Poor old Clarissa, so many losses !! surely at least one character could have stuck around. As the list of deceased lengthened, I began to wonder if Erica James had run out of ideas , didn't know quite where to go with these characters so sent them on their way via the coffin shuttle. 62 chapters of dreariness

Spoilt by the narrator

Would you try another book written by Erica James or narrated by Genevieve Swallow?

I have now tried at least half a dozen times to listen to this but the narrators appallingly​ bad accents just ruins it if she thinks she can do a Norfolk accent please disabuse her of this it was just irritating and at times she forgets which a cent shes meant to be using. I think the story feels as though it would be great but Ill never know
