Publisher's Summary

Detective Sanne Jensen (not blonde, not tall, definitely not Scandinavian) and Dr. Meg Fielding (scruffy, scatterbrained, prone to swearing at patients) are lifelong best friends, sharing the same deprived background and occasionally the same bed. When a violent kidnapping stuns the Peak District village of Rowlee, both women become involved in the case.

As Sanne and her colleagues in East Derbyshire Special Ops search for the culprit, and Meg fights to keep his victim alive, a shocking discovery turns the investigation on its head. With the clock ticking, Sanne and Meg find themselves pushed closer by a crime that threatens to tear everything apart.

    "YA?"

    I got tickled as this book rolled along - I wondered who would play the girls' parts in the movie- maybe the young Shirley Temple and Haley Mills? (yes, I am older) This book started well, promises of good plot and serious police work. But there were so many side trips into character development ( except the victim's) that the grist of what could have been a very good book didn't quite make it. Hopefully the author will buckle down, get a good editor and produce more books in what could be a good series. Worth the cost for a light read with better to come.

    "Seriously, LOTS of Room for a Series"

    You know what I like about Cari Hunter's characters -- other than the way Nicola Victoria Vincent narrates them? The characters are this blend of serious, funny, cheeky, strong women. The characters aren't a blend of some formula.... I can see the rescue worker in Snowbound interacting with Meg in this book, No Good Reason. I can see Sane (Sah'nah) hanging out with Alex from Desolation Point.

    I like Nelson well enough, but if Alex and Sarah ended up in North Umberland for peace and quiet of rural England, and Alex chose to get back on the horse as a copper under Eleanor.

    Then, were Alex to be partnered with Sane or Sane and Nelson, that'd be just fine with me. American and U.K. police work combined.... THEN all they'd need is a nice portion of Irish and Scottish lasses for the culmination. That'd be cool. Great righting! Cheers!

    "Wowsa"
    What made the experience of listening to No Good Reason the most enjoyable?

    My first British murder mystery and I loved it. Great humor, lovely relationship, good angst. Pretty perfect all the way around.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Edge of my seat but not full throttle adrenaline until the end, as it should be. Great character development which made it even more enjoyable.


    What does Nicola Victoria Vincent bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I read all the Harry Potter books and they were fun but I got so much more out of the story when I listened to Jim Dale perform them. Same in this case.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    So worth the time and financial commitment.

    "narrator was awesome"

    the book was good but not awesome. I wish there was more hot scenes with sana and Meg. what happened to the victims were very vague but maybe for the best. you def didn't know who the perp was until the end.

    "Lots of Twists and Turns!"

    I enjoyed this book. The characters were interesting and had depth, along with good chemistry. I especially like the twists and turns of the plot. I didnt figure it out til the end, which is always a good thing. So many plots are predictable, so this was an added bonus for the book. Overall, great book. I look forward to the rest in the series!

    Narration was perfect. Story was original and believable. The story moved at a good pace and kept you guessing throughout most of the book. This is my new favorite after over 100 audiobook!

    "Fantastic!"

    This is the second book I have listened to by the awesome team that is Cari Hunter and Nicola Victoria Vincent and it's such a good listen. Cari Hunter has written a great crime thriller and once again Ms Vincent has read it beautifully with great characterisations. It is a credit to them both that the lead characters Sannah and Meg are so real and likeable as well as a brilliant portrayal of Sannah's police partner Nelson and the hapless Ned. Brilliant work and I can't wait for the next one!

    "page turner"

    fantastic plot. Ms. Hunter weaves masterful stories. I personally like the Northern UK setting, colloquial terms and the narrator's accent. I felt like I was listening to the author herself.

    "Excellent!"

    I loved No Good reason. Absolutely excellent story, plot and narration. I could not get enough of Sanne and Meg. Sanne's partner at work, Nelson, is a great character. Great combination of romance, friendship, thriller, mystery and police procedure. Loved Nicola Victoria Vincent as a narrator.
    Even thought I have read all the books in the series I HOPE Audible is putting out Cold to the Touch and A Quiet Death. PPLLEEAASE!

    "Brilliant Crime story"

    Loved this story. A gripping crime story with just the right amount of sex, violence, humour and pace to make the story interesting and the listener to want to find out more of what is going on. Have read a few this author's books, but this is certainly the best so far. Look forward to listening to the sequel! The narration is very good to, can almost hear Cari Hunter's voice in this, especially when the characters swear...lol!

    Story
    "I cried so hard."

    I'm not sure I want to hear another story like this. It was heartbreaking, but in both happy and sad ways. I think I'll need a month or so to recover from this story before I try another.

    Some of the coincidences the story relied on stuck out a bit much - I know in real life coincidences do happen, but the one that wraps it all up strained my credulity a bit more than makes me comfortable.

    In all, a good story, performed expertly.

    "Gripping thriller"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a really gripping thriller that had me hooked from the first and that I had to keep listening to, even though I'd already read the book. The characters are really likeable and you feel for them throughout. The story is a real rollercoaster of emotions.<br/><br/>The narrator did a great job with all the characters and accents. She's not someone I've listened to before but I'll certainly look forward to hearing her again. It's a great high quality recording.<br/><br/>Now I'm just hoping that the second book in the series is being recorded!<br/><br/>
