My second read by Veronica Henry and I was not disappointed. Easy listening and very enjoyable.
Like a book, I could not put my Ipod down as I just wanted to listen to the next chapter. Very well narrated.It was my first time listening to this author.I have since purchased two more from the same author.

Any additional comments?
I like Veronica Henry's books, they are light but fun, always with a good mix of reasonably believable characters. This is no exception, and actually has more twists and turns than usual. Several different strands interweaving into the main story, some of them - like the effect of Joe's death on his mother - really well done. The ending is signalled fairly clearly a few chapters beforehand but that doesn't really detract from it and Jilly Bond reads it well. So far, so good.
What let it down for me were the graphic sex descriptions that suddenly appear without reason or warning and were a bit disconcerting when driving! Books come in all different types; in some graphic descriptions are part and parcel of the oeuvre and I've no problem with that. But in this one, they are plonked in awkwardly almost as if some Agent has said to her "good writing, but spice the next one up to increase sales will you?" Veronica, don't take any notice of the marketing people next time. Your books are fine as they are.
