It's not Crusie's best, but definitely not her worst either. She's at her best when she focuses on the relationships between the characters, which she kind of does here but the plot was a little too thin.
I didn't find this book so "great, funny and interesting" as it was described in so many reviews. For me this book has rather silly and vacuous plot, but was written with humour and good language. While reading it I was remembering film "Ghostbusters". So I can recommend this book to everybody who like this film.
love love love it was another great listen. was good right up to the very last word. has a few twist in there. good charactors funny twist and turns. several times i refused to get out of truck till parts where over. easy fast listens. if it was the book you couldn't stop turning the pages.
I have been an avid reader of Jennifer Crusie for a while now. So I was excited to see that she had a new audo book out & I have to tell you this book is great!!! Her caracters are spot on and the plot did keep me going (though I did miss her usual dog character in this one) The reader did a good job of all the characters & I would listen to her again. If you like Jennifer Crusie's Books than this one is a must! Happy Listening!!!
Listen on people!
Jennifer Crusie cracks me up. I love her sense of humor she puts into her books. From beginning to end, it was a pure fun & pleasure.
Loved it. I didn't want it to be over when I finished it. I enjoyed the sense of humor...the mystery...the bit of romance. It held my attention clear to the end..
This. Wasn't my usual read I usually pick more serious, deep, intense and sultry but I really enjoyed this one it had romance and suspense but was light hearted and made me laugh
The way the narrator made the book come to life
All of them
Romantic comedy with a spooky twist
This was my first book by this author but it definitely won't be my last
The narrator was excellent. She really brought the characters to life. LOL funny. The romantic element was subtle enough that I didn't feel like I was listening to bad porno. The hero isn't present for most of the book, which does inhibit the romantic development to a degree. It's not as much of a problem as it could be, since this is a second-chance romance (which ventures well into chick-lit). The addition of the ghosts made for an exciting and occasionally chilling plot. There were a couple of things which bugged me, but not enough to derail me from the story. I found it hard to stop listening and get off the Stairmonster (which should tell anyone who's ever used one how good this book is). This was my first Jennifer Cruise; it won't be my last. I'll be looking for more of this narrator and this team.
I've read 'Bet Me' several times because it's just so - fun. And clever. And witty. By far, my favorite Crusie book. So after reading the reviews for this one I took the plunge and spent a precious Audible credit. I loved it! Again, smart writing and strong characters. And as much as I enjoyed the story I was utterly enthralled by the reader! She is fantastic!! I will absolutely listen to her again and again. And now, I'm off to find more Angela Dawe novels... and if she's the reader for 'Bet Me' I'm going to start there.
