Summary

This summer will change everything!

Aria Summers knows what she wants. A life on the road, with best friend Rosie and her beloved camper-van-cum-book-shop and definitely, definitely, no romance.

But when Aria finds herself falling - after one too many glasses of wine, from a karaoke stage - into the arms of Jonathan, a part of her comes back to life for the first time in years.

Since her beloved husband died, Aria has sworn off love, unless it’s the kind you can find in the pages of a book. One love of her life is quite enough.

And so Aria tries to forget Jonathan and sets off for a summer to remember in France. But could this trip change Aria’s life forever?

A heartwarming, uplifting and hilarious novel of friendship, love and adventure! Perfect for fans of Debbie Johnson and Holly Martin.

Feel good book

Bit predictable but lovely story all the same. The only flaw with the reader’s performance is Johnathon (and Max’s) accents! John sounds a bit creepy to be honest...

Wonderful

A wonderful read, a perfect sequel. My only compliant is it wasn’t long enough! Please write another I have fallen completely in love with every character.

Heartwarming

Another great book, the second in what i hope will be a series of, heartwarming, touching stories by Rebecca. I struggled to fall asleep with both this and the previous 'travelling' audio books, which I've never had happen before. Can't wait for the next travelling adventure stories 😊♥️♥️

Bored

Did not hold my attention. Wasn't getting anywhere. The characters didn't endear me. I was bored. Sorry, I tried.

Cute but a little boring

If you’re looking for cute and predictable, this will do the trick! I enjoyed these characters in the first book, but they flattened in this one. The story is sweet but entirely uneventful. Nothing unexpected, which is good if you want the lowest stress read possible.

The narrator almost ruins it. The men all sound elderly with a history of smoking. The women sound like they’ve aged decades instead of just months since the first book. It’s hard to reconcile the mental picture from the voice with the people who are supposed to be “having the young people sex.”
