Publisher's Summary

Pru Plum is the owner of a famous Mayfair bakery. She wears Chanel and her hair is expensively cut. Few would believe that she turned sixty-six last year. But Pru is not the confident, successful businesswoman she appears. She has done shameful things to get to where she is today. And she will do anything to protect the secrets of her past - especially now she has finally fallen in love...

Well worth listening

A Little Love by Amanda Prowse has been a delight to listen to and I think I just may have found a new author to enjoy!

It is extremely well narrated by Julia Franklin, her voices vary, and she had the right accents, phrasing and speed to make it absorbing to listen to. She really brings the story alive.
Prue and Millie - cousins - are two tough birds originally from the East End, they have been through the mill of life and have on the whole a very loyal relationship with each other.
Prue is a kind and compassionate woman, she is also a little wily and can lead Millie where she needs to go. Prue is also vulnerable and open to the new, even if it invites hurt.
There are interesting side characters, one or two not so likeable ones, but they are balanced by some that are wonderful.
The plot moves a long at a good pace and there are twists and turns that make the reader wonder what is going to happen next.
Their bakery sounds really, really.... delicious! Wish there was a Plum Patisserie near me!
Readers who enjoyed The Seafront Tearooms by Vanessa Greene would I think be very happy with this book too. I am off to seek more by Amanda Prowse. Christmas For One I see takes up the story of Meg, a character in this book, so that might be next. However it doesn't have the same narratory so will give it a little time in between.

Good, easy to read story

If ur into baking this is for u.... Great descriptions that add to the story line. Not too many characters to keep track of and a couple of twists along to way to keep it interesting. Good narration and written at a good pace, ur not waiting too long to hear what's happening next. Well worth a relaxing listen

Stick with it

Takes a little while to get into story, but ends up being a rather good read.

Such a lovely story

I really enjoyed this book, I listened to it on holiday and found myself wanting to absorb every word. Whereas some stories take a while to get into a big high or low this book goes there quite early so you can be gripped by how everything unfolds. Great narration too.

A wasted credit!

SO disappointed.! Amanda Prowse is one of my favourite authors and I wasn't able to get passed 1/2 way through chapter 3 because of the irritating rhythm of speech of the narrator.
Amanda usually narrates her own books which is a treat as she will be very aware of where to place the emphasis of certain words. This narrator talked too fast and sped up in each sentence - I was not able to follow the story at all. I will certainly avoid any books narrated by Julia Franklin in future!

Really struggled with this one out of the series..

So glad I persevered although it took me 9 attempts...... it was worth it in the end. I absoutley love Amanda Prowse and have all her audible books, to start with I would only listen to the ones that Amanda read but over time I've listened to others read her books but they all niggle me!!!!! This was part of a series so I had to listen to it in order at one stage I was tempted to leave it out but glad I didn't. x

an easy read

Prue runs a first class patisserie which is her life,then life starts to intrude. l enjoyed myself reading about her more mature years which are often left alone in writing and felt that it was dealt with in just the right way.
