I cannot say enough about this book - it is an incredible story with an amazing narrator! If I could only recommend one audio book to someone, this would be it!
I thought this was a very cute, light-hearted story with some laugh out loud dialog. If you are looking for something fun in the chick lit department, this book is perfect. The narrator didn't drive me nuts like she did others, but she did pause a lot. Don't let that sway your decision - it is still a great listen.
It is worth the time, but the issue is not only is the audio talent less than spectacular, the audio quality is really bad at times. The narrator sounded like she was under water at times.
The story was fun and entertaining. I will buy the next book, simply because I like the character.
The narrator spoke much too quickly a lot of the time. Her voice was a bit annoying, but I didn't mind it as much as some of the reviewers. My main complaint is the quality of the audio - I have listened to hundreds of books and never heard this type of problem. I am starting book two and found that it has the same issue.
I really enjoyed this book, because it was so well written and the characters were so well developed. This is a story of someone who has a very hard life, but keeps moving forward and surviving, in spite of continual challenges.
I liked this book so much I walked around with my iPod on until I finished it. It is a feel-good story about a clever girl who doesn't bend to conform with the expectations of her family and some how stubles on a huge opportunity to be the matchmaker for a big sports agent. There is nothing intellectual about this book, but if you are looking for some light-hearted, fun chick lit - this is a good book for you!
I really liked this book. It was interesting, because it was largely set in Africa, so it made you think about what it would like to try to do business in different parts of that country. I love stories about incredibly smart, strong, capable women, which is one reason I really liked this story. It also had an interesting element of espionage and secret underground dealings.
I read and really liked three other books by this author, but this one was not good. This book was pretty much the same story line as This Heart of Mine, except with a poor story line and very unlikely conflict elements. If you want to read good books by this author, I would recommend sticking to Natural Born Charmer or Match Me if You Can - much better stories and characters. I do like the way that the same characters keep showing up in other stories though, so if you want to know the whole sequence of events, this will give you a little back story on Kevin Tucker.
