I love Mary Kay Andrews' books in general, and so was very excited to get going on this one. I was not disappointed. It is not my MOST favorite of hers (Savannah Blues and Savannah Breeze are my faves, also liked The Fixer Upper) but still very fun and had me laughing out loud in parts. It is a little Nancy Drewish but that is ok with me because as a kid I liked those too. If you want lighthearted fun reading with a little bit of suspense thrown in, I reccommend it.
I think the performance really affected my appreciation of this book. There is something very annoying about the over-enunciation. I never felt a real connection to the main characters...they didn't seem particularly deep. The heroine is a little girl and the hero is annoyingly arrogant with no redeeming features. Sometimes I wish Jude would stop over-plotting and work on character development a little more. I miss her strong, independent, sassy female characters. I miss the humor.
I loved this book. Dave is great at writing humor, but his character development is excellent as well. He is a master at bringing together a zany group of mismatched characters and events and mixing them into a goofy but fascinating storyline. I highly recommend if you need some upbeat comedy in your life.
I was surprised how much I enjoyed this selection. I liked how the relationships built between the characters while they were working on restoring the old house. The characters had depth and the storytelling was great. I also loved The Accidental Bestseller, and am eager to try some of the other books by this author.
After reading the other review, I was sceptical about getting this one, even though I have enjoyed other Balogh novels. Although not high literature, this recording was a pleasant enough surprise. I enjoyed the slightly flightly main character, who is somewhat more lighthearted than Balogh's other more serious heroines. It was worth using a credit.
Engaging southern fiction/ couldn't turn it off. I highly recommend this one. I will probably listen to it again at some point.
I am usually a fan, so was sad when this book took a downward spiral into a whiny mess.
This one was definitely worth my time. An entrancing mystery/ ghost story...
