Not the usual narrator for Milly Johnson

What would have made The Birds and the Bees better?

I didn't realise when I bought this that the narrator is not the usual Colleen Prendergast.
Becky Hindley does a dreadful Scottish accent. The hero, Adam is from the Scottish highlands so quite why his accent swings from VERY broad Glasgow to upper class east coast Edinburgh is a complete mystery and made him sound a complete idiot - it was hard to believe that Stevie would ever fall for such a moron. It quite spoilt the book for me and I bought it for my Kindle instead. I'd recommend listening to the sample closely if you happen to be Scottish.

What did you like best about this story?

Milly Johnson is always wonderful - which I couldn't have told from this narration.

Would you be willing to try another one of Becky Hindley’s performances?

NO

Yes, but again I dont want to spoil the story for anyone new to the book :)

Enjoyable read

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

I would recommend this audiobook to anyone it is a light enjoyable story.

What did you like best about this story?

The way Stevie was portrayed throughout the story.

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

She was very good.

Any additional comments?

I buy every Milly Johnson book you offer. Every book is different and some I have read several times particularly "Here Come The Girls" it was my favourite. However it was the last book of Milly Johnsons I purchased because of the description, I was not sure if it would be as good as her previous books.
I only bought it because of the author and I could not find anything else that appealed and it was so much better than expected.

Loved it Loved it Loved it!!!!

It took just 10mins for me to be hooked - I really loved this story and just adored all the characters - you cant go past a huge but gentle red-headed Scot.

The narration is perfect and the accents bring life to everyone.

I really do recommend this book - Millie Johnson has done it again.
