I loved this book it was very well written and researched. The fact that it's read with an Irish lilt adds to the enjoyment. It made me laugh and cry and it was a joy to read. I've recommended it to several other already.

Rings a bell!

A lovely book which as it progressed I couldn't put down. I'd heard about this author from a radio program and thought I'd try one of her books. Really good read.

Having read the Seventh Victim written by Michael Wood I was eager to listen to another of his book. Being from Sheffield where the story for this book is set made me all the more interested to read "For Reasons Unknown" I found this book a chore and wanted it finished.I didn't like the narration or the story line. I'll be a bit more selective next time

A very well written book. The narrators did an excellent job. One of the best things about this book was that, unlike many other books, nothing was repeated just to pad the story out. Every moment, every word was fresh and I found myself replaying parts to make sure I didn't miss a thing.
will be listening to more by this author.

Fabulous book wonderful characters, couldn't put this one down. What an exciting if predictable read. What I enjoyed most about this Nora Roberts was the different characters.

Same story line, boy gets his girl.......

Same story line as all of the previous Nora Roberts books I've read., Boy gets his girl and they all live happily ever after. Problem with this book is that I didn't like the story line. I persevered but can't say that it was a worth while read. Defiantly not my favourite Nora Roberts.

long and drawn out

The story is ok but the overall book is long winded, I often forgot that I was actually listening to a book as it seemed to be rolling along in the background. Definitely couldn't be described as a gripping story. Start at chapter 49 and go from there
