Publisher's Summary

Tamsin and her best friend, Michelle, have been inseparable since they were teenagers. Even now they spend all their time together, along with Patrick, Michelle's handsome husband.

So when Tamsin hears a rumour that Patrick is having an affair, she is furious and plots a scheme to catch him in the act using her assistant, Bea, as live bait. It should be foolproof. After all, Tamsin can trust Bea with anything...or can she?

Just not my cup of tea

I don’t know how I got through this. It was so slow to start and I almost gave up. Wish I had. I realised every time I finished listening to part of it I was left feeling dirty uncomfortable and fairly grumpy. But that’s me. Hope you enjoy it.

loved it

Dear Ms. Fallon,
Please write more books. I adore them all.
This book keeps you interested the whole time. Avoids the cliches of typical romances.

Fun Chick Lit

I have read a few of Jane Fallon's books by now, and though they very much follow the same formula, I enjoy them. She has sassy characters and even though I can guess where the story is going, it is usually fun and entertaining. I read a lot of crime fiction or historical fiction, but once in a while, I like to break out of those genres with something lighter and this book did the trick. I look forward to reading what she comes up with next!

Always The One Left Out

I couldn't tell the narrator switched up, I was so in love with Genevieve Swallow's characterization in the story.
Jane Fallon storyline was mediocre however the narrator keep my attention to the very very interesting twist of an ending. I don't want to give it away however my title kinda does? smile

Mediocre

Really didn't enjoy the narration. Some of the inflection on the sentences was on the wrong words which I found frustrating.
Story was Mediocre.

Poor start but got a lot better

Very poor start, the first 15 chapters are slow and boring. Stopped and restarting twice
After the first third the book got much better and resulted in a good book that was difficult to put down!
Enjoyable

Great Story

What made the experience of listening to Strictly Between Us the most enjoyable?

Great story but my goodness was Bea on half speed? So irritating! The pausing and extra pronunciation on some words and starts of sentences is really annoying!!!

The Tamsin character is fab and read really well. I have read several of Jane Fallon's books and this one is up there with the best

Which character – as performed by Antonia Beamish and Genevieve Swallow – was your favourite?

Tamsin definitely, Bea was read really badly, just hard to listen to with the drawn out starts of sentences I would avoid any book she is performing.
