Highly recommend that you read the series in order to understand the complexities of Jackson Brodie’s life. If you have then you know what to expect - lots of disparate stories dovetailing into one grand finale with a cast of flawed, some awful but some some lovely characters. Hope there will be another instalment.

Over the top but enjoyable.

Despite the plot being over the top and there not being anything new in the depiction of the main character, it was still a ‘page turner’ and enjoyable mystery/thriller.

Not for me

I never connected in any way with Valencia - perhaps this reflects more on me than the character. Narration was excellent.

Enjoyable cozy mystery.

Enjoyable first instalment in a contemporary cozy mystery with the main characters being Scotland Yard detectives. Good blend of humour, mystery and romance.

Listening to this book felt exactly like listening to a group of women friends telling about a defining moment/event in their lives. Deeply personal and thoughtful.

Series getting better.

For me, this was the best book in the series so far. It was great to see Kate have a bit of a romantic fling and her growing relationship with her niece was also enjoyable. The mystery had a lot of depth and this series continues to grow.

Such a beautiful story of two sisters. Set in Tasmania this wonderful story follows the lives of the two sisters, through all the highs and lows that life throws their way. As with all relationships there are periods of anger, frustration, hate but also love, caring, pride and sorrow. No character is without fault but the writing handles their lives with dignity and care. I absolutely loved this novel and the narration was also wonderful.

Wonderful story.

I absolutely loved this book. The narration was fabulous. Have lots of tissues handy. Don’t read too many reviews - go in blind and enjoy it.

A heartbreaking book so evocative, brutal and redemptive. Narration, by David Wenham, was perfect. The characters of Miles and Harry will remain with me a long time.

Really enjoyed this lovely dual timeline story. Both timelines were interesting and the island setting was beautiful. The story did end up tied in a pretty pink bow but that was to be expected. Narration was excellent.
