Publisher's Summary

The Gardens of Delight brochure promises the opportunity to visit some of the most beautiful gardens in Italy. For Lucy, the chance to go to Italy offers more than just gardens.

Helen and her wealthy husband have just moved into the Old Rectory. With her husband spending so much time away from home, Helen throws herself into caring for the garden. But Helen needs help.

Conrad isn't the least bit interested in gardening. His life revolves around work and humouring Mac, his elderly uncle. Mac wants to go on the tour, but only if Conrad accompanies him. Reluctantly, Conrad agrees.

"Anything for a peaceful life," he concedes. But a peaceful life is the last thing any of them are in for....

    "An enjoyment"

    Enjoyed the little twists in her life. It was a light happy read. I don't want to give away any of the details, but I can say it was nice to see friendships of all ages mixed.

    "Very fun to listen to."
    What did you love best about Gardens of Delight?

    Erica James has wonderful descriptions of the landscaping.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gardens of Delight?

    The way she wrote about the Italian gardens will always be with me. I wanted to buy a plane ticket to Lake Como right then and there!


    Which character – as performed by Jilly Bond – was your favorite?

    The Italian lover.


    If you could take any character from Gardens of Delight out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Oh yes, the Italian lover...

    Story
    "Flowers of the Imagination"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Unpredictable plot twists and believable characters made this a journey worth taking. There was a love of place and people that made this a comforting, escapist read without being too neat and tidy. Like the wild spaces and unexpected scents and vistas in a garden of delights I felt encouraged to explore by an expert hand.

    "First ever Erica James and it was a Delight"
    What did you like most about Gardens of Delight?

    I loved this author's story and the narrator's voice was perfect . I was interested to see the stories unfold and how they merged and added new characters to the mix.This was my first Erica James but will certainly not be my last. Once started I could not put my iPod down. Lucky for me I bought another Erica James at the same time so it is time I was off to read another from Ms. James - looking forward to reading many more.


    What other book might you compare Gardens of Delight to, and why?

    I have not ready books like this , I usually really murder mystery but this was a refreshing change and one I was so glad I decided to buy


    Have you listened to any of Jilly Bond’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No never but I will search for her in future


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Gardens and their owners ....


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it
