Kiersten is a KDP Select All-Star, a recipient of ThrillerFix’s Best Psychological Thriller Award and Suspense Magazine’s Best Book of 2021 Award. She grew up in rural western Kentucky and later relocated to Nashville, Tennessee, where she now lives with her husband, daughter, and their two Boston Terriers: Cedric and Georgie. Kiersten’s work is currently being translated into multiple languages, and readers across the world refer to her as ‘The Queen of Twists.’ A Netflix addict, Shonda Rhimes superfan, psychology fanatic, and indoor enthusiast, Kiersten enjoys rainy days spent with her nose in a book.

First, there was The Arrangement—a scandalous story about Peter and Ainsley Greenburg’s attempt to fix their marriage, no matter the cost.
Then came The Amendment—with their darkest secrets revealed, the couple set out in a treacherous attempt to repair what had been broken.
Now, Peter and Ainsley’s marriage will be put to one final test with The Atonement.
Ainsley Greenburg has always been a fixer, but her latest attempt to repair her marriage left it more damaged than ever before.
Now trapped in a vicious game of cat and mouse with the man she thought she knew, Ainsley must do what it takes to put out the fire their arrangement ignited, but it won’t be that simple.
As Peter closes in on her, Ainsley finds herself driven down a path of paranoia and fear. Her only hope relies on her ability to trust her instincts, but they’ve let her down before. This time, there’s so much more at stake, and the secrets waiting to be revealed will change everything.
Whom can she trust when her world is up in flames? One wrong decision could cost her everything she has left—her family, her home, and her life.
With a final showdown looming, Ainsley must decide what she’s willing to let burn in order to survive. As the blaze continues to heat up, it’s only a matter of time before someone must atone for their sins.

“It had been a mistake to come here.”

After receiving the most shocking text of her life, Ainsley is in a panic. Her plan failed. Now, she has to figure out how to keep her kids safe while staying one step ahead of Peter.

Being on Kiersten’s arc team, I read this book when it first came out, so I knew what happened. But hearing the story versus reading it was a completely different experience.

The voice actors were fantastic. George Newbern was the absolute perfect Peter. The voice, the tone, it was so spot on. I really didn’t think I could despise this character more, but hearing his perspective and dialogue spoken was bananas.

This series is excellent, but I must say listening to it is on an entirely different level. It changed everything.

Peter is such a terrible human, and having that character brought to life was both awesome and gross. Sarah Mollo-Christensen was a fantastic Ainsley.

I still love how redeeming this book is for Ainsley and how despite having done bad things, she can always see the goal and know her purpose: to protect her children.

A mother’s love is no joke, and Ainsley was a momma bear ready to attack. This was such a great audiobook, and I was taken through many emotions.

I would definitely recommend listening to this series, and it’s such a wild ride.
