But the biggest mystery of all may be what actually happened to James Rampling, the handsome son of a family enemy, whom Tandy fell in love and ran away with - though most of her memories of the affair are disturbingly absent....

    "WONDERFUL AUTHOR, AND SUPERB STORY LINE"

    I NOTICED THAT ALL THE OTHER REVIEWS WERE NEGATIVE FOR THIS BOOK. I HAVE COME TO BELIEVE AFTER LISTENING TO THE SECOND BOOK OF THE SERIES, THAT YOU MUST READ THE FIRST; WHICH I HAD DONE A DAY AGO. THE TWO BOOKS WORK SEAMLESSLY TOGETHER. IF YOU TAKE THE SECOND BOOK, OF AND BY ITSELF, YOU REALLY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE CHARACTERS HAVE SUFFERED UNDER THEIR PARENTS WHICH IS SPELLED OUT IN DETAIL IN A WONDERFUL MYSTERY. THIS COULD HAVE BEEN PUT INTO ONE BOOK, BUT IT WOULD BE AN OVERWHELMINGLY LARGE ONE. I THINK JAMES AND THE NARRATOR DID AN EXCELLENT JOB AND I REALLY LOVED THE STORY LINE AND FELL IN LOVE WITH THE PROTAGONIST. IT IS A CLEAN, FUNNY AT TIMES, WONDERFUL LIST OF CHARACTERS THAT MAKE UP THE ANGEL FAMILY. PLEASE DO READ "CONFESSIONS OF A MURDER SUSPECT" BEFORE YOU READ "CONFESSIONS: THE PRIVATE SCHOOL MURDERS". THIS REALLY IS A RED HERRING TITLE IN MY OPINION, FOR THEY REALLY ARE NOT IN SCHOOL THAT OFTEN, BUT SCHOOL DOES PLAY A SIGNIFICANT PART OF THE PROTAGONIST FLOWERING RETURN OF HER MEMORY ~~WHICH WAS STOLEN THAT PLAYS OUT OF THE WHYS AND WAYS IT ALL HAPPENED IN "CONFESSIONS OF A MURDER SUSPECT".

    JAMES, YOU DID A GREAT JOB IN HOLDING DOWN THE UNTOWARD LANGUAGE AND SEXUAL SITUATIONS, THAT SO HAMPER YOU SINCE YOU STARTED WRITING WITH OTHER AUTHORS. MAXINE, THANK THE LORD, DID A FINE JOB IN KEEPING IT CLEAN SO YOUR KIDS COULD LISTEN TO THIS STORY ON A TRIP AS A FAMILY. KEEP THE SERIES GOING WITH THE ANGEL CHILDREN AS THEY TRULY ARE A REMARKABLE FAMILY.

    "I more than agree.... it is a very boring book"
    Would you try another book from James Patterson and Maxine Paetro and/or Emma Galvin?

    Yes, their Murder Club books are great.


    Has Confessions: The Private School Murders turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emma Galvin?

    The narrator was not the problem with this book. It was the book itself.


    What character would you cut from Confessions: The Private School Murders?

    Don't think that any one character was the problem; it was how the entire book was put together.


    Any additional comments?

    I was stunned that this book was so bad when the Murder Club books have been so very good.

    The narrator was boring and the book was slow and at times confusing. Overall I wish I would have saved my money.

    boring


    Did Confessions: The Private School Murders inspire you to do anything?

    not purchase books with Emma Gavin reading

    Story
    "Great Book IF Your Read the First One."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I am recommending this book to friends but urge them to read the first book before this one. If not it won't have the same impact. After the first book I couldn't wait for this one and was not disappointed. I could see how it would not be as interesting to readers if they had not read the first one beforehand, Understanding the characters past is necessary to make this one a good reading.


    What does Emma Galvin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She nails her characters and gives them a voice/


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

    Yes
