Read this book almost to the end but gave up during the last chapter. Then I listened to Mary's very interesting interview on the Fancy Free podcast where near the end she talks about being in the top one percent of Mensa scorers. I really do not know what to think about this intriguing unbelievable story. I wondered why Mary doesn't have a Scottish accent.

Captivating but troubling story

Tedious, melodramatic and hard to listen to. Sentences trailed off into lower tones and I kept having to rewind and still didnt know what was said . Harsh unclear accent ..and I grew up in the UK.

Unbelievable story

Enjoyed this book..For the most part realistic but a bit overdescriptive at times. Not sure about that dream sequence..I guess that is Holywood

Captivating story that is believable and unbelievable all at the same time. Bring on the next book Mr Browder.

Captivating story but a bit too drawn out, dramatic and syrupy for me. The book is long but fills in the long hours during the Covid19 pandemic. Lots of moral contradiction among the players. And seriously nobody twigged to the grandmother's plan? It was pretty obvious, or maybe just the grandmother in me saw right through it.

Shocking story but not surprising

Good binge read. I like when authors do a good job of reading their own books.

Gave up pretty early in book

Too much blah blah ..I don't care what you had for dinner or flowery descriptions of your surroundings That's why I don't read fiction.

Interesting if you are unfamiliar with story

Distracting narration in English accent doesn't connect with the narrative. Not very engaging as plot divulged in the introduction .I kept rewinding as I would drift off. Flat and boring with an abrupt ending.
