Ellis, Julia, and Dorie. Best friends since Catholic grade school, they now find themselves, in their mid-thirties, at the crossroads of life and love. Ellis, recently fired from a job she gave everything to, is rudderless and now beginning to question the choices she's made over the past decade of her life. Julia--whose caustic wit covers up her wounds--has a man who loves her and is offering her the world, but she can't hide from how deeply insecure she feels about her looks, her brains, her life.

A wonderfully captivating, brilliantly narrated audiobook. With breathtaking scenery and a REALLY in depth look at the intricacies of friendship both old and new, this book offered a lovely layering of different storylines which blended together very cleverly and kept you hooked. Love Mary Kay Andrews but have only read (or listened to) 3 books so far and will certainly be ordering more. Highly recommended.

Summer has arrived in the Cornish town of Mount Polbearne, and Polly Waterford couldn't be happier. Because Polly is in love: She's in love with the beautiful seaside town she calls home, she's in love with running the bakery on Beach Street, and she's in love with her boyfriend, Huckle. And yet there's something unsettling about the gentle summer breeze that's floating through town.

This is a wonderful sequel to the first novel and equally spell binding. It is super easy to listen to and has a real feel good flare. A little more depth than your usual chic lit. You feel as though you are there with the characters. Highly recommended.

Addictive, funny and sadly believable - great, strong characters that you will end up wanting to share a coffee morning with. Highly recommended!

Sophie Mills has worked her Manolo Blahniks off to reach the near-top of her profession. And she's very happy with her priorities in life - her job, her neurotic cat Artemis and her passion for shoes. After all, relationships only get in the way. And as for children? She hasn't even begun to think about them yet.

A slow start and lengthy plot lines should put you off but the characters really get under your skin and you can't stop listening. You will experience a wide range of emotions reading this, real tear jerking sadness, laughter and excitement. I am delighted there is a sequel 'The Accidental Family' to look forward to and am just waiting for Audible to get it!
