Reviews of Yule Island

This story has three different points of view, and I’m not always keen on multiples perspectives. It is gruesome and rather unbelievable. It gets off to a slow start and I didn’t find the conclusion very satisfactory because it’s all really rather involved. Nevertheless, I will listen to more of these, because I understand it’s the first in a series. The author is apparently known as the queen of French Noir and I will listen to the other book of hers that’s on here. Definitely a good yarn.
