    "A Labyrinth of Intrige"
    Would you listen to A Place of Secrets again? Why?

    I certainly would. It was not only a great story but also it's awoken an interest in stargazing!


    What other book might you compare A Place of Secrets to, and why?

    I have never read a book similar to compare.


    What about Jilly Bond’s performance did you like?

    She was excellent. She made the characters come to life.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    This book and all the other Rachel Hore books I have read are all written to a very high standard with great stories.

    Story
    "gripping and exciting"
    If you could sum up A Place of Secrets in three words, what would they be?

    captivating and exciting mystery


    What other book might you compare A Place of Secrets to, and why?

    Tess Gerristen - the bone garden. The twists and turns unfolding in similar ways without being too obvious and each new secret told, leads to more questions.


    Have you listened to any of Jilly Bond’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Not yet but intend to


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    all of it


    Any additional comments?

    Jilly Bond brought the cleverness of the book to life, she made each individual character believeable and distinctive, you could hear the expressions on her face as she narrated.

    "Great read!"

    First time I read this author and really enjoyed the story. It was quite intriging, well written and well narrated. I found it difficult to put down and will certainly look for other books by Rachel Hore. Can highly recommend!

    "Dull dull dull"

    This novel has all the right ingredients but somehow they end up producing a naff, overblown, chick-lit mystery which is so full of coincidences even Dickens would have baulked at the amount.
