Narrator is annoying, dialog ridiculous, sex scenes laughable. The whole thing improbable. Like your most annoying relative trying to tell you what happened on tv last night
I love murder mysteries, I did not think the erotic parts were necessary myself and it came out the blue when I was listening and I was not expecting it - I was always waiting for the clues and to find out who the killer was.
Overall I enjoyed it right till the end X
I know many say these books are very long but I loved it and listened to it in just over a week - 23 hours! As I had read #3 the characters were familiar and I did not have difficulty following them, even if I hadn't been introduced to them I think I would have coped.
What a suspense, oh my the body count was horrific. The characters were great and the best of it I have the next book on my shelf to read this time. I thought the narrator was so-so, no character differentiation, however she didn't detract too much from the book, just didn't give it added value. 4.5 stars.
After seeing all those great reviews I was looking forward to listening to this book. But there were so many characters to try to keep up with and the plot was just completely unbelievable. Although I am quite willing to suspend my disbelief this story took it way too far. I did like the two main characters, but I felt sorry fir them being stuck in this silly story!
"Too closely related"
Enjoyed it very much but felt there were too many people in it, particularly relatives! Was inclined to get mixed up and have to go back to listen again.
"gripping. loved it."
twists and turns. Made me really invest in the characters. long book but worth every minute.
The plot kept me guessing all the way through, narration was excellent. If I have one tiny complaint it's that there were a lot of raunchy parts to this story, which is fine when you're reading a book, but when you're listening out loud in the garden and you notice your neighbours have suddenly gone quiet. Ever so slightly embarrassed.
"Good story but ...."
The pace of the story kept being interrupted by sex scenes. Not sure if I will listern to the next in the series
"Took a while"
Overall I enjoyed the book and story line but struggled with the tone of the reader, she has a nice voice but the accent and dips in her tone were irritating, when I was in a noisy inviroment I could hear her one minute and not the next.
Well written as all her books are. Suspense up to the end. Highly recommended to all fans of a mystery that gives no clue till the last 10 minutes
"Really good book"
This was a really good book. It had scarey bits yuk bits and throughout a lovely romance growing. Nice
Twists and turns, couldn't put it down. Would highly recommend this audible book.. Looking forward to the next book to listen to
"Exciting doesn't cover it"
This was a real galloping story, little pause in the action. A reall "page turner"
Everything, but could have done with a little less graphic sex.
No, but was delighted with this performance
Very much so, but it was just too long
Great book, just found out it is a series, so will be looking for the others.
Compulsive listening. Lots of twists and turns. Couldn't put it down. Recommend it if you want absorbing thought provoking story
