The story was fine. I wasn't blown away by it, but it was a good light summer read. If I could speak to the author, I'd ask why she felt it necessary to tell us every road number Maddie drove on. She did a lot of driving and it was distracting to be told the street and highway numbers.
This series was recommended to me by a friend and while there a few memorable moments this series is not grabbing my attention enough to continue to follow it. There are better series out there with more likeable sleuths.
Love listening to books while siting at my desk doing data entry
I would definately listen to the antics of Maddie over and over again.
I love the mix of Maddie and Dana's "Lucy and Ethal" tatics, Mom and Faux Dad, plus the pure sex appeal of Jack makes you want to know whats next.
Her interpretation of Maddie is spot on
This was a tough one for me because its a tie between Maddie and Dana. I think I would take them both just to see first hand how these two interact with each other.
this is a hilarious book series and listening to them now is even better! Caroline Shaffer brings Maddie to life and makes her even better! I will definately be listening to this series!
Very funny, and very entertaining. The story was fast moving. I'm a painter and listen to books on tape every night and sometimes days. Sometimes I feel like getting into a long 40 hour book or sometimes I want a book like this. Upbeat,funny,and you don,t want to stop listening. After the first book, I had to get all six books. Definitely worth the credit
Caroline is great, I can't imagine anyone else doing a better.job. She has the characters down. From the girly,girls to the gay hairdresser. I really loved the narrator. In fact, I will be looking for more books read by Caroline.
Well had fun, listening to thisCaroline Shafer made it very enjoyable. Characters were fun to get too know an looking forward to the next book, soon as I get my next set of credits
The story line is unbelievable and the characters are incredibly shallow and poorly developed.
It is a shame Shaffer's talent was wasted on this story.
** SPOILER ** SPOILER ** SPOILER **
The entire story is interrupted with statements of a possible pregnancy. But Maddie won't take a pregnancy test. Instead, she laments about being late and whether or not she's showing yet. It doesn't create tension, it's really annoying. Take the pregnancy test already!
** SPOILER ** SPOILER ** SPOILER **
It is difficult for me to suspend belief in order to enjoy this story. It is way too unbelievable.
Just think of how easy it is to eat fairy floss ---- just listen to this and zone out into fluff land .
I am a 62 year old mail carrier who has had her sanity saved by audiobooks
not unless she does a better job with the main character...the author has a gift for dialog...many chuckles... but the main character Maddie... needs slapped....no one... no one could possibly be this big a ding bat!!!!!!!!!
I have a Harlan Coben up next
somewhat whiny... but then she is doing Maddie...ding bat ....
but she does a good job bringing Maddie to life
this is sort of a fun book to listen to...and if u download it I am sure u will find several chuckle-making scenes... but I just want to hit Maddie over the head with something... and when u listen u will know to what I am referring... and say .. get on with it!!!!!
More depth to the characters. More in-depth story with realism. I was looking for something along the line of Ferm Michaels Weekend Warrior series and this didn't come close.
Probably would suit teens and early 20 year olds.
