Now she's a single mother still living in the quaint seaside town of Newbay, still working at the hotel where she got her first ever job.

My daughter watched the series before and she loves listening to the episodes over and over. I prefer her to listen to stories as opposed to watching them, because listening encourages imagination and also doesn’t expose her to the blue lights and overly vivid colours of the tv.

In the quaint seaside town of Newbay, a beginner's cookery course is starting. And three very different students have signed up.... Liz, determined to find love, has heard the old adage that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. John is newly widowed after 57 years of marriage, facing a lifetime of cheese on toast. Twenty-two-year-old DeeDee has been drifting from one dead-end job to another. The only thing they have in common: between them, they can barely boil an egg!

I adore this book! As all Milly Johnson books, it has a fantastic, captivating storyline with fabulous characters. I just love Sophie, Luke, Ells Bells, Tracy, Lena, to name a few. Such a well-written, entertaining story! It was hard to stop myself listening to the whole book in one go but I wanted to make it last at least a few days. I thoroughly enjoyed it and - again - Colleen Prendergast has done an absolutely wonderful job of the narration! Fantastic French, Yorkshire and Scouse accents! Her voice is soothing, interesting, and she narrates Milly Johnson’s books perfectly! Such a great voice artist!
I highly recommend this fantastic, entertaining, relaxing book!

I was really looking forward to this audiobook but I was very disappointed by it. So many forced twists to prolong the storyline, I felt frustrated reading about this bunch of perfect, unfortunate, beautiful, highly sexual people. I thought the Italian, American, Irish, Scottish and Geordie accents were terrible. Sorry, I don’t mean to offend but this is what I thought.
I felt disappointed because I usually love all Jill Mansell books.

I always feel sad when I finish a Milly Johnson book! This lady is seriously talented, an amazing storyteller, has fantastic storylines that makes you laugh, cry and capture your heart. Whenever I listen to one of her audiobooks or read one of her books, I’m a bit crabby when I have to do other things, for I miss reading/listening to her story. Milly Johnson is the best in her category, utterly captivating!! Love, love, LOVE Milly Johnson!

Eve Glace - co-owner of the theme park Winterworld - is having a baby, and her due date is a perfectly timed 25th December. And she’s decided that she and her husband, Jacques, should renew their wedding vows with all the pomp and Christmas ceremony that was missing from the first time round. But things keep going wrong in Winterworld - is it because the the usually competent site manager, Effin Williams, has lost his focus, or is there something more sinister going on?
