Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of A Vintage Summer, written by Cathy Bramley and read by Colleen Prendergast.

A sparkling summer story that's full of surprises!

London has not been kind to Lottie Allbright. Realising it’s time to cut and run, she packs up and moves back home - but finds her family in disarray. In need of a new place to stay, Lottie takes up the offer of a live-in job managing a local vineyard. There’s a lot to learn - she didn’t even know grapes could grow so far north!

Butterworth Wines in the rolling Derbyshire hills has always been run on love and passion, but a tragic death has left everyone at a loss. Widowed Betsy is trying to keep the place afloat but is harbouring a debilitating secret. Meanwhile her handsome but interfering grandson, Jensen, is trying to convince her to sell up and move into a home.

Lottie’s determined to save Butterworth Wines, but with all this and an unpredictable English summer to deal with, it’ll be a challenge.

And that’s before she discovers something that will turn her summer - and her world - upside down....

Great book but annoying narration.

Good book, but I found this narrator so annoying. Enunciates all the wrong words, almost sounds like she's reading to a child.

A lovely heart warming story centred around a vineyard which was very interesting. Brilliantly narrated by Colleen Prendergast as usual.

Another Bramley Triumph

There is no one better to cheer me up than a Cathy Bramley book. College Prendergast is the perfect narrator. Thank you for A Vintage Summer!
