Publisher's Summary

Everyone keeps telling me I have to move on. And so here I am, walking down the road where he died, trying to remember him the right way.
A year after her husband Zach's death, Lizzie goes to lay flowers where his fatal accident took place. As she makes her way along the motorway, she thinks about their life together. She wonders whether she has changed since Zach died. She wonders if she will ever feel whole again. At last she reaches the spot. And there, tied to a tree, is a bunch of lilies. The flowers are addressed to her husband. Someone has been there before her.
Lizzie loved Zach. She really did. But she's starting to realise she didn't really know him. Or what he was capable of.

Gripping but not entirely plausible

I don't necessarily expect to find this type of fiction wholly realistic, and in this case that is just as well. On the plus side, this is a genuine page turner and I found myself making excuses to hide a way and listen to the next chapter. Zach is a brilliant character and the slow reveal of the true nature of his personality is enthralling. I was less enchanted with Lizzie whose passive aggressive personality seemed to be more of a plot device than a portrayal of a real person. I also thought her relationship with Anya was way beyond convincing and her reaction to one particular revelation was frankly ridiculous. The tightly written plot was the thing that kept me going to the end but I was disappointed that the ending revealed many red herrings in the plot, and this made me feel that the whole thing was not nearly as clever as it originally appeared. The performance of both narrators was excellent, even down to Anya’s squirmy teenage voice.

Brilliant!

Having read the first review I almost didn't listen to this book as the voice of the narrator is so important to me, but I'm glad I made my own mind up! Yes, Lizzie's voice is girly, but, it's a well modulated British RP accent and fitted very well with a shy, insecure librarian so appropriate in my view. She also did the male voices very well. Zach's voice was also very easy to listen to, so no problem there. If I had purchased this in paper form, I would describe it as a page turner, however as I only listen to books these days I will have to find another accolade. A compulsive listen maybe? Give it a go, I'm confident most of you will be glad you did, even if it does put you off internet dating for life! Let's face it...if you don't enjoy it as much as clearly have, then there is always the guarantee of returning it so you won't waste a credit if it's not for you! :-)
