Ever dreamed of starting over? Issy Randall can bake. No, more than that - Issy can create stunning, mouth-wateringly divine cakes. After a childhood spent in her beloved Grampa Joe’s bakery she has undoubtedly inherited his talent. So when she’s made redundant from her safe but dull City job, Issy decides to seize the moment and open up her own café. It should be a piece of cake, right?

A nice story, slightly ruined by Grandpa's voice. Loved Lewis, he was my favourite. Easy listening story with a couple of laughs.

Anna Shapiro's husband has been a hypochondriac for longer than she cares to remember. Now Dan is even frightened to make love, in case the strain gives him a heart attack. Anna is determined to find some fun soon - not to mention some decent sex.Then a sensational new book comes out, suggesting that women are just as capabale as men of having affairs purely for sexual pleasure. Could sex be like going for a facial, except you get an orgasm instead of your blackheads squeezed?

The editing on this story is poor, you can hear the page turn at times and a lot of it is repeated. There are some quite funny bits in the story which made me chuckle, story is entertaining and an easy listen

Jessica and Carol, two childhood friends, are both engaged to be married. Secretly afraid her fiancé is going to chicken out, Carol is insisting on a double wedding. Jessica is appalled at the idea: she doesn't want to share the happiest day of her life with whining Carol and her womanising boyfriend. Unfortunately for her, she has a very soft heart and is easily persuaded to agree. Then her mother goes ballistic. This is not what she wants for her precious daughter!

An ok story, not too predictable, I still haven't got the hang of not falling asleep when listening to the stories! Set in Ireland, I found the narrator's different accents quite entertaining.

A slow story, I was really glad when I got to the end. This was my first download, it took me ages to get through it as I kept falling asleep, not a very gripping story.
