My husband and I listened to this while I was in the hospital recovering from the birth of our first child. This book is so much funnier than I expected - to the point where I was physically uncomfortable from laughing too much!
I highly recommend this to fans of humorous romance or "chick lit" novels, or for anyone looking to escape from it all for a while. It made those first nights with our little one even more enjoyable!
I love books, it's my great escape.
This one has some real LOL moments. I loved it. I am really starting to like this author, she is wonderful. The narrator is awsome she really brought the story to life..
Listen mostly to urban fantasy and suspense/thrillers but also enjoy mysteries, sci-fi, fantasy, romance, adventure, classic, modern, spiritual or general literature. And I always like a bit of romance in any of my stories.
Having just finished an intense read I was looking for something light. Amanda Ronconi is an amazing reader and so on a whim I clicked on her name to see what else she performed. When I spotted this one I remembered the reviews saying how funny it was. Even better it was already in my library so I started it immediately. Am I glad I did. I found myself laughing out loud more times than not. If you want something fun this is your book.
Ms. Harper reminds me of early Janet Evanovich books - without the mystery. Or the guns, crazy grandmothers and criminals. She is a genuinely funny author and that is actually a rarity. Her characters, and they are real "characters", are a mess, they make stupid decisions, which they compound by worse choices. But you have to love them. Even the ones you aren't supposed to love.
This is a very light, quick but satisfying read and I recommend it for anyone looking for a few escapist hours. I'm not usually a big chicklit fan. But I enjoyed this book so much that I broke a longstanding promise to myself and read her next series, even though they were about vampires and werewolves, two fantasy genres I avoid even more than chicklit. Guess what? They were funny and engaging too. I hope she continues to write and expands her genres. I will continue to read.
The narration was very good as well. The voice and the author's vision matched well together.
How does Molly Harper manage to keep the humor in each and every one of her books? Amazing! Love the humor, adore the characters, and the story line is super. And, hats off to Amanda Ronconi for an excellent narration of the story. Amanda always makes each character come to life with a different "voice." This truly adds to the story. Harper and Ronconi - what a team!
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
I love this book. The narrator does an exellent job and the story is just so funny, interesting and lite. A must listen!!!
Almost didn't listen to the whole of this book, because it started out from the viewpoint of a wife, whose husband was cheating on her. She was telling her story, and I just didn't know if I wanted to hear about a cheating husband,even in a humorous way. I stuck it out though, and did end up enjoying the book. Amanda Ronconi had something to do with that, I'm sure. She just knows how to tell a good tale, putting the punch lines right where they belong. I didn't like this book as much as the vampire and werewolf stories, but it will give you a good chuckle now and then.
I enjoyed this. The beginning was horrifying but Lacey's actions were funny. I enjoyed the story but it wasn't my favorite book of Molly Harpers. Lacey's family was very interesting and I abhor her husband but I did enjoy Lacey's journey of growing up. I liked the way the story wrapped up and it wasn't something I really saw coming. Amanda Ronconi did a very good job narrating and breathing life into the story.
I listen to mostly non-fiction and I was looking for something light and entertaining. This fit the bill. I smiled most of the time while listening. It was entertaining and full of fun.
I began listening to this with a laugh and I ended it was a laugh. While this book deals with reality it is done in a quirky yet funny way. Amanda and Molly are a fantastic duo. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and hope to hear more from this fantastic pair
