Lovely easy-listening story

A gentle non-challenging story, beautifully read as usual by Karen Cass, my favourite narrator.

Nothing exciting, but this book definitely has a feel-good factor, and like all Heidi’s stories, leaves you feeling as if you know the characters personally.

At first I thought it was going to be a bit boring, but I ended up really enjoying it.

Not up to Heidi's usual standard

Usually love Heidi's books but this one just didn't get off the burner, kept waiting and waiting for it to pick up space but sadly it never did. 100% predictable, even the so called hidden 'twists' to the story you could spot a mile off.
Karen Cass a fantastic narrator as always and sods the best she could to bring this poor story to life

A bit same all the way through

I liked it but wasn’t excited about listening to it, there was no excitement in the book. The characters were very predictable in their stories.

Love and courage of a sybling

Brilliant, can't wait for the next chapter in the Square and Gardens. Also the clever twists and turns that bought a teenager to realise life is worth everything you give to receive well deserved rewards of respect and love. Just brilliant - well done Heidi.

Seriously boring

Very boring from the beginning and very slow story. The reading doesn’t help either. Disappointing overall

The perfect summer read

Heidi Swain never disappoints and Poppy’s Recipe for Life is a summer delight.
Nightingale Square and it’s residents will quickly capture your heart. Heidi creates relatable scenarios that always leave me craving more. This is a must read/listen if you are a fan of her work.

Light summer read

Cozy light summer read. Made me want to find a little village with people who care about each other. Great escape during this bleak times.
