What would make it onto your Can't Live Without list?

Stella Hill is proud of the home she's created for herself and her daughter. She's worked hard to buy the very best of everything. But when she wakes one morning to find her kitchen on fire, Stella knows her life will never be the same again.

At least she has Paul to lean on: Paul Smart, owner of Smart Homes, confirmed bachelor and unknowing recipient of a schoolgirl crush Stella never quite got over. When the charismatic John Dean turns up after 16 years, Stella is determined not to fall for him again. Because now her heart belongs elsewhere. Or does it?

With a boss she's half in love with, a teenage daughter about to go seriously off the rails, a spendaholic mother, and a house to rebuild, Stella's problems are only just beginning.

Can Stella put her life - and her home - back together again? And will she ever realise just what it is she really can't live without?

Terrific story - heart and humour beautifully read

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This was an unusual take on romance. A great cast of characters and a funny, sad and sympathetic heroine.
Listening to this book was way better than reading it as the narrator is brilliant.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Can't Live Without?

The opening really grabs you and reels you in.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

She lost everything but found what she really wanted.

Any additional comments?

The narration of this book made the characters so specific and individual. It was so enjoyable to listen to all the different types and accents. Wonderful!
