#Who He Was From #he was from start and I didn t even have to se my Matlock deductive skills yes my mom was a big fan of that show as well as Perry Mason Murder She Wrote etcwhich gave me my mad skills at Clue The main reason I pushed through this was that it was an audio book and the narrator Julie Franklin did a decent job differentiating the characters Listening to audio version during work I know what s going on but don t really have an invested interest in where the story is going or what the heroine is doing Ultimately I sed the book as background noise while at work I still got the gist of the story but I never felt a need to give it my complete attention This was my first book by Katie Fforde and I m afraid it didn t leave a very good impression.
