Narrated by Leanne Yau

Run Time: 1 hr and 34 mins


A young British woman (Ava) stays in a beach house over the summer with a friend (Erica). She realizes some things need to change in her life. She falls for the handsome, irritating handyman and bookstore worker. (Don’t remember his name.)

Additional Comments:

  • Leanne Yau does British accents very well, so she fit the story excellently. I usually put books at 2.5x, but had to slow it down to 2x to be able to comprehend anything, but that’s neither here nor there. The performance was certainly a strong point in the experience.
  • Some stories are great for audio. Others, like this, should be adjusted before being shoehorned into the medium. The only reason for act whatever, scene whatever to be read is a lame attempt at making it like a screenplay. The tie to the title comes in about the last paragraph.
  • I probably would have rated this higher if I liked the main character more. She’s whiny, annoying, and rude most of the time. That makes her realistic, but not somebody I want to spend time with even in written form.
  • Content warnings: a few random curses.


If you’re a die-hard, (relatively) clean romance fan who loves British accents, this is a good choice for you.
