A Spring Affair | [Milly Johnson]

A Spring Affair

Lou Winter is a lonely woman who no longer realises she's being taken advantage of - whether by her mother or unfaithful husband Phil. Then one day she spots a magazine article on clearing clutter. What begins as an earnest spring-clean soon spirals out of control. The more Lou lets go of, the more light can get to those painful places at the centre of her heart.

Publisher's Summary

Lou Winter is a lonely woman who no longer realises she's being taken advantage of - whether by her mother or unfaithful husband Phil. Then one day she spots a magazine article on clearing clutter.

What begins as an earnest spring-clean soon spirals out of control. The more Lou lets go of, the more light can get to those painful places at the centre of her heart. When she meets hunky local man Tom Broom, she sees her philandering husband in a very different light. But, even with Tom's help, can Lou Winter manage to put the spring back into her step? And who knows where her newfound zest for the stripped-back life will take her next?

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes...I couldn't stop listening. I spent a majority of my time listening and waiting for Lou to be happy. Not your typical rom com but it makes you realize not everyone married is happily married.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Spring Affair?

    Can't say without giving the book awake.

    "A really great story to listen to."
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Spring Affair to be better than the print version?

    I don't know have not read the story


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Spring Affair?

    Some lines really made you chuckle..........well read just an enjoyable story away from the day to day life. A bit predictable at the end but a good soapie.


    What about Colleen Prendergast’s performance did you like?

    She is a lovely reader and you easily get into the story. A good reading voice.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Dreams can come true.

    Story
    "I just love Milly Johnson books!"

    As always, I so enjoy Milly Johnson's books. Her stories are so easy to follow, funny, heart warming etc and this one ticks all the boxes.

    It is a light read but sometimes you just need the simple stories. As with most of Milly's books she always has that "secret" which keeps you reading as you have to find out what happens and this one is no exception.

    It centres around a bunch of girl friends who go on a cruise and testimony to the writing, after finishing the book, I jumped on a cruising holiday website.

    If you love Chick-lit, don't miss out on this one,

    "Very enjoyable"

    Characters were good with a likable protagonist. Pace was not fast but not plodding, and it was predictable but not in a way that detracts from the story. It is not difficult to guess how the story is going to end, but the journey to that end is very satisfying.

    I loved this book. The story is very believable and entertaining. I'll definitely be checking out more from this author. The narration was wonderful too. I'm so sad it's over.

    "a great 'woman's" story!"

    This was a very entertaining book, The concept of clearing out the clutter in her house at the same time as she clears out the clutter in her life, is a very enjoyable read.
    The English accent added greatly to the story. I could relate to the main character and found myself caught up in her emotions of her marriage ending and a new life starting.

    "Slow at First but ended up to be a good story"
    Would you listen to A Spring Affair again? Why?

    No but I did listen to the first few chapters after finishing.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Spring Affair?


    What does Colleen Prendergast bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?


    If you could rename A Spring Affair, what would you call it?
