I loved this audiobook! Michel Bussi is the best ever. Amazing. Awesome. The narrator Joan Walker is great too.
I read a good review of the printed form of this book, on the strength of which I bought the audible version. Less than half way through I returned it as the reader made it unlistenable. I found myself drifting off and missing chunks of story - she reads with a sort of world weary dreariness, every character sounding the same. I think this may be a good book but the reader ruins it completely.

This is a story that surprises you in the richness of the characters and description of life in the French town of Giverny. Beautifully written, intriguing and mysterious; the story is told mainly through the eyes of an 86 year old widow. I was blown away by the ending of this story. You know it's been an amazing read when you literally gasp out loud and then question everything you've read. Brilliant. I loved the narration of the story too. Definitely one of my favourite reads. If you enjoy Joanne Harris or Carlos Ruiz Zafron, then you'll love this.

This is a well written book of well-drawn characters. If part of the appeal of reading crime fiction is the chance to anticipate before the reveal who is the villain, the writer's use of a few "tricks" disappointed this reader.
