The Plot (from Goodreads):
Amy jumps at the opportunity when she’s offered a nannying job in picturesque West Cork. The assignment is for the friendly and welcoming Carroll family, whose stunning house is situated on a stretch of remote and rugged coastline overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. It’s the perfect chance for Amy to escape the suffocating city and the man who made her life hell.
With two adorable children to oversee, a pair of generous employers, and more freedom than she’s enjoyed in years, everything seems wonderful. So why can’t Amy shake a creeping sense of unease? Perhaps it’s the husband’s erratic behavior. Or the fact that she was never told about the reclusive teenage son whose bedroom is next to hers. Or maybe it’s the strange messages that somebody has been painting around the local village.
Quickly, it becomes clear that all is not well in the Carroll marriage, nor in their idyllic rural community. Whispered secrets and strange occurrences fill the breathtaking scenery with menace and, as the days pass, Amy learns that the refuge she has sought just might be the most dangerous place of all.
How did Someone You Trust end?
Someone You Trust with a quick, fun listen that helped me get through a weekend of chores. It’s pretty much your standard “things aren’t what they seem in the live-in nanny’s new job” story. Amy had some secrets I didn’t guess, but I wasn’t particularly shocked by any of the reveals. It’s a very quick listen and I was entertained throughout, though. Roisin Rankin is a new-to-me narrator who nailed the narration, and of course I have to mention her dreamy accent!
