Summary

Love is an open door...except when it keeps slamming in your face.

Hopeless romantic Milly Rose has had her fair share of heartbreak. Obsessed with all things Disney, she refuses to give up on finding her Prince Charming - he’s out there somewhere, isn’t he? When Milly is given a job to investigate the origins of a historical building in the village of Clover’s Rest, she’s not sure what to expect. What she discovers takes her breath away - a beautiful real-life Cinderella castle, complete with turrets, a magnificent drawbridge and a very handsome owner...Cameron Heartstone. As Milly and Cameron begin to unearth the secrets of Clover Castle, they can’t ignore the intense chemistry building between them. But they’ve both been hurt badly before. Can they take a big leap of faith and find their own happily-ever-after?

A deliciously enchanting listen that will delight fans of Rachael Lucas, Lucy Diamond and Miranda Dickinson or anyone who has ever blubbed at a Disney movie. Who says real life can’t be a fairytale?

Issues with narrator

A good basic story - that seemed to get lost as we moved through the pages.
Most annoying was the the shrill narrators voice - and when it came to her putting on a mans voice ... it was terrible, almost comical - which to sum up made this audible read a fantasy far fetched piece

Silly romance

Far too silly and far fetched for me. Lots of mishaps and comedy moments but a few too many in such a short story. There was also lots of talk about sex all the way through it to the point that it felt a bit crude and seedy at times. Definitely couldn’t listen to this with the kids around!! Very disappointing as a previous book I’ve read by this author was very good (Sunrise over Sapphire Bay).

Narrator

This book had a lovely story but I find the voice of this narrator terrible I usually skip any book which she is involved with this one slipped through so I’m very disappointed.

I loved This

I absolutely loved Milly and Cameron's journey although I had to stop listening for a little bit at one point, as I got nervous butterflies, I had a feeling what was going to happen next and I didn't want it to. I didn't stop for long as I couldn't stop thinking about it.
I thought the narrator was good, at first I wasn't too sure but she totally suited Milly's lovely bouncy character. I would love to re visit Clover Castle in the future to catch up with all the characters.

Non stop smiles.

A silly romantic, that has you smiling from beginning to end. Not one for when the children are about.

Narrator sounds like a child

I just can't get further than Chapter 3. Terrible, whiney, don't waste your credits.

I'm actually so angry that I wasted credits on something this terrible. I can't tell you if the story is any good as I was just too distracted by the terrible narration.
