Enjoyable short story

I really enjoyed this short audio book and have listened to it several times since I bought it. I thought the narration was good and really made it enjoyable to listen too.

I didn't think the length of the audio book was bad at all, when you listen to the story you don't even think about it. I also like to have audio books that aren't always long as its a nice length to listen to in one sitting.

I really enjoyed this book and would happily recommend to others. If you like Chick Lit & Romance then I am sure you'll like this. The other authors I have listened are Jane Green, Cecelia Ahern, Freya North for example and I would say if you like them you'll probably enjoy this as well.

Book bum

Could make a good story but a bit disappointing as love this author. Wasn't keen on the narrator who was lacking animation at times.
