Publisher's Summary

"So I thought I might take up paragliding. You know, buy one on eBay and just jump off the cliff one morning." 

Emily Willows is middle-aged, widowed, wealthy, and bored. When she makes those flippant remarks to her son over coffee one Friday, she has no inkling that within a few hours she will be facing the most terrifying situation of her life. Nor could she have guessed that she will be confronting it with the enigmatic young woman who moved in next door a few months ago and who has hardly spoken a word to her since. And neither of them has realized yet that after this meeting, their lives will never be the same again.

Great story marred by narrator...

This narrator nearly made me leave the story unfinished. But Peter Grainger's story telling was compelling enough for me to persevere. I find the narration rushed and monotone. The voice pitch grates on my ears. Perhaps Gildart Jackson's narrations of Grainger's other books spoiled me, as it matched the content and writing type of Peter's books much more closely. The only way I could listen to this story was because I slowed down the narration slightly.

Great intro to another Peter Grainger world!

When I first tried this listen out I found the narrator put me off. But I knew there would be a great story here so I tried again and slowed the pace to 85% speed and I’m so glad I did! More great characters and pacing. Looking forward to more adventures with Willow and Lane. Thank you Peter!

My only complaint…too short

Had high expectations of this book. I am a huge fan of DCI Smith. This is quite different but I like the characters, and enjoy it tremendously.

Short, but very good!

Another great series start by Peter Grainger. Willows & Lane join the illustrious company of the characters in Kings Lake of DC Smith, Freeman, Waters et al. This story is not set at Kings Lake.

The pace of this first tale is non-stop and held my attention throughout. I can’t wait to continue enjoying this and the other two series.

Lane is an enjoyable and recommendable story!

Great story!

I really enjoyed the feel good way the story progresses and the characters develop in the timeline. Lots of sarcastic humour of course and a great ending
Looking forward to more

My first time read of this author

I thoroughly enjoyed volume one and coming back for more. One comment I’d like to mention is the reader seems to have a one monotone voice which personally I found to be a bit uninspiring.

Good story

The narration was very poor, sorry to say. It was flat and without inflection. Every sentence was read exactly the same in a very disinterested way.

Fast moving plot

I thought this was an entertaining audiobook. Mrs Willows’ character well developed and voiced. I will listen to the others in the short series.
