Summary

Best friends May, Lara, and Clare are desperate for a holiday. But when they arrive in Ren Dullem, it seems it is not the place they thought it was.…

May can't wait to get away from men after being cruelly deceived. Then in Dullem she falls for one of the inhabitants….

Lara walks in to find her boyfriend, James, in bed with his ex. She needs the sea air to heal her.

Clare's kind boyfriend Lud wants her to live abroad with him, but she's just been offered a promotion. It gives her the excuse she needs to end the relationship and find some excitement.

Will this holiday be the break they all need?

Amazing Storytelling!!!!

Where does It's Raining Men rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I did not want this book to end!!! It is a wonderful tale full of great characters not to mention the wonderful seaside town in which residents keep a secret and it all adds to the magical warmth of the story.

Can't wait to read more from this author and the narrator is truly awesome!!!!

Who was your favorite character and why?

All the three women who visited this seaside resort!

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The one where Gladys got her just rewards from Raine!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The scene where the owner of the cottage showed the carving of his dead dog to Lara.

Any additional comments?

Totally loved this book so much and will listen to it many a time!!!!

Hoped the town secret was a joke...

What disappointed you about It's Raining Men?

It started well, a promising chick lit / romantic read... Then came the ridiculous town secret..I mean really?! Everything else was quite realistic but that? So strange! It needed to be either chick lit or fantasy but it just didn't work as a bit of both!

Would you ever listen to anything by Milly Johnson again?

Not if they all follow the strange chick lit/fantasy theme...

Would you be willing to try another one of Colleen Prendergast’s performances?

Yes, it was one of the better things about it

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Minus the silly secret, it was reasonably well written

Not up to Milly Johnson's usual standard.

I love Milly Johnson books just buy them as they become available. This one however was okay but probably the least favourite of all her books.

Here Come the Girls was great I listened to it quite a few times but this one
definitely is a once only listen.

Very Enjoyable

Milly Johnson never disappoints and the narrator just completes the whole package. I've listened to 6 books of Milly and I hope there are many more to come. Her books are fun and have happy endings.

Love these books and narrator.


Love these books and narrator. Real-ish women characters, real problems, good coverage of this age group. A little too magical for my taste, still good listen.

This is such a silly story

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I don't really know. Noone? People who like stories about mermaids?

What was most disappointing about Milly Johnson’s story?

That I have enjoyed so many of her other books, and this one was just so silly. I couldn't tell the main characters from each other, and the men they fell in love with, yuk and yuk!

What about Colleen Prendergast’s performance did you like?

She was the only good thing aboyt this book

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

boredom
