Summary

Welcome to Willoughby Close...a charming cluster of cozy cottages, each with a story to tell and a happy ending to deliver....

Harriet Lang had the perfect life, so she’s left reeling when everything is taken from her in one fell swoop. Suddenly, Harriet learns her beautiful farmhouse in the Cotswolds is double mortgaged, her husband Richard’s been unceremoniously fired - and he’s become a little too close to his young, sexy assistant.

Harriet moves into Willoughby Close with her three children, trying to hold her head up high. With the help of her neighbor and newfound friend Ellie Matthews, Harriet starts to rebuild her life - but dipping a toe in the dating pool feels strange, and meanwhile her children are struggling in different ways. She wonders if starting over is really possible.....

Then Willoughby Close begins to weave its healing magic on both her and her children, and Harriet begins to see a way forward. But when Richard reappears in her life, wanting to make amends, Harriet must make the painful decision about how much of the past can be forgiven - and what kind of future she is fighting for.

Really Enjoyable

I really enjoyed this book. The whole Wiioughby Close series.
If there is just one criticism it's that I don't understand why the narrator is American but the story is based in the UK. All the characters are English. I'm just baffled that's all.
It is a really easy listen.
I would recommend it.

Great book

A really gripping story that you can easily relate to. A great book in the Willoughby Close series as well.

The only disappointing element was an American narrating it. The story is set in the UK and admittedly the narrators accents were good however, some words are phrased differently and it sometimes took a while to figure out what she was talking about I.e. mobile (as in mobile phone) was pronounced “mo-bill” instead of “mo-byle”. A very minor point but still mildly irritating.

Keeping up with the Jones’s

How you’re expected to relate to the normal populous, living on a budget. With a stuck up personage, with her nose in the air. Blaming her husband for her running up a exorbitant credit card bill . On Harrods gifts for people she doesn’t like. And harping on about having to live in a three bedroom house with a garden. When other poor souls are homeless.
I had to stop reading this to keep my blood pressure down. So glad it was free , as I wouldn’t pay for it.

American narrator???????? WHY?

What a shame this story has to be told by an American actress????? Ruined it for me. I carried on until the end but as an avid reader/listener I found this so unbelievably annoying?

Story was bland. No hidden mystery. I wonder if I’d nodded off for some vital parts. Never again.

Spoiled by accent of reader

Annoying accent of reader. Why? It’s in the Cotswolds. Disappointed. Like the story though but not the reader.

Too many American things

Too many American things, can tell it’s written by an American. I think some research is needed for things that a British person would say. Nice story apart from that and the American narrator

Engaging

An engaging story that draws you in. Although I got used to the narrator she stood out rather than blended into the narrative. If I decide to buy any more of this author’s books, I will definitely read them rather than listen to this narrator again.

Lovely feel good story

I loved the story and all the characters. However I nearly gave up as the narrator is awful! She is so nasally that I first thought that maybe she had some sort of sinus infection and bizarrely the stuffy, nasal whine disappeared when she did an English accent. I will read the other books in the series but could not listen to another minute of her narration

Following the Narrator!

On Audible, I am now ordering books read by exceptional narrators, as I have often been put off by readers , especially women, with high pitched little girl voices. Authors whose books are read by Justine Eyre are fortunate indeed. Kate Hewitt has a series of books read by JE, so I am working my way through them. I enjoyed this light read, with believable, imperfect and likeable characters who evolve as the story proceeds. Enjoyable.
