Publisher's Summary

When Jake tells Lyssa it's not working, she knows he's not talking about the toaster. Her immediate reaction is to sob into her pillow and wait for Jake to come to his senses. But slowly Lyssa begins to understand that's not an option. In a bid to escape, she embarks on a trekking holiday in Nepal. Lyssa needs to get away - it never occurred to her that she might fall in love.... When it's time to go home - back to reality and a very sheepish Jake - Lyssa is faced with the hardest choice of her life.

Enjoyable Story

You know how sometimes you want to just listen to a good story? Not a murder mystery, not a Sci Fi thriller, just a nice story. This is it. OK, it's a love story, but it's well written, there's a bit of adventure and several laugh out loud moments. It was one of those books where I looked for ways to find alone time to listen because I couldn't wait to hear what happened next. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Great story as always

This is one of the 1st carole Matthews books I read, so was excited to find out it was on audio. Haven't read it in ages so couldn't remember the plot straight away. But now listening to it I remember its good book to listen to while going for my walks , and Julia Barrie brings the books alive.I'm slowly buying all carole audio books as loving reading them but never get enough hours in the day to read.. so downloading a audio is great..

Enjoyable

A story of romance going wrong and a change of thoughts by getting on a plane to the other side of the world were romance starts again.

Made me want to see Nepal!

I liked the storyline and the images of Nepal were great but Julia Barrie’s narration was a bit off putting. I rate this as one of Carole Matthews best.

Not Carole Mathews best

I enjoyed this book but I’ve read better books by this author. The narrator was great at the British accents but her American accent was terrible. I can imagine it really grating on some people.

An enjoyable read

A cleverly written story that made me giggle out loud in parts which was a nice balance to the sad bits; the story line wasn't as predictable as you might originally think. The mixed American accent had me cringing a bit unfortunately. But overall a good book.
