Revenge of the Tide | [Elizabeth Haynes]

Revenge of the Tide

Genevieve has finally escaped the stressful demands of her sales job and achieved her dream: to leave London behind and start a new life aboard a houseboat in Kent. But on the night of her boat-warming party the dream is shattered when a body washes up beside the boat, and she recognises the victim. As the sanctuary of the boatyard is threatened, and her life is increasingly at risk, the story of how Genevieve came to be so out of her depth unfolds, and she learns the real cost of mixing business with pleasure.

    "Perfect holiday listen"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Easy listening. I also enjoyed the story unfolding chapter by chapter and that there were not too many characters to keep track of. For me this audio book made for great holiday listening - no brainer stuff.
    Karen Cass has become my favourite narrator. She differentiates the characters really well with changes in tone and accent, which makes listening very smooth.


    Which character – as performed by Karen Cass – was your favorite?

    The main character, Genevieve, is my favourite. I think she also did really well with Dylan - to convey his frostiness.

    "Unexpected"

    I was disappointed with this for one reason; the synopsis suggested a compelling murder mystery but what I actually got was a variation on the classic "chick-lit".

    If you like chick-lit, you'll love this book. It has all the ingredients of this genre, and once I realised what I'd got and decided to listen to it for what it was, I did quite enjoy it. The narrator is perfect for this kind of book, but wouldn't sit right with a darker murder mystery.

    I have rated it with only three stars because it is not what the synopsis suggests, but as a novel of its type it is an entertaining listen.

    "Pole Dancing, Barge Boats and Gangsters"

    After reading Elizabeth Haynes debut novel 'Into the Darkest Corner' I was looking forward to trying her other books - I had an audible credit so I purchased 'Revenge of the Tide' on audio.

    Firstly the narration is very good, Karen Cass does an excellent job.

    Secondly I have to disagree with other reviewers this wasn't chick lit, it just wasn't a detective thriller. Okay so it is nowhere near as pacey or heart pounding as Haynes first novel but it's still good. It took me a few chapters to get into it but then I was hooked and intrigued.

    If you are looking for a typical Cop thriller novel then this might not be for you, but I think fans of Claire Seeber would like this.

    To sum up, not as great as the debut novel, but still a really good and refreshing thriller style story.

    I'll definitely purchase Elizabeth Haynes next novel 'Human Remains'

    "A huge disappointment"

    I gave Elizabeth Haynes debut 'Into the darkest corner' 5 stars (worthy of 6 if that were possible !) so had high hopes for this her second. However, this was hugely disappointing. Unbelievable, slow, repetitive and hard to believe it was by the same author. I lost interest around half way through but kept going as I so wanted it to get better. 3 stars as I hope there is better to come from the author

    "Pole dancing, murder and boat life"
    Would you listen to Revenge of the Tide again? Why?

    The story in itself, I enjoyed. A couple of things I didn't see coming and I found the characters easy to identify with and differentiate between. I liked how the book flowed (no pun intended) if I had to pick on something it could be that I'd hoped the ending would have been a bit more dramatic, nevertheless I'd still listen again, jolly good book


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Revenge of the Tide?

    Loved Malc, I wish he were my friend too


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

    I actually like Karen Cass thou I've read she comes under fire in many a review (unfairly in my opinion that she was criticised for using a Lancastrian accent in another book even though the character came from that area???). She does different voices so the characters are identifiable and is well spoken enough to hold my attention and add to the book


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

    I'm a dip in and out kinda guy so several sittings on this one


    Any additional comments?

    Love Elizabeth Haynes, Definitely check out into the darkest corner and human remains if you haven't already done so.

    Any additional comments?

    Elizabeth Haynes first book 'Into the Darkest Corner' was absolutely brilliant and this whilst a good listen isn't half as good as that.
