Sarah Carpenter lives in an isolated farmhouse in North Yorkshire, and for the first time after the death of her husband some years ago and her children, Louis and Kitty, leaving for university, she's living alone. But she doesn't consider herself lonely. She has two dogs, a wide network of friends and the support of her best friend, Sophie.
When an old acquaintance, Aiden Beck, needs somewhere to stay for a while, Sarah's cottage seems ideal, and renewing her relationship with Aiden gives her a reason to smile again. It's supposed to be temporary, but not everyone is comfortable with the arrangement: her children are wary of his motives, and Will Brewer, an old friend of her son's, seems to have taken it upon himself to check up on Sarah at every opportunity.
Even Sophie has grown remote and distant. After Sophie disappears, it's clear she hasn't been entirely honest with anyone, including Will, who seems more concerned for Sarah's safety than anyone else. As the weather closes in, events take a dramatic turn, and Kitty, too, goes missing.
Suddenly Sarah finds herself in terrible danger, unsure of who she can still trust. But she isn't facing this alone; she has Aiden, and Aiden offers the protection that Sarah needs. Doesn't he?

A pile of soft porn!
When you're introduced to a book as being a tense psychological thriller, you don't expect to have to put up with quite as many elongated sex scenes as were in this novel.
I felt completely unable to sympathise for the main character. And on top of that, the plot progression and supposed twists were both farcical and predictable.
The narration was probably the only reason I got as far through the book as I did. I will look forward to seeing Mark Meadows' name on any further audiobook I buy. But I doubt I'll be trying any novels by Elizabeth Haynes again.

If you could sum up Never Alone in three words, what would they be?
Good enjoyable read.
Any additional comments?
Another excellent book by Elizabeth Haynes. Well narrated by Mark Meadows.The story has plenty of drama and suspense with no excessive violent scenes (which I hate). Never Alone kept my full attention right to the last page.

Mr Hayes writes great stories with characters who are complex, flawed..... and you care about what happens to them. Including sex is fine but I really think the author overdoes the detailed 'interludes '..it goes on and on...! if the sex desciptions (though well written) were about half as long, the book would be just about perfect in its genre. A good read.

A little slow
The narrater was excellent, I wish I could say the same about the story.
It was ok but a bit disjointed and very slow not a fan .
