House of Correction – Nicci French Audiobook version

Author:  Nicci French

Narrated by: Gemma Whelan

The story:

There is a body found in Tabatha’s shed – its her neighbour. She must be guilty right? She never really fitted into the village, everyone has an opinion on the funny dressed girl, she must have done it.

Tabatha is in prison awaiting trial for Murder on a day that she is struggling to remember clearly. She has everything to lose and no one to help her. This is a fight for her life….

The story is very interesting as it follows Tabatha from prison to the court room. I found it to be a great read, it kept my interest and I will be looking for more by this author.

The narration:

The narration was excellent. A great tone of voice and read at a good pace.

Contacts – Mark Watson Audiobook

Author:  Mark Watson

Narrated by: The author

4* from me…

The story:

We begin with James, boarding the night train at London heading for Edinburgh. He text messages all the contacts in his phone (friends, family and even people he barely knows) to tell them that he intends to end his life in the morning…

This obviously sends a lot of people in to panic, and we follow some them on the journey of finding James before it’s too late… We learn a bit about their time with him and how they became contacts in his phone and a part of his life.

Time is running out and his phone is switched off…

The narration:

I am not normally a fan of the author narrating the story – due to their lack of acting skills and experience. Mark did a good job and read at a good pace. There perhaps could have been a bit more drama in his voice when people were concerned and panicking to reflect their emotions.

My Darling – (Audiobook version)

Author: Amanda Robson

Narrated by: Laura Costello and Matt Addis

The Story:

This is an absolutely great read! Full of suspense, drama and more than a few twists! The story starts with a new couple moving in next door and then the drama unfolds… It’s a real page turner of a tale! Halfway through the story I thought I had it sussed then BAM the twists started and I was guessing and page turning until the end.

The Narration:

I love it when there are more than one narrator, this makes it much easier to follow when the story is being told from different perspectives.  

4* from me.

One Perfect Morning…

One Perfect Morning by Pamela Crane, narrated by Sarah Borges

One Perfect Morning: The gripping new pyschological crime thriller with a twist – a perfect escapist read for Summer 2020 by [Pamela Crane]

This is a tale about 3 ladies, Mackenzie, Robin and Lilly and their friendship spanning from teens to adulthood. Everything looks just so perfect from the outside but there are dark secrets and lies beneath the surface and someone dies…..

I enjoyed listening to this story although I did find that with just the one narrator, I was easily confused as to who’s tale was being told during the story, and got a little lost.

Overall I really enjoyed this tale – I just wish I had perhaps made some notes from the outset as to whom was who as there are quite a few main characters to keep up with.

4/5 stars from me and I would recommend.
