When her first love walks back into her life, Harriet Locke is thrown - because Sally McCall still looks as gorgeous as ever. The trouble is, Sally doesn't trust Harriet, and with good reason: she hasn't forgotten the past. Sally loved her once, but 17 years later, is that still the case? And if it is, there's just the small matter of living in different states, as well as convincing Sally she's worth taking a chance on again. Will Harriet and Sally be lucky enough to find love twice in a lifetime?

I had already read the book a few times and had an idea in my mind of how these characters would be, before listening to the audio. I was delighted with the narration by TJ Richards, she made the story come alive and her depiction of Aunt Paula was spot on! Once I began listening, I didn't want to stop as it draws you in to see what happens next. It's no surprise for Clare's fans to see there is a happy ending, but the journey is a mix of some trepidation and laughs along the way. Second chances can work out!

The main character this time around is Tanya, someone who I greatly disliked in the previous story. We learn a lot more about why she behaves as she does. She starts off as rude as ever but circumstances help to soften her edges and when she bumps into Sophie (literally and with amazing regularity), she becomes someone you can warm to. She still slips up but not as much. This story doesn't have quite as much comedy as the previous two, it's sad in places but it shows there is happiness to be had if we just allow people to help. Lucy Price-lewis is an excellent choice for narrator and has a very relaxing voice which I found suited the story. I found it easy to understand which character was speaking throughout.

I love this story of Meg and Kate, they are totally meant to be together. There's a lot of comedy and a good dose of angst thrown in to balance things out. And of course a good old plot twist which I didn't see coming - that's always Good! Give yourself a treat and listen to this. Although it can be enjoyed by itself, I would say listen to the series to get a more rounded picture of the characters.

I read London Calling when it first came out and really enjoyed it. I did wonder how it would fare as an audio book and I wasn't disappointed. It was great to hear Jess and Lucy brought to life. I would certainly recommend it.

Nobody would ever describe Scarlet Williams as a ray of sunshine, but that doesn’t mean she deserves the flood that wipes out her basement flat, making her temporarily homeless. Enter Joy Hudson, local mayor & sunshine specialist, who opens her house to flood refugees and ends up with Scarlet on her doorstep. Two more opposing characters you couldn’t fail to meet, and yet, somehow, they strike up a friendship. But when the rain stops and the sun comes out, could that friendship blossom into something more?

I've reviewed Nothing To Lose before after reading the book and I really enjoyed it. To now hear it so brilliantly narrated has been a pleasure, bringing the characters to life and seeing them differently in my head. This is my first audio book and I highly recommend it.
