"Vivid and gripping - a most accomplished first novel." (Barbara Trapido)
"Sun-drenched, dark and intriguing. I loved the way she painted Italy." (Kate Long)
Definitely different for me. Enjoyed it. Growing up in a different culture, I took issue with one of the character's sense of values. I'm sorry to say, she got what was coming to her. It was Lady Karma.
I kept listening as I wanted to know the outcome but it was quite predicable.
