Publisher's Summary

DI Hillary Greene is called out to attend a suspicious death at Three Oaks Farm in the picturesque village of Steeple Barton. 

The large farmhouse is filled with music and revellers, but when she steps into the farm’s cowshed, Hillary finds a dead bride. Dressed in a sumptuous white wedding gown, the young, beautiful redhead has clearly been strangled. But not everything is what it seems, and the victim turns out to be at the centre of a web of jealousy and intrigue in the close-knit village. Many of the villagers have a motive for murdering her, but they’re not giving up their secrets easily. 

Can Hillary discover the real reason for this brutal crime and cope with the spiralling revelations about her dead ex-husband?

Competent but dull

Good to listen to while gardening or, perhaps, sleeping. The narrator plods doggedly onwards, sometimes seeming dangerously close to running out of puff before the end of the sentence, and not paying too much attention to the pronunciation of difficult words. A leaden book with a well-matched narrator.

Abandoned due to overlong sentences ...

The story and central character are intriguing and I'd like to know who/why dunnit but not enough to bother to finish this book ... weird pronunciation by the narrator + amazingly long, boring, endlessly descriptive sentences put me off. This author should try to emulate Agatha Christie's short, pithy sentences.

Sad twist in the tail

Hilary Green achieves results without resorting to feminine whiles. Clever, unsentimental. Hard slog and intuition both contribute

Rubbish Narrator

How did Audible allow this OK book be ruined by such awful narration ? The reading was like a dirge with the only inflections being in the wrong places- especially on the last word of a sentence The mispronunciation of quite ordinary words was also jarring Come on Audible You have lots of fabulous readers I won't be ordering any other book narrated by Gemma Dawson

Average

The reader has a nice voice but a really annoying way of never pausing. Some weird pronunciation, too, of quite common words. The story is quite listenable-to but rather lacklustre and, somehow, you don't build any empathy for or dislike of any of the characters. I didn't manage to finish it and I don't really care what happens to Hillary.

Easy to listen to but......

The story holds the attention quite well. The narrator needs a lot of lessons in pronunciation, as several words are completely misread. Gemma Dawson s voice is pleasant enough but she is not quite able to carry off the timbre of male speech.

Good story

I've been enjoying other books in this series. I thought that this was really good too. I liked the narrator's voice, and her reading most of the time, however it was jarring when she pronounced well-known terms letter by letter instead of the way we used to hearing them. Why don't the publishers provide narrators with with pronunciation of words which are not totally common or obvious? e.g. SOCO is normally read as 'sockoh' and Magdalene in Oxford as 'Mordlin'
