At first I worried it was too complicated but once it got going I loved it. A bit like Clue in some respects but convincing and twisty.

A gentle but extremely entertaining book unlike any other. Great narrator great story.

Well worth a credit

Slow start but gathered pace. Worth persevering

A slow start - I almost gave up with the whining Gracie - but it was fab once it got going.

Though I guessed the plot before the big realisation I was still captivated to the end.

I’d recommend this if you like a woven web....

Slow to get into but worth persevering!

Interesting concept and great story marred only by one inexplicable event near the end of the book - don’t worry it’s not a spoiler. Otherwise it would hv been 5 stars.

Well worth a credit.

Waaaay too long

I rarely write reviews but felt I needed to in order to save your credits!!! This is slow, drawn out, dull and predictable.

I hate to criticise what is someone’s hard work but this is worth side stepping.


So, yes, it may be long, BUT

The prose from Connie is clever, well crafted, and engaging.

The book shows us we can all be fallible to a lesser or greater extent.

I don’t usually write reviews but this one needs someone waving a ‘yes - buy it’ flag.

It’s worth it.

Looooong slow. Not sure I’d recommend

So very little happens in hours shouts of listening. Maybe I’ve missed the point but I’d think VERY carefully before buying another Jo Nesbo Harry
Hole

Not as good as the previous ones

Please can the Narrator learn to pronounce Jackson’s sister’s name!!!! Niamh is pronounced Neeve. It drove me nuts ever time he called her ‘Nee-am’

Not as engaging as previous titles but am enjoying the series so doesn’t put me off at all

It took me a while to get drawn in but once I did I was gripped. A little far fetched in some ways but I did really enjoy it.

I’d definitely read more by this author

Perfect gentle summer read

Loved the narration which helped me love the characters as the individual stories are weaved together.

No spoilers- just very highly recommended if you’re looking for something a bit different and definitely feel good.

The ending made up for the slow middle

Don’t want to give anything away but I almost gave up at around the middle. The ending restored my enjoyment of the book.
