Publisher's Summary

Beth Reynolds loved growing up close to Eleanor's Emporium – a bric-a-brac shop full of wonders on Lavender Bay. Devastated to learn that Eleanor has died, she returns home from London immediately and is shocked to discover that the elderly lady has left the shop to her!

Vowing to restore it to its former glory, she only intends to stay until the end of the season. Although the longer she spends in the colourful seaside town, the more she falls back in love with everything she left behind... and quite possibly, with her best friend Eliza's older brother, local chef Sam Barnes!

Why didn't she notice he was quite this gorgeous before? And will their spring fling be enough to convince her to stay?

Don't miss Spring at Lavender Bay, the first book in the enchanting Lavender Bay trilogy! Perfect for fans of Trisha Ashley, Rachael Lucas and Hilary Boyd.

smiley face story

a lovely put a smile on your face story. brilliant narrator holds you into the story rght to the very end. my only criticism would be the ending needs dragging out a bit longer ,rather than the gone in a flash ending. but well worth listening to

Just very basic and shallow

I didn’t hate it I guess, it’s easy to listen to. It just doesn’t really have any charm or anything interesting about it. The characters were very 2D feeling. The girls love wine and watching Netflix then there’s the strong, French speaking, chef love interest, just dull... Also the narrator was a bit wooden

A gentle, predictable listen

I enjoyed the story, it wasn't deep but it was enjoyable. The only negative was the West Country accent of the narrator, it made me cringe from start to end.

Disappointing

I am afraid a boring read. Story weak and narrator voice was hard to listen too.

Sweet but predictable

I found this a sweet story but no interesting surprises very predictable.
The narrator didn’t seem to be consistent with her accents of different characters.
Sam the lead was British one minute then Northen the next and his sister Eliza who was obviously not pure British had a very posh accent compared to the parents.
Bit annoying and wouid be interested to see where they all end up
