A few reviewers felt this book was too long but I enjoyed every second of it. I listened to it twice now. I think I have a new favorite author/reader combination. The story is heart-warming. It was a great relief from the overly-detailed sex scenes of some writers and the tortures that some writers feel are necessary to make a story interesting. The narration is perfect. I can see why Jenna Lamia is an award-winner. I hope to find more like this.
I feel this book was totally slow...hard to get in to and after only 45 mins. I'm returning it.In my opinion it's not worth a credit. I admit I purchased it solely on the reviews, but, as much as I wanted to like it and as much as I like the narrator, I just couldn't get in to it. It was just fluffy and lacking (in my opinion) anything that really grabbed me enough to want to even finish. Maybe it got better but I have to be honest, I just couldn't listen any more.
My aunt was the librarian in our town, I've been reading since I was 5! Books were my besties in grade school. Reading is exercise 4 R minds
I always love Jenna Lamia. She never disappoints.
It couldn't hold my interest. I'm not really sure...
Since it couldn't hold my interest long enough for me to finish, I'm not sure I'm qualified to answer.
I loved Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt and was hoping for the magic and feeling of that book. That didn't happen.
Endearingly charming and light, but lacking in passion, conflict or excitement. Nice narration. Good for light entertainment, but certainly not a page-turner. Skip this if you're wanting Southern Noir.
I learned a lot about antiques in this book. Unfortunately, there wasn't much else in this story.
I first listened to Saving CeeCee Honeycutt an really enjoyed he characters and pacing of the story.
This story has equally wonderful characters and Jenna Lamia is a superb reader. She can go between character voices with ease and the listener knows automatically who is then speaking in the story. She's marvelous.
Although this story does have a problem and resolution it is more subtle. This is more of a narrative slice of life story, which was exactly what I was looking for.
