Don't waste your time or money on this

A drippy, soppy story, terribly narrated. I really don't know why I bothered to finish this. The female narrator with a plumb in her mouth does a very bad job of all the male characters. The story is so weak. If this is the first of a series, it will be the last of the series for me.

Awful nonsense

I nearly returned this book after about 5 minutes but thought, to be fair, that I should give it a bit longer. I was doing other things while listening so I ended up hearing it all. Agatha Christie-esque plot with red herrings at one moment and the blindingly obvious the next. The heroine is supposed to have been a spy but she’s not the brightest and has to keep being helped out by men. Her relationship with her narcissistic and obsessed dead husband would have friends calling for an injunction. But hey, it’s just a book.
