I have enjoyed all of the Lottie books, I hope there are more to come as they are so well written and read.

Beautifully written, wonderfully read

A superb story of love and heartache, in no way “cheesy”, just a great story with meaning and read with so much feeling. I was so sad when it ended. Susan Lewis is a terrific writer, I’m so glad I found these books, a world away from my usual crime novels but equally as enthralling.

A decent DCI and psychologist story

I really enjoyed the way this planned out, never saw the protagonist coming and no ridiculous story lines. The narrator was easy in the ear. All in all, I’m glad I have found this series and am off to get book 2. After all my favourites (Ryan, Gallena, Logan McRae etc) I’m delighted to have a new series to listen to.

Love this series

Absolutely first class story, totally engaging and well written and beautifully read. I hope it’s not just me that laughs out loud here and there too, I love the Scottish sense of humour. I think the books have developed as they’ve gone along and have been less violent but more interesting. Will be sad when I’m done with them.

Awful narration good story

I like the Logan stories but what a shame they changed narrator as this one is so loud that it’s off putting

Complicated storyline, worth your time

The last book in the series (so far?) and I have enjoyed every one of them. Jessie is a bold and bossy character but is a great foil to DCI Gilchrist. Some of the characters are unlikable but that’s life, especially in the world of crime. The procedural elements are clearly written, but oh, the bosses! A great series.

Such wonderful stories of excellent people, troubled but devoted to duty and doing the right thing. I hope we see more from Carol and Tony, ten books is not enough!

So sorry that this has come to its natural end but what a journey it has been! Great writing, excellent characters and development of the characters, very consistent and enjoyable. Highly recommend this series. If you haven’t read it yet, you are in for a treat.

What a series, an unusual woman, and unusual series but what a set of characters, they kept me interested and engaged throughout the series. I shall miss them all.

An interesting story with several strands, not the usual detective story at all.
I found the narration over harsh on my ear but tried to get used to it, a different style I suppose. I shall be looking for the next in this series with interest.
