Irritated by narrator but good story

I found the narrator annoying, it seemed when she was reading it that she was in a 'sing song' happy voice! - and some of the darkest saddest parts for the main character should have been performed with more emotion. The story was very good and I enjoyed the book , however the ending was a real let down , and not what I was expecting.

Incredibly dull.

I've got a few of Elizabeth Haynes books and enjoyed them all. But this one could have been written by someone else. It was long winded, uneventful and seemed full of useless information designed to pad the story out.
I struggled to get to the end and at points I found myself switching off because of how tedious it was.
The narration wasn't great and made every character have the same inflection which in turn made them sound soulless. I found it hard to like any of the people in it and Jason and Lou just made me cringe. There was no character for any of them, they all sounded empty and damaged. Lou was my least favourite. I don't know what happened here but as much as I love Elizabeth Haynes books, I'm convinced she just banged this one out in a rush. When I finally got to the end of this book, I was glad it was over.
