    Eva Perino is single and proud of it. So proud, in fact, that she regularly boasts about it in her blog, Why I Love Singlehood. But upon learning of her ex-boyfriend’s engagement, Eva discovers her foundation is weaker than her façade. So begins a clumsy (and occasionally uproarious) search for love as she secretly joins an online dating site, tries her hand at speed dating, and gets involved with one of the regulars at her coffee shop, The Grounds.

    What did you love best about Why I Love Singlehood?

    The book had humor, it was smart and kept me interested. I would read/listen to another by this author if she had one.


    What other book might you compare Why I Love Singlehood to and why?

    The humor of the book reminds me of the characters in a Mary Kay Andrews novel. The women were smart, sharp and independent, but had a soft side.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The twist of the scene on the campus with the fire. It was totally unexpected- great tie in


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Unfortunately I don't have the time to listen a book in one sitting, but if I could, this one would have been worth it.

    Story

    When Kirstin Jones agreed to work with her live-in boyfriend, Mason, on a freelance job for a wealthy client, she never thought it might destroy their relationship. But the client's keen observations show her that she's been little more than Mason's shadow. Fed up with his insensitivities, she moves out. Weeks later, desperate to stand on her own, she accepts work with the same client once again. Only this time, the project requires Mason's help. To obtain his aid, she must meet his terms. And what he wants is more than she can afford.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I personally would not recommend.


    What could Claire Ashgrove have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It was the narrator that didn't work for me. The voice was annoying and it literally sounded like she was reading. She didn't engage me in the story at all....it was very painful to listen to and I would not listen to it again. I was very disappointed.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Amber May?

    The women that reads the character of Sophie Katz


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The story might have been good, but I couldn't get past the voice of the narrator. I wanted finish it since I had purchased it.

    Would you listen to The Power of Your Spirit again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen to it again. There are items that I probably missed that I would pick up the second time around.


    What about Sonia Choquette’s performance did you like?

    Her voice is conversational, very easy to listen and follow
