There are two sides to every story: yours and mine, ours and theirs, His & Hers. Which means someone is always lying.

Anna Andrews finally has what she wants. Almost. She’s worked hard to become the main TV presenter of the BBC’s lunchtime news, putting work before friends, family, and her now ex-husband. So, when someone threatens to take her dream job away, she’ll do almo

I am so bored that I am actually jealous of Rachel for getting killed.

There are three sides of stories: His, hers and truth! A TV presenter of BBC ‘s lunchtime news and a chief police officer/let’s rephrase as “DCI” find themselves tangled with brutal murders of women who shared a common past, graduated from same high school, living their different lives in Blackwood. A friendship bracelet positioned with their corpses.

What are the connections of these two persons with the victims?

DCI Jack Harper was with the first victim at the night of her murder, having sex

This a mind blowing psychological thriller in every sense of the word!! If you are looking for a book that will keep you guessing at the “killer” until the very end, this is the one for you. I was convinced I knew what was going on until the very end, and I was very wrong!! The ending was great and tied up the novel brilliantly!

The first POV is that of Anna Andrews, a news journalist that has finally been working in her dream job. She is anchoring a noon hour bro

This is going to be a super short review, because you need to just go into this one blind and let it take you on a wild ride. If you, like me, really disliked the author's previous novel, please know that this one is MUCH more on par with her first book. If you enjoy audiobooks, I cannot recommend that format for this book highly enough! The narrators are fantastic, including a mysterious third voice that becomes revealed toward the end. Content warnings for sexual assault and grooming, but over ...more

I have a rather weird way of rating mystery books . If by the end of revelation I say " WTF! JUST HAPPENED", it's a 5 star for me .
After I completed this book last night I was shook for like 15 mins and I decided to rate it 5 stars but upon closure inspection I realized that there are some problem with this book!

Why this is a good read?

• The main theme that there are three sides of a story mine , yours and the truth.

Alice Feeney does it again! She draws you into the story with a superb start and then takes you on a jaw dropping journey until the end. In fact, I think my jaw fell open so many times it’s fixed in the gaping mouth position! I might have uttered the odd expletive as another shocker clobbers you! The story as the title implies is told from two perspectives. ‘His’ is DCI Jack Harper, head of MCT in Blackdown, Surrey a quintessential, sleepy and beautiful English town in the stockbroker belt.

This is my first audio book from NetGalley Shelf. Twenty years ago I listened to an audio book, in my truck, and then listened to the nonfiction, How Not to Diet, recently so I'm a very novice audiobook listener. I had some difficulty with the app because it didn't start with the first chapter and then skipped chapters. I tried to go back and listen to anything I missed but the glitch made for a choppy listening experience. For this reason, I would have very much preferred reading the book but t ...more

This book takes the phrase ‘knock me over with a feather’ to a whole nother level cause . . .

I AM SHOOKETH!!!

I have never been played by an unreliable narrator quite like the way His & Hers did me. I must say I’m impressed—even though I also feel like I need to suspend my disbelief. Everything makes perfect sense in the end, but . . .

HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE??

Of course I've heard a lot of positive buzz for Alice Feeney.

Having now completed my first novel by her, His & Hers, I can definitely see what all the fuss is about.



This gripping-Adult Thriller follows three perspectives: his, hers and a mystery individual, that could be him, it could be her, or it could be someone else entirely.

Intrigued yet?



The her of this equation is BBC-television reporter, Anna Andrews.

Anna is quite an interesting character. I loved reading from her perspective.

I'm not sure I read the same book that so many others loved. I enjoyed her debut novel, but felt this one had too many coincidences in the plot.

I loved the way the author told the story with the his/her narrative, although at times it confused me (the ending twist). The back and forth kept me guessing and putting pieces together. I just never became invested in the characters, who were all very unlikable and even despicable in my opinion.

I would say it was pacy, but I didn't care for t

i had a lot of fun with this one. i love that there is not only one, but two unreliable narrators. it makes for a very interesting story of ‘he said, she said.’ both were equally convincing, so i was left guessing right up until the very end. there are a lot of red herrings, mixed with subtle clues that i was so upset i didnt catch sooner.

5.0 stars— I know this might not be a popular opinion, but after finishing “His & Hers” I would rate Alice Feeney as the best thriller writer out there today. I loved her first two novels and was excited to read her latest because whether you like her or not, Feeney is the Queen of Unexpected Twists. I see her books consistently score in the 3s on Goodreads which leaves me flabbergasted because her books are always so original and fun to read. “His and Hers” is my favorite Feeney book to date.

