Publisher's summary

The main action takes place in rural Kent and London. It looks at the dramatic incidents, challenges, and temptations in the past and present lives of four couples of varying ages, professions, and sexual persuasions, all linked by either blood or friendship. The negative, selfish, sometimes violent, natures of some of the characters in Potholes and Magic Carpets wreak havoc on the innocent. A tale of not so simple folk.

Strange, but enjoyable nonetheless

This unusual work of fiction captured my attention from start to finish in part due to the author’s storytelling talent and in part (surely unintentionally) due to its odd construction. The stories had a disjointed quality to them – the flow from one story to the next wasn’t entirely smooth. However, that never once really bothered me. I was content just to move from story to story. It’s sort of like hanging out with a friend or colleague who you know is totally odd, but you enjoy their company in spite of that oddness (and in some part because of it, if you’re being honest with yourself). I didn’t love how the author left some gaping potholes in her plot (ha, bad pun intended) whilst tying up other stories a bit too neatly at the end, but none of that bothered me enough to color the entire reading experience negatively. I thought the narrator did a great job here and I think this author could really shine with just a little more polish. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
