    Life is sweet for chocolate maker Chloe Lyon…Business is booming at her artisan chocolate-makers 'Chocolate Wishes' in the picture-perfect Lancashire village of Sticklepond - not least because all of Chloe's sweet treats contain an inspirational prediction for each customer. If only her own life was as easy to read in the cards, perhaps Chloe could have foreseen being jilted at the altar….

    I listen to an audiobook every week or so and love them. This is the most disappointing one I have ever listened to. If I hadn't paid for it I would not have finished it.

    Shauna and Greg's marriage is under pressure from 'The Freeloaders', Della, Eddie and their spoilt kids. They arrive at her home at the drop of a hat, stay as long as they like, and eat and drink all around them without lifting a finger to help. Shauna's glad to be moving abroad - but three thousand miles won't stop the determined Della. Carrie, Shauna's sister, can't help feeling put upon. The burden of looking after their elderly, hypochondriac father rests on her and she's fed up of it.

    When you get to chapter 2 of Part 1, this changes to a totally different book for 2 chapters then returns to the book, having missed a chunk.

    Two women live in the same Boston suburb. The two have relatively little in common aside from a fierce love for their children. But one night, a tragic accident causes their lives to converge in ways no one could have imagined.

    I listen to about 1 audio book a week and I did make it through this book ok, but it did drag on for a very long time. I never buy Abridged versions, but maybe I would have enjoyed this more if it were half the length. I was VERY pleasantly suprised at how wonderful Cynthia Nixon (Sex and the City) is as a Narrator! More please!!!!

    New Year is looming and best friends Liza, Dulcie and Pru are making their resolutions. Liza wants to get married - she's never had any trouble hooking a man. The trouble is, she can never stay interested once she's got him. Dulcie thinks marriage sucks. Her husband, Patrick, may be gorgeous and charming, but the impulsive Dulcie needs more excitement in her life. She wants a divorce. Pru loves her roving husband, and she secretly enjoys the periods when he's making up for his outrageous behaviour.

    I love this author but this book seemed to go forever and ever..... I did manage to make it to the end but can't even remember what it was about now.

    What do you do when the love of your life turns out to be a good-for-nothing love rat? a) Pour your heart out to him in private letters that he’ll never see? b) Pretend it’s not happening and carry on? c) Create a blog and tell the whole world about your problems? Three very different women have one thing in common - a good-for-nothing Casanova called Charlie. When he betrays them, they choose three equally different ways to cope. But can they ever get over him? And will the love rat ever learn his lesson?

    This is my favourite author with my favourite narrator! Until now, Diary of a Demented Housewife (same author) was my favourite, but this was FANTASTIC! Loved everything about it (except the fact it ended).

    This book sounded like just the kind I read, but I spend most of the book wondering if I should give up.... I found the narrator really wishy washy too, I don't think her voice is strong enough to be a narrator.

    When Pauline Watkins wakes up one morning to discover she's 39, she decides Something Must Be Done -- about her marriage, her routine job, her routine life. Fairexchange.biz offers a solution: swap her council estate semi for paradise in Australia. On the other side of the world, Lorna Mackenzie has reached a similar conclusion. A family wedding provides the excuse for Lorna to sweep her mother and faithless husband up and head to Chez Watkins.

    I am addicted to audio books and listen to about 1 a week and I have enjoyed this one the least. I found some of the accents very annoying and some of the storylines beyond even Chick Lit believable!

    I listen to a lot of audio books and I think this is the most disappointing one so far... I spent the whole book waiting for a purpose, then when it appeared, the book was literally over.

    When Susie's maiden aunt gives her a housekeeping journal, she expects Susie to use it for jotting down nutritious recipes and planning household budgets. But Susie has more important things on her mind... Like how to keep sane while trying to control a four-year-old diva who thinks she's Judy Garland, as well as a thrill-seeking toddler with a death wish?
