Kept me hooked

Engaging characters, tricky plot
A cleaning lady hears and sees things, and Lily's past makes her reluctant to go straight to the police. I was completely gripped and very satisfied with the way all the plot clues mesh.

Well plotted mystery

An Agatha Christie style mystery with an outsider coming in to a wealthy family, and the clues all nicely hidden in the detail of the plot. A real pleasure.

Sexy and romantic

The narrators accent and slow delivery was perfect for the kindly cowboy who finds that even a family in the middle of the city can both love and need him. Although there's plenty of humour and sex, the whole book is very gentle, making it a challenge for the reader to get pace and vocal variety into the final chapters. I've listened to it a couple of times, and really enjoyed it.

More from a great author

The previous book, The Deeds of Paksenarrion, is one of my all time favourite books, so I was delighted to have more in the same series. The fantasy world feels very real and the characters are solid and likeable. The narrator was well chosen, clear, pleasant to listen to and believable as the retired military main characters. Elizabeth Moon is known for capturing the feel of military life particularly well, including little details that give a strong sense of place and character. I'm just waiting for the next one in the series.

I love this series

Lily was a cheerful, well educated women when she was abducted and brutally raped. She survived, and built a new life and a new personality, but her relationship to her family and the people of her home town was changed and strained.
Even though in this book she's recovered a lot and has a successful reltionship she's still super quick to pick up on people's hidden motives, and determined not to be a victim.

A delightful fantasy

This kept me happily amused, as the arts and crafts background is fun, the Sleeping Beauty parallels don't make the plot too obvious and the narrators voice is plesant and well paced.
There were a lot of 'retakes' left in, so that you heard the sentance read incorrectly, then a pause followed by the corrected version. There were also a lot of words pronounced in a non-standard way- 'sere' as 'sir', 'mulish'as 'mullish', as if no-one had bothered to check the recording before they published it.
This was odd, but didn't really stop me enjoying the suspense or the romance and I'll probably buy the rest of this series.

Fun vampire detective

Zips along, very appealing main character, nice twist on the familiar genre. Well written and well read. I'm waiting for more.

Very enjoyable.

A nicely realised world, likeable heroes and a satisfactory resolution. I think you could listen to this novel without having heard the others in a series, but if you enjoy it it's good to know there's four more. This is one of the pleasures of Audible, when you find new writers without having seen their books elsewhere.
