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
Really loved this book! Any woman who has gone through the trial's of betrayal, can truly relate to this book!! Also love the greeting card's idea!! What a kick it would be to put it back on to all the cheater's out there who go out of their way to hurt decent people.
Avid reader and audiobook listener; I love paranormal lit, mysteries, historical fiction, romance, Brit-crime novels and thrillers.
Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi are the perfect duo. Molly is a clever, inventive writer and Amanda is a very talented lady. Put them together and it's P.F.M.! The story is interesting, laugh-out-loud funny, and a bit different from her paranormal vampire/werewolf stories, while still being classic Molly Harper. The supporting characters are still quirky and the less-than-perfect heroine is still snarky. The male lead is not the stereotypical hot guy. In fact, he's actually a bit unlikeable at first, which only makes the story more interesting. I felt genuinely sorry for Lacey at first, when she discovered her husband's infidelity. But then got quite a chuckle as she, not being one to sit around crying and wringing her hands, gets her revenge in a big way.
Amanda Ronconi has the perfect voice for Molly Harper's characters; full of personality with just the right "edge". She brings the characters to life. She does a fairly decent job with the male voices as well, which, I can imagine, must be difficult for a woman. Her voice is not a typical female voice. At times she almost sounds like an adolescent boy, which makes her perfect to voice the strong, snarky gals Harper likes to write about.
All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. If you have read anything by Molly Harper, and enjoyed it, you will like this book. Just be warned that you won't find any ghosts, vamps, or werewolves; only strange familial characters and lots of the expected laughs.
I am a big fan of Molly Harper but this was a little different for me. Not as funny as her other books but kept my attention.
I'm a relationship coach (QueenBeesCoaching), survived raising my children and have a loving relationship. Life is good!
I really, really, like Molly Harper's stories. This one was the last of her stories, to date anyway, and I'm sad there are no more to listen to. I'm hoping she turns into quite the prolific writer! I'll support her by happily buying any story she writes.
This one is very typical for a romance, but at the same time, it's very different. Our heroine, Lacey, is very much the typical housewife who has lived life as her husbands supporter. Everything revolves around him until the day she discovers the affair.
When it came to where Lacey was writing the company newsletter and you hear the narrator, Amanda Ronconi's fabulous voice laden with sarcasm, reading the newsletter out loud as it's being written, well I laughed my butt off. I was cheering Lacey on and wishing I'd had some of the authors ability with words to use in my own daily life.
So while you know it's a romance and she finds her right guy... it's still a fun read and a different type of story line.
If you like a sassy, funny and slightly sarcastic book, then this one is for you. Any book that has me laughing out loud in surprise and delight, is a book I will be listening to again. It made a 3 hour drive, plus a full day at the hospital (Mom having surgery), just sail by. I used the headphones and kept listening, although it surprised the hospital staff quite a bit when there was this strange woman sitting in a waiting room all alone and laughing out loud!!
I'm so sad to have reached the end of Molly Harpers audiobooks. :( But at least I can find out what other books the narrator, Amanda Ronconi, worked on. As far as I'm concerned, Amanda's rendition of Molly Harper's books elevates them to fantastic and fabulous. I'm a very happy customer indeed!
This was a hysterical listen. It's a little out of the realm for my normal read, but I truly enjoy Molly Harper so I gave it a shot and was delightfully rewarded.
It's snarky, funny, bright, well written and well read. I can't reccomend it highly enough. I literally had to cover my mouth to keep from laughing aloud.
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!!!
Women will roll in the floor with this great narration of a funny book. Amanda Ronconi has absolutely nailed the style and voice of Molly Harper's character.
I LOVED this book! What a great story!!! And SO funny!
For anyone who's ever been hurt by a man; this book is for you!
I loved it! Snappy writing. A good healing book for a woman wronged or just a fun read. I liked the way the character took a good look at her life and made conscious choices to improve it--not just fall into another problem.
