I really enjoyed the second book. As others have said, it spends a lot of time talking about Zeb and Jolene's pending marriage and their own family problems. But I enjoyed getting to know some of the other characters in the story, their family problems, and such. I thought Amanda did a great job with the voices. It really helps.
OK, all my neighbors think I am absolutely nuts. I listen to my audiobooks on my IPod with ear phones, so my neighbors are always hearing me burst out laughing for no apparent reason as I sit on my patio all alone. Worse, at one point while driving, I had to pull over cause I was laughing so hard.
These audio books should come with a warning about using heavy machinery while listening.
It's funny. The characters are well developed and likeable. The story flows easily. It's one of those books that I just couldn't stop listening to. Amusing snappy realistic dialogue. These are characters to which a reader can really relate.
Amanda Ronconi is one of the best narrators that I have ever heard. I have sought out other books that she has narrated based on her performance alone. Her performance is natural. I never felt like she was actually reading. Her vocal characterizations are spot on and easily differentiated from each other. She really brings Jane to life.
Molly Harper is a wonderful Author. I listened to one of her books and was hooked, I couldn't stop till I had listened to or read them all. She always puts me in a good mood.
Jane, I found myself drawn to the character. She was relateable and very funny.
I loved her interpretation of the candidates.
I listened to the book in one sitting. I listened to it twice!! I loved all of the characters.
The art of writing is to develop a story with characters that the reader can 1. connect with on a person level and 2. care about. Ms. Harper has more than surpassed that goal. Not only is the story interesting and compelling and the characters well developed but there was so much life in the story that it was impossible not to see the humor in the various situations and laugh out loud. I have made plans to read the whole series and any other books by Ms. Harper I can get my hands on. Life is much to serious now days not to have a good laugh.
Funny Entertaining Sexy
Anything from Janet Evonovich
Will be waiting for the next in the series..
I would listen to this book again in a heartbeat. I had this on my list to read then joined audio and decided to listen while I painted my kitchen. My 21 yr old daughter helped and we laughed so hard that we were sad when we were done painting and hadn't finished the book.
Well, I would compare it to Queen Betsy in the first 3 or 4 books that were so funny. She just has a running dialogue in her head that cracks me up and actually reminds me of how i think at times. She isn't so serious.
This was the first book I had ever heard her read and I was blown away by her performance. She picked up not only mood ,tone, accents but she went from one character to another seamlessly! Bravo Ms. Ronconi!!!!!!
I highly recommend any of Molly Harpers audio books. I actually prefer to listen to her books because of Amanda Ronconi's performance of the characters. Enjoy this light paranormal romance.
I haven't read any of the "Nice Girls" books, so couldn't say if the audio version was better than the print one, but I will say that I very much enjoyed the audio version.
I think Jane herself was the best, but I loved the entire cast, and thought Dick was well written - you got a sense of his personality more than other characters.
I like her style, and inflection. She does a good southern accent, though her men's voices are a little goofy. The aren't totally believable - but it doesn't ruin the listen.
No. It's a pretty lightweight storyline, so no major ups or down.
Funny Red-neck Wrongness!
I'd compare it to Sandra Hill books but since I can't get them on audio I dig anything by Molly Harper
Read this series!
I really liked this book. I like vampire stories but this one is like a regular girl who just "happens" to be a vampire. She doesn't start out like that and the way it happens is funny too. She has a great sense of humor, she's just like one of your friends in anybody's life. Except her life is much more interesting than usual! I recommend this book and it's three others in the series to all who like a light read that captures your attention and keeps it. Great story, great narrator, worth the entire series!
