Summary

Run away to a beautiful Scottish island and let the unmissable new audiobook from Sunday Times best seller Jenny Colgan warm up your spring!

Dreams start here....

On the quayside next to the Endless Beach sits the Summer Seaside Kitchen. It's a haven for tourists and locals alike, who all come to eat the freshest local produce on the island and catch up with the gossip. Flora, who runs the café, feels safe and content - unless she thinks too hard about her relationship with Joel, her gorgeous but emotionally (and physically) distant boyfriend. While Flora is in turmoil about her relationship, her best friend, Lorna, is pining after the local doctor.

Saif came to the island as a refugee, having lost all of his family. But he's about to get some shocking news which will change everything for him. As cold winter nights shift to long summer days, can Flora find her happy ever after with Joel?

Fantastic read, hope there is a part 3

I really loved listening to this. I fell in loved with all the characters. I feel like I knew them all and couldn’t wait to get back listening to the book.
My favourite characters were flora, lorna, Caleb, Colton to say a few.
Flora is one of the main characters was working in the city and have come home cooking and got her own little Cafe up and running. Also had some romantic issues going on with Joe. In one part of the book she goes to New York the way the writer discribes the scenery in all its colour and depth, have made me want to go there. I would recommend this book to anyone there is something in it for anyone. It is a warm whippy well good book

Loved it!

Where does The Endless Beach rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Very high, I really enjoyed the characters and story line. I liked that the relationships were fairly believable and realistic, instead of everything being perfect.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Saif. I enjoyed the storyline about his children and how he learnt to cope in a new country and in a new situation. He was also kind and laid back.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

When their dad walked Finton down the aisle.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The ending was quite sad

Any additional comments?

I didn't like the voice for the child (Aget), but then I often find adults narrator a child's voice a bit cringy.

Excellent, easy read and satisfying!

What made the experience of listening to The Endless Beach the most enjoyable?

The accents and the storyline worked well together.

What other book might you compare The Endless Beach to, and why?

Very unlike other books by Jenny Colgan as had more depth. Very topical.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes at times!

Least Favourite of Jenny’s books so far

It took me ages to get into this one.
Too many characters at the beginning to get my head around, started to un-ravel and then I started to enjoy....
I felt there were far too many intertwined story’s in the book, who’s characters, & all their individual parts within the story felt rushed.
All ended too soon, without any real closure, likely book 2 coming.
Disliked the narrator, her voice for the 4 yr old was far too young and became annoying.
Nothing like the Seaside kitchen trio.....

A reasonable sequel

I was looking forward to this and began this book with high expectations after reading Summer at the Seaside Kitchen, but I found this sequel to that story disappointing. Parts of it deteriorated into being quite silly, which is a shame as the first book had hidden depths compared with this and showed such promise for these slightly mismatched characters. Still a reasonable sequel and good in places and at the beginning, but not a patch on the first in the series.

Loved it.

This story held my interest all the way through. I love Mure and all the characters on the island. But please let there be a #3 in this series. I want more of them, to see the characters story line continue even more. Really liked the narrator, thought she did a wonderful job with all the different characters and their accents.
