    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.

    Story
    Have you listened to any of Suehyla El-Attar’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to a few other performances of Suehyla El-Attar before. I really like her narrating style. This one was just like the others: it was just good.


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

    Definitely!
    Before I knew I was halfway through and it was the middle of the night. I found that I didn't start listening to this story, I was in the story from the very first minute.


    Any additional comments?

    I like a nice romance now and then. Especially if the characters are likeable and Eva is very likeable. I could really relate to her too. I had the feeling I knew where she's coming from right from the beginning.
    All the other characters are likeable as well. It's easy to see why they're friends with Eva. I could even see my own friends in them. I especially liked Norman. The way Eva and he work together, laugh together and rationalise their relationship seems very familiar to me. I actually have a colleague like that.
    This all adds up to quite a nice and lovely story with a good dose of humour.

    Joe has a beautiful house, a great job and no commitments - and he likes it like that. All he needs is a quiet house-sitter for his seaside retreat. When Tess turns up, he's not sure she's right for the job. Her past is a blank and she's something of an enigma. But there's something about her and it looks as though she's here to stay....

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I liked the book, but I did not love it.
    I did like the humour and the setting of the story. Which begins with Tess just driving off to a new life. It seems like something I would do and therefore is a very good start of the story.
    But for some reason Joe didn't sound real to me. It was just the way he was narrated. Everything Joe said was spoken quite harsh by Phoebe James. It actually got a bit annoying at 3/4 of the book.
    If you love chicklits and romantic stories, than this is a nice read. But to be honest there are better books.
