Reasonable Doubts is my favourite Kyra Lennon book to date.
I've had the paperback for a few weeks and let me tell you I was sitting on a treat. I actually listened to this book, rather than read it. My first audiobook and it totally added to the experience.

Darcy wants to right a wrong. Her best friend is in jail for a crime he didn't commit. She's determined to find a way to get him out. All she has to do is work out how the cops got the wrong man. Her plan isn't stellar but it's worth a shot.

I went in blind and I wasn't prepared for this storyline. This is a fast paced story about Darcy and the mission she undertakes to prove that her best friend is innocent of his wife's murder.
I loved the building relationship with Darcy and Finn and there were lots of moments I didn't see coming. I'm hoping this isn't the last I see of these charaters

With any Kyra Lennon books you just know that you're going to get a well written story. This was no different. In fact, I'd go as far as saying this has been her best book to date. I loved the story, I loved the characters. I loved it all.
It is a short book, and I'm not a huge novella fan, but this was perfect! The length was exactly right for the story. There isn't one thing I could say I didn't like, or I would have changed.

Well done, Kyra!

OMG - where do I begin with this review?! Imagine being in the care system from a very young age and being pushed from pillar to post to the extent that you feel unwanted and unloved...until you meet someone who you learn to trust and love and that person becomes your best friend. Then imagine having that person ripped away from you and thrown into prison when they are wrongly accused of the murder of their wife. Would you walk away or would you do

Have no doubt this book will pull you in !! Gripping and intense, I couldn't put it down. An unexpected hero, twists and turns, tears and smiles(at times even as I'm still trying to wipe the tears away!) - this had them all. Matteo Torres was convicted or murdering his wife but best friend Darcy vows to prove his innocence and in doing so is prepared to put her life on the line.. the friendship is clear from the start and the first chapter had me hooked, I wanted to know more, so many questions ...more

This for me was such a gripping and intense action packed story, it was totally nothing like I'd expect to find in a novella of this size.

The story is about Darcy Ryan a stubborn hothead with a dark backstory of her own who is trying to find proof that her close and only friend Matteo Torres is innocent of murdering his wife and to get him freed from prison. She decides to try and seduce Fin Drake a cop who was part of the team who helped to convict Matteo of the crime as she has no other

Darcy has had a messed up start to life, but the one person who has seen her through the majority of it, is best friend Matteo. So when he's incarcerated for a crime everyone thinks he's guilty of, she knows she has to be the one to prove his innocence...

Each tick was another second Matteo was behind bars for no reason. Each minute was another sixty seconds he sat inside a cold, empty cell. Each hour was another sixty minutes of his life wasted.

But accepting or even asking for help, is

This is the first book I've read by Kyra Lennon. The blurb really drew me in and I'm glad it did. I loved the characters and the whole story. It's very fast paced but it works for this story. Darcy and Finn both have a lot of pain in their past which affects their relationships in the present. They're kind of thrown together but their relationship just works. The ending is something I didn't really see coming. I would definitely read more books by this author. ...more

Darcy Ryan is out to prove her best friend Matteo didn't kill his wife. She's willing to risk everything, and does so by trying to seduce a detective for information. Yet Darcy doesn't expect to fall for Finn Drake. He isn't the bad cop she thought he was, but she doesn't know who to trust. She started out playing a game with him, could he be playing one with her?

A wonderfully suspenseful and fast-paced romantic thriller. Darcy might have some trouble trusting people, but once they earn it, she'

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I thought that the story itself was different to most other crime books which meant that it was kept intriguing and interesting throughout. The main character Darcy was likeable, feisty, loyal and willing to take risks for her friend, her family. Drake came across exactly how he was written, self assured but with a hidden depth that was a compelling reveal to his character. All in all this was a quick easy read that held my interest. Would highly recommend it to o ...more

I've said it before and I'll say it again - novellas can be tricky things to get right.  It can be difficult to condense all the necessary details and still allow the story to flow properly, for the character connections to develop organically.

