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.

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.

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.
