Drama upon on Drama

Would you try another book from Sophie McKenzie and/or Clare Corbett?

I have listened to Clare Corbett read other books and have enjoyed her narration, but not in this one.

Would you recommend Trust in Me to your friends? Why or why not?

No, because the story is improbable and over dramatic and these aspects are worsened by the histrionic reading by Clare Corbett. She became to me becomes increasingly irritating and makes the story all the more unbelievable.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Clare Corbett?

Perhaps someone like Beth Chalmers would improve the credibility of the story.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Trust in Me?

Rather than cutting out particular scenes, it would be preferable to reduce the highly coloured action and events that constantly occur and cut out the improbable and constant over reactions of the heroine.

Gripped from beginning to end

Despite other reviews I took a chance and purchased this book as the 4th one by the author! I loved it! So easy to listen too, at first I thought the bland tone would drive me crazy but it did not, the accents were excellent and the different voices were also good and added to the interest of the overall story. A great audio!

you will be on the edge of your seat to the end

few books have kept me so enthralled and unsure of who the baddy is until the very end of the book. Each chapter I changed my mind. Beautifully read as well

Breathholding

Would you listen to Trust in Me again? Why?

This book kept me on the edge of my seat listening to it. I couldn't switch it off.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Parts of the book amused me. Other parts had me on edge.

Any additional comments?

Brilliantly written book.

enjoyable thriller

The narrator was great, her children's and men's voices were convincing. I enjoyed the story and found it easy to follow.

All highly improbable, but v enjoyable nonetheless

Any additional comments?

Enjoyed this book. A plot with lots of twists and some nail-biting situations. Yes, it has elements of improbability as many thrillers do - in particular, why didn't she just go to the police? However it was well written with (mostly) believable characters and I found it a real page turner. The narrator was great and handled the child and male voices really well (not always the case). From a personal point of view I enjoyed that the story was set in Exeter and other parts of the West Country - Bridport, Honiton, Salisbury, Bath - which makes a refreshing change.

Fantastic. Gripping

I couldn't stop listening to this book. A gripping and most thrilling story from beginning to end. Well constructed and highly recommended.

Very irritating lead character

The basic idea for the story is ok but the lead character makes silly choices and fails to use common sense. The final situation has some implausible cap fitting and it stretches the imagination to believe that one man can overwhelm everyone without opposition.

A real page turner

If you love psychological thrillers this is for you. There were lots of twists and turns and I didn't see a lot of them coming. Well written but not my favourite reader.

Didn't need other point of view

Excellent story spoilt by alternative voice. It didn't need it. Otherwise great listen, characterful narrator.
