Another great mystery from Joy Ellis. I love Jackman and Evans and the team. I eagerly anticipate the next book.
Once again, Richard Armitage proves what a brilliant choice he is. He brings the characters to life so skilfully.

I bought this audiobook to hear Richard Armitage and as always his voice and acting bought quality to the text. At first I found the jump from his voice to Grace’s American accent quite jarring but found a few chapters in that I was enjoying her chapters too. I found myself eye rolling at times but overall I enjoyed this audiobook for what it is. If you don’t enjoy this type of fiction at all then it’s probably not for you but I enjoyed listening to this while I walk.

Gripping

This is a compelling crime novel that I couldn’t wait to listen to the next chapter. I really liked the camaraderie of the police team headed up by DI Jackman. I’m going to immediately look for more books in this series.
Richard Armitage is a fantastic Narrator. He changed between accents effortlessly to portray different characters. I could listen to anything if he is narrating it.

I’ve read books by Louise Bay before and loved them. I thought I’d try a new medium and downloaded this to listen to rather than read. The male narrator sounded just like the comedian Rich Hall so I spent a while trying not to picture him as Sam. I don’t know whether I would have enjoyed this more if I’d read it. This is the first time I’ve listened this genre and maybe it just isn’t for me. I found myself rolling my eyes at times when the characters were endlessly procrastinating and maybe if I’d skim read those parts it wouldn’t have been as annoying.

Loved this

I was initially quite disappointed that Lou wasn’t leading the Parisian lifestyle I had imagined for her at the end of Me Before You. Her journey through grief and the unexpected link to Will made for a great story. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. Anna Acton was the perfect narrator. I thought she made Lou come to life. I’m now going to have a look for other titles she has narrated.
