Publisher's Summary

The deliciously uplifting new novel from the Sunday Times best-selling author of This Could Change Everything and Meet Me at Beachcomber Bay. Not to be missed by listeners of Lucy Diamond and Katie Fforde.   

When Mimi first visits her dad's new home in the Cotswolds, she falls in love with Goosebrook and the people who live there. (Well, maybe not snooty Henrietta, who lets Mimi walk miles in the rain rather than give her a lift.)   

There's Paddy, with his flashing eyes and seductive charm. Friendly and funny Lois makes Mimi laugh. And seriously gorgeous Cal is welcoming and charismatic. Though Mimi loves her city life and her career, she'd be very happy to return to Goosebrook if it means seeing more of him.  

Life is about to take some unexpected and shocking twists and turns. And Mimi's path and Cal's are set to cross again and again - but will it ever be the right time for both of them?

Different narrator required

Terrible narration, very difficult to follow. I believe it spoilt the book. I was constantly turning the volume up and down.

Great book but volume issues

Loved this story and the different voices. What really got on my nerves was the lack of volume control. One moment you couldn’t hear what was being said even with the volume up really loud and the next your ears were getting blasted.

The narrator-awful

Really the narration is terrible. I’ve just started the book and really don’t think I can keep going even though I really enjoy Jill Mansell books.

A must read!

Loved this book. Jill Mansell is the best writer. As always this story was funny, loving and emotional. Just delightful.

Great listen!

Sucked in to the story straight away! Listened everywhere... driving, walking cleaning. The change in voices was fantastic just wish it didn’t end. Will be listening again soon

Absolutely brilliant

I had never tried this author before, although I knew that she was very popular, and I knew that I liked the narrator. Both surpassed themselves. The story is full of fun, interesting characters that seem very real, and although the story is not particularly dramatic, apart from one major event near the beginning, it has all sorts of events and twists and turns to keep it interesting. Very, very high quality chick-lit! As for the narration, perfect! Beautifully read, capturing the subtle humour of the characters, and getting every voice and accent just right. I loved this book.

Fabulous

This was the first audible book I have had and wow it’s been amazing I run a dog walking business and spend most of the day outside what I love about this app is that I can plug myself then walk and listen I’ve giggled out loud I’ve smiled even shed a tear or two the story was read beautifully and got to know the characters very well loved every minute will definitely be carrying on.

Lovely if not predictable

A nice listen where you're willing for the 2 main characters to cop on a bit faster than they do!

Narrater

I simply cannot listen to this voice, I really want to hear the story, but just cannot stand the voice. Maybe I will return it, I wonder if there is a time limit on that? as I buy several books at the time.

Maybe next time....

I wanted to enjoy this book, the story is OK but contrived and the narration is so OTT it gets annoying.

Maybe this time

Nice setting .relaxing read. Not gripping . No suspense but nice characters.The reader should not do the male voices she made them all sound a bit retarded. Enjoyed this listen though.
