Jen has discovered a secret. If she tells her husband Jason, will he forgive her for telling the truth? If she tells someone else in Jason's family, she'd not only tear them apart but could also find herself on the outside. But if she keeps this to herself, how long can she pretend nothing is wrong? Jen knows the truth - but is she ready for the consequences?

What did you like best about Skeletons? What did you like least?

This is not my usual genre of book, but I thought it looked interesting. The storyline was okay to begin with and then I felt it became drawn out. Once the skeleton was uncovered I became bored, but persevered until the end as I wanted to know how it ended.

If you’ve listened to books by Jane Fallon before, how does this one compare?

No this is the first one.

What aspect of Penelope Rawlins’s performance might you have changed?

Unfortunately I found the narrators 'voices' quite off putting. It was as if she was trying too hard.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

No, I don't think so.

Any additional comments?

Unfortunately it just didn't suit me.
