Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of A Vintage Summer, written by Cathy Bramley and read by Colleen Prendergast.

A sparkling summer story that's full of surprises!

London has not been kind to Lottie Allbright. Realising it’s time to cut and run, she packs up and moves back home - but finds her family in disarray. In need of a new place to stay, Lottie takes up the offer of a live-in job managing a local vineyard. There’s a lot to learn - she didn’t even know grapes could grow so far north!

Butterworth Wines in the rolling Derbyshire hills has always been run on love and passion, but a tragic death has left everyone at a loss. Widowed Betsy is trying to keep the place afloat but is harbouring a debilitating secret. Meanwhile her handsome but interfering grandson, Jensen, is trying to convince her to sell up and move into a home.

Lottie’s determined to save Butterworth Wines, but with all this and an unpredictable English summer to deal with, it’ll be a challenge.

And that’s before she discovers something that will turn her summer - and her world - upside down....

Good story

Enjoyed this, my first one from Cathy, I will try some more. But not happy to listen to Colleen Pendergast particularly. If she can raise the end of her sentences rather than the repetitive downward inflection that meant I could not hear the ends of her sentences when in the car, maybe she will be better. Slight Brummie accent on all voices, but the story was enjoyable.

Delightful summer read!

Another beautifully read story by Colleen Prendergast, who never fails to deliver contrasting voices, tones and accents so you know which character speaks instantly. Well written story by Cathy Bramley with humour, excitement, a little sorrow but much happiness, perfect for a summer holiday.
I sincerely hope there is a sequel to this story, can’t wait to find out how the winery progresses!

Amazing book

This book was fantastic from start to end, the characters are so believable and you cannot help liking them all (except Harvey 😀) I didn’t want the story to end I wanted to continue to find out the goings on at Butterworth wines. Loved the fact the was an epilogue to tie everything together. Absolutely loved this book.

Jenson was a woos

The story itself showed promise but the weak characters let it down. Lotti was too perfect. Jenson was a woos, and his character seemed like an afterthought to make it a romance. The story plot about Buttersworth was interesting and I learned a lot about winemaking. Narrator did a good job, but Jenson voice was a bit feminine. Sorry.
