I started listening to audiobooks at night during bouts of insomnia. I enjoy crime fiction, interesting biographies but will try anything.
I have enjoyed all of this series and liked the addition of Thea's mother in this story which follows a similar path as the previous ones. As the author has started another series, I wondered if she was getting bored of this series and I was hoping that the "Drew relationship" would be resolved but I suppose I will just have to "read" the next book.
"Lovely, no sex, wonderful British English."
Narrator is great. Could picture every scene. So nicely written. No soppy romance... good characters. Apparently there were prior books. I might get those too.
