A perfectly narrated sweet comedy

Due to a series of bad decisions and mistrust of police, Amy and her best friend Kerry find themselves on the run.

Amy is a brilliant twenty-five-year-old woman who is so scared of failure that she never quit her student job at a motorway service station. She’s also very naive and trusting in a rather adorable way. When the customer she has a huge crush on, Cara, disappears, she tries to get the police involved, in vain. She decides to investigate on her own and finds out the woman left a flash drive stuck under one of the tables every morning and a man would come later in the day and retrieve it. Until a few days ago when Cara left the memory stick under another table, which the man didn’t find. Amy gets the flash drives, opens it and bam! The scary man and the MI5 are suddenly looking for her and Kerry, who helped her get away.

A former MI5 operative, Claudia McAllister is now a freelancer. Yet she’s the best huntress, so her former boss hires her to find the two fugitives, who are considered dangerous terrorists.

This story reminded me of the Australian TV series Wanted in some ways. It’s a comedy of sorts, with a hint of romance, and it was quite enjoyable. I liked Rebecca McKernan’s accents a whole lot, that’s probably what I liked best. That, and the friendship between the MCs.

Brilliant

This is an absolutely brilliant book. A great story of a dizzy coffee shop girl getting caught up in a terrorist plot, being chased by the authorities and in particular a woman called The Huntress. Its highly amusing in content and very descriptive, highly recommend it.

Excellent Audio!

I loved The Huntress. It's a great story. Imagine you and your best friend running around in circles trying to evade capture. Enter strong, smart, pretty woman. Who's side is she on? Excellently narrated by Rebecca McKernan.

Sweet story of two best friends

Sweet story of Amy and her best friend, Kerry. They get caught up in a crime they didn’t commit and get by, being kind and friendly to the people they meet while they’re on the run. Amy and Kerry amusingly blunder their way through evading capture, while skilled security officers struggle to figure out what the girls are doing. Overall amusing and easy, relaxing read with good narration.

Excellent book!

This is one of my favorite books ! Maybe my absolute favorite. It has tons of humor, intrigue, whimsy, and a very little bit of romance near the end . Only a little, but hugely promising !

Narration sounds a bit awkward when there is a lot of dialogue, but voices are done exceptionally well.

Heartwarming and fun!

This book is about Amy, who lives a not so challenging life until something mysterious happens in the motorway service station she is working. A regular customer (the mysterious woman of her dreams) had not shown up and Amy calls the police to report her missing. The police don't take her serious and so she starts her owd detective work. She discovers the mystery woman of her dreams is way more mysterious than she first gave her credit for. Things blow up just when she wants to go on a camping trip with her friend Kerry. They end up as fugitives to prove their innocence.

Listening to this book was a blast! I did not know what to expect of it and ended up laughing out loud several times (and getting funny faces from passersby). Amy is a likeable character and also very quip and witty in her interaction with others. Especially with Claudia, the ex-MI 5 agent who is hunting her. I enjoyed listening to the journey of Amy and Kerry to avoid being caught. They are amateurs who by accident do the right things and come across as mastermind criminals, just hilarious! The side characters they meet are contributing to the feel-good of this book.

I would describe this book as an action-comedy. Not the kind of action with explosions and gunfire, but more the "keeps it interesting" kind of action. When you are in for a fun read where the focus is not on the romance of the story, you should give this book a go.

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Rebecca McKernan. Although I normally tend to favour the lower pitch voices, McKernan did a great job narrating (also the funny parts), making listening to this book a joy.

Fun

Crazy, fun accidental spy story. I was a bit disappointed when I read it at first as I was probably expecting a romance and it's clearly not that. But I was having a lot of fun now while listening to this audiobook.
