Publisher's Summary

Harriet Compton-Milne can’t remember a time when she wasn’t worried. Just 21, the qualified jeweller feels old before her time. She can match stones and mend a watch – but she can’t leave Bolton because her brother, Ben, an OCD-riddled genius, wouldn’t be able to cope without her.
Her eccentric parents aren’t much help: her boffin father is more interested in toy trains than his family, and her mother Lisa’s face is so full of Botox that she can no longer express any emotion.
But when big trouble arrives, the family – including Hermione, Harriet’s acerbic, attic-dwelling grandmother – will have to act as a unit for the very first time if they are to survive with any degree of sanity.

A parallel story

I enjoy the stories of This author but this is not one of her best. The story includes too many characters with similar traits to those in her other works to make this an excellent listen. The narrator was excellent and did her best to make the story come to life.

a grippig story from ruth hamilton.

Any additional comments?

s blend of sad, funny and crime, with likeable characters who grow stronger with friendship makes a gripping story from ruth Hamilton.
usual good performance from marlene sideway who adds llife to the characters as she does in all ruth Hamilton's books.
