This is the 2nd audiobook I listen to with a gripping story written by Sarah Denzil. Sophie McShera (known as Daisy from "Downton Abbey") did an excellent job narrating. I spent a good portion trying to figure things out. I don't mean that negatively. It becomes apparent early on that these women have secrets! I found myself feeling compassion for certain characters and then anger towards other characters. And then, what I love about any good book, just when I thought I had everyone and everything figured out......I discover that I was wrong! Who doesn't love a good book with an unexpected twist?!

In an attempt to build on the success of the highly-publicised Silent Child Audible have quickly moved to release one of Sarah Denzil's earlier novels with Saving April. It is an enjoyable enough listen and Sophie McShera does a really decent job of injecting life into it.
If you want more of Sarah Denzil then it is worth a shot. You'll get a tidy domestic drama albeit one populated by rather weak characters and with a key twist that I think most people will have guessed well before the end. However, it is overshadowed in every way by Silent Child which is a significantly bigger and better book.

poor story, only 2 or 3 interesting chapters, should be a short story not novel

This is a very short story and in my opinion rather boring. Compared to her other book which I listened to within two days it had so many hooks and twists whereas this was just felt boring and a bit of a reused story line. I expected a lot more. The reader had a lovely voice. Maybe my personal preference is for a good plot twist.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
The ending, as of much of a twist it is, it happens so quickly. April's character didn't feel developed enough for you to relate or even make her seem like a real character.
Would you recommend Saving April to your friends? Why or why not?
It's a great starter book, however not the best.
What about Sophie McShera’s performance did you like?
The voice over was brilliant. It was captivating and felt like the characters were really speaking.
Do you think Saving April needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Yes! We need to know what happened to April before and after the book. The book revolved around Hannah and Laura - April was kind of thrown in there.
