The travel details - the foods, histories and creation of the landscapes. And the Characters: Amy - Broken, Roger - Feeling, and the supporting cast of Bronwyn, Walcott and Lucien that all gave extra heart to this story.
Bronwyn, Walcott and Lucien - love them all and they are all important to this story.
The story is is the perfect rite of passage book.
The scene when Amy goes back to the golf course and annouces that her father is dead.
I like the book because I can really see the personality of each character and the was the story unfolds. I didn't want it to end, and wanted to see when else this story would take me, but it had to and it ended well.
The story was so strong that you felt the characters feelings.
Amy and Roger's Epic Detour and Along for the Ride.
I love Kate Rudd, she is has a way pulling you into the story either Romance or Teens or any other
Not happily ever after - just life and death in the "Heart of Jesus."
Love the supporting cast - the parents and friends and even the mean author, but they all matter to the story - I know this book has been out for a while and have put it pretty low on my book list because I heard it was depressing, but it was funny with a serious subject - beautiful story
I would definitely recommend it - It keeps moving and you fall in love with the players - old and new.
Hanna as Ziggy (No filter on this girl) and of course Will (under cover romantic).
I have listened to all the Beautiful books so I familiar with both Ms. Grant and Mr. York vocal talents. I have a book crush on Sebastian York - I like his deep grainy voice on this series and another I am reading. I have listened to Grace Grant from the very first Beautiful book and she does all the characters perfectly - love them both.
Brutal and Honest - can make anyone laugh out loud.
I like that Ms. Lauren doesn't just hand us a book full of sex scenes and ask us to enjoy it. She gives us a good story and pepper it with HOT scenes that has that reader intrigued. I am looking forward to Beautiful Beginning.
This was so great to listen to - but beware - laughter will happen even will driving
The way it was put together - the characters - the Shakespeare references
R2D2 was the best - that cast was incredible
I laughed for the whole first part of the book - and the second part - it was great - and I don't always like music or sound effects in other books, it was perfect in this book - especially enjoyed R2D2
I am giving this as a gift to 3 people and I have a couple of folks wanting to get it for themselves. Wish I could give it more than 5 stars
The interactions between Sophia and Phin - Amy and Davey hold their own and I love the voice of Wes. The supporting cast is great and Dilly is a hoot.
The characters - all of them - the humor and the love story(s)
I have not, but she did an amazing job on this story - bravo!
I loved the pool scene - he deserved to get his ass handed to him (but I still Love him) - the dressing up in the bar scene and the first time in a bed scene - all so f-ing funny.
Beware - if you are drinking anything while reading this book, you might spit it all over at certain parts of this book from laughing too hard. - Don't say I didn't warn you.
I liked that she was fine in her own skin - that she was a real sounding person with the unreal happening around her.
Something Borrowed - because it was on the same vein as Good in Bed (to me)
The scene in the bathroom - when she met Maxi Rider for the first time.
When she met her celebrity crush and he lends her the car
The ladies at the weight-loss program were the funniest
when she tells the man that she is lost and he tells her "Get Found."
I wanted to punch Bruce (whinny brat) - I wanted to punch his girlfriend and I got really mad that he NEVER went to see his daughter - prat.
I loved that she had a great support system - Her Mom, her spetmom, brother and sister, Bestfriends Samantha and Maxie and of course Peter. So many laughing parts with them.
But he father is where I really had a reaction - Bruce was a brat, but her father was a heel. "Forget that family after I screwed up those kids, let me go get some more." Jackass.
I was a good read and it was great for her first book. Going to read Certain Girls soon.
They're are spoilers:
The story was visioned very well. It was entertaining in the beginning; the explanation of her life, of her rebellious day and the crime that she witnessed. The story of Abigail life in the small town was explained well. Brooks was a little stalker like, but he was a good hero.
A few doors were opened that didn't need to be and could have been replaced or omitted; him bagging the Coke can after Abigail drank from it and the girlfriend that he use to have sex with. All of Brooks side stories were relevant.
Now, for her: I liked Abigail, especially in the beginning as Liz. She was very naive and likeable. But then her character did not wane. In the beginning of the story, she was not a part of the world or the social structure of the world, yet she was more believable as a teen holding back her feelings. I would have liked her to have grown up to be a little "jaded". As Abigail, she was still that teenage girl we originally met. But she was a bad-ass with a gun. I wish she had better closure with her mother.
I like the hippiness of the town and the description (not over described). His Mom was great with the painting and the dogs stories, but his mom's accent was not a real Maryland sounding accent, more New England. But the rest of the voices were great.
I did expect that that "in hiding" aspect of the story to be more defined (which comes later in the book). It took so long for Brooks to find out what was going on with Abigail and for them to come up with a plan. If they were given more time, I believe that they could have up with an even better plan of attack. I liked the side stories and how they "kinda" come together (a little work on that). The whole Blake story line was a good distraction for Abigail, but she was easily distracted by EVERYTHING.
The ending was not bad and you were really rooting for the heroes. Most of the ending of the story was fantastic, and I don't believe that a book have to be 100% believable, but I wanted more on Ilya. What he was doing to to find her, his warped feelings for her and how he felt when she took him down.
Great introduction book to Nora Roberts.
Maybe the Bones TV Show.
Abigail and Brooks - but I also love Bert.
When she hugs John while Terry is crying, when he tells her to run and when she tells Brook the story.
I wish they didn't bring up her donor father (it wasn't necessary). A little more background on the Ilay, that could have been used filler for the story. With all the issues with this story, it was entertaining and a good read. More of a romance novel that a mystery. Enjoy.
