Summary

Hannah Riley and her musician husband, Will, hope that a move to the Suffolk countryside will promise a fresh start. Hannah, a human rights worker, is desperate for a child and she hopes that this new life will realise her dream. Yet when the snow comes, Will is working in London and Hannah is cut off in their remote village.

Life in Tornley turns out to be far from idyllic: Who are the threatening figures who lurk near their property at night? And why is her neighbour so keen to see them leave? Plus Will's behaviour is severely testing the bonds of trust.

Hannah has spent her professional life doing the right thing for other people. But as she starts to unbury a terrible crime, she realises she can no longer do that without putting everything she's ever wanted at risk. But if she does nothing, the next victim could be her....

Builds the atmosphere and tension well

A big fan of Louise Millars books and this is just as good as the earlier books. A good holiday read with the just the right level of suspense to keep you hooked

Unsympathetic characters

There wasn’t a single sympathetic character in the whole book - and you really couldn’t care what happened to them. Implausible plot was drawn out and seemed then rushed at the end. The one saving grace was the performance.

Ridiculous but compelling

I think that both Louise Millar and Clare Corbett should be congratulated as somehow from a ridiculous storyline full of plot holes, unbelievable happenings and stereotyped characters they have created an utterly compelling audiobook that I could not stop listening to ! This is definitely the weakest of Louise Millar's three novels but I still had to listen compulsively to find out what happened at the end. As ever, Clare Corbett narrates beautifully and it is probably her narration that stopped me abandoning it half way through.

Kept me listening.

A good story and narrated well.
I would have liked another chapter to tie up the loose ends but otherwise really enjoyed it.

The Hidden Girl

Predictable, irritating and average. I found the story unbelievable, the main characters were one dimensional and if I'd heard about the painting and decorating once more... I did slog on to the predictable twist at the end as I try to finish every book I listen to/read.

The most enjoyable chapters were the ones which contained the descriptive narrative of the snow which teamed down so much so that the husband couldn't get home for days but they could cut the grass! So 2 stars for that as it gave me a laugh!

The narrator did a good job with the material given but thankfully it was a BOGOF.

confusing at times

It started out great but after a while the whole story just became a bit pointless. As it was only one narrator, sometimes the different voices she did got muddled and some of the accents were questionable.

Great book - could not stop listening.

So glad I wasn’t out off by the one or two negative reviews. I found the characters well drawn and believable. Can’t wait to discover more books by this author.
