This book stayed with me for a while. It made me laugh and made me think. I enjoyed how Lacey got her life back in order on her own terms. Good on her :)
Loved Lacey and loved "Wolverine"
Give it a plot. She's hiding out during her marriage break-up, in the neighboring cottage is a man she takes a dislike to, who saves her when he thinks she's drowning. Surprise surprise who do you think she ends up with ??? I can't be sure, I couldn't read any further for yawning so deeply.
Scott Turow. He has a story to tell, 4-dimensional characters
The fluffy, unsubstantial mother
Frustration at the predictable self-defeating heroine.
Harbinger of Books
Lacey has been married to Mike for years and while her marriage was never passionate she thought it was stable. Then an order of flowers are sent to Lacey by mistake they are really for Mike's receptionist who is also Mike's mistress. Well Lacy is quite humiliated and she decides to get back by sending a mass e-mail to all of their friends, family and clients. Well one would think that people would sympathize with Lacey but they don't instead Lacey is forced to retreat to a lakeside cabin to lay low while things in town simmer down. At the lake house Lacey meets Monroe and ex-cop and crime novelist who likes isolation. Needless to say Monroe is not exactly happy to have a divorcee right next door who may or may not have a lot of drama.Meanwhile Lacey needs to figure out her life, what will she do for money? What does she like?
Normally I am not a fan of contemporary romance but I think Molly Harper is the greatest so I willing to take a chance. This book if very funny and Amanda Ronconi (narrator) just makes it all better. Lacey is a great character I like that she is for the most part rational but when she is irrational she really jumps off the deep end. This feels like a story that could actually happen. I also like the way that Mike was portrayed, he seemed like a man who just never thought about what he wanted and instead went along with everyone's expectations.
At first I thought it odd that she is entering a relationship with Monroe even if it is supposed to be casual but at the end it works.
Great story that is a lot of fun.
At the top!
Great listen and lots of laughs! A book you could get lost in.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a light and easy book to read. I would categorize it as one step up from a romance novel. Its nothing that is going to make you think or challenge you with complicated story lines. But it is the kind of book that is good to take your mind away and just have a bit of fun with. If that is what you are after i think you will enjoy this book and the author's sense of humor.
Newly retired, I am a reading fiend! I like many types of books, both fiction and non-fiction, with the exception of romance and fantasy
This was a fun listen all the way through. I would describe it as a romantic comedy. It was very entertaining and funny and kept me interested all the way through. I also found it reminiscent of Janet Evanovich's books.
The narrator had all the voices to go along with this story and certainly added to the enjoyment of the experience. She also has a knack for reading comedy, something not everyone can do well.
This was a light hearted, funny book that I really enjoyed. The narrator must do stand up herself, because her comedic timing was spot on. And Audible, if you're reading this - I would like to somehow mark this author - so when she writes more, I will remember how much I enjoyed this book. (Just a suggestion!)
I would absolutely listen to this book again. I was laughing the the whole time!
The accents, voices, etc. really make the listen spectacular.
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Running out this type Audible-so on2 lighter romance/mystery :-(
The book begins with wife sending out scathing email about cheating husband to EVERYONE about his cheating. However the author wasn't able to keep the momentum going and it was a 'nice' and predictable read after.
The email & Monroe!-most interesting.
She did a fair to good job.
Safe, fun predictable book....not worth full price or a credit-but bought on sale and I'm content.
