I've missed the Molly Harper, Amanda Ronconi duo. Its been almost a year since I picked up an audio book by this duo and it was too long. My Bluegrass Baby was the laugh out loud, sweet romance I've come to expect from Harper. And Ronconi delivers those one-liners so perfectly I don't think you can help but laugh out loud, wherever you are, no matter how inappropriate the timing.
My Bluegrass Baby won't blow you away with the originality of its storyline - you know the end pretty much as soon as you start. But that's really not the point - the getting there is the fun part.
I love the characters Harper creates, they're so real - they are full of glaring flaws and weaknesses, but they have so much heart and goodness too. I loved the main characters Sadie and Josh - even when they were behaving badly.
I'm so used to Harper writing in small town settings, I didn't realize at first that My Bluegrass Baby doesn't have that at all. But she created her own version of a small town in the tourism office's community - they're like that small town where everyone's in everyone's business and, with few exceptions, loves each other like a big, dysfunctional family. I love that element in her books and I'm glad it showed up in a unique way here.
If your looking for a quick romance that will make you smile and laugh, pick up My Bluegrass Baby. And I insist, you HAVE to listen to this one. It would be a shame to miss out on the greatness of Amanda Ronconi!
So funny I can't listen/read to anything she writes with people around me. I start laughing and people think I'm crazy. But I love everything she writes.
Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
Not Molly's best, but witty enough to hold my attention. Worth a read if you have a couple of hours.
Say something about yourself!
I adore Molly Harper books, love Amanda Ronconi's narration but this one let me down. It was under 6 hours, so super short, and while there were amusing moments the over all plot was weak. I feel it could have been continued and I would have been able to give it a higher rating but with just this little taste, well, I was disappointed.
Maybe buy it for $4.95, but don't use a credit or buy it.
Molly Harper made use of that giant bat outside Hillerich & Bradsby in downtown Louisville and smacked this one outside the park. Amanda Ronconi gave her usual stellar performance as well.
I like the Molly Harper & Amanda Ronconi combination, I am a huge fan of "And one last thing" but I didn't feel that this story was one of the strongest. It just felt ok to me nothing special. As far as reviews go the was nothing I could say I loved nor anything I could say I hated.
Reading with no hands!
In this chick lit romp through the bounties of Kentucky, Molly Harper hints at a series for a southern belle with a dash of sass. Shrouded in a difficult employment situation, we're treated to Sadie and Josh navigating their industry and each other with zest and aplomb. A supporting cast of quirky and likeableqq
