Mary Kay Andrews knows how to write the perfect beach read. And this one, narrated by Kathleen McInerney, is a fantastic beach listen. I didn't want it to end.
Tell us about yourself! Love listening to books in the bathtub and in the bed before I go to sleep, love James Burke, and John Grishman
Nice book, it had me laughing at loud
Like them all the same
Like her reading , very animated
It will make you forget about your days events, it made me laugh
Savannah Blues, Hissy Fit, and Little Bitty Lies and other books of Mary Kay Andrews are great reads. This one is sweet but so predictable with many mawkish moments. I found I didn't laugh once when reading this book, while I am usually cracking up over her characters' zany antics. I couldn't wait for her new book to come out but I hope the next Andrews will bring the "crazies" back that make her books so much fun!
I loved the character Annajane! If my children weren't grown, I would name my first child Annajane.
I actually had to re-read the description of this book to remember what it was about, even though I just listened to it. A story that revolves around a family-owned soft drink company in the south, despite the love story, was a bit thin. If Quicksie (sp?) was a real brand, I would have felt like I was listening to one long commercial. It was a bit overdone on that front. The love story and plots held my attention long enough to get me through the book but it didn't resonate at all.
No, I like a light read, especially to listen to.
Her performance was solid. No complaints there.
It was light, easy listening.
Well I personally am a huge fan of romantic comedies because they are a break from reality :) This book really delivered in a sweet story, with characters you come to "know, love and/or loathe", and it also delievered that far fetched perfect ending you find in most romantic comedies! I was really shocked with the SURPRISE that was eventually revealed near the end of the story. I look forward to reading other titles by this author.
A predictable plot with likeable characters in the hands of an experienced author still makes 4 stars. Not my - personal - best in this genre, but still highly recommendable if you're looking for a couple of hours of easy listening.
No complaints on the narration either.
The coyingly sweet delivery of the reader was more than I could bear.
People who like writers like James Patterson might like this.
Hate that I spent money on it.
Fun listen! I like the characters Mary Kay Andrews puts together. She blends real emotion, humor, relatable characters and a great story line.
An audio book loving Aucklander.
When I first started to listen, I was a little worried that I'd made a wrong choice, never having read any of Mary Kay's books before. However, as I got into it I realised what a clever writer she is and that I'd made a great choice. She has a keen sense of humour and knows how to tell an inhernantly female story, without it being stereotypical and 'chic lit' like. The narrator is very talented too. I think she may be one of the best narrators I've listened to, and I've listened to hundreds of audio books! The way she is able to tell the story so smoothly, all the while keeping the voices, characteristics and varied accents of each character in place; that is surely a real art. I have just downloaded 'my next listen' from this author. Maybe I've found a new author to add to my favourties list. They are not easy to come by.
