Ok story - heard better

I must admit, I didn’t love the story but I didn’t dislike it either.
The spoilt sounding kids annoyed me quite a lot but I continued listening just to find out what happened, I couldn’t guess the twist so it was a quite good listen.

DONT BOTHER

Predictable, slow, disappointing. The story line insinuates a big twist and tries to keep you intrigued. It’s incredibly unrealistic and ridiculous frankly. The performance is difficult to hear sometimes as the reader whispers and then will shout: VERY ANNOYING. Complete waste of time.

Engaging, but...

This was an engaging story, performed well by the reader (although her North American accent has an obvious 'tell' I found distracting). I did find the ending a bit rushed and too pat and implausible. Still worth the listen, but not quite up to the race reviews, in my opinion.

Amazing story!

So well written, kept me up at night as I listened to it. Great narration with different tones of voice overs. Suprising twists as the story unfolds, a really enjoyable book. Im writing this review at 2am as couldn't wait to finish it -it speaks for itself! Would be buying more Linda Green's books

Captivating!

This book wasn't what I expected but I was enjoyed it. Very emotional listen and the narrator's did a great job. I would say it's more a dark family drama with a very tough to listen to subject but the author tackled it very well!

Brilliant book

Fantastic storyline from the very first page. And the narration was superb. Such a good listen from beginning to end.
