Synopsis:
The New York Times best-selling author - and Cosmopolitan‘s editor-in-chief - returns with a sizzling thriller in which an ordinary woman flees the scene of a murder and realizes it’s not just the law that’s hunting her.
When Lake Warren learns that her husband, Jack, is suing for full custody of their two kids four months after their separation, she’s pretty certain that things can’t get any worse. The upside is that she’s working with the Advanced Fertility Center as a marketing consultant, alongside the attractive, flirtatious Dr. Keaton. But the morning after their one-night stand, Lake finds Keaton with his throat slashed and discovers that things can indeed become worse—they can become deadly. So as not to jeopardize her case for custody, Lake is forced to lie to the police.
Having just been intimate with a man who has been murdered, and wanting to protect herself from being charged with the crime, she begins her own search for the truth. Meanwhile, the police start looking at her closely, people at the clinic start treating her with hostility, and strange clues begin dropping—quite literally—on her doorstep, and Lake realizes that she is dangerously close to dark secrets, both about Keaton and the clinic. But can Lake stop what she’s started before it’s too late?

My Review:
I just stumbled upon Hush by Kate White while browsing my online library, and I am certainly pleased that I did!  I would more so give this book a 3.5 rating, rather than a solid 4, but since I can't give half stars, the book wasn't so horrible that I couldn't give it the higher star.  The only reason I would rate it the 3.5 was that some of the things that the main character Lake did, just absolutely drove me batty, leaving me screaming at her while listening!!

That being said, I certainly wouldn't mind trying out another book by Kate White, because I felt like she wrote a good, solid mystery and suspense novel!  Although I did have conflict with some of her character's actions, I did enjoy the cast of characters that were in the book!  I also enjoyed the plot of the story and just the whole story line in general.

The narrator, Aimee Jolson, did a great job of keeping me entertained throughout and followed the highs and lows of the book nicely!  She was a smooth, crisp, clean reader that was pleasant to listen to.  I wouldn't hesitate to listen to another book narrated by her!

Overall, I did enjoy Hush, and my only real complaint about the book was some of the, "What were you thinking" moments that I found throughout, especially the beginning of the book!  However, I think that part of it made the story what it was!  I will seek out other books by Kate White and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others that they read Hush!

Would I Recommend This Book to Others?
