I have not read the print version
Gemma she was very believable
Lucinda was well read.
An interesting storyline all characters worked well together tho different story lines.
I would have liked another chapter or an epilogue.
Yes it was a great holiday read. Light hearted and enjoyable.
When Flick proposed.
She is excellent.
It was perfectly named
I loved it.
If I had never purchased it.
I just finished reading Carole Matthews A Cottage by the Sea and loved it so much that when I finished it and saw a new book by her I just purchased it immediately.
However big mistake I did not listen to the sample. The narrator is dreadful.The story boring I have tried three nights running to read this but cannot get past the first hour.A 70 year old mother wanting a boob job her husband has just announced he is gay. The adult son has naked men in his room the daughter is lazy, whatever was I thinking not checking this dreadful book out.I loved Carole Matthews Summer Daydreams as well which is probably why I did not checkthis book out. I tend to purchase by the author unfortunately this does not always work except for Jill Mansell or Milly Johnson never have they written a bad book.
Jane Collingwood preferably altho I do not think even she could have saved this book.
Don't bother with this one.
It is just a light hearted story a fun read.
Flinty's performance was excellent.
It's perfectly named
Ali McNamara's next book From Notting Hill to New York Actually is just as good as this one.
I purchased this book in desperation as there is nothing new from my favourite authors.
It was so light I just kept skipping many parts just to get through it. The storyline was just not for me.
I have already purchased Christmas at the Cupcake cafe at the same time and only listened to a couple of chapters and found it boring so jumped to this book.
So if that one is similar to this no I would not.
I like a book with a bit of substance but there was nothing much to this at all.
Jane Collingwood is fantastic and the ONLY reason I listened to the book at all.
Disappointment that once again I have wasted a credit.
Reading a paper copy.
I have tried to listen to the story quite a few times however the narrator is just so
bad I am unable to listen to the book.
I cannot believe this book was published with this narrator, she sounds like a kindergarten child playing a part in a school play. I hoped after the first couple of chapters she might improve but in some places she gets much worse.
I feel so sorry for the author the story may well be fine but I doubt too many people will listen to the book. I forwarded to chapter seven to see if things improved and burst out laughing at the american accent of the hotel reception it was just so pathetic.
Never not even if they were free.
Disappointment that I have wasted a credit.
Breakfast at Darcy's was an enjoyable light novel. I purchased this after reading Ali McNamara's other novel from "Notting Hill to New York Actually" which I really enjoyed. The setting for this novel on a remote island off the coast of Ireland is different. I found the story interesting but felt there could have been more detail on the roles the people coming to live on the island were going to play. There were areas for instance, Darcy going to buy chocolate at the shop, what shop? In the planning for the island settlement there had been no mention of the shop. I would have preferred a bit more detail, however having said that I really enjoyed the book it was light and a bit different.
I loved the way the author bought the characters to life I felt you really got to know and like them.
I couldn't compare it with other chic lit novels this was not your usual romance more of an light interesting story with a touch of romance.
Beth Chalmer's performance was fine. I have not heard her other performances.
I am not sure this title was the right one. I feel it implies Darcy may have run a cafe or something. What else to call it? I do not know.
The colourful descriptions of New York City thruout the book you felt you were there.
The many different twists, at first I was not sure about this book but once Scarlett and Oscar arrived in NYC I did not want it to end.
The last scene the treasure hunt.
This was a good easy listen nothing too deep but I really enjoyed it. Real chick lit, if this is the genre you enjoy this is for you.
Jane Collingwood is fabulous this is the main reason I purchased this book. No I would not buy another book from this author.
This is possibly the worst book I have ever read out of the couple of hundred of books I have purchased on this site. I downloaded it last night and after the first few chapters I just could not listen to any more. I deleted it from my ipod. I have rarely done this with the books I buy. Mia finds out her boyfriend is obviously having an affair. The story then just becomes ridiculous firstly she just happens to find where his girlfriend works then lives so on and on. This girl is looking for a flatmate Mia just happens to be offered the key to this girls flat from a neighbour and be able to enter her flat, then every thing that happens is just so far fetched the things she does are totally unbelievable. There was no one in the book from what I read that the author even made likeable. I think you get the picture.
I love this genre and only purchased this author as there is nothing available under the usual authors I buy. I already have all of Jill Mansell, Tasmina Perry Tilly Bagshawe Louise Bagshaaw, Patricia Scanlan, Danielle Steel, Milly Johnson. I buy all of these authors as they become available but this does not happen regularly. If you enjoy the work of these authors you will be disappointed with this as the quality of this book is nothing like the quality of these authors.
Yes she is always fabulous. Even she could not save this book for me.
All of them. There was nothing I liked about this book.
The paperback was good just does not do it for me as an audio book.
I just found this book did not keep me interested. I did read the hard copy some years ago which was much better and I enjoyed it, however I have not been able to listen to the audio version. Have tried several times but given up on it.
I wasted my credit. I love Caroline Lee she is terrific.
Max she was such a strong character, altho the other two girls were good characters.
Bel's wedding surprise then Max's wedding, both surprises.
It was a perfect name for this book.
A lovely warm romantic novel just loved it. The story was good as was the narration. All Millie's books are great and it is a pity there are no more availableon Audible I much prefer to buy audiobooks but will have to go to paperbacksfor the rest of her novels.
