One to Watch is One to Listen To
I thought One to Watch was a great book. This is the 3rd installment in the Kay Hunter detective series, of which I am now a firm fan. Although I have chosen to read the series in order, I believe that One to Watch would be fine to listen to on its own, too. The main plot here is unique, with plenty of "I didn't see THAT coming!" moments. The author sets the stage with a teenage girl who is taking a 'Purity Pledge,' a concept that is actually common in some parts of the U.S., as we are shown by the priest who brings the ideals to this small English town. At her Pledge Ceremony, she is found murdered by her best friend, and the pool of suspects, including a boyfriend, a betrothed, parents, clergy, and more. I think One to Watch was highly entertaining due largely to some over-the-top characters whose status as old-money royalty they cannot give up, even with bankruptcy looming; or whose newer arrival to Britain isn't good enough without family links to the aristocracy. This added a dash of humor, and it was fun to watch serious Kay and her protoge Carys play along with them. The subplot of the vendetta against Kay moves further along, and she forms an alliance with the one person in the force who she feels she can trust- or so she hopes.
Overall very enjoyable with twists I didn't see coming, and it kept me listening, so I highly recommend One to Watch.

One of the best thriller series I have read
A young aristocratic girl is found murdered with a blunt force trauma during a family party in which she was pledging to remain chaste until her marriage to a rich boy. Kay Hunter is assigned to the case, but she will also be dealing with his superior and some strange events that may indicate she could be in danger.
I'm absolutely loving these series. The story kept me hooked from beginning to end, and on the edge of my seat. Where the plot of the last book was a bit less appealing to me, this one got me interested from the beginning. Maybe because I found it easier to empathize with the young girl. Also the multiple twists and the fact that nothing was what it seemed kept the story engaging.
The series arc also evolved in this book, reaching high creepy levels and asking more questions. We know more not only about Kay but also about her colleagues.
I loved Alison Campbell's narration. Her tone kept me glued to my headphones, she beautifully interpreted the characters and gave them distinct voices and styles. Her diction is clear and the audio production was good.
I thoroughly enjoyed the story and I just want more. This is one of the best thriller series I have read in a long time. I can sew it being made into a successful tv show.
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Rachel Amphlett. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
