More Than Satisfied my Mermaid and Mystery Obsession

She’s done it again. Another brilliant book from Dorothy Koomson.
The pace is perfect and the opening chapter draws you right in.
I myself love mermaids so the title intrigued me from the off. The descriptions of the places in Brighton are so good that I can picture them vividly in my head. Another book that has made me want to visit Brighton at least once in my lifetime.
Twists and turns that leave you thinking “just one more chapter” over and over again.
Definitely a book I’ll read again and again and again.

Good book bad performance

I really enjoyed the book but the lady reading it wasn’t the best. She didn’t have a voice that makes you want to listen to the book. Overall it was a good book though.

Couldn’t finish

I honestly hate writing bad reviews but I could only manage to get about a third of the way through this book so I think that warrants writing done my thoughts.

I use audible to listen to books when I go on long runs. What I was finding with the Brighton mermaid was that the story was so slow after an hour and a half run barely anything had happened. It was incredibly slow. I love a murder mystery and appreciate that sometimes slow story progression builds tension but this was too much. I wouldn’t recommend this book.

another great read

filled with mystery and intrigue, who do you trust and who do you believe, I didn't get any clues to what was going on which was revealed chapter by chapter.
