thought the narrator was good too.

I feel like this book was overall ok. If you’re wanting something easy to listen to within the genre this is perfect for that. I could see an avid mystery “who done it” reader listening to this and not thinking it was amazing. But for the few I have read I thought it was good. The narrator was good!

Loved this book, best one I have listened to in a long time. It keep me interested throughout and great ended. So many books are average with a great twist at the end, this book is fabulous throughout and still delivers a great ending. Highly recommend!

I enjoyed this book very much, it kept me guessing and slowly unveiled the story behind his first wife. The narration is pleasant. I look forward to another book of MK.

I listened to this after listening to The Silent Patient. They are both great books, well worth a listen.

Fairly good overall and keeps you constantly revising your theories as you go, but waltzes right past the perfect setup for a final twist at the end for a finish that feels like a let down in comparison. Feels like the author had it in mind at first and just couldn't connect the dots so settled for the "easier" route.
