    "Really enjoyed this book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Summer Daydreams to be better than the print version?

    The audio edition was much better for me as I travel a lot with work and helps pass the time on the motorway. Also Jane Collingwood is great bringing the characters to life with the different voices.


    What other book might you compare Summer Daydreams to, and why?

    Reminded me of The Girl's Guide to Homemaking by Amy Bratley


    Which character – as performed by Jane Collingwood – was your favourite?

    Nell was my favourite character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely would happily have sat and listened to this book in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Was sorry when it ended

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

    There was so many twists and turns in the book and there didn't need to be, which to be honest were a bit predictable. I also felt the writing lacked description, there were a number of times where a scene that could have been elaborated on perhaps in place of the never ending dramas.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Carole Matthews again?

    I won't to rule it out, but it won't be my first choice.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jane Collingwood’s performances?

    Not sure, I found her voice a little grating at times


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Summer Daydreams?

    There are too many to choose from...

    "Great story"

    I really enjoyed this book. It was well written and I like the main character Nell. She was inspirational. A good story and listened to it over a couple of days on holiday.

    "Escape, Relax & Laugh Out Loud"

    This is light hearted, fun and refreshing. The story line is very simple, easy to read, even the books 4 year old daughter makes you giggle, My husband even admitted he couldnt help but listen and laugh when I had it on loud speaker. It also has a good moral behind the story.

    Would reccomend for light read , on the beach or holidays or even just an escape and relax time. Other similar stlye books Ive read are the Shopaholics series by Sophie Kinsella.
