A rollercoaster thoroughly enjoyed

Great characters that you can instantly buy into. The narrator spoke very slowly and I listened towards the end on a slightly faster speed.
A good listen and I want to know what happened to Tasha.

A book to make you smile and cry but a ultimately about the strength of friendship, brilliantly narrated.

Taking respectful dip into a shameful part of history without completely immersing you in the horror. This book is not an account of life in a concentration camp and whilst it tugged on my emotions, it made me smile and cry but did not leave me wrung out. I learnt about the rabbit girls, and liked how Miriam drew strength from their stories to endure her struggle. A good book that takes you full circle.

Well constructed thriller

Chilling subject matter but keeps you listening.

The characters are well rounded and I found them believable. I was interested in what happened to them. I liked that the focus wasn’t on the criminal but on how his crimes had effected those left behind. How they have or haven’t moved on and that the reporter (usually vilified) was one of the people helping.

Good story telling

This story is fiction that touches fact.

Harrowing details that may just make you think twice on where you stand on the death penalty.

Believable character and a story that flows easily.

Disappointingly contrived

I loved the first book my life as a country album it was fresh and it touched the heartstrings this is a disappointing sequel in comparison I wish I hadn’t downloaded it was just to contrived and cliched for my liking.

Jack Reacher fans are faithful but this was lacking something

The formula has got too predictable. I’d have liked to see a twist in the tail but it never came. Reacher helps an old guy out by killing rival Russian and Ukrainian gangs.
Put their money into the old guys bank and then walks away having assassinated everyone.
The style of narration is like a series of nées bulletin one liners - drove me nuts and couldn’t wait to get through it.

A good read/listen

Keeps you guessing. I didn’t guess the perpetrator. I realised what the underlying storyline would finally uncover. Dr Alex was an interesting character and I’d like to know more about him.

This was a left field book for me.

A book that will make you smile and make you cry, properly cry too! I really loved the way the author built the characters and the format of the story. The story could resonate with anyone. Songs that intertwine our lives at certain times.

I want to read the next one but hope the freshness won’t be lost.

A touchy storyline well handled

I was thankful to the author for alluding to the abuse and no more.
The story is both heartbreaking and heartwarming in equal measure. The relationship between Evan and his grandparents was central to his recovery. It should never be underestimated.

Another great Lottie Parker book

Kept me guessing and Lottie made less crazy assumptions than in previous novels.

The family are moving on but poor old Ragmullin is once again under the grips of a broken soul who is wreaking havoc. A really easy on the ear listen.
