A great story, well narrated. Cleverly spinning the recent past and present. Thoroughly enjoyable. Ordering another Cara Hunter right now!

A modern tale, slow in places. Nonetheless I wanted to hear it through and enjoyed it.

A modern tale, well written and narrated. I wanted to get to the next chapter, share their lives and frustrations and fears and joys. An excellent story.

For me I found the constant harping back to Gina’s mother irritating. It wasn’t the best- but each to their own.

It draws you into the lives of so many people - you find your mood going up and down as the story unwinds, rooting for this or that not to happen. Marian Keyes narrating it is super special. I loved it.

I’ve read them all in sequence so maybe am getting a bit jaded. Ragmullen is more dangerous than Midsomer! Over all, I enjoyed it.

It was at my full horror level but I did finish it. There are a lot worse out there, I know, and I will read others write by him.

I felt this was a little convoluted, trying too hard to make a story. Overall, a little far fetched but I still enjoyed it.

Gripping story taking you with Alex, annoyed with her, hopeful for her - the full range of emotions. A story of now - I loved it.

The story is ok, just. The narrator has the most grating voice and delivery. Either it’s poorly written and the narrator reads it like a robot or, it did occur to me, it’s a poor translation - verbatim which doesn’t convey the full sense. I persevered out of sheer pig headedness but mostly because I can’t bear the car radio and more Brexit talk!
