Diana is brilliant at accents, she can literally do any accent you throw her way. This is why I hired her to do my first audiobook (Thwarted Queen) and then we won an IPPY Gold Medal for Audiobook!! - Cynthia Sally Haggard

"What a talent Di Croft is! She gives every project her all and brought life to everyone of my characters (including those with unusual accents) in the DI Natalie Ward series. She is brilliant to work with - dynamic and extremely dilligent. I highly recommend Di to narrate your books. You will be delighted with the result." -- Carol Wyer #1 Bestselling Author
Lilian Oake - The Dragon Cager
“"It was a pleasure to work with Di who was professional, flexible, and fun! I received nothing but positive reviews on my book because of how she captured the story. Di has an amazing ability to change accents fluidly without pulling the reader out of the story. She has brought my story to life even more than I thought possible and I am forever grateful!" - Lillian Oake. The Dragon Cager.”
The performance from the reader was magnificent. The way she was able to perform the different accents was flawless.
I will never look on the elderly the same way again. - Florrie O'Mahony. My Name is Eva
Diana Croft the narrator made this book come to life she was purely sublime , I have also read the child Taker and Criminal insane by the same author , really good books HOWEVER if it was not for Diana Croft the books would not have been brilliant to listen to. This book was a gritty impossible to stop listening to gripping thriller its a must read or listen. I am now searching for other books narrated by Diana Croft because it's her who is the difference between mediocre and truly amazeballs listen . If you don't believe me listen to the book yourself. - Garry from Eyemouth. Brick
I’ve listened to most of Diana Croft’s audiobooks at this point because it’s a pretty safe bet I’ll enjoy the book, but I would venture that this is the best book she’s ever done. She brings the fantastic characters to life, each one with their own distinctive personality and voice, especially Jizzimus the imp.
I rarely relisten to audiobooks but I can happily play this one on repeat! - N Ireland. A Spell in the Country
