    "A bloomin' good read - just not bloomin' well read"

    I love convoluted murder mysteries set in traditional English villages, so this was right up my street - a sort of Midsummer Murders about 200 miles further north.

    Nicely paced, well drawn characters and a slow-burn romance which is easy to spot from the beginning but enjoyable nonetheless.

    But - and it's a big but, I'm afraid - the reader drove me mad! I found myself repeating lines after her, putting the emphasis where it should be, rather than where she chose to place it. And everything's delivered just a little more slowly than is comfortable to listen to; made me feel as if I were back in school, taking dictation once more. After I'd shouted at my iPod for the umpteenth time I decided to check other reviewers (this lady has narrated another book available on Audible) and found that I'm not alone in finding her hard to take.

    It's a shame, because this is an enjoyable book, and I would definitely by another buy this author. But not if read by this reader. I've rejected books in the past if the voice on the sample isn't pleasing, but this one slipped through my quality control!
