Rachel Abbott never fails to have me wishing I had nothing to do but listen to her books all day and night! This one beat all my expectations! Brilliant book. Lisa Coleman great narration as always. Thoroughly recommend.

Brilliant series. I am addicted! Very good production and storylines. Would recommend. Also not so ling as a full 10+ hour book.

Bit too long for my liking but maybe in book form would feel less so than audiobook

A few things along the way just seemed a little far fetched for me. Have read Robert Goddard before and seemed very enthralling but really don’t feel this was anything special.

This is the five minute meditation. There are others of various different lengths which are basically the same but I find this five minute one is a great way to recharge whilst sitting at my desk first thing in the morning or just after lunch. It is much easier to find a quick five minutes rather than keep putting off starting a meditation practice because you don’t have 15-20 minutes free.

Fantastic

This was only a relatively short book but was thoroughly enjoyable. Quite a few twists. Overall a fantastic listen.

Had me gripped right from the beginning

Would you listen to The Magpies again? Why?

No, but only because I don't listen or read fiction twice.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Magpies?

Difficult to say, I really enjoyed it, was kind of second guessing a few of the major points in the story but it still really had me hooked. I have been walking the dogs longer, walking round the house with the earphones on and even tidying out my email at work so I could concentrate on getting to the end asap!!

Which character – as performed by Elliot Hill – was your favourite?

I think Jamie was well performed.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I didn't laugh or cry at the book but I really got quite wound up by some of the chapters, especially towards the end (don't want to say for fear of spoiling it). I really wanted to just grab Jamie and tell him to stop and get out of the situation, but I can relate to why he didn't even though I would have been long gone!

Any additional comments?

I am really enjoying Mark Edwards books - this is about the 3rd or 4th I have listened to and am now researching which one is my next listen - pointless really as I will listen to that in a couple of days and go to the next one so it's academic. I have to listen to all of this author's novels - He is brilliant. Well done!

Wow! Couldn't stop listening to this one

Really made me squirm in parts and even up to the end didn't know how it was going to finish. Very very good audiobook. Well worth the time and money.

I really did enjoy this book. Believable characters with believable stories. Maybe I loved it even more as it starts in Italy and the main male character loves Italian cooking, plus there are a few Italian words thrown around. It is just a really nice easy book to listen to even though I am sure it will hit a few chords with some people for some of the storylines. Very believable and thoroughly enjoyable. Looking out for the next one now!
