Publisher's Summary

Sian Bishop has only ever experienced one moment of recklessness – a moment that resulted in her beloved son Rory. It’s not that she doesn’t love the outcome of that wild night, but since then she has always taken the safer route. So when dependable, devoted Richard suggests a move to the beautiful English countryside, she leaves the hustle and bustle of the city behind, and she throws herself into the picture-postcard cottage garden, her furniture restoration business, and a new life in the country. Her good intentions are torpedoed on a glorious summer’s evening with the arrival of Gus Berresford. One-time explorer and full-time heartbreaker, Gus is ridiculously exciting, wonderfully glamorous and a completely inappropriate love interest for a single mum. But Gus and Sian have met before…Sian has no use for a fling, she simply mustn’t fall in love with the most unlikely suitor ever to cross her path – even if he has now crossed her path twice. But who knows what can happen in a summer of love…

I just couldnt get into it

I tried for around 4 hours but just couldn't get into the story. The write-up and reviews were all positive but I just found that nothing happened. If you asked me to tell you what I listened to just a few hours ago, I cant remember - it just didn't spark an interest for me.

Maybe it was the narration which I didn't really enjoy - I like more of a Jilly Bond type voice. But, in saying that, I do think I'm in the minority as most people did seem to enjoy it.

A bit too predictable

I would not try another Katie Fforde book.

What about Jane McDowell’s performance did you like?

I really liked Jane McDowell's performance. She turned the book alive.

Was Summer of Love worth the listening time?

Yes

Disappointing narration

Excellent story but the narrator is very flat and lacks the ability to differentiate character's voices which makes it hard to follow and boring to listen to. Her attempt at the child's voice was laughable. Makes me more careful to listen to extracts on line before buying when it's a narrator I don't know.
