I‘m pretty sure this was my first Lisa Gardner,but it definitely won‘t be my last. Lots of twists and turns kept me on my toes. This was just an ‘extra‘ audiobook,which I normally listen to just at night as I‘m falling asleep,but I couldn‘t wait to get back to it this morning.

I normally love Joy‘s books but this one fell a little flat for me. I was disappointed with the lack of suspense. It was more chick lit than thriller for me.

Brenda @MelissaSue81 It‘s an iPod nano. We‘ve had it for a while so not sure if you can still get them. I love it because it‘s so small,and it clips to my shirt. 6mo
MelissaSue81 @Brenda - oh yeah, I remember those. I don‘t think I knew you could put audio books on them. 6mo
Brenda @MelissaSue81 There is an audiobook folder,but if you transfer direct from the library they go into music. I load them to iTunes and edit the format. 6mo

I grabbed this from the library,not realizing it‘s the second book in the Rosato & DiNunzio series. It‘s better than Accused, without the over the top narration. An easy listen while doing chores. 🎧📚

Perhaps the book is better. The story itself was fine,but I would be happy to have heard far less about Mary‘s family. The narration, especially the overly loud impressions of the family members ,was so over the top it bordered on ridiculous. 🙄

This was enjoyable enough to listen to,but it was pretty light on content for me. Some sweet stories of Reese‘s upbringing , but not a lot I could relate to as I‘m nowhere near a girly girl 👧I chuckled when she said she can do a ‘quick‘ makeup in 20 minutes. 😂

Although not my favourite Kate Atkinson,I did enjoy this book. A bit of meandering through the story,with a rather large cast of characters, made it harder to follow the audiobook at times,so I went back to the ebook for those sections.

I‘ve almost bought this book a few times,so when the audio came available at my library I snagged it. My intention was to listen a bit to see if I‘d be interested in the book. Well,I ended up listening to the whole book. It‘s short,and poignant , so touching and sad all at once. As my kids would say “all the feels” with this one 📚💕
