Publisher's Summary

It Seemed like a Good Idea at the Time, from best-selling author Kylie Scott, is a brand-new audiobook that will have listeners hooked.

Returning home for her father’s wedding was never going to be easy for Adele. If being sent away at 18 hadn’t been bad enough, the mess she left behind when she made a pass at her dad’s business partner sure was. 

Fifteen years older than her, Pete had been her crush for as long as she could remember. But she’d misread the situation - confusing friendliness for undying love. Awkward. Add her father to the misunderstanding, and Pete had been left with a broken nose and a business on the edge of ruin. The man had to be just as glad as everyone else when she left town. 

Seven years on, things are different. Adele is no longer a kid, but a fully grown adult more than capable of getting through the wedding and being polite. But all it takes is seeing him again to bring back all those old feelings. 

Sometimes first loves are the truest.

Funny script and well narrated

Not often I read a book that both entertains with the way it is written and so well narrated. Andi Arndt is a fabulous narrator and this book particularly suits her.
Overall a most enjoyable distraction

Sometimes good ideas aren’t the best ideas

This was a really sweet, slow burning love story. I bought this book based on the blurb provided, and because I love Andi’s narration. Imagine my delight, and horror, to slowly find out that the story was set in my home town and the surrounding towns that I now live in. So excited to listen to this, reliving my summer night out in Palmwoods, the smells, the stars, the heat. My horror was listening to an American narrator of an Australian story. It kind of spoiled the story for me. I know not every listener will be an Aussie, but it just left me a little sad, and that’s why I wasn’t fully committed to a 5 star review for performance. Andi was awesome & voiced Adele’s wit & sarcasm so well, she just didn’t have the right heritage.
I look forward to more of Kylie’s books, but I might read them instead of listening.

Enjoyed listening to this. Probably not one that will stick with me in my memory, but worth a credit.
