I usually enjoy Susan Lewis's writing, but this is the first time I"ve listened to her on audio. The story was bland and uninteresting and predictable never mind the ridiculous GRATING french accent used by the narrator.I have yet to finish this audiobook, I'm sure only complete boredom would have to occur before I go back to it.

I have never reviewed a book before but this book is, quite frankly, unbelievable. The way in which the very recent death of a child is handled is so shallow as to be insulting. It is quite clear the author has absolutely no idea how an event such as this impacts on anyone, let alone a parent. I have close friends who lost a child 4 years ago and their grief is still very apparent. The return to virtually normal life of this family within weeks of their bereavement is almost cruel in its lack of regard for anyone finding themselves in this position. A disgrace.

Would you consider the audio edition of A French Affair to be better than the print version?
I am visually impaired, which is why I use Audible - I can no longer read print. The question is a little insensitive as I would imagine this is why many members use Audible.
What did you like best about this story?
The French setting - I love France and it transported me to many of the places I have visited.
What about Karen Cass’s performance did you like?
Everything - her French was really good and she read it with passion and empathy. A really good performance.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Nothing that particularly stood out.
Any additional comments?
This is a little different, and somewhat raunchier that Susan Lewis's usualy style. The description of the setting was wonderful and trnsported me there. I think the previous review/comment was somewhat harsh. After all, this was a bit of a "who dun it" story with a mother desparate to find aunswers. I did guess fairly early on one of the factors revealed towards the end, but wont divulge here in case it spoils it for future readers.
