The story was okay but ruined by the narrator. Overly dramatic in every sense
I so wanted to enjoy this book but it didn’t hit the mark for me. I persevered hoping I would start to engage with the main character Lucy but she irritated me and the narrator didn’t let up once from the overly agitated and irritating fraught energy associated with her. It was exhausting listening to her! The plot was certainly active with sudden twists and turns happening all throughout and some people may well enjoy it for that alone. I found it all slightly ridiculous, frustrating and irritating. The best thing in the entire story is Dusty - Lucy’s dog and the bond they have. I cared more about Dusty than anyone else!
Wow this book keeps you on your toes as to 'whodunnit'! Better for women than for males (as mostly about females). Although I don't usually select American narrators, this one (Jesse) really plays the part of a neurotic scared woman very well. A few scenes were a bit far fetched, but overall a good choice for those who want to be gripped from start to finish.
