Oh my goodness , my book choice varies quite dramatically , and then I thought let's give this one a chance , boring too the extreme .....
I enjoyed it on the whole but found the incessant repeating of certain details very frustrating! Elsas need to pay for what she had been done repeated 7 or 8 times for example . felt a little too much like being spoon fed too often
What did you like most about Between Sisters?
Between Sisters for me was a brilliant listen as with all the wonderful characters who really mattered to each part of the story. I loved how the author brought them into each part of the storyline.
Coco and Cassie are devoted to each other simply because they had to be as their mother left them both when they were small. Coco was only a baby therefore, she does not really remember her mother she only remembers her father always being sad. Cassie remembers her Mum, and she carries the heartache of her leaving them throughout her life which you will see through the main storyline.
The sisters are the two main characters, there are supporting characters which really mattered to the storyline and each of them had an important part to play.
This book had it all, broken hearts, broken promises, alcohol dependency and so much more.
What other book might you compare Between Sisters to, and why?
I would compare this to all of Cathy Kelly's books as she has a wonderful gift of understanding human emotions and how they can control your past and present.
What does Caroline Lennon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Caroline Lennon has a gift of giving each of the characters a separate voice, not only that she brought the story alive through a way of not only narrating Cathy Kelly's own writing but acting out the story - in fact she did it so well I knew immediately who she was talking about simply by the tone of her voice!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
YES!!! I was always stealing moments to listen to more of Coco and Cassie's life plus their darling grandmother Pearl.
Any additional comments?
simply I loved it... one of the best books I have received from Audible..

Any additional comments?
I haven't read this author before as I had the impression (probably due to the covers and titles) that her novels would be of the fluffy, with no substance variety of chic lit. However, something about the synopsis of Between Sisters attracted me and I bought it as a 'palette cleanser' between crime fiction tales. In the event, I found it to be a lovely, absorbing story. All of the characters were well written and engaging. A really good read/listen.

Would you try another book written by Cathy Kelly or narrated by Caroline Lennon?
I would not try another book written by Cathy Kelly. I purchased this book because Caroline Lennon was narrating but even Caroline could not help me on this one.
Has Between Sisters put you off other books in this genre?
No - but I won't be looking for Cathy kelly
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
I find Caroline Lennon generally pretty good. I think it was the subject matter that created the problem.
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
No I couldn't finish it.
