At book one of the series I am hooked! I love the food, the cats, the sights of Melbourne and all the crazy characters.I am looking forward to listening to all the series.
I'm not sure why other reviewers say this book isn't as good as the others in the series - it was equally as entertaining and delightful. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and had no idea "whodunnit" before the inevitable reveal (although I don't try and guess, it didn't seem any more obvious once I knew than any of the other books). If you've enjoyed all the other Phryne adventures, go forth and anticipate the same escapism you've come to expect from Kerry Greenwood.
I loved the Freegans! Such a good concept for the book.
I loved this book as much as the previous in the series. The characters continue to develop (including the cats!) and I love that Corinna hates Christmas....or does she?
Having listened to all the Jane Jameson novels and the other two Half Moon Hollow books it was lovely to visit that world again and see how my favourites were going.
I loved that Dick has another relative!
More of the story I really enjoy.
Could have absolutely listened all in one go and nearly did.
If you've loved what's come before in the series then this is more of the same...in a good way.
Imaging the main character as Bradley Cooper was a delight through the whole story.
The ending. It all comes together and the journey you've taken with the characters makes what seemed to be a slow story all make sense.
I didn't love this book until the end. I hated it in the beginning. Somewhere in the middle I started to connect to the story and I'm glad I stuck with it. It was a great book to drive with - not so much a good one for the gym. This story will stay with me long after books I enjoyed so much more have been forgotten.
If they had read/listened to the first book I wouldn't need to - it's more of the same fantastic story.
Love Agent Franks in this book. I know we are meant to hate him but the more we find out about him the more we understand.
If you enjoyed the first book, then you'll love the second. Further character development, more background to the story and more information on the characters past and the secrets they didn't share in the first book.
Compelling entertaining action
How can you not love Earl the best. Can't wait to read Book 3 which is all about him.
Mr Wyman's performance really brought the story alive and you could truly keep track of all the characters...even the females.
Girls...don't be put off by the guns and the gore.
As a typically "girly" book listener/reader I was hesitant to listen but thoroughly enjoyed this book and encourage anyone who doesn't mind the odd action film to give action novels a go.
We see a lot of Phyrne's past in this book which is lovely for the character development.
I really enjoyed the little extra complexity in this story. Definitely a stand out in the series.
Loved the scene in the well with the Professor. But don't want to give too much away. Phryne has such a way of making the best of a situation.
One of my favourite books in the series. I thoroughly enjoyed Phryne's adventures in Sydney at the University and the characters that were introduced to us.
