She thought they had a perfect marriage.... When a plane crashes, Iris Griffiths watches the news unfold with horror...and then relief. Her beloved husband, Will, had just flown out from the same airport, but he was on a different flight. So why is his name on the list of victims? Surely there's some mistake - her husband would never lie to her. Would he? But wading deeper into the truth of her husband's deception, Iris begins to think the unthinkable. Maybe she's glad that he's dead....

It's been few days since I finished this beauty and still can't get over it. The narrator was brilliant, characters relatable; twist and turns in every chapter and you are sucked in from the beginning. IT was super quick and really enjoyable read! definitely recommended... keeps you guessing.

Ove is almost certainly the grumpiest man you will ever meet. He isn't as young as he used to be. He drives a Saab. He points at people he doesn't like the look of. He is described by those around his as 'the neighbour from hell'.Every morning he makes his inspection rounds of the local streets. He moves bicycles and checks the contents of recycling bins, even though it's been years since he was fired as Chairman of the Residents' Association in a vicious 'coup d'état'.

If I could, I would give it more than 5 stars in all categories. It's about and old quirky man unwillingly being involved into friendships that ultimately change everything. It's also about his past and how the story of Ove come to be. One moment I was laughing my head off and on the next page the story-line broke my heart and at the end I was bawling. This is one of those books that stay with you long after you've closed it... I wish I knew Ove in real life.

I've read the previous instalments of this series and I've loved them all! After way too many psychological thrillers these were enjoyable mysteries.
In each episode, you'll learn a little more about Sarah and Jack (the main characters). Character development is steady and delightful.
Neil Dudgeon - the best narrator I've come across here on Audible!

In 2003, 16-year-old Rebecca Winter disappeared. She'd been enjoying her teenage summer break: working at a fast food restaurant, crushing on an older boy and shoplifting with her best friend. Mysteriously ominous things began to happen - blood in the bed, periods of blackouts, a feeling of being watched - though Bec remained oblivious of what was to come. Eleven years later she is replaced. A young woman, desperate after being arrested, claims to be the decade-missing Bec. Soon the imposter is living Bec's life.

This book left me feeling disappointment from the start. There was some good ideas to make this a really good read unfortunately it never came through.
Didn't really do it for me.

For every woman who has ever fantasized about driving past her exit on the highway instead of going home to make dinner, for every woman who has ever dreamed of boarding a train to a place where no one needs constant attention - meet Maribeth Klein, a harried working mother who's so busy taking care of her husband and twins, she doesn't even realize she's had a heart attack. Afterward, surprised to discover that her recuperation seems to be an imposition on those who rely on her, Maribeth does the unthinkable: She packs a bag and leaves.

This book draws you in quickly with it's twists and turns but you'll like it... I promise. The subject is fascinating and I really did want to see what is the outcome.
I did question some of her moves but I don't know what I would do in that situation (not a mother myself). It was a touching book and really fast read.

Milk and Honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. About the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. The audiobook is divided into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose. Deals with a different pain. Heals a different heartache. Milk and Honey takes listeners through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.

I picked up this book because of all the hype and I was intrigued of the plot and twists. Was expecting a bit more action and maybe less characters but just because of the narration I kept on listening. The book itself an enjoyable cozy mystery.