However, I think that the author has done a decent job with this one.  Told in dual POV, the back story is released in increments without being intrusive.  The character connection is tangible and the narrative is fast paced and engaging.

An enjoyable, quic

I enjoyed reading this book. I was surprised by the turn of events in what happened in the book. I feel like the author could have maybe wrote the book a little bit longer and taken Darcy and Finn's story a little bit further. I know that the whole story was about Darcy getting Matteo out of Jail and doing whatever it took and in end falling for Finn. But I feel afterwards they could have gone alittle bit more into what happens for her and Finn possibly. Overall I really enjoyed the story. ...more

This is the first book of this author that I have read and I wasn't disappointed. This story had me gripped from the start. It was intense and action packed, fast paced and the story just flowed. I loved the characters and I felt their chemistry. There are a few twists and turns to this plot which I never saw coming and I never k ew what was coming next. I cant wait to read more from this author. ...more

Darcy and Finn.

Darcy, a woman on a mission for justice and boy does she get it with help from a dishy detective, Finn.

This book is fast paced, no skirting around, just bam and i loved it. It also reeks of loyalty and bonds that will never break and stuff that will blow your mind. It had everything i love in a read. The storyline was incredible.

Truly an amazing read!

This is the first time I have read anything by Kyra Lennon. I loved it! The plot was well thought out and the characters were believable. I thought the way Darcy and Drake met was great. I loved the twists and turns that happens throughout the book. I was hooked from the beginning and could not put it down. I can't wait to read more of her books. ...more

This story is a fast paced, action packed read with plot twist and turns you don’t see coming. It is written in the POV of both the male (Finn Drake) and female (Darcy Ryan) characters so you are in both their heads. I loved the chemistry of the main characters from the very beginning. This was the first I’ve read of this author, but I’ll most definitely be reading more from her.

I went in to this book not knowing what it was about and it was amazing.
thecstiryoine is fast-paced, Darcy is going to do whatever it takes to get her best friend out of jail, even if it means seducing a bent cop...
Darcy and Finn quickly realise they both have issues but decide to give it a go when they realise life is short and anything can happen

First time read of this author. What a great start too. Loved the story line and the characters, a quick and easy read. I would of liked a bit more to the story, so much could of been done with it, but having said that, that's where it stood out too. Definitely going to read more from Kyra. ...more

Reasonable Doubts started a but slow but quickly picked up pace and kept me freaking hooked until the very end.

What can I say about Reasonable Doubts that won't spoil your enjoyment of finding things out in your own time? That's a hard one. There are so many things I *could* say, because I really need someone to talk to about how awesome this story is. I got to BETA read this story and was blown away. In short, it's incredible.

Darcy is the only one that believes her best friend, Matteo, innocent in the murder of the woman he loved more than life itself. She'll stop at nothing to see him walk out of pris

A murder mystery. I really enjoyed it and was filled with anticipation as the plot progressed, I wanted to know who had framed Darcy's best friend as much as she did.

Matteo Torres was convicted or murdering his wife, he's innocent but all the evidence is pointed to the scorned husband and his best friend Darcy vows to prove his innocence and in doing so is prepared to put her life on the line by trying to get close to one of the investigators on the case who she thinks is corrupt and had a hand

I am an avid audiobook reader, listening to hundreds of books a year, so I am critical of narrators since they can make or break when a great book goes to audio. I prefer books with multiple narrators, so there is less chance of character voice confusion, and voices that are 'easy on the ears'. The narrators in this book has a great voice for male characters, but I did not care for the female one. It just wasn't 'female enough' for me. That said, his voice overall was very easy on the ears and t ...more

Fast paced story of a best friend attempting to right a wrong. Not my favourite Kyra Lennon book but worth a read all the same!

The twists and turns kept me interested and ensured that I finished to find out what happened!
