Just to long

Good little story but so long and drawn out, I felt like it just needed condensing a bit.

Koomson doesn't disappoint

Loved this book. This is the first audio book I've had and I was unsure if it was my thing but was struggling to find time to read the things I wanted.
This book really is great. I'm always apprehensive reading a new book by an author I really like as I worry that it won't be as good as the previous ones. Having read My Best Friends Girl (My favourite book) and Goodnight Beautiful I had this fear but Koomson catches your interest immediately.
This is definitely being added to my list of favourite books.
