Publisher's Summary

Being married to a celebrity isn't all it's cracked up to be, especially when that celebrity has a very public affair with his co-star....

Alice McBride is determined that the one thing she won't lose in her marriage breakup is Borne Manor, her beloved home, but she gets more than she bargained for when she rents it out for the summer and a sexy cowboy comes to stay.

Country music star Robinson Duff has had his own share of heartbreak and needs somewhere quiet to hide out for the summer. Neither Alice nor Robinson are in any position for romance; the timing is terrible and they're both rebounding like out of control frisbees.

Can a holiday romance help mend their broken hearts. Or will it just make things even worse when the long hot summer comes to its inevitable end?

FAB book & was sad when it came to the end!

Initially I didn’t like the voice of the narrator but I quickly got used to it and couldn’t stop listening to it. Great escapism and entertaining. Easy to become fond of the characters too. Will definitely seek out more books from Kat French- and will probably listen to the story again. May even buy the hard copy to read!!

Great narrative, loved the accents!
Brilliant story, from an old porn star, wigs, a talking bird, cow boy singer, nutty ex's and a bit of sunshine and romance. what more could you ask for? loved it, highly recommended

loved it!

I loved the characters and story and didn't want it to end. Penelope was the perfect reader for this story, just fabulous, she highlighted the humour perfectly. I'll definitely listen to this book again, always the sign of a real gem.

As the Title suggests A summer romance tale..

This was a very pleasant up lifting and at times funny story of a unexpected summer romance.
I totally enjoyed listening to it while i drove to & from work, i would recommend it to others for light reading .
i also felt it was very well narrated.
