And then a woman arrives on Gen's doorstep, saying the very thing she longs to hear: that her daughter was not stillborn, but was spirited away as a healthy child, and is out there, waiting to be found...
So why is Art reluctant to get involved? To save his wife from further hurt? Or something much more sinister? What is the truth about Beth Loxley?

Really?? Far fetched and then some!
The narration I found ok and the book started off well but while its ok in part it is so far fetched to be unbelievable. I could say so much and give so many examples but suffice to say it would reveal some of the plot and I do not wish to do that.
I work in the Obstetric field so reading this in so many places makes me cringe with disbelief. However if you wish a light summer read where you abandon all that could possibly happen and substitute it with all that could not then this story will work. I think Ms McKenzie should listen to her characters who said several times that this whole thing was too far fetched. They were so right.
I am going to ring Audible to give this one back.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
a better story
Has Close My Eyes put you off other books in this genre?
Have you listened to any of Candida Gubbins’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Yes and she is always excellent
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Close My Eyes?
I would cut parts of most scenes. The scenes are dragged out and this doesn't add to the suspense, it's just irritating.
Any additional comments?
The story is far fetched and doesn't suspend reality.
