Review: Never Greener by Ruth Jones

Never Greener by Ruth Jones. Audiobook narrated by Sharon Small. I’ve discovered that when it comes to audiobooks I prefer to listen to two types; a good old crime / murder mystery that keeps you guessing or a character-led read that feels like I’m talking to a friend about their latest news.
