Summary

When Bella finds a dashing homeless man on her doorstep, she invites him into her cottage and into her life. But Isaac's keeping a secret from her, this woman whom he hadn't expected to fall for.

She can't ignore the chemistry between them, but she's had her trust broken before. Will Bella run when she learns the truth, or could he be the man to help her to love again?

Annoying voice

This woman’s babyish voice is infuriating and ruins the book. The actual story is fine

Lovely feel good story

I loved this story though at times I did want to shake the character of Bella and tell her to stop being so stubborn and stupid.

I’ve marked the performance down a star not because it wasn’t as good but because the narrator needs to increase the volume of her voice as I have had to turn the volume up considerably on my car audio system to get this so that I could hear it. I’ve not had this problem with any other audiobook and I listen this way every week day on my commute to work and back. It didn’t spoil my enjoyment of the book but it does need addressing.

All in all an enjoyable book with the feel good factor that I like. I’ve already purchased the next in the series so look forward to listening to that.

Rubbish book

What a load of trash and the readers voice was intensely irritating a complete waste of a credit

Sweetest thing, even with the naughty bits

I have now have listened to this twice and found myself enjoying it more and more each time I do. Holly Martin has a wonderful writing style and voice and I am looking forward to hearing and reading her others.
