I like Penelope Keith Agatha Raisin the most of all the narrators.
Yes, Charles is my favorite of her boyfriends. I like Agatha, she is brash, rude, bawdy can be quite nasty at times but other times I can really relate to her and she gets away with things we can't in real life without being fired or ostracized.
I got There Goes the Bride from itunes also by Penelope Keith and just love all the Agatha Raisin books read by Penelope Keith.
she is Agatha to me and she can go between the voices with ease and I don't even notice it.
I laugh and I enjoy this book. I have purchased it in January and have listened to it at least 6 times.
Agatha is comical, I love how she can get rude but M.C. Beaton doesn't have her go so far as to swear but she will give great descriptions like Agatha told the two men to perform physically impossible acts on themselves and you know what she means but the context and the situation is funny.
Her cooking attempts are hilarious. I recommend this one, There Goes the Bride, the Haunted House and the Deadly Dance are really funny.
Narrator nasal and annoying. Nothing new here, very boring. Superior snotty upitty tone.
I am returning this book. I feel like I am listening to a snot carry on.
This book tells you what you do not want to hear and gives practical and helpful advice about working on yourself.
I have read a lot of dating books since becoming single again. The flirting tips are all good and by the way girls, it is not the makeup that drives the men wild, it is the bombshell walk, shoulders back, stand up straight walk with confidence and move your hips side to side when you walk.
I think this is an excellent book. You don't have to tell anyone you read it but I do think the chapters about drama and things that we all do and do not mean to and then we are crying again because we sabotaged a great relationship.
This is the book for you, grab a box of tissues and listen and open to your heart to it and I think you will see a difference.
No one. It is written for preschoolers. Waste of my time and money.
No I liked four friends by Robyn Carr
Angela Dawe or Bianca amato
All of it.
Save your credit read it from the library so u do not waste your money.
I like getting the perspective of a single woman in Paris. I think she is too obsessed with dessert though and I am surprised she is not diabetic or a member of the differently sized community.
I like these French memoir books but I also fetal they romanticize life in Paris. It is a city like my other. I do not believe in the French mystique but enjoy the story as being this woman's experience.
Probably. To see how her writing style changes.
Narrator was fine not great but not bad either
Enjoy the sunlight and fresh air
How can she not be diabetic and weigh 300? Other people I know that eat like this a lot of health problems.
I also think the author comes across as a bit spoiled and ungrateful for het blessings in life. Would like to see a more appreciative attitude for what she has. I do not mean become phony and a bragger but I never detect gratitude. She is fortunate to have the nice job in NYC and to go to Paris and have these lovely experiences.
I did not like how the author merged events in Handel's life that took part over 30 years and merged them all around when he wrote the Messiah in August 1741 as if
they all happened then.
was already interested before hand.
not wrong, not good either just okay, his portrayal of Handel was offensive the narrator and author made Handel sound like some fat pompous idiot and he was not that. Yes he had his fault but we all do but Handel was very creative genius, very smart and had a lot more elegance than these two give him credit.
This book does not give Handel his due, it does not do him justice. This is not the Handel I know and love.
Just be in paper. There are a lot of checklists, repetition and boring. This is a lot of common sense and if you do not already know a lot of this then you should not be in HR or a Manager.
Laws are specific to the jurisdiction you are operating your business in, therefore it is good practice to consult legal counsel do not go by what a general book says.
A leadership book
A lot of the checklists and I would have made them available as reference material.
Common sense. Respect your employees, pay well and have open communication. Do not promote or create a work environment of two faced or stab in the back. Be consistent.
To attract and retain top talent, pay enough to live decently in the area your business is in.
I think managers are better off focusing on being good managers and have the print version on hand but focus on self development.
And above all, do not have the work environment threatening they employees will constantly get the ax. That is not going to make your employees feel good rather it will promote anxiety and resentment and you will have a high turnover.
Respect your employees and have healthy work boundaries and I also recommend Miss Manners Minds Your Business. That book has a lot of helpful information for businesses.
I like the realistic potrayal of this nasty woman. I did not like her and it removes the glamour and romance and shows the truth.
Yes I would.
Be grateful I am who I am
This book confirmed what I thought of Wallis she was a nasty piece of work and got what she deserved. Good book and shows what really happened.
No one. Rebecca is selfish, foolish with spending, spoiling Mini and just all around if I knew her I would want to slap her to get her to see reality.
I think this series has petered out and I am not going to waste anymore of my money on this junk. I do like some of Sophie Kinsella's other books like The UnDomestic Goddess and Rosalyn Landor does the best she can with this manuscript but it is time to let this series go.
As another reviewer said, what was maybe cute and endearing when Rebecca was in her early 20s is now so obnoxious and bordering on crazy.
Have Rebecca have a better grip on reality. She comes up with crazy ideas that are negative foolish, she does not take anyone else into account. I can't stand this character Rebecca and Mini is a little snot.
Rosalyn did the best she could. I think she was fine.
98% of it and told her to rewrite. I think some authors get to a certain level of success as Sophie Kinsella did and then they get lazy and since they have a following they produce sloppy writing which this is.
No but approach it for what it is
I am a Titanic Enthusiast so I wanted to give this a chance. It is entertaining but I do not believe he really is the reincarnated Thomas Andrews from the Titanic. All said is all researchable fact and they entertain for a few hours. It is like a snapshot of probably what Thomas Andrews would have felt and he does not have the right accent for the region Thomas Andrews was from.
Also, someone with his ambitions would have tried to initiate a more cultured voice and not continue with the lower class accent.
They did not convince me they were really reincarnated.
Yes, I purchased the audio and the print from amazon kindle
the love scene in the interview, spanking and chocolate on some unmentionable body parts but really hot and sexy
the interview in the kitchen when they have sex in the kitchen and he spanks her
not extreme but I did enjoy it
This book does have spanking and b&D which is bondage and domination and explicit scenes. If you like that sort of thing this is a really good book but if you are looking for something to give to grandma to listen to and she wants something "nice" this is not your book. If you want something "nice" check out Debbie Macombers books or any of the Christian inspirational they have no sex in them. This has great sex scenes.
