Didn’t get into this. Narrators couldn’t save it. Knew not to continue when I groaned when I saw 6 hours was still to go. Not enough going on - suspense of the reveals to come not there. Obvious plot line to come (more than usual in this genre). Have returned.

I understand that a writer creates suspense in a story. However this was, at 25%, so full of descriptive wording the story itself got lost. Te back stories are coming out however the adjective use is excessive and I tune out. Not to the AL Jackson level I have come to know and love

Started with promise. Progressed to characters who one second fought then were holding hands and the jump wasn’t in a good way, just scatty. The “revelation” wasn’t something that encouraged me to continue. Have returned.

Not a great narrator

The narrator doesn’t vary bettered characters much. There was very little change in tone (or none at all) as the character changed. This pick be out down to the writing too. Not keen to continue. Have returned after about 15%

Poor editing and not MMS best

Not up to the usual standard of Meghan March. Most trilogies I’m so excited to listen to and usually can’t hold out til they’re all out so am awaiting the next instalment for a.month. I his one is just not such a gripping story as usual. Hard to say why. Characters and storyline aren’t as enticing. Also, there are sections of the male narrator where he’s clearly re-recorded it, in a different location and with different sound equipment. Odd and obvious.

Didn’t grab me. Irritating writing and SO many characters without definition so it just became a list of names. Returned at only 5% in. As much as I could handle.

Repetitive

The writing was repetitive. The same conversations happened and then copy and pasted sections. Not great character development and sudden love is just not good enough. Have returned.

I get that she’s Irish. The male character is Irish, so I truly appreciate the authentic accent use. However she doesn’t really change it for the female character who is meant to be American. Just annoyed me. Also the story drags a bit and seems to brush over big events. Returned.

Have returned about five chapters in. The characters and story didn’t grab me. I might Re-buy later but currently I’ve had too many non-starters so need a good one before another mediocre

Not for me

Predictable. Not up to the Louise Bay standard I expect and have enjoyed in the past. All a bit generic. Have returned.
