Until It's Over

Astrid Bell has known most of her roommates for years, but while they have a history together - romantic pairings, one-night stands, friendships - each of them also has a past. Astrid is on her way home one day when her neighbor knocks her off her bike. Seeing she is bruised but not broken, her roommates help her home. The next day, they learn that same neighbor was beaten to death hours later. Each of them tells the police what they know and are dismissed - until Astrid stumbles over another body.

Publisher's Summary

Astrid Bell has known most of her roommates for years, but while they have a history together - romantic pairings, one-night stands, friendships - each of them also has a past. Astrid is on her way home one day when her neighbor knocks her off her bike. Seeing she is bruised but not broken, her roommates help her home.

The next day, they learn that same neighbor was beaten to death hours later. Each of them tells the police what they know and are dismissed - until Astrid stumbles over another body. Two bodies in less than a week is more than just bad luck. As the line between attraction and danger blurs, the roommates must guard against becoming the killer's next victim.

    Story
    "My First Nicci French Novel recommended Goodreads"
    What made the experience of listening to Until It's Over the most enjoyable?

    Not the run of the meal story, similar to some Ruth Rendells and Cornelia Read books in that the true mystery is found through the characters' development. Makes you invest in the story by believing these characters could exist.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The relationship between Astrid and Owen. I enjoy youth believing they can fly but have forgotten they need to build their own rocket ships.


    Which character – as performed by Anne Flosnik – was your favorite?

    Astrid


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

    I did.


    Any additional comments?

    A bit of a funky story and the conclusion gets a little mixed up by not adding enough hints to lead you to murderer but that also made it exciting for me as I love books that trip me up-at least until near the end. Not many do so when I find one, I truly enjoy being cognizant of all the characters motives.

    Story
    "A bit wordy"

    While this book was overall a decent listen, the wordiness and the tangents made me a bit bored at times and hoping to get to the point.
    At times too, I did not like the narrator's voice because it was not convincing and sounded a bit too harsh.
    However, I still enjoyed parts of the book, and was surprised by the ending.
