STAR RATINGS GUIDE

Not Her Best, But…

THE BIRDICT

❤️️ Exciting times. Audible now includes some books as part of membership. This was an obvious first pick, being by KL Slater.

💜 The premise was a bit off piste - woman marries her son’s murderer. But I was game. I tried to be anyway. I spent much of the time feeling uncomfortable and bewildered at the characters and their choices.

💚 The story was cleverly plotted, punctuated with drama and had me attempting to decipher everyone’s intentions and agendas. Ultimately though, the stakes weren’t high enough and the twists not… twisty.

SQUAWKING THE TALK

🎧 Lucy Price-Lewis demonstrated extraordinary versatility in her narration. Accents, tones, moods, she switched between them with ease. She was particularly good at performing the male roles.

The Marriage

THE BLURB

Ten years ago he killed my son. Today I married him.

Ten years ago my darling son Jesse was murdered and our perfect family was destroyed. My strong, handsome boy, so full of life, became a memory, a photo I carried with me everywhere.

But today I’m finally close to finding happiness again. My ash-blonde hair has been curled into ringlets. Carefully placed white flowers frame my delicate features. The small, drab chapel has been prettied up with white satin, and there are tiny red hearts scattered on the small table where I will soon sign the register with my new husband.

The man who killed my son.

My friends and family can’t understand it. My neighbours whisper in the street whenever I walk past. How can I love a man like Tom?

They don’t really know me at all....
