Good, but too similar to Washington Poe!

I did enjoy this but having listened to the Washington Poe series I expected something different and this wasn't really. The main character is also a police detective from Cumbria, drives the same car, has planning problems with the remote land he bought and lives on, is single and also has issues with authority. Too many similarities which is strange as you would have thought the author would be conscious of this, but not so and ultimately not as good as the previous series.

weak story and terrible narration

i stuck with this but the story is poor, made all the worse by the 'sing song' narration. She made the tough evil character sound like a weasly, sniffly 12yr old! I wouldn't waste a credit, it's poor unfortunately.

Enjoyed first half

The first half kept me interested enough but the second half was repetitive, very depressing and about 5 chapters too long.

My new favourite!

I loved this book, if you are looking for action or gripping cliff hangers, this isn't for you.This is a beautifully written story about one girls journey through life dealing with loss, love and loneliness.

Really quite dull!

This has such great reviews, but it is a very dull story, nothing much happens, I dont get why people love it so?

I wasn't always in the mood for all the anger, hatred and effing and jeffing that constantly poured out, but other times it made me laugh out loud. It's definitely worth a listen, the narrator is fabulous, a very different take on crime!

i really tried to like this book, but all the main character does is moan and droan on about what a failure she is, i found i was feeling really down myself after listening to a chapter or two, really heavy going....

Predictable with poor narration

Narration was just a serious of statements, no emotion or suspense created, very dull to listen to. Story was really unbelievable, couldn't wait for it to finish so don't get the rave reviews??

It took me the first couple of chapters to get into this book, but from then I loved it! It made me smile and made me cry, beautifully written, best book I've read by far in 2019.

Beautiful narration and characters.

This book is up there in my top 5 ever listened to. The narration is fabulous and so easy to listen to, I loved all the characters and found the story so compelling I didn't want it to finish. Beautiful
