APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Alice Clark-Pratt’s The Flower Girls is one of the most compellingly dark thrillers we’d read in a while—and the audiobook only ratchets up the tension. Read in a chillingly beautiful, coiled fashion by Emilia Fox, we couldn’t bear to hit pause before its unforgettable climax. It centres around the legacy of a most awful case—a toddler being led away from a playground by a pair of teenage sisters who would become the titular national monsters. Nearly two decades later, one sister remains in prison but another is free under a new identify when a five-year-old goes missing from a hotel she’s staying in. The truth, as with most things in this shocking thriller, is tough to wrap your head around.

I did enjoy this.... however the twist was obvious from the start which was a shame.
A Good Book
I always find audiobooks from reviews on the hard copies as there seems to be more around. I loved this book, espeically with the amount of twists and turns towards the end.
I managed over 3 hours into this book but finally decided to give up. The many reviews online are very good, so I'm probably in a minority, but I found the writing lacked tension and the book dragged - too much descriptive writing about the characters' emotions, rather than allowing the reader/listener simply to develop understanding and empathy by him/herself. I'm afraid I also found the narration irritating - normal reading voice fine, but less successful in giving the individual characters different voices. Not for me, and I doubt I'll try another book by this author.
