Publisher's Summary

Being married to a celebrity isn't all it's cracked up to be, especially when that celebrity has a very public affair with his co-star....

Alice McBride is determined that the one thing she won't lose in her marriage breakup is Borne Manor, her beloved home, but she gets more than she bargained for when she rents it out for the summer and a sexy cowboy comes to stay.

Country music star Robinson Duff has had his own share of heartbreak and needs somewhere quiet to hide out for the summer. Neither Alice nor Robinson are in any position for romance; the timing is terrible and they're both rebounding like out of control frisbees.

Can a holiday romance help mend their broken hearts. Or will it just make things even worse when the long hot summer comes to its inevitable end?

As the Title suggests A summer romance tale..

This was a very pleasant up lifting and at times funny story of a unexpected summer romance.
I totally enjoyed listening to it while i drove to & from work, i would recommend it to others for light reading .
i also felt it was very well narrated.

Blissfully taken to another place

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the characters were relatable and I was hooked from the start.

Just the right amount of drama and balance of tension and despair

Will look out for more like it

Its rather dull

I found it just too formulaic. I felt I had read it all before it was predictable.

FAB book & was sad when it came to the end!

Initially I didn’t like the voice of the narrator but I quickly got used to it and couldn’t stop listening to it. Great escapism and entertaining. Easy to become fond of the characters too. Will definitely seek out more books from Kat French- and will probably listen to the story again. May even buy the hard copy to read!!

brilliant

Great narrative, loved the accents!
Brilliant story, from an old porn star, wigs, a talking bird, cow boy singer, nutty ex's and a bit of sunshine and romance. what more could you ask for? loved it, highly recommended
