I love queer representation as much as the next lesbian, but the romance in this story felt kind of unnecessary/out of the blue/"tacked on". I would have preferred it be signposted better (i.e. more chemistry) or even just... left out altogether!! I don't actually think it served much purpose in the novel.

I did find the setting fascinating and the story slow but also very compelling (and it does pull at the heart strings.) It finished very suddenly and I would have liked a bit more. I also would have liked more on Dr Lynn.

The audiobook performance jumped a little (some parts weirdly cut out occasionally when I listened) and is set up in 4 parts rather than chapters. I prefer chapters.

All in all, though, I'm glad I read this book and some parts have really stuck with me!

It wasn't bad, but a vital clue that was CENTRAL to solving the murder -and- central to an important twist in the book was... not scientifically correct. This bugged me and left me less satisfied with the book overall.

Otherwise, it was an enjoyable (if predictable) lightweight read and performed well by Charlotte Worthing.
