    "Unsurprising, Yet Still Exciting"

    I liked it better than Book 1 (The Kommandant's Girl), but I still could not help picking it apart.

    I can’t say it was completely predictable, but I wasn’t surprised by any of the multitude of plot twists. Sure they were exciting, but I didn’t consider any of them gripping; to me the whole book felt like a string of contrived scenarios rather than edge-of-your-seat suspenseful drama.

    Nevertheless the story was fast-paced and interesting; I’d recommend it as a fun distraction.

    "worth a listen - BUT there's better out there"

    been loaned this audio book by a friend. story content is fine.a very typical love story with a reasonable twist. a bit light weight maybe & lacking historical substance. i usually enjoy a ww2 novel. very much a 'woman's novel'. not keen on the narrator's american accent. that's said without offence - i personally prefer british accents to listen to (even with local dialects!) it's worth a listen - but having said that there's better out there.
