    Every other weekend, Stella buys a ticket on the next flight out of town and leaves her life behind. Home is a place with too many memories, and departure is the sweetest possible distraction.

    As soon as she arrives at her destination, Stella visits the airport bar. She orders a drink and waits for the right guy to come along. A bored businessman, a backpacker, a baggage handler just off shift. If he's into a hot, no-strings hookup, he's perfect. Each time is a thrilling escape from reality that gives the term layover a whole new meaning.

    GH says: "Characters fall well short of the mark"
    "Boring"

    Story

    Uninteresting story, unlikeable characters. Waste of time and money. Plus, the narrator's total over-enunciation of every sound and syllable was difficult, if not impossible, to adjust to.

    On the right side of the law. Sort of. Sebastian Rudd is not your typical street lawyer. He works out of a customized bulletproof van, complete with Wi-Fi, a bar, a small fridge, fine leather chairs, a hidden gun compartment, and a heavily armed driver. He has no firm, no partners, no associates, and only one employee: his driver, who's also his bodyguard, law clerk, confidant, and golf caddy.

    Story

    Huge John Grisham fan, hugely disappointed in this story. Characters are universally unlikeable, even the protagonist. Kept waiting for a twist or at least something mildly exciting to happen. I finished the book yesterday and am still waiting ...

    It's the summer of 2008. For the past decade, Nick and Bryony Skinner and their four children have ridden high on the economic boom, but their luck is about to run out. Suddenly, the privileged family finds itself at the center of a financial scandal: their Central London house is besieged by the press, Nick disappears, and Bryony and the children become virtual prisoners in their own home. And Ali, their trusted nanny, watches it all. As the babysitter, she brings a unique insider-outsider perspective to the family, seeing far more than even the family itself is capable of.

    Michael says: "Dramatic, irresistible narration of scandal"
    "Better than I was expecting!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I thought this was going to be a light, nanny-mummy beach read, but it really wasn't. The story was much more substantial. The characters were very well rounded and I enjoyed Alison Larkin's performance.
