Summary

Nothing can prepare you for the secrets of the Villagers.

Olive and Geoffrey are happier than ever. After moving to the countryside to bring up their three young children, they are welcomed with open arms by the friendly and helpful residents of the chocolate-box village.

But beyond the veil of rhododendrons and net curtains, there is something more. Just as Olive is settling in and starting to integrate with the community, she finds out that all is not as it first seemed.

As her discoveries become more and more sinister, Olive begins to fear for her own sanity...and has to make choices that will decide the fate of her family.

The Villagers paints an intriguing picture of a 1950s English country village where not everyone is who they first appear to be.

A bit of good old fashioned gossip.

Various tales from a village in the past that would have shocked in their time. Now they are just enjoyable stories passed down the generations. Worth a listen.

A Must for Those in Small Villages

I loved this ! Intriguing, interesting and an easy listen. Loved it ! A story of settling into a small village, and realising it's not as idyllic as you first thought - finding out secrets behind the neighbours. A lovely listen, lovely narration and would highly recommend.

Light & fun listen

This was a light & fun listen. I say fun it had my emotions working, some sad, some funny, some downright hilarious happenings.
No spoilers from me but look out for the little tomboy amusing & definitely relatable.
The fact these are all family tales and the family is adorable just won me over.
Narrator is very good, clear & timing was spot on.

Not My Village......LOL

The Villagers: Skeletons in the Cupboard Series, Book 1 Audiobook – Unabridged
A.J. Griffiths-Jones

This audio book is based on a family's story, of a village where they lived in the early 1950's. They moved to what they thought was the perfect little village to raise their family.......that is until, over the course of five years; they meet the people that live there. There are so many secrets, most of the inhabitants have at least one. Some are hilariously funny, some are sad, some are ohhhhhh gross, but the secrets slip out. I had to keep listening to find out how it would end, and I'm not going to tell. Listen to it yourself!!! I see this is book 1 in this series, I will look for more.




The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Tara-Louise Kaye brought this wild story to life.
