Publisher's Summary

Flora is forced to move back to the tiny island of Mure from the bright lights of London. It's tough: even the beautiful landscapes and bright blue sea can't lift her spirits - she's too busy looking after her dad and her feckless brothers. Then she chances upon her mum's collection of recipes and begins to cook her way through it. As she reconnects with her family and the place she was born, might she also find herself?

    "Different but brilliant!"

    At first this book was a bit slow, I was 1/3rd in before it grabbed me and from that moment until the end I didn't stop listening and just had to do the rest of it in one day... its style is different from what Jenny Colgan normally writes as it's written from 2 characters perspectives, I think had it not been this way I wouldn't have understood the motives of the second character or understood him at all. It made him more rounded and more human and I think that's what made the book so much more interesting. Absolutely a must read if your a JC fan. I think this is her best book to date.

    "enjoyed it mostly"

    It was an enjoyable story, but I did struggle to get through it as I didn't like the voices done by the narrator particularly the child's voice.

    "Would make a great film"

    I enjoyed it. A bit predictable, but enjoyable . I found flora a little irritating, but loved everything else! Finton and Eck! Definitely worth listening to.

    Story
    "Quite Good"
    Would you listen to The Summer Seaside Kitchen again? Why?

    Probably not as I know the story, so no surprises.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    It was a bit different from her normal books as less recipes (but still too many) and more story. I would have preferred more about the business.

    Least interesting - the stupid story bit about how the male hero turns in to a completely different person for the woman he loves. That sort of rubbish.


    Have you listened to any of Sarah Barron’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    There could easily be a follow up. There was a lot of character plots running through, but all fairly predictable. The ends of this type of book are always predictable. Men acting completely out of character - so annoying. Just write something more realistic.

    "Really Hard to Stick With This one"
    Any additional comments?

    Too much of a "cookie cutter" book. There is nothing to catch the reader's attention, other than the faint hope that the plot would show itself. The unfortunate thing the books ends before anything interesting happens.
