I enjoyed this quirky little book...I found it to be "It's a Wonderful Life" meets "The Art of Racing in the Rain." The narrators are fantastic.
Nice little story about second chances. My male friend is always telling me I am too nice. I have always thought I was just doing the right thing. Think I will just keep being me and maybe I will not have to come back in any reincarnation. On the other hand he will come back as a jack ass if life is fair.
What a clever angle from which to examine a relationship. Characters Well drawn, if at extreme poles, lighthearted and entertaining, fun to read. Nothing earthshaking about the main characters. When Mac, a minor character revealedc his feelings about surviving 9-11, I wished the story were more about him. I was in need of an easy read just now, and this book left me in a happy place.
Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.
Giving my mind a break from weightier historical fiction and crime novels, I gave Emily and Einstein a listen. Still meaty enough, yet light enough not require every brain cell, the book was just right. A little far-fetched fantasy (pardon the pun) where an almost dead husband is turned into a pooch never hurt anyone. Also, as a woman having tried to balance being a wife, mother and full time career during the 1970's, I found it quite refreshing to hear that Emily and Jordan's mother, a pioneer in the women's lib movement came to the startling realization that she COULDN'T do it all . . . just like we all did. I'm a lover of children's books, too . . . just as Emily is . . . so I found the book a very enjoyable detour.
I recommend this book highly to anyone who has had a loss in their life. It is the perfect book about love, betrayal, hope, and closure. It keeps you guessing all the way through to the end. It will completely touch you heart.
I always think of city life as cold and cheerless, but this story was sweet. The narration was comfortable and enjoyable. This was the perfect book to enjoy while fighting a bad cold.

The performance was decent, but there were several times when the reader didn't like the way she delivered the line and read it again. Clearly there was no editing done, or not enough and it really threw me off the story. *Attempting to not leak spoilers* The antagonist was so frustrating, I really hoped he wouldn't find redemption.
Love to read. So much in fact that I've become a writer. I have fifteen published Christian romances.
In her story Linda Francis Lee has taken fiction to an entirely different realm. I look forward to reading more.
