Cute stories & FABULOUS narration!

I'm an anglophile and a mystery lover, and this delivered on both fronts. Even though I could see where many of the stories were going, the narrator kept me happily listening for the duration. I was so impressed with her command of many different characters and voices and accents, and I'm looking forward to other books narrated by her.

Not a fan of SS ....until now.

To be honest I was not really a fan of short stories as I like to get involved with characters and a long plot. However I have loved everything by Eileen Thornton so far, so was happy to listen to these stories. And SO glad I did!! Absolutely delightful stories, great twists at the end that make you laugh and great narration by Nicola who is really good at accents! Thank you once again Eileen!
