Strong holiday read set in 50s and present day

At leas in this book there is a valid reason for the two time periods. Set In the world of publishing it deals with a writer and his female editor and then the writer's biographer and his editor 60 years later, moving the story on with justification. The two main protagonists are the female editors, budding career girls with shades of Lynn Barber and Shirley Conren then and chit lit now. But this isn't chit lit, the setting in the world if publishing gives it an intellectual edge, just enough to give the novel extra depth. Enjoy, it's a page turner

Can do better

Having enjoyed reading two of Rachel Hore's other books I was looking forward to this listen as a change amongst my thrillers. Gerri Halligan didn't do too badly but, for me, she was fighting something of a losing battle. We are introduced to the stories of two women, one from the 1940's one contemporary, both in publishing - but I cannot see that either of them were particularly on any form of quest for the truth, love or happiness (publishers blurb). Had I been a man in their lives I would have found them both immensely irritating and indeed I would go so far as to say that their characters seemed so far off beam I wouldn't have been surprised to have found them created by a man rather than a woman. Rachel Hore is a good writer and this plot had potential - but this time round its not been fully realised. I even foresaw the twist at the end. Having said that it was not an unpleasant listen and I never once thought about stopping before the end. I shall look forward to Rachel Hore's next which I hope will be back up to scratch.
