I would rather have not rated this novel, because I know that I cannot be fair, but…
I'm afraid that I did not give the novel time to grip me - I progressed to chapter 4, but I really couldn't tolerate the narrator's voice! I found it quite grating - that doesn't normally happen with me, I can accept most accents, dialects and tones, but not Justine Eyre's I'm afraid. Listen to the sample first and then make your decision. The general reviews were ok, but I couldn't get sufficiently into the book to say if it was any good. Slow starting.

The Woman on the orient express by Lindsey Jayne Ashford
I really enjoyed this book.
It is well written, and holds your attention throughout, all the storylines are dealt with in a sensitive manner, and you feel involved in the lives of the characters.

Very enjoyable "woman on transportation" book
After being thoroughly disgusted with Girl on a Train, and The Woman in Cabin 10 and their neurotic, alcoholic, unreliable narrators, I was delighted to find a book with a protagonist I could stand being in the company of. This is a fictionalized account of a period in Agatha Christie's life, and I found the story engrossing and entertaining. Some mystery, some suspense, some romance, some exotic locations, and a ride on the Orient Express adds up to some fun reading/listening.
Other than when she was attempting various foreign accents (thankfully, very brief), the narrator does a good job and is pleasant to listen to.

A great read
Most of the time I buy audio books because of the genera and rating without always reading the summary of what the book is about. Bring a Netflix binge watcher of Poirot, I was pleasantly surprised that this book was about Agatha Christie. It was beautifully written and had heartwarming story. It's one I will certainly listen to again.
