If you are in the mood to listen to something light hearted, funny, with no surprises then this duo fits the bill. Harper puts the romantic comedy to paper, and Ronconi brings the characters to life as only she can do. I love these books for a quick listen that keeps you chuckling. The story is predictable, but who cares when it lifts the spirits and puts a smile on the face.
These books are starting to get very predictable, but still enjoyable. This combination of Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi is a recipe for success!
I LOVED this first book in a new series by Molly Harper.
MY BLUEGRASS BABY is SO Molly Harper, I would've known who had written it, even if her name wasn't on it. It's snarky, sarcastic, hilarious, fun, entertaining...and all of this is done so incredibly well by Amanda Ronconi, I see why she's the voice actor of choice for all of Molly's books.
This intro to a new series is contemporary, without elements of paranormal (which Molly does very, very well). I found myself empathizing painfully well with Sadie (though I don't have the same job, lifestyle, connections, profession, or even state of the union). Molly is a master of writing empathetic characters, whose emotions resonate with readers/ listeners. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the war between Josh Vaughn and Sadie Hutchins escalate and morph and include the obvious attraction. It was so rewarding watching them fall for each other....and with the tale told entirely from Sadie's point of view, it was great SEEING Josh's motivation, choices, dilemmas through Sadie's eyes.
Highly recommended for fans of contemporary romance, fans of Molly Harper's work, and everyone in between. Enjoy!
I'll listen again to revisit the main characters quick, sharp humor.
Don't drink while you are listening to this book or you will be shooting it all over when you hear what secretary does to get even....wicked senses of humor! Sarcasm at it's best and in action.
There is something about the way the character lives her integrity when she's so completely uncomfortable that inspires me and makes me wonder 'what if..." about my own life. And the great humor.
The first few chapters have some hideous editing errors that I think Audible should fix!!!! If I didn't enjoy the humor so much I'd return the book as 'defective.'
This book is so short, it's more like a novelette (with stinging humor instead of charm.)
Funny, sarcastic, funny, fast read, funny, sexy, funny, sharp, funny, charming, funny, educational, funny, wacky, funny. Have you ever thought about squirrel genitalia? Did I mention that the book is FUNNY?
You can read about Sadie Hutchins and Josh Vaughn in the synopsis of the book but that does not let you in on another great character, Kelsey, the secretary, who is also very funny with her original and quirky ways of solving problems.
I knew what was coming but it was fun to ride along on the adventure to see how the journey unfolded. I had to force myself to put the book down and get some shut eye. I’d read the book again just because it is so funny.
This is definitely a chick book like the rest of Molly Harper’s books but I do love her writing. This is one of her best.
I enjoyed this story a lot. It was on the short side but was by no means incomplete and the story itself was really cute. I'd rather have a book be short than just have words for the sake of having words. Of course this being Molly Harper it was also funny. I especially enjoyed the visit to the vent museum and the cast of characters in the marketing office was interesting although I wish we could have seen more of them. The story also made me want to visit Kentucky. I've only been there a few times but it seems like an interesting place. I really like this author and narrator pairing. Amanda Ronconi just reads the stories perfectly.
No matter what the story is, Molly Harper always seems to hit the mark! A light, beautifully written romance, you can't help but giggle and cry with. Amanda Ronconi, yet again enthralls with her narration.
The only fall back with this story is it's length.
5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
Reading Molly's books are always a refreshing and entertaining experience. There wasn't anything special about this book, but it was a good refresh button for me as I have listened to a lot of books lately and needed a different book to listen to.
Married, middle-age, owner of 3 dogs, 2 cats, and a messy house.
This one makes me laugh out loud. Snark, humor, wonderful word choices. There are people I want to meet in this book. And, of course, Amanda Ronconi's talented voice. It all folds together the way Molly Harper is so good at, making the third listen as much fun as the first. Highly recommended for an afternoon of fun.
