What did you like most about Brighton Belle?
A nicely structured narrative with interesting characters set in an era that has always intrigued me. There were a couple of twists and turns in the story but I found some of the plot a little predictable. There is a developing crime solving partnership and friendship between two women at the centre of the action which is promising for the future. There are a few quite judgemental attitudes, including towards sex workers, that are expressed by the author. It is not clear if this is part of the setting the scene, the author's opinions or both.
The listing for this title is inaccurate. It states it is narrated by Penelope Freeman, but it is the author who narrates as is stated in the recording. Sara Sheridan is a talented author, but she should NOT narrate. She speaks too fast, does not differentiate between characters and everything runs together. I'm sure she knows her story better than anyone else, but she simply destroys the experience of the story. Very disappointed.
