Finding the Other Woman

Dreamscape Audio. Apr. 2022. 8:13 hrs. ISBN 9781666567021. $24.99. SUSPENSE
After surviving a car accident that killed her father, Amelia developed amnesia and lost four years of her life. Now that she has returned to herself, all she knows is that she and her husband, Carl, lived in the city the entire time. Carl won’t say more, as he is worried that recovering her memories may irreparably damage her fragile psyche. Amelia can’t let the past rest, however, and when Carl begins to call out another woman’s name in his sleep, she begins to seek out the mystery of what happened to her, and why. Who is the other woman? Could she be the key to Amelia’s lost past? Baxter’s (What She Forgot) latest psychological thriller takes listeners through Amelia’s nightmarish past, revealing deeply disturbing and graphically described child sexual abuse and trauma. The story’s twist is unsurprising, but listeners will be satisfied to see that the perpetrators are justly punished. Narrator Jennifer Jill Araya provides a quality performance, believably voicing Amelia’s growing panic and distress without resorting to theatrics.
VERDICT Despite Araya’s solid narration, the unconvincing plot and predictable conclusion make this a strictly optional purchase.
