It would be easy to find fault as this story unwraps, pull it apart and dismiss it and to criticise this book but it is much more worthwhile to be drawn in and distinguish the worthy tale woven in.

If you loved Six of Crows then you are in for one hell of a ride because this truly ups the ante: get ready for moments of accord with the characters, moments of delight, moments of suspense, moments of giggles, moments of indignation, moments of appreciation, moments with your heart in your mouth, moments with tears in your eyes and moments with a heavy heart and to have a smile of satisfaction as the tale draws to its end.

Enjoy.

Refreshingly sound suspense tale

This is a tale woven around a really complex quandary that you will have already formed an opinion consciously or otherwise and gently but persistently challenge you in way that you will only be satisfied with your Audiobook- or book- choice.
Centred around a large family embedded in a privileged, and proudly conscientious, community with a focus on motherhood, privilege, race and the coming to age challenge. In no specific order!
Enjoy.

A sexy, heart lightening listen to make you smile(& gasp with the cheeky pleasure)

It is hard no to float along with the lightness and appreciate the balance with the sensitivity and the sexiness without needing to think about it in depth to deconstruct it.
If one wanted to pick it apart, criticise it and dismiss it, that is obviously a possible option. But why bother? There is to much harshness in the world these days to waste your time, energy and effort with that
***a heads up that it has extremely intimate moments, but sidesteps feeling like you are listening to explicit, pornographic description that could offense.

Listen & be captivated with delight

A composition of a enchanting, penetrating and seductive style of writing that will draw you with an off beat, quirky and rawly intimate unraveling, exploring and then entwining of heartwarming romance. One that sidesteps a cliche and will charm with the layers of subtlety without boring you with inane platitudes or improbable characters.

Definitely a lighthearted, easy story that will leave you touched with the vulnerability and intensity of a unexpectedly satisfactory narrative and wistful longing for a tantalising turn of events.
