It has been quite some time since a book has ticked all my somewhat nerdy boxes. I am an avid Sherlock Holmes fan, but also enjoy a bit of sci-fy too. This book has been the absolute best recommended by Audible book for a long time - spot on!

I truly enjoyed this book. It’s target audience may be young adults, but I really feel that everyone can enjoy this well written and excellently narrated book. Can’t wait to hear more from Fionn and co.

Enthralling...

This is undoubtedly one of the best books I have had the pleasure to listen to. The narrators understanding of each character shone through. The story both bitter and sweet. The mystery running throughout enthralling...

Riveting...!

This isn’t my usual genre, but it pulled me in very quickly. I became invested in the individual stories developing throughout with an eclectic bunch of people who were brought together by the need for a cup of something nice. I have spent this entire day listening to and finishing it and despite it dredging up long past memories, it also felt cathartic too. I cried, I smirked and I rooted for each and every warm character who entered the door of this tea shop on the corner that I wished really did exist. It was narrated in a charming way, adding to the quirky yet delightful journey.

So very pleased I ignored negativity

What an intriguingly, war, funny, sad and above all wonderful tale of the human heart, tragedy and resilience. Having read some of the negative comments regarding the narrator, I was slightly wary, but went for it anyway. So very pleased I did. As for the narrator? I think her somewhat girlish tone was just right!

Another hit...

As with the first book of this new ‘Betty Church’ series, I thoroughly enjoyed, the often dark, yet somehow always witty and amusingly told stories. The characters continue to grow, as do my grins, and yes out loud laughs! I truly recommend M R C Kasasian as a writer as well as ingenious criminal mind!

Thoroughly enjoyable, rather off the wall mystery! Loved that it followed on from the wonderful Sydney Grice and March Middleton books. Looking forward to the next one...

An attention grabber!

This was a bit of a departure for me, and yet from the first I was invested in this story, it’s characters and extremely invested in the outcome! As for the outcome...a mass of twists and turns that left me breathless to the last!!!

As superb rollercoaster...

Seldom has a book piqued my curiosity as this one did from the outset. From there I was taken on an absolute rollercoaster of life in both it’s best and worst forms. It’s a gripping tale designed to both confuse, inspire and feel for each and every character, so very well written with a fullness that leaves you invested in every aspect of their lives. I cried, I gasped, but most of all I remained enthralled beginning to end. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. I will put stars against all the books I read, however, this is the first time I have felt it incredibly important to attempt to bring others into this fascinating and compelling book. Enjoy...

An enjoyable romp...

I’m a fan of the cosy crimes of Agatha Christie etc, therefore it was a delight to find a new, contemporary author who seems to be so well at home within this genre. Twists, turns,secrets and intrigue,all wrapped together in a story that has you guessing, gleeful or despairing at the next twist of the plot. Going to keep an eye out for more!
