Summary

Alan Titchmarsh's sparkling new novel is a delicious blend of humour and romance and a resounding affirmation that there is no such thing as the generation gap.

The voice on the other end of the phone was severe.
'It's your grandmother.'
'Yes?'
'She's been arrested.'

Nick Robertson has become used to his grandmother Rosie's dotty behaviour. At 86, a widow now, she is determined that before life passes her by, she will live a little. Or preferably a lot. It wouldn't be so bad if Nick had nothing else to do, but with a job to find, two warring parents to cope with and a love life in terminal decline, he would prefer his grandmother to get on with things quietly. But, Rosie insists, there is no time like the present....

Story with a twist

Alan Titchmarch narrates with a flow which is easy to listen too. His books are always well written. Having holidayed on the Isle of Wight for many years I was also able to easily visualise the places in the book.

Up to Alan’s usual high standards

Alan has a gentle but compelling writing style that works very well for an audio book. I would highly recommend his stories.

Duchess

Another well written love story. With a touch of laughter, joy, romance and sadness.
Alan Titchmarsh never disappoint me when it comes to love story. The twists and turns always amazed ms.Every time I write a review of his book. I often ask “Is he really romantic “?

Fantastic story.

Alan really can tell a good story. It was good old fashioned romance with a few twists. Loveable characters made it difficult to stop listening and there were even a few moments that made me blush. This is the third of his books that I have listened to and I won’t stop till I’ve heard them all.
