A suicide prevention hotline volunteer answers a call that turns her world upside down in this edge-of-your-seat audio original thriller by the bestselling author of The Perfect Child and The Best of Friends, performed by A.J. Cook (Criminal Minds) and Tessa Albertson (Younger).

Felicia, a single mother and lawyer by day, volunteers at a local crisis center to give back to her tightknit community in a small Wisconsin town. One night, she answers a horrifying call: through tears, a frantic teenage girl tells her that she was a victim of sexual assault at a local house party.

Felicia is shocked, and breaking protocol, she begins communicating with the girl on her own, determined to keep her safe and hold her assailants accountable. But as she gets closer and closer to the truth, she can’t shake the feeling that she and the girl are connected by more than the phone call. As the girl shares more details, Felicia begins to think the unthinkable—someone close to her may be involved in this heinous crime.

As Felicia earns the girl’s trust and more facts emerge about the incident, she faces a gut-wrenching battle between her protective instincts and the moral responsibility to do what’s right. This taut thriller is the perfect listen for fans of The Push, Wrong Place Wrong Time, and We Need to Talk About Kevin.

Small-town SUSPENSE thriller twisted

Felicia is a single mom and lawyer who volunteers for a crisis hotline in small-town Wisconsin. One night, she gets a frantic call from a young teenage girl who claims to have been sexually assaulted. Breaking protocol, she communicates with the girl on her personal cellphone. The tale that unfolds held me captive as Felicia begins to suspect she may know the perpetrator.

Wow, this was an addictive tale from beginning to end. The author shares Felicia’s past as she frantically tries to help this young girl who is becoming suicidal. Berry kept me on edge from one suspenseful moment to the next. The author will have you questioning your own actions if you found yourself in Felicia’s shoes.

Fair warning, there are plenty of triggers in this one dealing. Nothing explicitly detailed, but rape, bullying, and suicide are central to the story. I went into this cold and avoided spoilers. I recommend you do the same.

Brilliant, addictive and suspenseful. One of Our Own was unputdownable and one I recommend listening to. A.J. Cooke and Tessa Albertson brought Felicia and the young victim to life.
