At first this book was a bit slow, I was 1/3rd in before it grabbed me and from that moment until the end I didn't stop listening and just had to do the rest of it in one day... its style is different from what Jenny Colgan normally writes as it's written from 2 characters perspectives, I think had it not been this way I wouldn't have understood the motives of the second character or understood him at all. It made him more rounded and more human and I think that's what made the book so much more interesting. Absolutely a must read if your a JC fan. I think this is her best book to date.

This book was more than I expected it to be from the title and blurb.
Having recently cruised around the British isles, visiting Orkney I really enjoyed the descriptions of the light and air of the far north. It is indeed like a cold clear glass of water.
The romantic story line was a little predictable, but the characters of the island people were good. I loved the references to the myths of the north.
The book was brought to life by the narrator, I don't know if I would have enjoyed it as much if I had read it
I found this book to be unrealistic, even by chick-lit standards! Usually that doesn't bother me but the characters here were not that interesting and the narration was pretty ordinary. Read the 'Little Beach Street Bakery' series instead.
This is an easy listening book with an enjoyable storyline and a cast of relatable characters.
