I really enjoyed the plot but Lexie really got on my nerves by the end. And I thought the last chapter was completely at odds with the rest of the book. That said, I like this writer, the narrators were excellent, and it held my attention.

Love this series

I really love this series, the characters, the amazingly complicated plots, the narrator. A perfect listen.

Bit boring

I’d forgotten why I had given up on this series. I find the main characters boring, and the plots aren’t exciting enough to make up for that. The narrator is good, but there just isn’t enough light and shade in her voice. Not for me.

Off to a great start

This is the first story in this series, and it’s excellent. Believable characters; plausible, complicated story; excellent narration; 5 more stories in the series at time of writing. Happy days. As another reviewer remarked it’s so refreshing for the main character to be fairly ordinary, really good at her job, with no obvious major personality flaws. Already downloaded No2 with great anticipation. Highly recommended.

I can’t recommend this writer and this series highly enough. The main characters have matured as the series has progressed, and we get just enough of back stories to explain actions and motives. The plots are complicated but logical. Ms Lennon does her author and characters justice. I can’t wait for the next one.

Really enjoying this series

Plots are complicated, characters are well drawn and believable, Imogen Church is an excellent narrator. What’s not to love? Highly recommended

I’m really enjoying this series of books. Lisa Regan really knows how to write a complicated but mostly plausible plot. The characters are well written, I can empathise with a lot of their emotions which helps the listener understand some of their more bizarre actions. Josie can be a bit irritating, holding back information or acting recklessly, but on the whole she’s plausible. Eilidh Beaton is an excellent narrator who does justice to the characters and the plot. Highly recommended

This is a well plotted story with believable characters. The clues are followed and each one leads on to the next. I did work out who the killer is, but that didn’t spoil my enjoyment. I’m looking forward to hearing the entire series. Highly recommended.

I understand that it was well written and a clever plot, but I didn’t really like any of the characters except Ella!

Ok, but the romance was unbelievable

This was a long story, the goodies were so good they became completely unbelievable, and the entire strand involving the PI could easily have been cut. Not one of her best
