Summary

Could you survive a digital detox? This hilarious new romantic comedy from the author of The Bucket List to Mend a Broken Heart is perfect for fans of Lucy Diamond and Sophie Kinsella. 

Daisy Hobson lives her whole life online. A marketing manager by day, she tweets her friends, Instagrams every meal and arranges (frankly, appalling) dates on Tinder. But when her social media obsession causes her to make a catastrophic mistake at work, Daisy finds her life going into free fall....

Her sister, Rosie, thinks she has the answer to all of Daisy's problems - a digital detox in a remote cottage in Cumbria that she just happens to need help doing up. Soon, too, Daisy finds herself with two welcome distractions: sexy French exchange-help Jean-Marie and Jack, the brusque and rugged man next door who keeps accidentally rescuing her. But can Daisy, a London girl, ever really settle into life in a tiny, isolated village? And, more importantly, can she survive without her phone?

Enjoyable story - terrible narrator

I struggled to enjoy the story as the narraters voice is just ghastly! However, if you can move past that its a fun modern story

A really funny read, seemed a bit slow at the start but once you get in to it then it's a really good read.

lovely story, terrible accent

nice story though I did find the protagonist a bit frustrating. The narrator was brilliant at creating the different characters and showing their emotions but the lead character had an accent that was not only irritating, but also completely wrong for a character from the south. It shouldn't have spoiled it but for some reason it just grated on me

I did not enjoy .. returned it

I just couldnt get into this story and only lasted mid way. I just found the plot extremely boring and dull. No ups or downs and from the start I didnt enjoy the narration.

Just okay

I was sooo excited to listen to this book after all the reviews and I have to admit, I was really disappointed. I feel like the entire book was a lead up to nothing really...

And I could not hear her tweet read one more time... I considered returning the book after the first few chapters, but tried to be patient for it to get better, but it never did...
