A woman's body lies in the road. At first it looks like a tragic accident. But when Helen Grace arrives on the scene it's clear she's looking at a coldblooded killing. But why would anyone target a much-loved wife and mother?

Across town, a shopkeeper is killed while his customers are left unharmed. But what lies behind the killer's choices?

Who writes the descriptions?

Would you try another book from M. J. Arlidge and/or Elizabeth Bower?

Yes

If you’ve listened to books by M. J. Arlidge before, how does this one compare?

I didn't enjoy it as much. I was very much looking forward to it, but was disappointed.

Was Love Me Not worth the listening time?

I wouldn't go as far as saying that.

Any additional comments?

The scenes in the description of the audiobook never occurred, ever. Also, there were too many implausible moments that occurred because characters just weren't answering their phones. It was getting silly.

Love me Not

Thoroughly enjoyed this book, loved the narration and the story. Not the ending I expected, but kept you guessing throughout the story.

I really wanted to love this

Unfortunately I found this kind of dull. I would love for the author to go back to his earlier books like Eeny Meeny. The narrator remains top notch but overall, it was just dull. I'll probably get the next title but I hope it's a return to form.

Aldridge hits it out of the park.

This is a great addition to this series. Unlike many series you don't have to have read the previous books

Preposterous!

No spoilers but the detective, who has recently been released from prison after being acquitted for killing 3 people, is now in charge of her former unit that was primarily responsible for her arrest and conviction (must have been a previous book) (no hard feelings, huh?). I know that fiction requires suspension of disbelief, but the only disbelief I have about this detective story is the number of "fives" other readers rated it. Finally, is this Detective Grace any relation to Roy Grace in the Peter James series?

Really Gripping!

I read most of this in one day. The story was really good and kept me wondering.
No real twists or anything like that just a really exciting crime book.
Glad that Helen Grace is back!!!

excellent as usual

MJ Arlidge has a wonderful way with words and the narrator captures the tone perfectly Helen Grace is a greatly troubled character but one is strangely drawn to her. More please!!!!

SUCH A DISAPOINTMENT - AGAIN!

What could M. J. Arlidge have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I'm sorry to post a negative review but for faithful followers of this series of books this will be such a disappointment. Really just another short story that does not develop the characters at all. Literally just a police exercise to catch a teenager who seems to have an extremely poor excuse for going on a terror rampage.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment and frustration as I so enjoyed the first few books up to the prison debacle.

Any additional comments?

Just hope that the author can be willing to spend some more time developing a more extensive plot and future for her characters in this once excellent series!

Disappointing

I was extremely disappointed with this book, I have been a Helen Grace fan since Eeny Meeny but apparently, Helen has lost all interest in life and this book sums up that lack of zest nicely, it is nothing more than a race against time to catch a teenager who has had a horrible life. (This teenager is pretty smart though, outwitting the Police rather easily).

Now I do believe that new readers (listeners) may well enjoy this story, it is reasonably well narrated although a little dreary overall (that is my own personal taste and others may disagree), but I would be surprised if any Helen Grace fans would actually enjoy this book, it is just NOT Helen Grace, it's a pale, uninteresting and extremely annoying version of her.

I would like to see the real Helen Grace resurrected at some point but it seems that maybe the author has lost interest in her.

Disappointing

I've read all of the Di Helen Grace books and enjoyed them all and looked forward to this one being released
Unfortunately I found the story weak and the idea of the timeline reduced its credibility.
Maybe this was just a blip and the next book will be back on track.

Another gripping book

As most reviewers have mentioned, this book is set in real time so it gives it a real feel.
I disagree with some saying that Helen is moody in this because if you've read the other books then you could forgive her for her darker attitude but because of the fast pace in this book then her darkness doesn't really come through.
Very mixed emotions for the bad guys in this book. M J Aldridge has an amazing way of making you feel sorry and sadness one minute then hate and anger the next. Again, there were moments of gasps, shouting at the speaker, cliff hangers.....Ive now listened to all 7 books in 2 and half months and I'm really really hoping that book 8 is on its way.
Get this book and enjoy the ride.

Disappointing/ Audible description error too

I have read all the previous Helen Grace books, this instalment is a disappointment, silly plot holes and very predictable!

Audible description also not correct, first half is referring to another story not this one!

Disappointed

Bought this book based on the fact I've read the rest of the series from the start, the initial books were dark, suspenseful with well constructed plots. I thought the previous book was a dip in form but this hits new lows. I'm unlikely to buy the next.

A bit disappointing

This book certainly does not have the same page turner as previous books had. I finished it not for any other reason than I couldn’t sleep because of the heat and I wanted to ad figured I might as well. This is nothing near as good as the first few which were really good.

Most Disappointing

If ever it was time to kill off DI Helen Grace, this is the book.
Time she left the scene altogether.
Her skill as a DI is driven by her narsasitic, screwed up view of the world and herself within this world. Her so called interest in her newphew - drove him over the edge - time for her to be put to death, end the series with an appropriate end.