I listened to this entire audiobook in two sittings. Usually when I listen to audiobooks I listen to them over a week long time of commuting to work, but this audiobook hooked me from the start and I listened to the whole thing within 24 hours. This is probably my favorite thriller from Alice Feeney so far, I'm super impressed with this one. The mystery is so great, we are following Anna and Jack and they have this mysterious past together, and she works in the news and he is a detective. There ...more

“Sometimes I think I am the unreliable narrator of my own life.
Sometimes I think we all are.”
Isn’t that the truth? His and Hers is a murder mystery, but it’s also so much more. Anna had her dream job for two years, until the rug was pulled out from under her. So she accepts a news assignment back in her hometown, reporting on a murder.
Jack is the DI assigned to the case. Turns out, they have history. And both have history with the murder victims as well.
The chapters alternate between them. They

I loved a lot of things about this book.
Especially the way a clue would be dropped in one chapter, then shown in a different light, from a different point of view in the next chapter.

I also loved the weirded out vibes I was getting, not knowing what was happening, or who to trust. It was perfect, until it wasn't.

I'm not a fan of over-the-top endings and this one was just too much for me.

Soooo creepy!😱😱

Anna Andrews is a local TV reporter. She’s been given what looks to be the opportunity of her career. Her assignment, cover a murder that just happens to be in the village where she grew up. What a huge break! This should give her the “in” she craves. Only covering this crime may be a little too close to home for Anna to be impartial.

DCI Jack Harper is the lead investigator for the murder. But the web he’s casting is just a bit too tangled and complicated. Between personally knowi

What can I say ..... Alice Feeney has done it again. You have completely blown my mind with another amazing, addictive, keep me on the edge of my sofa, my head is spinning book ( Take a deep breathe)

The story of “His And Her” has 2 main characters. We have Detective Chief Inspector Jack Harper head of major crime in Blackdown in Surrey. He left the MET after a tragedy and is now investigating a murder in sleepy Blackdown. The victim is a woman he recognises and knows very well, this is a secret

Oh Alice!

Your prose is so enticing...making a cup of tea sounds so irresistible!

The musings of your characters so honest and thought provoking-
like when Anna tucked money into the food she gave the homeless girl, saying she didn’t mind if she spent the money on alcohol-after all-that is what she spent her money on too...

Your misdirection flawless, with plenty of plausible red herrings for us to suspect and then reject along the way!

Anna, a BBC reporter is asked to cover a murder in her home town, though she is reluctant to go but when the victim turns out to be one of her childhood friends she can’t leave. Jack is a detective working the case and has decided not to tell anyone he knows the victim... one of them knows more than they're letting on. Someone isn’t telling the truth...

My first audiobook from the publisher on NetGalley! I wasn't planning on reading His & Hers but couldn't resist downloading the audiobook, and I am so glad I did. I enjoyed listening to Richard Armitage & Stephanie Racine narrate the story, and they drew me into the story right from the start. I usually only listen while I am doing chores around the house, or I find myself too tired to read however, I found myself wanting to sit down and just listen to the story.

We all hide behind the version of ourselves we let the rest of the world see.

So, I've been sitting here debating, contemplating, letting this twisty, loopy, roller-coaster of a story marinate in my brain...yet I'm still not entirely sure how I feel.

There is not an author, currently writing, who can plot such devilishly good misdirection as Alice Feeney. She's the master. I'm always giddy to read her books because it's like diving into the deep...you never quite know what you

Holy shit! Alice Feeney is in a class all her own when it comes to the psychological thriller genre. This book, like her previous two, are CRAZY. I applaud her for not being afraid to push the envelope and to take things into uncomfortable territory without even batting her pretty little lashes. I truly admire that about her. I thought I had this one figured out and I certainly had my suspicions but just when you think you're a little smarty pants Feeney comes along and pulls the rug out from be ...more

I had such a good time reading this one and I definitely recommend checking it out especially if you have enjoyed other books by the author. This one was fun because the author didn't write herself into a corner as there were multiple options up until the big reveal.

Anna Andrews loves her job anchoring the noon hour news. She's less than thrilled when she's reassigned to cover a murder in Blackdown Woods, a place Anna wishes she could forget. Luckily, she has a couple of things in her purse that might help her get through the day.

DCI Jack Harper is investigating the murder in Blackdown. Jack is shocked when he sees who the victim is.
