    Emma Corrigan has a long list of secrets, one of which is that she is afraid of flying. Coming back from a thoroughly ruinous sales trip to Glasgow, the plane she is on encounters some air turbulence, and she ends up spilling her guts to the handsome American sitting next to her. He gets to hear that she fibbed to get her current job and that she has never been able to satisfactorily find her G-spot. Then, the plane lands...and the American turns up in her life again. He's the CEO of her company....

    "Cross Bridget Jones and Shopaholic books"
    Overall

    This book was so much fun! I couldn't wait to find excuses to listen to it. It's got all the humor of the Bridget Jones and Shopaholic books, but in this story, the main character begins the story in a happy relationship. There are so many unexpected twists and turns and lots of wacky characters that you won't get bored. I'm sorry that it's over!

  • Undead and Unreturnable: Queen Betsy, Book 4

    Though she's the vampire queen, Betsy Taylor is much more like a princess. In MaryJanice Davidson's novels, this high-maintenance monarch is finally coming to terms with her new status.

    "Fast and funny"
    Overall

    Overall I enjoyed it, but I felt like I was listening to pages 300-500 of a 700 page novel. The author plunges right into the story (takes a while to figure how everyone is related) and then the story ends abruply. This is like listening to an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer as a story.

    Mma "Precious" Ramotswe sets up a detective agency in Botswana on the edge of the Kalahari Desert, making her the only female detective in the country. At first, cases are hard to come by. But eventually, troubled people come to Precious with a variety of concerns. Potentially philandering husbands, seemingly schizophrenic doctors, and a missing boy who may have been killed by witch doctors all compel Precious to roam about in her tiny van, searching for clues.

    Gene says: "Transcends its Genre"
    "Sweet book, a bit boring in places..."
    Overall

    The main character is sweet and has a beautiful philosphy of life. I've spent some time in Africa and found the descriptions interesting. However, the mysteries in this book were very predictable -- I found I could guess what was going to happen in every case. If you want a light novel where "the good guy wins every time," then you won't be dissatisfied with this.
