Summary

The heartwarming new audiobook from the number five Sunday Times best-selling author, perfect for fans of Carole Matthews, Milly Johnson and Cathy Bramley.

Kate is on the run from her almost-divorced husband, who is determined to have her back, and she has found the perfect place to hide...a little cottage on Nightingale Square in Norwich, far away from her old life in London. But the residents of Nightingale Square don't take no for an answer, and Kate soon finds herself pulled into a friendship with Lisa, her bossy but lovely new neighbour.

Within a matter of days Kate is landed with the job of campaigning the council to turn the green into a community garden. Meanwhile all the residents of Nightingale Square are horrified to discover that the Victorian mansion house on the other side of the square has been bought by developers. But when all hope is lost, the arrival of a handsome stranger is sure to turn things around!

Heidi Swain is the perfect summer listen - you'll want to find your own green space, stretch out in the sun and dive into life at Nightingale Square.

A good summer read

I enjoyed this well narrated story, which was a perfect one to relax too and nicely predictable, if a little contrived in places. This doesn’t detract from it in any way and I recommend it.

Predictable but pleasant

Predictable chick lit, great for treadmill walking, knitting or recovering. Easy escape and in its odd way does draw one in, liked the relationship between the 3 main females. Would recommend if going through rehab,post surgery, or escape eg brexit 😂😂plesant light listen, except for American accent of one character.

Captivating

Sunshine and Sweet Peas in Nightingale Square

Loved all these books but they are definitely enhanced by Karen Cass' narration. She is one of the best I've listened to. Some brilliant stories ruined by a terrible narrator. Don't change her Heidi. She is the best.

I couldn't get onto this book.

I started listening and tried my best on various occasions but just didn't get hooked. I hate leaving less than glowing reviews, but this book was not for me.

addictive

I have to admit that we are addicted to these books, I love how they all interact with the other books, but are all individual stories so you would never need to read one to understand another.

I love the history and research, and the magic of romance. all my favourites covered in this book

Not for me!

I usually enjoy a book about a community of people. Most have a range of characters with different interesting backstories. Unfortunately, I’m at chapters 12 and this just isn’t working for me. It well written enough. Just not to my taste.
