    Story

    I absolutely loved this book and although the listener knows from the beginning where it is going this did not detract from my enjoyment. The multiple narrators really brought the story and characters to life and added to the listening experience. This is so much more than your average chick lit and I was so involved with all of the characters and their stories that I felt rather bereft when it was over! I am a huge fan of Jojo Moyes earlier novels but found 'Me Before You' a disappointing listen - primarily due to the appalling narration. This was a welcome return to form and a compelling, uplifting listen.

    This is the first Lucy Dillon book I have read or listened to and without doubt it is my favourite listen of the year so far. I loved the characters, the story, the narration and could not stop listening. It is an intelligent chick lit book, mostly free of the cliches that so many chick lit authors use. It is beautifully written and ultimately life affirming.

    A few spliffs, a spot of mild S&M, phone through the copy of tomorrow's front page, catch up with the latest from your mystery source - could be big, could be very big - in fact, just a regular day at the office for free-wheeling, substance-abusing Cameron Colley, a fully paid-up Gonzo hack on an Edinburgh newspaper. The source is pretty thin, but Cameron senses a scoop and checks out a series of bizarre deaths from a few years ago - only to find that the police are checking out a series of bizarre deaths that are happening right now. And Cameron just might know more about it than he'd care to admit....
