Summary

Escape to the summer and feel the warmth of Sunday Times best-seller Paige Toon's storytelling.

Daisy has been dumped, unceremoniously jilted. Not by any ordinary guy, no...Daisy has a secret in her past that she won't even tell her best friend, Holly. She's given up on men - and on her own family. But life still has to be lived and where better to recover than as far away from home as possible.

Grabbing a chance to see the world, Daisy packs her bags and joins the team catering to the world's highest-paid, supercharged racing drivers on the Formula 1 Grand Prix circuit. From Brazil to Italy, from Melbourne to Monte Carlo, life passes in a dizzying whirlwind. But nothing - and no one - can stop Daisy from falling again...this time for a man who is prepared to risk his life, and his heart, for the sake of speed, danger and ultimate success.

Love the book hate how it is narrated

This book is one of my favorites. I was so pleased to find it as an audible but the voice and the way the narrator talks ruins it. Buy the book its so much better.

Marred by terrible 'Scottish' accent

This book was so so. It win me over in the end, but was a very familiar story line, although the F1 scene it was set in helped make it a bit different.
The characters are likeable but the narrator's efforts to do all the accents - particularly a Scottish one was quite bad & therefore distracting. Apart from the not so great accents the emotion and performance of the narrator was excellent.

I've enjoyed other Paige Toon books more but perfectly readable for a light holiday light read.

Awful Narration

I had to stop listening to this book purely because the narrators' accents were so awful it was off putting. Particularly her attempt at a Scottish accent! It's a shame as the story line did appear to be quite good. However I didn't make it past chapter 5.

Great story HORRIBLE narration!

Stick with this as I got involved in the story but the ridiculous, inaccurate accents were really offputting throughout.

Excellent book, horrendous audiobook

The narrator is appalling at accents, and this book requires a lot of accents. From what I can tell she is American, so does Daisy ok, but her attempt at a Scottish accent for the friend is awful. It is so bad I am struggling to get through it, I can not believe anyone thought it was passable. Her attempt at English is only slightly better, but her German and Portuguese accents are unrecognisable. As there are so many international characters in the book they should have sourced a good narrator, not the cheapest which is what has happened in this case as far as I can see. I am only persevering as I have read the book and love the ending, but would strongly recommed you don't bother as it is so distracting it has ruined the whole book for me. This is no reflection on the written book or any other Paige Toon books, my favourite being the Longest Holiday, which is a lovely audio book.

Fantastic author and story but let down by the narrator

As a huge Paige Toon fan I was thrilled to find this book on Audible. It is a lovely story with twists and turns, not unlike the F1 racing premise. Filled with romance, drama and will they won't they angst. However, from the first minute, I was in a debate as to whether or not to immediately return the book as the narrator was butchering a multitude of accents. The only credible one being the American accent of the main character. In particular the so called attempt at a Scottish accent was so distracting that I could barely concentrate on what she was trying to say.

All in all a great story, but I will be steering clear of any further work from this narrator.
