We are quickly drawn in, wondering how and why she's being bombarded by such unexpected events, but Barry's skill at grabbing us by the hand and demanding we fly along with her leading lady keeps us on our toes, surprised and swept up in the unfolding mystery. You won't be able to put it down until you breathlessly learn the "who, what and why" of the dark and dangerous machinations that upend Josie's heretofore easy-going life.
It’s well written with interesting characters and fast paced plot. Looking forward to more.
The author, E.L. Barry writes a suspense filled novel. The storyline is strong and has several plot twists. The characters are well developed, and the dialog is authentic moving the story forward. While the story is good and solidly written, it does seem a bit rushed at times. The plot twists are well done. Kim’s presence in the story is weakish, I would have liked her to be more involved.
The narrator, Emma Barry delivers a clear and strong performance. She speaks clearly and with the appropriate tone according to the situation and characters involved.
If you enjoy mysteries, this is a good book to hear as it has suspense, interesting characters, and an unexpected twist.
There were no issues with the quality or production of this audiobook, it was clear and well produced.

Josie has a rather privileged life living rent-free in the flat her late mother left for her (although despite her good fortune – regarding the flat, not losing her mother - she seems terrible with money). She has a good job, friendly work colleagues, Kim and Gareth, and doesn’t lack for male attention. Nicholas is his name, but even her relationship with him is full of questions.
Things really start to kick off when Josie, Kim and Gareth go to a conference and someone in the hotel is attacked.
There are some nice messages in this book about improving yourself and how you live and work and I found the details of the Money Characters at the back very interesting. There’s also a Q&A with Josie Jackson which leads well into the next book.
This is a novel for young adults (YA) which I’m not but I enjoyed the story and will be keen to see what’s next for Josie.
Deliberately "Anytown", you can imagine these characters sitting at the next table in the coffee shop you use, or in the restaurant you frequent, which is something I personally enjoy. In fact, the characters and settings are the best part of the book. Josie Jackson is loveable and immediately endearing and I particularly enjoyed working out the motives of the mysterious Nicholas and I am sure other readers will too. Thoroughly recommended for fans of easy reading and engaging characters.
