Great book, excellent narration

It may seem confusing in the first few chapters but bear with it as all will become clear! Loved the characters, quirky Jack and down to earth Stella and the plot was clever and well thought out leaving the reader guessing to the end. This is the first book I have read by Lesley Thomson and I'm looking forward to more. Anna Bentinck's narration is excellent as always!
