30 years in the making and well worth the wait...a captivating story on a topic seldom written about with such insight, with characters brought to life by outstanding narration. Also interesting to hear from the author and narrator at the end. Well done ladies...such a dynamic duo.

I absolutely loved this audiobook and found myself making excuses to linger longer in the car just so I could finish a chapter before heading in to work each morning lol. I found the storyline innovative and fresh and couldn't help but wonder how she dreamt it up. The characters were realistic and stayed true to form throughout the book. I enjoyed the narration and found the depiction of Diane hilarious at times. A book of depth, that layered the story in just the right way, at just the right time that the 'who-dunnit?' was almost inconsequential to the enjoyment of each character's story. The fact that it included a life lesson was an unexpected bonus. Highly recommended audiobook.

Sensational!

A very well researched and written novel that showcases Australian history and colloquialisms to make for an intriguing and different storyline. The narration was spot on, with the characters brought to life in an easy to listen to format. The lead character was likeable and relatable, which coupled with the remaining ensemble of creative characters gave the author plenty of scope to develop a hard to pick conclusion. There is nothing ordinary or familiar about this novel and I highly recommend the audiobook version.

Overall an interesting concept for a storyline, however I wouldn't say it was gripping or thrilling or overly intriguing. I think it is a little far fetched to believe this was a viable long term solution to her 'problem 'or even plausible. Easy to listen to though, which is probably the best aspect of this audiobook.
