Publisher's Summary

When are the boundaries of friendship pushed too far, and when is it time to stop flying over oceans for someone who wouldn't jump over a puddle for you? There comes a time when Hilary Hammond has to make that call.

Hilary and Colette O'Mahony have been friends since childhood. But when irrepressible Jonathan Harpur breezes into Hilary's life and goes into business with her, Colette is not best pleased.

After their first encounter, Colette thinks he's a "pushy upstart" while he thinks she's "a snobby little diva". And so the battle lines are drawn, and Hilary is bang in the middle.

But as the years roll by and each of them is faced with difficult times and tough decisions, one thing is clear...to have a friend you must be a friend.

And that's when Hilary discovers that sometimes your best friend can be your greatest enemy....

    "Excellent storyline"

    Loved the story but I felt it was spoiled by the reader. I love Patricia Scanlan's books so it wouldn't put me off another one

    Story
    "Dreadful narration."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I absolutely love Patricia Scanlan, one of my favourite authors but I could continue listening to this one. Loads of mispronunciations and monotonous.


    Has A Time for Friends put you off other books in this genre?

    No, not at all, just the narrator.


    What didn’t you like about Grainne Gillis’s performance?

    As above.

    "Narrator destroys this book"

    I only purchased this book yesterday and immediately started to listen to it. However the narrater sounds so full on. She barely pauses for a breath. I managed to listen for an hour but gave up. I usually love Patricia Scanlan's books but unable to read this one it is not a pleasant read because of the narration. I cannot speak for the story as I have not completed or intend to complete this book. Because Patricia Scanlan is one of my favourite authors I will buy a hard copy of this book.
    I cannot understand why authors do not stick with a fabulous narrator when they have them read their previous books it happens so often with Audible and is very disappointing.
