This is my first Molly Harper book and she is now on my favorite author list. This was a great book and wonderful to listen to, the narration is spot-on. I would actually sit in my driveway after I got home because I did not want to stop listening. A fun story with hilarious laugh out loud moments and funny, normal & easy to relate to characters (terribly grateful my Mom is not like the one in this book). I really couldn't get enough and did not want it to end. As I begin to start listening to the next book I am hoping with everything I have that Molly Harper will write more of these books!!!
This was the first book I've read by this author and was very pleasantly surprised. Also, being a Southerner, it was great to hear a reader with a believable, slightly-Southern accent. Certainly one of the most entertaining audio books I've listented to in a while. Indeed, I can't think of the heroine or the varied cast of Alaskan characters without smiling.
Most engaging, funny, full of surprises. The story moves right along... only wish it didn't have to end. going on to book 2 and hoping there is a 3,4,5...
Although not as intense as the Sookie Stackhouse novels....just as engaging
Of course, Mo has to be the favorite..Ronconi's performance never weakened and was enjoyable with all characters.
If I had the time, I would have listened to this in one sitting....Glad I didn't buy the book to read or I wouldn't have been getting any sleep.
I have always loved to read, and now I really enjoy listening to my books as well!!
This is a book that I picked up on a whim--with an excellent overall rating and a cute cover, I said "Why not?"
It is a fun listen that is narrated beautifully by Amanda Ronconi. The story is light and obviously not based in reality, but once you put all the literary snobbishness aside, it is just an entertaining listen. And this book helped me see that I can enjoy audiobooks that fall outside my usual genres. I have enjoyed several books within the last year or so that I never would have looked twice at--including another Molly Harper novel!
I love a good book but thanks to dislexea i suck at reeding speling and ya. so bring on audio fiction!
Again i love thiss so much! All the charters are relatabal witch makes things so funny. i cant stop reading her work!
To All My Favorite Narrators: You are the voices in my head...
I got this book after reading all the good reviews. Everyone raved that this book was "hilarious" - well, maybe it's me, but I think "hilarious" is a bit of a stretch. The book has its funny moments, but it’s not the laugh-out-loud comedy I was expecting.
This is a fun, cute story about a girl running away from her overbearing parents to the Alaskan wilderness where she meets Cooper, who is a werewolf. While the story is meant to be light and fun (which it is), I felt that the author rushed the love story. There is no real build up of feelings between the two characters. Although a lot of time passes in the story I felt that the reader doesn't get to be a part of the romance - we are pretty much told what happened and must go on faith that these two characters have the kind of love required to meet the demands of the relationship. It's pretty much, they meet, they don't like each other in that "we really do like each other, but we are not going to be the first to admit it" way - they are attracted to each other - they have sex - then they all of a sudden love each other. (!?!) I found myself asking, "when did this happen?"
She does this with almost every plot point. The Alaskan winter that everyone is warning Mo about in the beginning - where we will get to see if she can really stick out - is also pushed under the rug. Winter is mentioned in passing and we do not really get a good glimpse into the everyday life of the characters.
I just wish this book were about 100 pages longer to flush out these great plot points. So for this I give it 3 stars. It’s not a complete waste of time, and the narrator does a good job with the voice acting. The book is a good beach read, but for those who like to see relationships spring to life, grow and bloom - you will be disappointed.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Lots of dry humor, I have lots of bushmen in my family and the characters really came to life for me. This is the first one in the series of two.
I absolutely love audible! I read constantly and there is nothing better than finding a new series to follow. I'm a syfy/fant kinda gal.
This was a cute read! I liked the narrator and enjoyed the story. Nothing that requires capturing every word, but a good story overall.
The story was so-so. Sometimes funny but seemed pointless. However, that could be because the narrator ruined it completely for me. She read the story with a nagging, whiny, irreverent tone that made the characters unlikable. Do they fall in love? Get eaten by werewolves? Live happily ever after? I found I didn't care as long as the woman quit whining into my ears.
I've listened to it again...and again. Amanda Ronconi's narration is perfect. Her comedic timing paired with Molly Harper's storytelling and humor makes this a definite 5 star read.
Moonflower aka Mo. She's a riot! Blunt and down to earth. Her relationship with her parents, especially her mother is the best. In addition, her care for the other characters in the book is endearing. As well as how she deals with Cooper, her love for La Perla, and her ability to make chocolate chess squares...of course.
There are so many. But if I had to choose one, it would be the night of the
I laughed repeatedly...out loud. There were some sad moments, but none that made me openly bawl :)
Great, great listen. I wouldn't hesitate to add it to your collection.
