    When you're as big and rough as Jack Reacher - and you have a badly-set, freshly-busted nose patched with silver duct tape - it isn't easy to hitch a ride. But Reacher has some unfinished business in Virginia, so he doesn't quit. And at last, he's picked up by three strangers - two men and a woman. But within minutes it becomes clear they're all lying about everything - and then they run into a police roadblock on the highway. There has been an incident, and the cops are looking for the bad guys....

    The Wideacre estate is bankrupt. The villagers are living in poverty and Wideacre Hall is a smoke-blackened ruin. But in the Dower House two children are being raised in protected innocence. Equal claimants to the inheritance of the Wideacre, rivals for the love of the village. Only one can be the favoured child and inherit the magical understanding between the land and the Lacey family. Only one can be Beatrice Lacey' true heir.

    Would you try another book from Philippa Gregory and/or Liz Hollis?

    NO!!!! I have read a few of her books with but Philipa Gregory should stick to historical novels where she is bound by historical facts as this was everything evil, incestuous, weak willed women, and murderous . . A real waste of time to plod through and have pointless ending


    Would you ever listen to anything by Philippa Gregory again?

    definitely NOT


    What about Liz Hollis’s performance did you like?

    portrayed characters well. created mood


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    TOTAL disappointment and waste of time


    Any additional comments?

    stupid waste of time
