Summary

Before The Beach Hut...enjoy Wild Oats. Jamie Wilding's return home is not quite going according to plan. A lot has changed in the picturesque Shropshire village of Upper Faviell since she left after the death of her mother. Her father is broke and behaving like a teenager. Her best friend's marriage is slowly falling apart. And the man she lost her heart to years ago is trying to buy her beloved family home.

As Jamie attempts to fix the mess, she is forced to confront a longstanding family feud and the truth about her father before she can finally listen to her own heart.

Acting

Appalling male voices - all sounded like thugs! Just read and don't act.
Bit of a cheesy storyline.
Much too long

Great story..... rubbish accents

A feel good book, with a good storyline and lots of ups and downs although the accents of the narrator were rubbish and quite annoying.

Entertaining

Overall this was a good story, although a bit predictable. I wasn't keen on the narrator's voices for the different characters. This was an entertaining book but I don't think I would listen to it again.

Very disappointed .

Liked nothing about this book!
Veronica Henry is one of my favourites but this is not enjoyable at all.
Smutty, sexy and boring.
Narrator is awful.

Brilliant story.

A beautiful absorbing story, well read and couldn't wait to get to the end. Brilliant. Suitable for anyone who is a hopeless romantic.

Great lighthearted story not so great male voices

A nice easy listening book with some good twists and turns but narrator isn't good with the male voices as others have said.

I did enjoy it and pushing that aside a good book in all.
