Publisher's Summary

When time out becomes the time of your life.

The brand new audiobook from best seller Carole Matthews.

Jodie Jackson is all at sea, in every sense. 

On a ferry bound for the Isle of Wight, she's leaving her London life, her career and her husband behind. She'd like a chance to turn back the clocks, but she'll settle for some peace and quiet on her brother Bill's beautifully renovated houseboat, Sunny Days.  

But from the moment Jodie steps aboard her new home, it's clear she'll struggle to keep herself to herself. If it isn't Marilyn, who cleans for Bill and is under strict instructions to look after Jodie, then it's Ned, the noisy sculptor on the next-door houseboat. Ned's wood carving is hard on the ears, but it's made up for by the fact that he's rather easy on the eyes.

Bustled out of the boat by Marilyn and encouraged to explore with Ned, Jodie soon delights in her newfound freedom. But out of mind isn't out of sight, and when her old life comes knocking, Jodie is forced to face reality. Will she answer the call or choose a life filled with sunny days and sea breezes?

Not boring

Just couldn’t get into it at all, storyline was a bit predictable. I had to slow the narration down to 0.9 at times.

Good Ad for the Isle of Wight!

Quite a good story but not one of Carole Matthews’ best, a bit too predictable and the narration a bit too hearty. Quite enjoyed it. Made me keen to see the Isle of Wight!

Pleasant book

This was an ok book. Overall I enjoyed it, although more than once I thought to return it. However, I am glad I stuck with it. I’m not a fan of ‘I’ve a secret I’m not telling but will just drop hints’ in general, ana more than one cringy moments, but overall a pleasant listen on my evening walk.

Fantastic Read

This was a fabulous book, I almost felt i could just jump in and be part of this heart warming story, the characters felt like friends, and the music festival was described so well made me feel I was there, great read, funny, romantic, with some unexpected twists and a wonderful story.
