Summary

Heather Bailey has been in charge of Silver Arches, the prestigious London shopping center, for several years. Financial turmoil brings a new investor to secure the future, and Heather finds herself playing office politics with the notoriously difficult entrepreneur Leo Flynn.

Walking a fine line between standing her ground and being willing to accept change, Heather has her work cut out for her. When Leo demands that his daughter get a job at Silver Arches, things become even harder. 

Scarlett Flynn has never fit in. Not in the army, not in her father’s firm, not even in her own family. So starting work at Silver Arches won’t be any different, will it?

The right fit

I think by far this story has captured my heart, how wonderful it was to first read and now listen to a story that breaks from the ‘norm’ and shows some love to people on the spectrum.

More than just a love story it gives the reader/listener a story about seeing someone, about accepting someone, about growing with someone. And ok yeah we do get a love story too. But it isn’t the main thing. In my regard Amanda excels in giving the reader so much more than just love, she gives us a different view, a diffrent voice. And that is a nice thing to have.

The voices again to me were a nice fit to the characters, they really added to the story. A nice fit together.

Amazing

The story represented autistic person very well. Not all autistic people are the same, and the characters referred to it more than once, which I really appreciate.
I don't know how not-autistic people would feel about Scarlet, but I loved getting to know her. She is amazing, Heather is very nice and caring, and the supporting characters were all interesting and funny.
The writing is great and I would like to know how Amanda Radley managed to write an autistic character with so much understanding and compassion.

I really enjoyed this audiobook!

The author did an excellent job describing the challenges and joys of navigating a relationship with someone with Autism. As a parent of a child on the spectrum my heart went out to Scarlet and her dad. I loved how Heather was able to accept Scarlet and not try to “fix” her. The narration was also great! A sweet and touching love story and in some ways much more.

I loved it

I didn’t think I would, but I did. It is a slow yet fast story, it is important because it brings out autism. Narration is excellent.

Best writer and great narrator!!

Amanda radley is my absolute favorite writer! I have been waiting for this book’s audiobook!
I enjoyed the audiobook! This narrator is new for me and still I enjoyed it very much! However, I prefer Amy putt as the narrator for Amanda Radleys book. She reflects the rumors perfectly!
Anyway I enjoyed it!
