Publisher's Summary

A poignant and heart-warming tale about family, relationships and new beginnings, The Summer Seaside Kitchen is best-selling author Jenny Colgan at her best. A must for fans of lighthearted comedy and cooking, this charming story will make you reminisce about your own family ties.

Flora is forced to move back to the tiny island of Mure from the bright lights of London. It's tough: even the beautiful landscapes and bright blue sea can't lift her spirits - she's too busy looking after her dad and her feckless brothers. Then she chances upon her mum's collection of recipes and begins to cook her way through it. As she reconnects with her family and the place she was born, might she also find herself?

    "Different but brilliant!"

    At first this book was a bit slow, I was 1/3rd in before it grabbed me and from that moment until the end I didn't stop listening and just had to do the rest of it in one day... its style is different from what Jenny Colgan normally writes as it's written from 2 characters perspectives, I think had it not been this way I wouldn't have understood the motives of the second character or understood him at all. It made him more rounded and more human and I think that's what made the book so much more interesting. Absolutely a must read if your a JC fan. I think this is her best book to date.

    "A nice holiday read"

    The performance was really good, but the American accents were a little abrasive. The story was pleasant, but it didn't grip me as much as Colgan's other books. I think I would have preferred to hear Joel's story, because it seems more complex. Overall, an enjoyable holiday read. I always like a story about pretty scenery, food, romance and new-found happiness.

    Story
    "Northern Delights!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Summer Seaside Kitchen to be better than the print version?

    This is a delightful summer story, romantic and eventful and is brought to life really well by the narration.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the Nordic and folklore influences of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I would really recommend this Audible edition of the story. It is well read and easy to listen to, engaging the listener. This is the first Jenny Colgan book I have listened to but I will be looking out for more!

    "enjoyed it mostly"

    It was an enjoyable story, but I did struggle to get through it as I didn't like the voices done by the narrator particularly the child's voice.
