Publisher's Summary

What's the best way to purge an unfaithful husband?

Become a spy for British Intelligence, of course.

Desperate to get out of London, and determined to help the war effort and stop thinking about her philandering husband, Fiona Figg volunteers to go undercover.

At Ravenswick Abbey a charming South African war correspondent has tongues wagging. His friends say he's a crack huntsman. The War Office is convinced he's a traitor. Fiona thinks he's a pompous prig.

What sort of name is Fredrick Fredricks anyway?

Too bad Fiona doesn't own a Wolseley pith helmet.

At Ravenswick a murderer is on the prowl, and it's not just the big-game hunter who's ready to pounce.

Couldn’t get past the fake accent.

Seems like the story is great, but I couldn’t get past the narrator’s fake accent. She morphed from British to Old Hollywood to even a little Scottish turn now and then. I’ll be checking out the physical book to see how I like it, but I couldn’t finish the audiobook.

Good enough mystery, horrible reader

The story and characters are quite good but the read is the worst I think I have dver heard. I thought initially she might be trying to emulate low class English people who don’t know common French expressions. But she even mispronounced “wan.” It quickly was “fingernails on the chalkboard” painful to finish.

Plagiarism

It only took ma a couple of chapters, once Fiona got to Ravenswick, to realize the entire murder story is the same as the Murder at Styles by Agatha Christie. Of course the characters and names are different, she added a few twists, but the murder story is exactly the same as the one Agatha Christie wrote back in 1920. I probably would not have realized it, but I recently started rereading Agatha Christie and had just finished it, maybe 2 books back. Hercule Poirot was the famous detective who solved it back then.
If I knew how to bring this to the attention of Dame Agatha’s heirs, I would!
And Kelly Oliver had the nerve to mention Agatha Christie in the book. Shameful!

Disappointed

My first real flop of a recommended book.
Couldn’t make it past 3rd chapter.
I don’t know what is appealing.
Narrator is awful.

Pleasantly surprised

I was prepared not to like the narration after reading some reviews but I found only one problem with it. Sometimes I just couldn’t understand it. The story was intriguing, even though I usually don’t enjoy books that feature a woman dressed as a man. I will listen again at some point which I consider the mark of an enjoyable audio book.

This narrator is annoying.

The narrator has an awful tone to her voice. It’s annoying.
I would never read anything narrated by Trista Shay again.
Mispronunciations abound in her narrative as well.
I listen to a lot of Audiobooks.
I’ve never heard a narrator as bad as this!

Oh my goodness

It’s a twisted version of Agatha Christie s mysterious affair at styles .. the first Poriot story first published around the Great War .. the characters and plot are the same, the only difference is the insulting version of the dandy detective and his best friend.. it is and outrage

An exciting book

In the beginning I wasn’t too sure, but soon got caught up in the excitement.
