Summary

Lou Winter is a lonely woman who no longer realises she's being taken advantage of - whether by her mother or unfaithful husband Phil. Then one day she spots a magazine article on clearing clutter. What begins as an earnest spring-clean soon spirals out of control. The more Lou lets go of, the more light can get to those painful places at the centre of her heart. When she meets hunky local man Tom Broom, she sees her philandering husband in a very different light. But, even with Tom's help, can Lou Winter manage to put the spring back into her step? And who knows where her newfound zest for the stripped-back life will take her next?

Delightfully down-to-earth heroine wins through

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It tells the story of Lou who copes with a domineering and not very faithful husband as well as family and so-called friends who do not value her true worth. One day she reads an article in a magazine claiming that clearing out one's unnecessary belongings is a good thing. She starts with her kitchen drawers but that was only the beginning and soon she realises that it is not just possessions that can clutter one's life. Beautifully read, it makes one laugh but also makes one think.

Great Book!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would. It was very entertaining, good storyline and was interesting throughout. The characters were very believable. Good book for all age groups

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favourite character was Lou. She was a believable character who had her own hangups and insecurities, mainly because of her absolute male chauvinist, slimy, horrible husband who was an obvious control freek. You will just hate him form the start and will just look forward to him getting his 'come uppance'

Have you listened to any of Colleen Prendergast’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes, I have listened to another, by the same author and she is a pleasure to listen to. Her different voices and accents are very good, and her pitch and pace is excellent..

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The outcome of the whole story was moving (I won't give anything away) The inevitable demise of Phil (the horrible husband) was a real pleasure!!

Any additional comments?

Likeable characters, good storyline that made me want to keep listening. The author obviously likes catering or cafes and also dogs. There was a cafe and a dog in the last book of hers that I listened to and being a dog lover, I found it a nice addition to the tale

Really enjoyable.

Would you listen to A Spring Affair again? Why?

Yes I almost did not buy this book because the description did not sound appealing, however I was desperate when on holidays and used a credit purely because it was a Milly Johnson book. I was pleasantly surprised it was great.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Lou because she went for what she wanted and got it.

Have you listened to any of Colleen Prendergast’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes she is always great.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No it was a light happy read very enjoyable but not moving.

loved this book

This was a great story, well written and read. Characters were very believable and had depth and personality. Nice long story, I was sorry to get to the end. Concept was also believable and interesting. My dogs got extra walks just so I could take my iphone and listen to the next few chapters!
