Rona Parish is eager for a fresh challenge after her successful articles on adopted children. A chance encounter with an old friend, Kate - now married into the Tarlton family, who own the oldest jewellery shop in Marsborough - sows the seed for a new series. Rona plans to research the histories of several long-established family firms in the town. Kate also enlists Rona's help in getting to the bottom of her sister-in-law Freya's terrifying nightmares after a tune from a musical box triggers a severe reaction.

another good story..

Would you listen to A Family Concern again? Why?

yes but it would be a long time in the future then i wouldn't be able to remember who did it (which was a surprise)

What did you like best about this story?

the interweaving stories of the families concerned.

What about Jacqueline Tong’s performance did you like?

she gives life to the characters which involves you with them and the situations they find themselves in far more than reading a the book.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

the ending left me stunned because I thought it was someone else who committed the crime.

Any additional comments?

I am really enjoying this series so far and am looking forward to the next book. to what will happen in rhona's family and what will she be researching next, another series of articles or a biography.
