    No woman in her right mind would consent to wearing a corset for a month. Especially a "skinny-challenged" woman like Tessa. But dreams of being debt-free dance in her head at the offer of appearing in a reality TV show. "A Month in the Life of a Victorian Duke" is about real people pretending to live on an English estate, circa 1879. And Tessa's leading man - a real-life duke - is so handsome she can barely breathe, with or without the corset....

    It doesn't get much worse than this. The plot is nonexistent, the dialogue is boring, & the narration is so annoying.

    Sadie Hutchins loves her job at the Kentucky Tourism Commission. Not only could her co-workers double as the cast of Parks and Recreation, but she loves finding the unusual sites, hidden gems, and just-plain-odd tourist attractions of her home state. She’s a shoo-in for the director’s job when her boss retires at the end of the year…until hotshot Josh Vaughn shows up to challenge her for the position. Josh is all sophisticated polish while Sadie’s country comfort, and the two have very different ideas of what makes a good campaign.

    This story lacks the creative & witty repartee that usually makes Molly Harper's books fun. Save your credit, skip this one!

    This book is so boring. The character development is poor & there is almost no plot. Half of the book consists of the main characters being angry & upset with each other. This is a boring & unenjoyable book.

    When Carolyn’s grown daughter tells her she needs to “get a life,” Carolyn decides it’s time to step out of her familiar routine as a single woman in San Francisco and escape to her mother’s home in the Canary Islands. Since Carolyn’s mother is celebrating her seventieth birthday, the timing of Carolyn’s visit makes for a perfect surprise. The surprise, however, is on Carolyn when she sees Bryan Spencer, her high school summer love.

    The main character laments the loss of her husband into chapter 13 (that's where I was when I decided to get another book), so it has a sad feel for over half of the book.

    I was not in the mood for or was I expecting a murder mystery!
    The narrator was good except for one character who was a high pitched baby voiced woman; annoying.

    Min Dobbs knows that happily-ever-after is a fairy tale, especially with a man who asked her to dinner to win a bet. Cal Morrisey knows commitment is impossible, especially with a woman as cranky as Min Dobbs. When they say good-bye at the end of their evening, they cut their losses and agree never to see each other again. But Fate has other plans.

    All the "he said" & "she said"s are very annoying. Poor writing, lame plot, & boring.

    Readers and listeners have followed Jen Lancaster through job loss, sucky city living, weight loss attempts, and 1980s nostalgia. Now Jen chronicles her efforts to achieve cultural enlightenment, with some hilarious missteps and genuine moments of inspiration along the way. And she does so by any means necessary: reading canonical literature, viewing classic films, attending the opera, researching artisan cheeses, and even enrolling in etiquette classes to improve her social graces.

    Yolanda Stiger says: "hilarious"

    This book has no momentum. It's like listening to someone read their ridiculous blog of superficial & idiotic thoughts without any point what so ever.

    Not nearly as good as this author's other 2 books, which I thoroughly enjoyed. So much back and forth that keeping up with the characters and what timeframe they belonged in was confusing.
