In vain have I struggled. It will not do. This audiobook is impossible to listen to, due to the dreadful mismatch of story (slightly chick-litty, but also with very serious subject matter such as murderous psychotic pedophiles) and narrator (who speaks in lively, chirpy-cheerful, sing-songy sentences that would be ideally suited to regular chick lit where no children get abducted and no one is brutally murdered).
If you try really, really hard, though, and repeat each sentence in your head in a serious (or even conversationally neutral/normal) voice, you can see that this is a reasonably good story with a plot you'd want to get to the end of, to find out what happens! I have given up and purchased the iBook, and I urge you to save yourself the anguish of attempting this grotesquely mis-narrated audiobook and just skip straight to reading the book yourself. It is a good story and, when you tell it to yourself, well told!

I thought this book was a bit slow, honestly, but I thought the narrator did a good job. Her voice is pleasant, and I could tell all the characters a part. Lots of plot twists as always. Somehow, I just wanted more dark suspense, I think. It didn't seem to gather momentum like some of Jayne's other books.
