I was eagerly waiting for this book to come out. Ms Phillips as been one of my favorite writers - I have read every book she has written, but I have to say that I was very disappointed. The main character seemed to be a weak copy of Blue from Natural Born Charmer with more of a victim personality. There was almost no development of Lucy, who dropped out of sight almost immediately. In past books there were multiple stories going on and each one was a mini story in its own right. A lot of the same characters were in this one, but it was almost token representation. I will listen to this once more at a later time - sometimes a re-read will bring out things that was missed, but will probably delete from my library.
She has written another of my favorites. This one brings most of the books together. I have loved all of her books, and can't say enough good things about them.
As always SEP entertains. I enjoy her books because they always have a happy ending, are very funny and quite entertaining. This is a great book to snuggle under a blanket with and just relax.
I have read all of susan Elizabeth Phillips books and love the humor, witty banter and fun characters. This book is a follow up story about Teddy. Want to learn more background - it starts with Fancy Pants, Lady Be Good First Lady, Glitter Baby and now this. One. Next is the Great Eascape. All are very good and don't necessarily have to be read in order to enjoy this book. But all the previous characters are included in this book and fun to meet them again. This story is about Teddy (St Teddy that often has halos, birds or trumpets sounds his arrival) and Meg a daughter of the rich and famous who have cut her off financially and she has no clue about her self and what she wants. Fun story I've listened to several times over the years.
The story is clever, funny and laugh out loud great.
Meg and Ted
when Meg has to catty for Ted
The narrator!!! She makes the characters sound angry all the time! The women come through as whiney and hateful in their tone!
The Great Escape! Same narrator!
New narrator please! I have listened to many, many audio books. Few are more difficult to listen to! Takes away from the story!
