My favorite genres are absurdist humor, Sci-fi & modern fantasy, but, as you can see, I'll read just about anything. Don't mind the typos.
Sweet characters, fun story. This is the first book by Phillips that I've listened to. It's good. I have since listened to a few more but was disappointed by their similarity. So if this is your first Susan Phillips you'll likely enjoy it.
Attorney - love to listen to audio books
I truly enjoy Susan Elizabeth Phillips books. All her famale characters are great, and Matchmaker Annabelle, the heroine in this book, is one of her best. The male characters are also very interesting and likeable. This book takes up where this Heat of Mine and Kevin Tucker leaves you. Now you read about Kevin's agent, "The Shark" (Heath Campion) and Annabelle. The dialog between Heath and the little girl (she calls Heath "Prince") is hilarious.
Anna Phillips does her usual fine job. A credit well used!
I loved this story, it was so entertaining... the reader did an amazing job too, reading out the funny lines... the listen actually had me crackin' up like an oddball in the subway! I will definitely check out more from this author, even if unfortunately I notice that Audible doesn't have many titles from her... let's hope that will change!
Don't miss this if you like to dream with your eyes closed once in a while...
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
When I purchased this book it was on sale and I didn't realize it was a series. After listening to it I became a Phillips fan and starting to listen to her other books. She has a way of making her characters real.
I absolutely loved this book. It takes you on a fantastic roller coaster of emotions and you can't help but feel attached to the characters. This was my first SEP book, but will be reading more, I'm hooked!
This was my first Susan Elizabeth Phillips book and it made me a fan! Annabel is a funny, quirky leading lady and I was cheering her on through the whole book. I loved it so much I now have a huge wish list for all of Ms Phillips books!!!
I have listened to three SEP books and this is still my favorite, likely because Annabelle is my favorite heroine. She's funny, witty and irreverent. The narrator seems to key into her really well.
There are some fall-down funny moments in this book that you will want to hear again and again.
I also love the little "bonus" romances in SEP's books. Once you've read some of her stuff you will know what I mean.
I so enjoyed this. Light and fun. The characters were memorable. I look forward to listening to this again. A very nice, feel good story.
I liked the story, it was amusing, the characters were engaging. It's light, breezy and fun. I got it because I wanted something light and the ratings were all so good. But I had a couple of problems with story in general and the audio book in particular.
1. I don't care for sports, especially American football. But to her credit, the author made these characters likeable, so that was a pleasant surprise, still there was too much sports in this book for me.
2. I think the book might have done with an edit to tighten it up - awfully long for a romance.
3. I really did not like the narrator. As another reviewer said, she doesn't do men's voices well. Her women's character voices, especially Annabelle were quite good. But her general narration was flat and I wish she would do narration with the same spark she did Annabelle. As far as men's voices, we know the narrator is a woman, she's not going to sound like a man - by forcing her voice so low, the men are hard to listen to.
