Publisher's Summary

PLAY

Andrew, the manager of Shanamore Cottages, watches his only guest via a hidden camera in her room. One night the unthinkable happens: a shadowy figure emerges on-screen, kills her, and destroys the camera. But who is the murderer? How did they know about the camera? And how will Andrew live with himself?

PAUSE

Natalie wishes she'd stayed at home as soon as she arrives in the wintry isolation of Shanamore. There's something creepy about the manager. She wants to leave, but she can't - not until she's found what she's looking for....

REWIND

Psycho meets Fatal Attraction in this explosive story about a murder caught on camera. You've already missed the start. To get the full picture you must rewind the tape and play it through to the end, no matter how shocking....

Little hard to follow

Good story but it took a while to figure out the pattern of rewind, fast forward. I liked the reader’s voice except when she dropped it so quietly to be a whisper of a voice inside a character’s head. Turn up the volume to hear the words, then, suddenly her full voice returns painfully loud. Interesting characters and interplay.

Rewind

Had a hard time listening to the narrator's "sing song" intonation. Story was good but found the fast forward, pause, rewind etc distracting and not useful.

This is getting a bit stale....

I’ve now read five books by this author. She uses the same tired plot device in EVERY SINGLE ONE. I keep thinking she might quit trying to be cleverly confusing with the back and forth (with different versions of same), but it must be that she doesn’t trust herself to as a writer to attempt something new. Her basic ideas are good, which is why I’ve kept trying. The narrator does a great job, so it’s fairly pleasant to listen while working. However, it becomes aggravating to realize it takes fully 75% of her books to get to the interesting stuff.

Don’t waste your time after reading one of her books because now you’ve read them all.

it was ok.

The rewind, play, stop thing was so very pointless and annoying. The story was ok if you were able to follow it.
it was not at all shocking or twisty.
her other books are WAY better. I promise.

B+ for this author

This was well read, kept me interested, but I feel that it stopped suddenly at the end. The Rewind "xx seconds" comments didn't seem to connect or I didnt catch on.

Wish I could rewind and not purchase this book

I am really tired of these books that keep jumping back and forth in time, repeating the same scenes from different characters' viewpoints. It is gimmicky, distracting, and often confusing. I don't understand why authors are so in love with this plot device. In this case, it acts to cover up weak plots and a lack of character development. The story is very predictable despite the smoke and mirrors. And the pause, play, rewind, fast forward comments...I don't see the point of it, adds nothing to the story.

Favorite author/ narrator combo

I was super excited to delve into another mystery with my favorite author/narrator, but I just didn’t find this book as good as the author’s others. I’m still looking forward to her next release.

Really good just one small irritation

I really enjoyed the story and the characters. the narration was really well done. the part that drove me crazy was the bizarre jumping back and forth by minutes and seconds when in fact we were jumping back and forth by weeks or days. I just found it irritating and distracting and learn to ignore it.

The Narrator

The synopsis sounded promising but the narrator....she was reading the book to us with an Irish accent ... would have been better with the different characters having different voices

Yup. It’s your basic, vanilla, white girl mystery

I guess it’s fine if you’re just looking to pass the time for a couple afternoons. It definitely doesn’t require any “heavy lifting”. Perhaps a 14 year old girl might really like it…?

Also, all of the ‘super quirky, and totally original’ (🙄🤦🏻‍♀️) chapter headers, (read: rewind 2 minutes, fast forward 30 seconds, pause 10 seconds etc etc) that are meant to inform us of that chapter’s place in time, such as past or present, are utterly useless at best. And unnecessarily confusing at worst. Are we supposed to know how far back in real time 30 seconds is? Or 2 minutes? Why not just say ‘then’, or ‘now’. Or ‘past’ and ‘present’. Are they meant to be whimsical? Have some sort of significance? Perhaps a hidden meaning?
Nah…It’s more likely the author thought she was being witty, charming, and innovative. It’s a fail.
The last half of the book is so predictable, you don’t even have to finish it.
If you’re looking for an intellectual challenge with this one, you’ll be incredibly disappointed.
I cannot recommend this book. Unless of course you’re a 14 year old girl.
