Very similar to 14, except a bit better flow. Good characters, good story, satisfying. If you like Lovecraftian horror, you will like the slow creep of dread. Narrator is awesome!
One of the only things I dislike about the author (in 14 too) is the random description of when some women have their "t*ts or a$$ out/showing". Not only are none of the men described like this, but it always seems bizarrely placed, like just shoehorned into the story and adds literally nothing to it. Luckily it doesn't happen very often, so it doesn't take too much away from the story.

Loved It!

Really intriguing story. Loved the younger portrayal of Holmes, with her very relatable struggles and wonderful mind. She is a little more "human" than OG Sherlock with her relationships - or perhaps they're just described in more detail.

Kate Reading does a lovely job with narration, characterisation and building tension - although her British accent is a little hit and miss. This may also be because I have listened to The Stormlight Archive recently (which she also narrates wonderfully in non-british) and the light British accent isn't enough to cover her (excellent) speech patterns in my brain.
Highly recommend to anyone looking for a cosy British mystery and I'm downloading the next one as we speak!

Narration gets better, great story

Loved the book, gripping and complex and wonderful
couldn't stand the narrator at first but it got better (or I got used to it) and I found it enjoyable by the end. she does capture the spirit of the main character, and prononciation of all the Polish words and names is nice to hear
satisfying ending

Incredible

I like this series a lot, I hope that the remaining books get released as audiobooks in the future.
I love the Welsh setting. I would love to visit Wales one day, and it makes me want to visit all the more (even despise the apparent hatred of tourists haha!)

Evan is a great character, although his problems with the women in his life are frustrating, because they are all his fault! Just communicate , you dope! I also wish that it wasn't constantly pointed out how Betsy's cleavage draws the eyes of every man in the room, but oh well.

Great for an armchair mystery

Continues to be great

Third book is still excellent in series. Harder mystery to solve this time, didn't get it until the last two chapters. A lot more fun and romantic interactions with Darcy and Georgie, and a new side to Figg.
lovely and looking forward to the next one!!

This book is just like being put in jolly old England in an idyllic countryside. I love Midsomer Murders and this feels just like it.
voice acting is amazing!! perfectly portrays the various voices of the village.
Definitely listening to the sequels and hope for many more!!!

"I WILL NOT BE USED!!" dude...calm down....
