"The new queen of the gripping, light-hearted page-turner." (Easy Living)
Its an weird thing but my favourite genre to read is murder/mystery books but when it comes to audio books, I love ChicLit! Odd I know!
Really good story. Kept me interested from the beginning. Clear and really interesting characters. Wee bit more serious than expected but that was the key to keeping me interested. Highly recommended
I am a total audiobook addict! I travel quite a bit for work and listen to them while I drive. Always searching for a good author to follow
This is my first Lucy Diamond book. I really enjoyed it at the beginning but then towards the end it was very predictable. On the most part I enjoyed it and I will give Lucy Diamond books another try.
"Enjoyable audio book"
I liked the authors ability to set the scene. I could imagine every place the author situated the characters .
Izzy was well written as the protective mother with a hidden past.
Jolly Bonds narration was good on the whole . Though I did get confused at times when there was open dialogue between two characters without a "said Izzy" at the end as sometimes the characters voices were just too similar to know who was speaking. Male voices were achallenge too all sounded the same.
Trouble at seaside
Emma's character ? Why was she there ?
A beautifully written and narrated story. Lucy is my new favourite author and never disappoints with true to life characters, feelings and events. I loved this book.
"Another good listen from Lucy Diamond"
I've listened to/read several Lucy Diamond books and this ranks as one of my favourites.
The characters were well developed, the plot was fast moving and interesting and the narration by Jilly Bond was excellent as always.
Worth a listen.
"Good story - very well narrated"
This is an excellent narration. The story moves along well - a little predictable but overall it makes you want to keep reading/listening and also to want a further instalment when you get to the end!
"This had the potential to be so much better..."
I usually really like Lucy Diamonds writing however this title didn’t fully hit the spot for me as the ‘nicer’ parts are somewhat overshadowed but the darker side of the story…
Additionally I think the bio should have included an indicator that the story line contains scenes of domestic violence - although I fully support the fact that side of life has to be told, there is a time & place for it which I do not believe to be in a work of fiction an unsuspecting listener buys on the premise that it will be an entertaining relaxing listen. Not what I was expecting at all from this author.
"Very good indeed. Insightful"
One of Lucy D s best I think. Lots of insights into issues faced commonly in families. Delivered with a sense of humour & interesting " spins". Subject matter (s) make me wonder if LD was a psychotherapist in another life. I was surprised at the depth of the stories in this book, as I usually find this author 's approach more frivolous. Theme is of Several stories of the lives of several women, (all partnered to a family of Jones men) ,running side by side.
