    "A throughly good listen"
    Would you listen to A Lesson in Secrets again? Why?

    I really enjoyed this book, and will enjoy listening to it again and again over future months and years. The plot is excellent, without too much in the way of distractions. No obscene words, just the 'b' word a couple of times. Both times it was in context, quite funny in fact.


    What other book might you compare A Lesson in Secrets to, and why?

    There isn't another book I could compare it with, it is unique in its own field.


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

    No, but I am looking forward to doing so having downloaded two more audio books.


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

    Yes, but unfortunately one does have to go to bed!


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I had discovered this author sooner.

    "I loved this book"

    Beautifully read, a good old fashioned crime story with personal lives thrown in.

    Not thrilling or cripping, but a relaxing crime novel to listen to.

    I really recommend this book.

    "A good read"

    The stories about Maisie Dobb's give an insight into the long term effects of WW1 but not just on those on the front line. It shows the effects on the survivors. Add to that a whodunit, interesting characters then what more can you ask. I have found the whole series very interesting.
