Steaming and frothy......the perfect novel to listen to while you stretch out on a squashy sofa in a corner of your favourite coffee shop nursing a long coffee and maybe something chocolate and indulgent. Cappuccinos weaves together the stories of 6 people whose lives are all touched by an upmarket bistro called Cappuccinos.
It's at the heart of a property empire run by attractive, ruthless Vincent. So far he hasn't put a foot wrong in business or in love, but is that all about to change? Has he met his match in resourceful, sexy Georgina? Diana Bradley combines raunchy romance with a tender love story and a tale of hope in this well crafted novel that's guaranteed to keep you listening for hours.

I enjoy stories with an array of characters who lives interweave so this was a good choice for me.
It didn't have any great depth but that's fine when listening in the car!
I wasn't keen on the choice of narrator but that wasn't too distracting.
As a coffee drinker you will be longing for a cup after you start listening to Cappuccinos. Interesting characters and a big mix of ages from teens to 70's. From rich to poor, from happy to sad. Good story and really up to date with living conditions and greed in today's age. Not in a nasty way. This is a good listen whilst ironing or driving. I love Julia Franklin she has so many character voices so you know who is talking, some readers are so flat you keep wondering who has said what. Her intonation is clear and precise and a joy to listen to. I highly recommend this book and the reader.
