Publisher's Summary

You see the people you work with every day, but what can't you see? Amira, Sarah, Paula, Ewan and Charlie have worked together for years - they know how each other likes their coffee, whose love life is a mess, whose children keep them up at night. But their comfortable routine life is suddenly shattered when an aggressive new boss walks in....

Now there's something chilling in the air. Who secretly hates everyone? Who is tortured by their past? Who is capable of murder?

    Story
    "when she was bad!!!!!"

    what an amazing story! I was hooked from the first chapter, so much so that I had to finish it in one sitting. The characters were totally believable, the plot unfurled like an onion - layer upon layer giving you insights into each character. The narrator's voice was brilliantly mesmerising too. I'm looking forward to the next book from this author.

    "Not for me - sorry. I'm requesting a refund"

    Just not for me. It felt like it droned on in.a predictable manner. Disappointing for me.

    Story
    "An anti climax"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I struggled to get into this audio book. This certainly wasn't because of the narrator as she was excellent. The constant jumping between past and present was difficult to keep up with and became a little annoying. When the final big reveal happened at the end, it was a wee bit of an anti-climax.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The 'past' story was intriguing and featured the traumatic tale of child abuse as seen through the eyes of a child psychologist. This part was interesting and quite gripping. The 'present' story was in comparison quite drawn out and a little tiresome as the characters featured were a little stereotypical and predictable.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The account of the 'past' child psychologist as it was interesting and gripping.

    Story
    "Confusing"
    What did you like best about When She Was Bad? What did you like least?

    I didn't dislike this book. It kept my interest with its 'who is it' theme but there were moments when I found the narrative extremely dull. It was a good story and a clever idea but far too long. It will transfer well to the screen ( probably as a TV series) and overall as I say it was not too bad.

    "Stick with it! "

    Well worth a read. Found some characters a bit dull, but the narration was excellent! Great story, and I didn’t guess the ending!
