A book that has a 4.5 star rating should be much better than this one. The author goes to great lengths to give the main character a horrible past with PTSD, and then it's "all better" from meeting the right guy? Nope.
I felt like I was back in the era of the 80s paperback romance novel. It was an ok story but predictable, with ok characters that were predictable, with a sweet ending that was, yup, predictable.Nothing really exciting or exceptional about this one. That being said I am not sorry I listened to it and may find a lazy afternoon where I don't want to concentrate to hard and will listen again, maybe. Anna Fields did a respectable job narrating.
I would have liked a bit more suspense, but this was a fun read. Recommended for listening when you don't want to have to focus on the book.
The book was an easy read/listen. Romance/Drama with a bit of mystery. I totally enjoyed it although it certainly wasn't intellectually stimulating (not what I was looking for). there was a bit of mystery and drama in it. I can't say the story was all that believable, but if you are looking for a book to simply 'take you away' and entertain you then I would recommend this.
Yes ... I would recommend it as long as others realized it is chic lit ... easy read.
Love Anna Fields as a narrator!
Anna Fields is the best to have read a story. Her sarcasm comes through just beautifully!
Phoebe is my favorite charactor...Smart, beautiful and sexy but totally innocent!
Very much so. It is nice to see how the characters are developed.
Top rank since it was my first
I could pick up at any point and get it!
The development of the main character took awhile but it turned out to be a pretty good story line. I did not like all the voices the narrator used but overall it was interesting enough to make you want to keep listening.
"I wear a fez now, fez's are cool"
Charming, Fun, Entertaining
The funeral was cringe worthy yet hilarious.
As usual Anna Fields does a good job. Only issue is her voicing of the males she tends to make them sound a bit over the top.
This was the 3rd SEP book I had read in the 90's and I loved it as much as I loved it then. I liked the characters, and really felt that while Pheobe did everything in her power to appear the bimbo she was one of the more strong characters I have encountered. Her story is very powerful and sad.
I didn't think there needed to be a big bad but there was. Otherwise the story was vastly entertaining and a book I will either re-listen to or re-read many times over.
Wonderful way to pass the time! Great story that will tug at your heartstrings, make you laugh out loud and leave you wanting more. I'm looking forward to reading the other books in the series. Excellent job by Anna Fields on the Narration too!
First audio book for me from this author. Really enjoyed the narrator. I've read other books by this author, let's face it, these are predictable endings if you read these types of books. That's why I read them and listen to them, for escape. I thought the narrator added a lot to the story. I have since listened to another one in this series and have read a couple others. Would recommend anything read by this narrator as she does a great job.
