Publisher's Summary

Before The Beach Hut...enjoy Wild Oats. Jamie Wilding's return home is not quite going according to plan. A lot has changed in the picturesque Shropshire village of Upper Faviell since she left after the death of her mother. Her father is broke and behaving like a teenager. Her best friend's marriage is slowly falling apart. And the man she lost her heart to years ago is trying to buy her beloved family home.

As Jamie attempts to fix the mess, she is forced to confront a longstanding family feud and the truth about her father before she can finally listen to her own heart.

    "Acting"

    Appalling male voices - all sounded like thugs! Just read and don't act.
    Bit of a cheesy storyline.
    Much too long

    "Great story..... rubbish accents"

    A feel good book, with a good storyline and lots of ups and downs although the accents of the narrator were rubbish and quite annoying.

    "Brilliant story."

    A beautiful absorbing story, well read and couldn't wait to get to the end. Brilliant. Suitable for anyone who is a hopeless romantic.

    I enjoy reading but never find the time to pick up a book so Audible has been a great find! Addicted to good detective crime books!

    "Great lighthearted story not so great male voices"

    A nice easy listening book with some good twists and turns but narrator isn't good with the male voices as others have said.

    I did enjoy it and pushing that aside a good book in all.

    Story
    "laryngitis outbreak?"
    Would you listen to Wild Oats again? Why?

    No, loads of the characters sounded like they had laryngitis.


    What did you like best about this story?

    it was cute and cheerful and inoffensive


    How could the performance have been better?

    If half the characters didn't sound like they were recovering from some sort of horrific throat complaint.
    It wasn't even just the men!

    "Entertaining"

    Overall this was a good story, although a bit predictable. I wasn't keen on the narrator's voices for the different characters. This was an entertaining book but I don't think I would listen to it again.

    Story
    "Not well written"
    Any additional comments?

    This is not terrible, but it's not well written. It overuses metaphor and the dialogue is, at times, written like the author got down a thesaurus to liven-up sentences, rather than simply write as the character would have spoken. Needless to say, that jarred. It would be a much better book if Veronica Henry had simply trusted herself and not tried so hard. Maybe it improved after the first couple of chapters. I got no further than that and will return.
