Excellent in every respect

I have loved all of the Katie Flynn books that I have read or listened to so far, they are always books that you can't wait to finish but at the same time don't want to finish, Anne Dover is one of my favourite narraters, she makes the characters come to life, she's brilliant.

Down Daisy Street.

Another warm and cosy story from this wonderful author. I read this book many years ago. But had to listen to it on audiobook. Anne Dover read each chapter to perfection. This narrator knows how to bring all the characters to life. Looking forward to the next book.
