Loved this book. Fun and interesting and completely entertaining. Not a serious murder mystery but clever, I might be slow but I didn’t figure out what was going on til right near the end. Narration more than adequate. I’ve purchased the next one!

Not for me

Interesting enough story but the narration made it difficult for me to follow. Aline Templeton is a great author but no more from this narrator for me.

Better than Stranger Child but still not as good as the one before that. Sleep Tight was a great book, read by better narrators too, so maybe that helps. This book had loads and loads of potential, I loved the premise, but it just missed the mark. I’m done with this author.

The previous book was sooooo good, how could this be by the same author? The plot was very unbelievable, I was willing to let that slide but the writing didn’t improve on it enough. My disbelief was no suspended for a second! I don’t understand all the high ratings, this book is mediocre at best and the narration was monotonous. Sorry, it’s barely a three from me.

A thoroughly entertaining listen! Very different from the usual but a great premise and I can’t wait for more stories with these characters. If you don’t like this book, you’re a “fart head” 😉

This!

Can’t understand the high ratings on this book. I struggled to get through it, I had to start fast forwarding through the “romantic” scenes, of which there was a couple too many. I eventually gave up with still two hours to go. Quite a few hours could be trimmed from this book in fact and it would be far more interesting. I’m not really sure what this book is trying to be, but suspense it is not. It’s more a tortured love story/dragged out family drama. Great for falling asleep to though.

I loved this series so far but this instalment misses the mark. Struggled to stay interested in the story and the characters. Looking forward to more but better.
