Publisher's Summary

Imogen and her friends Meredith and Nicola have had their fill of budget holidays. So when Meredith wins a VIP holiday at Barcelona's hippest new hotel, they plan to sip champagne with the jet set and party. But when the worst crisis of her working life erupts, Imogen has to juggle her BlackBerry with a Manhattan. Between a robbery and an encounter on a nudist beach, the friends stumble from one disaster to the next.

    "Laugh Out Loud"

    Really, really enjoyed this book. Very funny. There was a hint of slapstick comedy about the story that I loved. There is a sadness too that was beautifully explored. The narration was perfect. I did find myself laughing out loud while driving along. Perfect company in the car. Thank you.

    "Fantastic"

    I loved this book, the accent was a bit different at first then it just added to the story - a bit predictable but a lovely escape

    An avid listener of fiction, it almost makes the long journey to work worth it.

    "enjoyable, romantic and funny in some parts"

    there were some scenarios that were just unbelievable but I can image it would be very Bridget Jones if it was made into a film.

    "A lovely story"

    A great girly book. Both funny and romantic, with likeable characters and a good narrator.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Time of Our Lives?

    the birth of Adam


    What about Alex Tregear’s performance did you like?

    excellent. This lady has many voices akin to listening to a radio play with many performers


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no but I did shudder as poor Imogen went from disaster to disaster

    I am 31 year old mum to be and I'm totally addicted to audible. I have listened to a wide variety of books and recently enjoying thrillers.

    Story
    "Lightweight fluff, faint praise."

    This is an undemanding read. It is full of mildly amusing references and an excess of cringe-worthy mishaps. There are no big surprises and the ending is predictable, but a pleasant enough story for all that. Once I got over the contradiction of the main character's inability to be sensibly assertive and yet very successful in a demanding position and with a ridiculous mother, I quite enjoyed this tale. The narrator did a good job with various accents, although the Italian accented English of a significant character got lost partway through, which was a shame. I remember now why I dislike a Liverpudlian voice, even one less extreme as here. Its very unlikely that I'll listen to this book again.
