Fantastic Original Book
I really enjoyed this book it was totally original. The premise of the story was intriguing, what makes an ordinary British woman fall in love with an American murderer on death row? The way in which this question was dealt with had me gripped from page one and I could barely stop until it was finished. The narration was really good and Christina really conveyed Samantha. The ending was excellent tense and nerve shattering with a final twist. My only criticism would be that I would have liked the portrait of Samantha to have been drawn out a bit more. The press described her in a certain way, but this was never confirmed by Amy Lloyd in her narrative and I felt that I really wanted to know what she actually looked like and if this had any bearing on her actions. Overall a brilliant book.

Wow! This held my attention!
I wasn’t sure that I would enjoy this in the early chapters, but when it got going I could hardly bear to put it down. The writing draws the listener into the heavy, humidity and isolation of rural Florida. The tension is palpable and the characters well drawn. There were a couple of sloppy errors. e.g. ‘he changed into a clean, striped shirt . . . she pressed her face into his white shirt’. However, these were momentary distractions and not enough to detract from the rating if this powerful book.
