Summary

Following her best-selling debut Into the Darkest Corner - an Amazon Best Book of 2011 and winner of Rising Stars - Elizabeth Haynes' second novel is a taut and gripping murder mystery introducing a compelling new heroine, Genevieve - office worker by day and pole dancer by night - who finds herself implicated in a mob underworld of murder, corruption, and betrayal.
Genevieve has finally escaped the stressful demands of her sales job and achieved her dream: to leave London behind and start a new life aboard a houseboat in Kent. But on the night of her boat-warming party the dream is shattered when a body washes up beside the boat, and she recognises the victim. As the sanctuary of the boatyard is threatened, and her life is increasingly at risk, the story of how Genevieve came to be so out of her depth unfolds, and she learns the real cost of mixing business with pleasure.

Unexpected

I was disappointed with this for one reason; the synopsis suggested a compelling murder mystery but what I actually got was a variation on the classic "chick-lit".

If you like chick-lit, you'll love this book. It has all the ingredients of this genre, and once I realised what I'd got and decided to listen to it for what it was, I did quite enjoy it. The narrator is perfect for this kind of book, but wouldn't sit right with a darker murder mystery.

I have rated it with only three stars because it is not what the synopsis suggests, but as a novel of its type it is an entertaining listen.

Perfect holiday listen

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes! I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Easy listening. I also enjoyed the story unfolding chapter by chapter and that there were not too many characters to keep track of. For me this audio book made for great holiday listening - no brainer stuff.
Karen Cass has become my favourite narrator. She differentiates the characters really well with changes in tone and accent, which makes listening very smooth.

Which character – as performed by Karen Cass – was your favorite?

The main character, Genevieve, is my favourite. I think she also did really well with Dylan - to convey his frostiness.
