Publisher's Summary

Before the beach hut...there was Honeycote.

The Liddiard family have lived in Honeycote for generations. But that just might be changing....

Mickey Liddiard adores his wife, Lucy - so why he is cheating on her with Kay? James Liddiard has been in love with Lucy for years. So when he discovers Mickey is being unfaithful, could this be his opportunity? Kay is most definitely not happily married - it was the money which first attracted her to her husband. But now, could Mickey hold the key to her heart and her happiness?

In the seemingly idyllic village of Honeycote, ambition, greed and revenge lurk just beneath the perfect landscape....

Very predictable

The storyline was incredibly predictable, not the best of Veronica Henry's work. Within the first hour of listening you will know the ending.

Extremely disappointing

Continuous couplings in a weak storyline. I consider it an insult to an intelligent listener

Great story, grabbed my attention from beginning t

If you could sum up Honeycote in three words, what would they be?

Sorry it's finished.

What did you like best about this story?

A story about family life, good characters with interesting backgrounds

Which character – as performed by Rachel Atkins – was your favourite?

Lucy, but all the characters are interesting and turn out differently from what you presume them to be in the beginning

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes it was unlike others I have read recently, I listened to it. Over a period of about 48 hours.

Any additional comments?

The narrator has a very relaxing voice, easy to listen to. The story keeps you wanting to know what happens next, it is one of those books that leaves you wanting more even when you have finished it.

A nice winter story

I like to snuggle up with a book during the Christmas holidays and that how I ended up picking Honeycote. I really liked it, someone remarked they thought it was clear from the first chapters where the story would lead but I don't agree, there were many small storylines and plots. If you like the Beach Hut you'll probably like this although it leaves a little more open endings.
The one thing I did thought strange were some very explicit sexual descriptions which I suppose could put some readers off but they are not very frequent.
Not Henry's best work but enjoyable nonetheless.

Enjoyable family saga

Where does Honeycote rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I enjoy family sagas with interesting characters - and Honeycote is definitely one of my favourites. It was a story that I wasn't ready to finish - I wanted to continue finding out about the lives of the 'people' I got to know!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked Lucy and James - there was more softness with them than most of the other adults!

What does Rachel Atkins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Rachel read the story well and her intonation made it easy to understand that characters and their motivation

Any additional comments?

Well worth reading/listening to!

Had to ear it twice.

I heard better narrators. She made things difficult to understand. Normally I get comfy with the voice after a wile not this time.

Not my favourite Veronica H

I have loved all of VH’s books to date and particularly the Beach Hut pair. But this time I didn’t enjoy the book nearly as much. There was not one character that I took a liking to at - no one that i rooted for. They all had their good bits and their bad bits. Hard to enjoy when there was no clear villain or under dog. A so so story.
