Too drawn out!

I struggled to finish this book as I found the story slow and very predictable. It was quite repetitive too (regarding the characters) which was also irritating! Sorry this one was not for me.

Fantastic

This has to be one of the best audio books I have listened to in a long time. Do not hesitate to download.

Loved it

Jane Green does it again. I couldn’t stop listening. I loved it. A little bit of escapism.

Leave it to the professionals

I bought this Audiobook because I’ve always read Jane Green books, but I couldn’t listen past the first 6 or 7 chapters. I’m sorry to say that Jane Green really is not a narrator. I listen to a lot of Audiobooks but I couldn’t continue to listen. The voice is not expressive and is almost monotone. I’m so disappointed because as I say I’ve always had a fondness for Jane Green as an author. Maybe in the future I’ll true this again as a paperback book rather than an audiobook.

Fantastic read

Well done Jane Green, another fantastic book, I couldn’t put this down. Very poignant with a sensitive approach to the subject matter. 5⭐️

A book that warms the soul like the sunshine!

An enjoyable listen, with characters i warmed to and cared for. I wouldn't say the story will stand out in my memory, nor had a big impact on me. But in terms of entertainment and feel good factors it scores highly! Worth a read/listen.
