Yet another cracker !!!!

What made the experience of listening to Jam and Roses the most enjoyable?

The storyline was exciting with strong characters but also the narrator Anne Dover made it a joy to listen to with all her different voices she brings it alive

Who was your favorite character and why?

Milly is my favourite, she has great strength in personality which reminds me of my many cockney aunties i have

Have you listened to any of Anne Dover’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is yet another fantastic performance by Anne Dove to me she has got to be the best,listened to her many times and hope she reads any future books by Mary Gibson

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

Found the story very emotional in places, i laughed while washing up,cried while doing the ironing , and raged while hoovering

Any additional comments?

Cannot wait for the next book, i can see me getting seriously hooked to the Mary GIbson books and will probably listen to them over and over again
