Decent Mystery

I was very interested at the start of 'Sweet Karoline,' but as the book went on I got sort of lost. I feel like I missed some important plot points - how did Anne find out about her long, lost family in the first place? There were a lot of crucial questions that went unanswered for me by the end of the story, to the point where I was disappointed that I hung in there the whole way through. If the story had a faster pace and a clearer plot I think I would have enjoyed it a lot more! The narration was good and helped me get through to the end.

Great once you get going

I enjoyed this audio recording. I had trouble at first. For me, there was too much character development, especially with a few minor characters. Once things get going, the story is a good one with a fun finish.

A little scary in places, but a good story with a good narrator brings this book to the forefront. I received this audio book for free at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

Not my style

I don’t enjoy spending a lot of time inside one person’s head. I enjoy interaction with characters that involve real-time conversations, not just remembrances of conversations by one person.

I almost gave up on this one, very glad i didn'!!!

This book goes back and forth in time which gets very distracting and hard for me to follow. It starts off somewhere near the middle/end of the story and leaves you wondering the heck really happened until the end. I guessed what happened, but not the why and how which was one of the things that made this book so great! but there were multiple other parts that totally shocked me. absolutely loved it and will listen to it again.

Suicide or Not?

This story is about smart, beautiful Anne Williams and her best friend Karoline and explores the complex relationship between the two friends. Anne endures great suffering with feelings of shame and guilt after Karoline’s fall from their 7th floor apartment balcony. Anne travels to Canada where she discovers her true family and uncovers painful childhood events and discovers a family history filled with unexpected crimes and betrayals.
I listened to the audio version of this book and had a difficult time getting into the story at the beginning. The book however; developed slowly into an excellent mystery with great character development that I could not wait to finish.
