The book is a nice bit of fluff that would be the perfect summer beach read. Please note that I wrote "read". I found the narration very distracting and feel that it detracted from my enjoyment of the story.
The narration for the main character was done in "valley girl". Why? She is not from the valley and it is not the 80's. She also mispronounced several celebrity names. How can it be that nobody caught the errors during editing and why wouldn't they have looped in the proper pronunciation? The words she chose to stress during many passages was also bothersome.
If not for the narration I would have rated this 4 stars because the story is what was expected - light, fun and easy, nothing surprising, just a good "beach read".
I was intrigued by the story, but could get no further than the first 30 minutes because the narration was terrible. The performance was stilted and choppy. I will not purchase another book narrated by Julie Francis.
