What if you had always dreamed of something more? Nell McNamara has a happy life: her boyfriend, Olly, adores her, their four-year-old daughter, Petal, is the centre of their world, and Nell has a steady job in the local chip shop. When the chippy needs a makeover, Nell jumps at the chance to unleash the creativity fizzing inside her. Inspired by what she can achieve - and encouraged by the very best friends a girl can have - Nell is determined to try something new. Waving goodbye to the chip shop, she starts up a new business making her own line of must-have handbags, which are soon flying off the shelves. It seems Nell's dreams are finally coming true, but her success doesn't come without a price. Before too long, Nell has to ask herself if it's really possible to have it all….
Full of fun, love, and laughter, soak up the sunshine with Summer Daydreams.

"Really enjoyed this book"
The audio edition was much better for me as I travel a lot with work and helps pass the time on the motorway. Also Jane Collingwood is great bringing the characters to life with the different voices.
Reminded me of The Girl's Guide to Homemaking by Amy Bratley
Nell was my favourite character.
Definitely would happily have sat and listened to this book in one sitting.
Was sorry when it ended
"Escape, Relax & Laugh Out Loud"
This is light hearted, fun and refreshing. The story line is very simple, easy to read, even the books 4 year old daughter makes you giggle, My husband even admitted he couldnt help but listen and laugh when I had it on loud speaker. It also has a good moral behind the story.
Would reccomend for light read , on the beach or holidays or even just an escape and relax time. Other similar stlye books Ive read are the Shopaholics series by Sophie Kinsella.
The great escape book! A perfect airplane, or beach read... Really cared about the characters. Highly recommended!
I really enjoyed this book. It was well written and I like the main character Nell. She was inspirational. A good story and listened to it over a couple of days on holiday.
The story is a bit weak and unbelievable but would be easy listening if the ridiculous voice of the narrator didn't make me dread every time the little girl spoke, I think she needs to listen to how children really speak before ruining anybody else's work.
An enjoyable listen. I felt all the highs and lows of the story. A great ending with some predictable conclusions.
"Love love love this!"
My first ever review but thoroughly enjoyed listening to the story of Nell's life and how her dreams come to fruition. Petal is adorable and I loved the narrator too.
Spent another 2 days doing nothing as couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next, and through grit and determination any is possible and little petal what a joy xx well read and kept me gripped till the end xx would make a great chick flick xx
There was so many twists and turns in the book and there didn't need to be, which to be honest were a bit predictable. I also felt the writing lacked description, there were a number of times where a scene that could have been elaborated on perhaps in place of the never ending dramas.
I won't to rule it out, but it won't be my first choice.
Not sure, I found her voice a little grating at times
There are too many to choose from...
