    Story
    "Classic chit lit"

    If you want a story that is full of twists and turns and you can suspend you disbelief that so much can happen in one weekend then this is the story for you. It is so easy to relate to all the characters and the story behind every one is so believable. If you are looking for a relaxing read / listen you can't go wrong with this

    Story
    "Very believable story brilliantly narrated."
    Any additional comments?

    All of the couples in the book have very interesting stories to tell. So many contrasting lives. I like a realistic book and felt a real connection to all the characters. The narration made the book come alive. A wonderfully descriptive author who made me want to stay in the area and at the hotel

    "Simple, captivating story, loved it!"

    I really enjoyed this book, the story was captivating and enjoyable to the end.
    Well written by Veronica Henry, and Anna Bentinck's narrating was exquisite.
    I have just purchased "A night on the Orient Express" same author and narrator. I have high hopes.

    Story
    "A little predicatable, but worth the listen."
    If you could sum up The Long Weekend in three words, what would they be?

    A lovely story about 5 different sets of people all converging in a little hotel over a bank holiday weekend. All stories were belivable and were intriging in their own right.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Loved the character of the cheating husband and his mistress and child.


    What does Anna Bentinck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The narrator was good - I would happily listen to other books that she has narrated


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

    Yes! I listened to it over the course of 2 days and was enjoying it so much that I didnt want to stop.


    Any additional comments?

    A great little book, a little predicatable, but hey - it was worth the listen. It's not usually my genre either, but I have to say I would happily listen to books by this author again.
    Great little read - because it made me smile :-)

    Story
    "Thoroughly enjoyable read"
    Where does The Long Weekend rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the Chick Lit stakes this is one of the good ones.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Long Weekend?

    I enjoyed the way that the author kept the story moving the whole time and how, right to the end, you were left wondering how it would end.


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

    I haven't but I think she enacts each character superbly.


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

    When Isabel decides she is not going to tell her family that she is dying of cancer so that they can enjoy one last Christmas and New Year together without the cloud of knowing hanging over them.


    Any additional comments?

    Thoroughly enjoyable characters and it was nice to get "into" the story from the beginning. A recommended read for anyone who enjoys a good story.
