Probably not from this author, but Simon Vance is as good as always.
His accent is appealing and he always does a good job as narrator.
The story starts with Lucy disappearing, and then... nothing happens. Its more than halfway through the book before anything related to her disappearance starts to happen. I was not interested in the detailed back story of Lucy, her family, her boyfriend, her BFF and other people in the story. I also would have preferred if the story were chronological, instead of being told in chunks that go back and forth in time.
I couldn't past the first 15 minutes of the book, and I tried twice. It was too difficult to keep track of what was going on with the excessive descriptions of the most mundane things. I might try it in print form, but listening while driving was too confusing.
Not really. I was expecting something more like Devil Wears Prada with the tension and colorful characters and Emily's snippiness. There is almost none of that here; the entire book is focused on Andi and her marriage and baby, with the constant threat of the magazine being sold. Miranda is hardly in the story, and I got tired of Andi's constant whining.
