If you tire of technology and gore, but long for a good mystery, this is an inviting tale. The historical atmosphere is woven artfully and the story moves comfortably along while incorporating the many twists in the plot. Well written & well narrated.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Secrets of Wishtide to be better than the print version?
No idea--only listened
What did you like best about this story?
The characters, probably. And the fact that Letitia tends to see the good in people.
What about Anna Bentinck’s performance did you like?
She was excellent at giving each character a distinct voice, at least within each scene. I will be looking for other things she's narrated.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No, but then I don't particularly want an extreme reaction to a book these days
Any additional comments?
This book will be too slow for many and not violent enough for others. Another reviewer objected to the inclusion of religious references and thoughts in the book, calling it "proselytizing", but there is actually no proselytizing at all in the book, merely a handful of entirely appropriate religious references, thoughts, and language, not overdone at all. Any story that purports to take place in that time and place that contains no religious reference at all would be false to the realities of the culture, especially for the widow of a bishop!
But if those things don't put you off, and you are looking for a pleasant listen to while away a few hours, this one will do you nicely.
