Sink into the romance and sparkle of snowy London, in this charming début novel. For the past two years, Evie has lived an invisible life in London. Her neighbours think she's just moved in, and even Evie's manager at work can't remember her name. But all that is about to change ...this Christmas has brought a flurry of snow and unimaginable possibilities into town. And when an accidental encounter with the handsome, enigmatic Joel gives her the chance of a whole new identity, she takes it.
I really enjoyed this , light listening and feel good factor , would be wonderful to read in the festive season with snow on the ground
Would you listen to Miracle on Regent Street again? Why?
I would - but from where I sit, probably not until next Christmas. It's a seasonal thing!
What other book might you compare Miracle on Regent Street to, and why?
Nothing specific - though it's an almost-fairy-tale-anchored-firmly-in-reality sort of book. Perhaps it wasn't a stretch to work out where it was going, but enjoyable finding out how it got there.
Have you listened to any of Penelope Rawlins’s other performances? How does this one compare?
She's a pro - just seems to hit the right note and let's the writer do the work.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Not particularly, but it was a sweet, Christmassy story, entirely appropriate for the time I listened to it.
Any additional comments?
Descriptions of fashion can be risky - one person's 'beautiful' is another's 'euugh!' - and date a title very quickly, but I think the author managed to pull it off in this case.
Where does Miracle on Regent Street rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This book was a very easy listen, predictable in some places but a very sweet story - I wish I'd listen to it closer to Christmas! I wouldn't say it was a book that would stay with me forever but it was definitely a pleasant listen and and i would recommend it to any chick flick lovers.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Evie - she's naive and kindhearted and a little bit of a doormat and i enjoyed following her journey to her happy ending.
A lovely book, great story, the american accent a bit funny but really enjoyed it.
This was a nice wee story about a stock room girl, pretending to be someone she's not so she can grab the guy. It did get a bit annoying after a while as everybody was lying about everything and you knew it was going to end up hurting them in the end.
