it was like watching the movie, the depiction of the characters by the narrator's voice brings this to life in a way even I hadn't enjoyed the dramatisation. if you are a fan of classics and period drama this is for you!

DNF, so disappointed I wasted my money on this, kept hoping for the next book to be narrated better, no such luck, gave up on book 4 wish I could return. all part of a series so not like you get the whole picture, should come with a warning. don't normally review but...

astounding performance - the storyline was equally gripping, I upped my running just to get time to listen to this audio book series. if you like dark heroes and resilient heroines who love them then this is for you! I'm glad I waited for all 4 to be available before listening to the series. cant wait to read/listen about the rest of the guys on Peter's team especially Yan!!!

didn't like this one much, I found Hayley a bit too desperate allowing herself to be walked all over, gave in too readily. I didnt like Nikolai's attitude towards Hayley or his previous choice of
Desiree. I just couldn't get past his choices enough to like him. I finished the book because I can never not do so. I like this series as a whole but this one missed the mark.

Great story line,

Good old fashioned detective work. characters feel relatable and the intelligence of DI Dixon is endearing.
love that it feels so familiar all these places and brands. certain phrases so British and comforting as most stuff out there is American and can seem so unrelatable. The British stuff doesn't always hold my attention like this series has grabbed me. would definitely recommend.

good plot - narration questionable

the story was good. A but irritating at first until I understood why AJ acted the way he did then my heart just broke for him. the narration is what I found irritating. the female voices were okish although even Chloe's voice could grate as it sounded like a teenager. AJ's voice from the female narrator was terrible. it made everything that came from him bizzare and not the least bit sexy. it just put me off him and I could never picture him as the swoon worthy character he was meant to be, he just sounded blah
I'd recommend reading this one not listening.

I've only ever listened not read these books and this narrator is so irritating I just could not go beyond chapter 6. She makes it sound childish which is not in sync with the story line . the males end up sounding like a joke the whole thing is just not worth my money, I wish I had returned it but kept it too long before listening to it. I wouldn't recommend. maybe if you tried reading the experience would be better. unfortunately I don't care enough to try.

the most non alpha, alpha character I've ever cone across. Author t should not have called her that, made a big production about it and should have just left it to our imagination would have been happy to call her diva princess in my head and left it at that. the food issue again another big production which soon became irritating.
the rest of the characters were vapid to say the least. I would read a book about Lewis though he was about the only character that piqued my interest. the narrator didn't do much for the book I'm sorry to say...would not recommend.

I felt like I was a child again travelling through the mysteries found in a good book. my kids were irritated by my chuckles and frustrated when I told them to go read the book if they were so interested. can't wait to download the next book.

I downloaded these books a while back read one and abandoned them then when I read the second one I remembered why I had abandoned them. the storyline is not bad. the setting of it is where the problem lies. The female character I found irritating her backwards and forwards just did my head in. the male character well I couldn't make up my mind about him - sometimes he was alright other times I just didn't quite get what I needed from him. the whole ending to the saga was anti-climatic and again left me feeling is that It? the character that read him was flat with no change in intonation for different characters, the female narrater would have been better to read the whole book. Overall I felt dissatisfied by the whole thing.
