Publisher's Summary

Love is a complicated thing...

Lottie Carlyle is happy enough. Living in a beautiful cottage with her two adorable - sometimes - kids in an idyllic village, on good terms with her ex-husband, and with friends all around, everything is going just fine. But when she meets her new boss, her peaceful world is thrown into delightful, exciting, and frustrating chaos. Tyler is perfect for Lottie, but her kids do not agree. To make matters worse, the handsome and mysterious Seb appears on the scene, intriguing - and distracting - Lottie and charming her children, making it more and more difficult for her to make up her mind....

What the Critics Say

"Very nicely done.... Jill Mansell's chorus of sharp-witted youth, shaking sticks at the foibles of their elders, is delightful." (Daily Express)

"A smashing read that both delights and surprises the reader." (The Sun)

    "Nice story, bad American accent"

    I always enjoy Jill Mansell's stories, but this one was harder because of the poor portrayal of the American accents in the story which I found distracting.

    Story
    "Narration was good, story was OK"

    I was attracted to this story because like Lottie, I too am a single mother and I have a great relationship with my ex. Lottie is comfortable with her ex and even with her ex's girlfriend. I also like that Lottie is described physically as someone who dresses casually, is curvy and also likes to dress up when the occasion calls for it. She seems like a real person.

    The one thing that drove me crazy about Lottie and her ex is that their children have NO MANNERS. If a child of mine lacks manners at any moment, I don't hesitate to call them out and correct them. Lottie's children have no discretion and she and her ex don't set boundaries for the children. It's the whole I-can't-date-you-because-my-children-won't-allow-it-even-though-we-fancy-the-pants-off-each-other scenario.

    The smaller stories that accompany Lottie's are endearing--a dying employer and a childless woman. I love Cressida, and her tentative steps into romance.

    The one thing I did not buy was the American characters' choice of words when speaking. A lot of British idioms sounded strange coming from them. It didn't sound like something an American would say. The other thing that was strange was talk of dollars instead of pounds, words that were substituted for an American audience.

    I liked the narrator, Anna Parker-Naples, and she was pretty good at distinguishing the characters from each other.

    I am a total audiobook addict! I travel quite a bit for work and listen to them while I drive. Always searching for a good author to follow

    Any additional comments?

    This was a lovely and easy story. It had some great characters which I really enjoyed. I wasn't a huge fan of the kids in this book. I found them really whinny and annoying. The rest of them I loved.
    Well worth a listen :)

    "This book puts the comedy in romantic comedy!"

    This book is so entertaining that my husband even enjoyed the snippets that he was forced to listen to in my car.
