Excellent-though a bit more serious than expected

Really good story. Kept me interested from the beginning. Clear and really interesting characters. Wee bit more serious than expected but that was the key to keeping me interested. Highly recommended

Lovely story to listen to!

It took me a while to get into the book, but once I was in, I couldn't stop listening to it!

Me and Mr Jones

Any additional comments?

This is my first Lucy Diamond book. I really enjoyed it at the beginning but then towards the end it was very predictable. On the most part I enjoyed it and I will give Lucy Diamond books another try.

Enjoyable audio book

What did you like most about Me and Mr Jones?

I liked the authors ability to set the scene. I could imagine every place the author situated the characters .

Who was your favorite character and why?

Izzy was well written as the protective mother with a hidden past.<br/>

Did Jilly Bond do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

Jolly Bonds narration was good on the whole . Though I did get confused at times when there was open dialogue between two characters without a "said Izzy" at the end as sometimes the characters voices were just too similar to know who was speaking. Male voices were achallenge too all sounded the same.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Trouble at seaside

Any additional comments?

Emma's character ? Why was she there ?

Lucy Diamond

A beautifully written and narrated story. Lucy is my new favourite author and never disappoints with true to life characters, feelings and events. I loved this book.

Another good listen from Lucy Diamond

I've listened to/read several Lucy Diamond books and this ranks as one of my favourites.
The characters were well developed, the plot was fast moving and interesting and the narration by Jilly Bond was excellent as always.
Worth a listen.

Good story - very well narrated

This is an excellent narration. The story moves along well - a little predictable but overall it makes you want to keep reading/listening and also to want a further instalment when you get to the end!

This had the potential to be so much better...

I usually really like Lucy Diamonds writing however this title didn’t fully hit the spot for me as the ‘nicer’ parts are somewhat overshadowed but the darker side of the story…
Additionally I think the bio should have included an indicator that the story line contains scenes of domestic violence - although I fully support the fact that side of life has to be told, there is a time & place for it which I do not believe to be in a work of fiction an unsuspecting listener buys on the premise that it will be an entertaining relaxing listen. Not what I was expecting at all from this author.

Very good indeed. Insightful

One of Lucy D s best I think. Lots of insights into issues faced commonly in families. Delivered with a sense of humour & interesting " spins". Subject matter (s) make me wonder if LD was a psychotherapist in another life. I was surprised at the depth of the stories in this book, as I usually find this author 's approach more frivolous. Theme is of Several stories of the lives of several women, (all partnered to a family of Jones men) ,running side by side.

Yes!

As always Lucy Diamond writes a novel that is easy to follow and heart warming.
Read exceptionally well by Jilly Bond.
Some what predictable but none the less worth every minute of listening!
