Summary

St Aidan: a cosy Cornish village where friendships are made for life and it’s always cocktail hour somewhere....

The perfect cosy listen for fans of Phillipa Ashley, Trisha Ashley and Holly Martin!

A December to remember...

Christmas in a Cornish castle? Sign Ivy Starforth up! Hired to kit out the holiday rental as the world’s most Instagramable festive dreamland, there’s only one thing standing in the way of her hefty paycheque - the lord of the manor. 

Bill Markham could give Scrooge a run for his money, but Ivy is firmly #TeamChristmas...even if her handsome host seems to be doing everything he can to sabotage her staging. Maybe she shouldn’t have stumbled in on him starkers in the hot tub? 

As the temperature outside cools, things inside the castle heat up. It’s been a long time since Ivy allowed herself to give in to temptation...surely one little kiss under the mistletoe won’t hurt?

Poor narration

Unbelievably poor narration Ivy is supposed to be in her 30’s but sounded 80 and a life long smoker. The story and characters were good however let down by the narration.

Gave up after 5 hours

I’m sorry to say I’m giving up on this one. I really tried to get into it, but after 5 hours I still wasn’t enjoying this. Maybe it gets better? But I’ve had enough.
I think a lot of the fault lies with the choice of narrator, she doesn’t suit the story. Most of the book reviews on Goodreads praise this book as being fun and festive, but this narrators voice makes this sound dismal and moany.

The narration, the narration, the narration....

I stuck it out for an hour, but this narrator makes the main female character sound like a prim 80 year old. I can't evaluate the storyline or the writing because the narrator got in the way. I'd been looking forward to trying this author, but will watch out for this narrator!
