Summary

Escape the cold winter nights with Sunday Times Top Five best seller Heidi Swain's Summer at Skylark Farm!

Amber is a city girl at heart. So when her boyfriend Jake suggests they move to the countryside to help out at his family farm, she doesn't quite know how to react. But work has been hectic and she needs a break so she decides to grasp the opportunity and make the best of it.

Dreaming of organic orchards, paddling in streams and frolicking in fields, Amber packs up her things and moves to Skylark Farm. But life is not quite how she imagined - it's cold and dirty and the farm buildings are dilapidated and crumbling.

But Amber is determined to make the best of it and throws herself into farm life. But can she really fit in here? And can she and Jake stay together when they are so different?

A story of love in the countryside from the Sunday Times best-selling author of the The Cherry Tree Café and Sleigh Rides and Silver Bells at the Christmas Fair.

More binge easy listening...

Love the community Heidi Swain cleverly builds up in each book. Easy going & predictable - but perfect for relaxing. Beautifully read by Karen Cass. On to the next book & headphones ready as the New Year house clear out begins tomorrow!

*Changes*

Meet Amber who has a very busy life and at work she is the one with all the contacts. It plays havoc with her personal life as she is called night or day. If you want last minute tickets be it a holiday at all the sought after locations, or whatever she knows someone who will make it happen.

One day she meets Jake, he is the brother of the office lothario Dan, where Dan is pristinely dressed etc Jake is disheveled yet makes it work and Amber falls for him. He usually works on a farm and he is at the office for a break. So after some time he asks her to move with him to the farm. In her her head she envisions country life magazine but it is far from what greets her. One thing she omits to tell Jake is that her boss not want to let her go and has given her 6 months to decide. Will it come back to haunt her?

As Amber gets used to life in the country she faces a blast from Jake’s past who will do anything to cause a wrench between them coupled with misunderstandings, disagreements and a life changing event it made for a great easy read. Will Amber & Jake be able to make it work

Some of the characters from book one “The Cherry Tree Cafe’ made an appearance and it was a lot of fun as I loved the characters even the difficult ones.

Delight and suspense

This author has the wonderful knack of transporting the listener right alongside the characters. Would love to see all these Winthorp novels in a tv series.

Another Brilliant Book by Heidi Swain

I love books by Heidi Swain. She never disappoints.
They have good stories, with the odd twist & turn along the way, some laughs & some happy tears.
They are such an easy listen.
I would definitely recommend it.
