I loved the wit, humor, sweetness, and poignancy of this book. It is spectacularly performed to a T. And the writing is clever, laugh-out-loud funny, and, at times, hits really close to emotional home. This is a highly entertaining murder mystery that will keep you on your toes as amateur sleuth Barbara Marr finds herself neck-deep in a murder mystery that lands practically in her back yard. She solicits a quirky cast of characters to help her solve the mystery and unravel the hilarious and sometimes inane clues.
There is so much memorable about this book that it's hard to pinpoint to one thing. But I'd say the first kiss Barbara's estranged husband gives her is one of the scenes that will stick in my mind for a long time. The scene is bittersweet and filled with both a longing and love for her husband who has walked away from their marriage without any explanation. As the mystery unfolds, we begin to realize the need for Howard's withdraw from his family. However, this initial kiss scene between them is beautiful and heartbreaking.
Barbara Marr. She takes on a life of her own as she speaks the dialogue the author has written for her. Filled with charisma and wit, Barbara is a much-loved favorite!
Yes. Unfortunately, because of life commitments, I had to split it over several days. Yet, each time, I was loathe to walk away from the story and eager to pick it back up as soon as I got back in the car!
I loved everything about this story. It's amazingly well done all around. Bravo Karen Cantwell, bravo Nan McNamara, bravo Barbara Marr! <3
Yes, if you love romance, you'll love this new Rachel Gibson contemporary romance. She gives you a great, sexy romp in her classic sassy, irreverant voice set in Lovett, Texas. These memorable, quirky characters are funny and just close enough to some of those people we may have known in our own small towns to make us identify with the heroine.
The emotional journey of the heroine and hero are excellent in this book. She made me laugh, she made me cry. I loved it.
And Navy SEAL Vince Haven is hot, hot, hot.
Yes. I did read it in one day--between the audio book and the print version. I had it covered in one day. Yay.
Loved this newest by Shannon Stacey. Great emotional ride. Had me laughing and crying. Wonderful hunky Kowalski hero. Spunky conflicted heroine. Fun, witty reparte between the main characters. Crazy Kowalski family that we love so much. Keep them coming!
