I so enjoyed this book. I've listened to several Jennifer Crusie books and I've enjoyed them all, but this one is my all time favorites. I adore the characters, the banter, the entire story. It is fun, and I have already listened to it twice.
I know this book was set in a coffee house, but couldn't believe the amount of time dedicated to coffee. How to brew it correctly, this way or that way - turkish, espresso, etc. How normal people store their coffee incorrectly, the HORROR. It was very repetitive to me. The story wasn't horrible, but I won't be buying any more books in this series. The book seemed more about coffee to me than the murder/mystery.
I like Nora Roberts - have read lots of her books. But I had a horrible time with this one. I just could not like the main character, Margo. Throughout most of the book she was completely self absorbed, and happy about it. Or sad that her life had to change. I stuck it through to the end, but I am torn about the other 2 books in the trilogy. I actually like the other two women much better than Margo. So I'm tempted to give them a chance. But I has very disappointed in this one.
I love this town. I love these people. I have read several of the books in the series and I so enjoy getting to continue to see glimpses of the characters years down the road, after "their" story has already been told.
This story is about Mel and Jack - it all starts here.
Hard to pick one. I ADORE Therese as a narrator. I can absolutely tell who is talking, her range in voice is amazing. That can be one of my pet peeves about listening to audio books, having to wait for the "said so-and-so" to figure out who is talking now. Some narrators just can't differentiate enough. Therese Plummer is excellent, I love listening to her.
I liked the book, at first. I couldn't finish it. She kept getting more injured and then taking crazy risks, as I guess teenagers are prone to do. But her two friends just sat by and let her continue. I know they are just kids, but I just couldn't read anymore I was so tired of waiting for the axe to fall on her, again. And have her friends be upset and unhappy but do nothing, again.
Loved the Bride Quartet series, but this was definitely my least favorite. Helps flesh out the series, and I'm glad I read it before book 4, but was lacking compared to the others in the series.
I have read many other books by Sheryl Woods and really enjoyed them. I just didn't feel this one. It had potential. . . I enjoyed the characters, but they lacked the ability to make me feel for them, or be emotionally invested in them. The book left a lot of things undeveloped, and unfinished in my mind. I re-listen to audio books a lot - helps me stick to unenjoyable tasks (exercise, cleaning). I will not be listening to this one again.
Not nearly as good
