This book was not quite as funny, nor the heroine quite as sassy, as I hoped for. Still, it was a nice relaxing listening experience.
The only thing that aggravated me, but which is not specific to this book, is that everybody seems to have plenty of money. Who will write a boy-gets-girl story where the protagonist-s have to work and scrimp and save?
Sometimes you need a little light fluff. I would recommend this book, it is easy to listen to and made me smile.
The ending was good and tied up all loose ends.
When she has the face off with the mother in law
Yes, I enjoyed.
Why is it men don't know whaen they really have it good? Molly Harper draws into love with her heroine. Amanda Ronconi brings her to life. An unbeatable combination. We all await more!
There was plenty of humor to offset the seriousness.
The main character was, of course, my favorite. She was funny and down to earth. Listening to her struggle while she kept her sense of humor was entertaining. Ms. Harper can make her characters shine.
When listening to the book, you believe that the reader is the main character. Some times when I read rather than listen I might not put the same spin on the dialog as Ms. Ronconi does.
I laughed a lot.
Thoroughly enjoyed the book. Have gotten other Harper books since listening to this one.
Love fantasy books, usually with a strong female character. I also enjoyed just about anything from J.D Robb I am a fan of mysteries as well. I also enjoy funny and quirky novels anything from Molly Harper is a winner in my book. Since listening to audio books is important to me while I travel I also follow certain narrators as well.
This is nothing like Molly's typical books, but it stand alone well. I loved it so much, I bought it for a friend who is having difficulty at home. The truth is if you are a women, and you have ever wanted to get back at a man who wronged you this is for you. Not only will you laugh the entire time, and out loud, but you will see its just not worth your energy in the end to stay mad or angry or think of revenge, someone out there is perfect for you, so laugh along with me and then feel refreshed and go find you soul mate. You will be glad you did. I still listen to this from time to time when my soul mate makes me angry, its a great relief and so funny I cant help but forget why I was angry.
From the first spoken word the book hooked you, and there were so many laugh out loud moments that it was thouroughly enjoyable. I recommended it to several friends.
Avid audible reader!
Molly Harper does a great job with humor and this book is no exception. She took an ordinary experience and made me sympathetic at once with the main character. She didn't let us wallow in sympathy but, made us see the humor in her situation. Her characterizations are good and the entire cast of characters are people you could relate to. I had an English teacher who always told us that you could tell a good book if it stood up to being read aloud. This is one of those books.
I would have to say the end of the book was my favorite. Lacey grows up and understands that you can't survive on vengeance.
The slightly tipsy flower lady.
I wouldn't rename the book. The title is perfect.
First off if you enjoy a good laugh then Molly Harper would fit the bill... her writing is hilarious with a good story line. The plot moves along at a good pace and has a good number of "OMG no way" laugh until you cry moments. This is the 3rd book of hers I have read and each one seems to be as good as the first. Would definitely recommend her to anyone. I listened to this as an Audible but I am getting the hard copy for a couple of friends who are too old school to listen to or get a kindle lol. The narrator has done great with each book.
The e-mail sent by Lacy Terwilliger. I doubt that there is a person out there that hasn't fantasized about sending just such a letter.
Amanda Ronconi is a wonderful listen. This performance is as good as any other she's done. If I'm dithering on a selection, seeing her as the narrator will certainly tip the scales towards purchase.
