Summary

Suddenly unemployed and single, Anna escapes to her parents' beautiful house in France for a much needed recharge - and to work out what she wants to do next with her life now her carefully mapped out plan has gone out the window. 

Anna gives herself six months to recuperate, all the while helping renovate her parents' adjoining gites into picturesque B&Bs. But working alongside the ruggedly handsome Sam on the renovation project, she didn't expect for life to take an unexpected, if not unwelcome, twist....

Nice, easy listen

The theme was interesting and the story, although a bit predictable, did keep me entertained. The characters were likeable and you got the feeling you got to know them. A good holiday or chill-out story.

The most unbelievably irritating narrator

I'm sure this may be an interesting story but could no longer listen to it because of the extremely irritating voice of the narrator

Dreadful narration!

I could barely understand this narrator’s speech- whining, nasally sounding voice with incomprehensible accent! Tried to listen several times but gave up.

not a fan, slightly dissapointed

Normally I love books in this genre. Unfortunately, the author gets very redundant (the word literally is in about every chapter) and repeats things unnecessary to the plot multiple times, "Thomas goes by Tom now." The reader isn't great either, which might, or may not, be a part of my distaste for the main character. This story has potential, and I understand the effort put in with attempting depth of characters. It just isn't there for me.
