Excellent

I've listened to all the other books in this series and about to start again!! This one is pretty spooky and gripping. It's was good to find new characters introduced which are in subsequent books. Great narrator. Thoroughly recommend Also listen to the series in correct order.

Fantastic!

Can't rate this highly enough. The narrator really brings the full cast of characters to life. I thought the performance was amazing especially considering that you have some scenes with dialogue between multiple characters with different accents. The Awakening and Sacrifice are excellent too.

Captivated

From the start to the finish I found this story compelling and easy to follow. All the stories from this author are brilliantly written.
I didn't know where the story was going to lead and how it was going to end, I was on the edge of my seat throughout. I couldn't stop listening.
The plot was well thought out and the characters were voiced perfectly. At some points I had goosebumps.
A must read for anyone who dares!!!

Utterly gripping and atmospheric.

From the very first sentence “She’s been watching us for a while now” the hairs were up on the back of my neck and i had a good idea that this was going to be one audiobook i would whizz through and i was right.
Heptonclough a small rural village is now the home to the Fletcher’s, Gareth, Alice and their three children Tom, Joe and little Millie. Setting up home in their newly built house which lies next to the old abandoned church and graveyard, this should be a happy time for them but it’s soon clear that not all is as it seems.
New Vicar Harry comes upon the Fletcher boys when he first arrives at the church and a friendship soon developes between himself and the Fletcher family. Harry feels an unease in the church and after being introduced to some of the villagers its apparent that they are hiding things and Harry may not be that welcome.
Many of the characters in this book had me thinking. Did they know more than they were letting on? Who is responsible? There wasn’t many that were very trustworthy and i love how the mystery and the tension builds.
I instantly felt a creepiness wash over me as soon as i started listening to Blood Harvest and that didn’t leave me until i was finished. The narrator Clare Corbett has done a fantastic job of setting the scene and drawing the listener straight in to the story.
This is only the second book i have read by Sharon Bolton but it certainly wont be the last. Blood Harvest is a very atmospheric book and it was very easy to feel like i was in the story, watching from the sidelines.
Usually when i listen to audio books i have to be busy or my concentration goes but with Blood Harvest i found myself snuggled up in bed listening and totally engrossed. I set the timer umpteen times and every time found myself making it longer so i could listen to more.
If you like creepy, chilling and utterly  absorbing books then Blood Harvest is definitely for you. I’m so looking forward to reading or listening to more by this author. This is a definite recommend from It’s all about the books.

Outstanding.....

I have to confess I chose this book because it had Clare Corbett narrating it. And I hadn't read any of Sharon Bolton's books prior to it. But I was totally blown away by the overall quality of every aspect of this novel.

The plot was truly well crafted, and the characters so well put together. You almost felt you knew them. The storyline was perfectly developed and at times made the hair on the back of your neck stand up. It was a true thriller in every sense of the word. A book you just wanted to finish while you also didn't want it to end.

Clare Corbett's narration brings every character to life and I can't praise her enough.

By far, the best book of my membership to date.

Loved it!

Creepy as heck. Reminded me of classic horror movies set in creepy country settings where, for sure, there would be 'something nasty in the woodshed'. However, twists and turns abound and lead to a satisfying ending, but hungry for more. Great prequel to the Detective Lacey Flint series. The Narrator is great! Having lived in England most of my life, I'm impressed with her ability to narrate all the different accents and flip from one to the other with ease.

Great plot, not so well read

I really enjoyed this story, but the reader really got on my nerves. There are a few male characters in this story who play important parts, and the lovely, bright female voice makes them sound silly, especially since the reader really tries to make her voice sound dim. It would have been easier to ignore if she'd just used her normal voice. Better yet, the story should have been read by a male, as female characters generally suffer less by being read by a male than the other way around.

But reading aside, great story, Bolton at her best.
