    Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match... dotcom! An online dating service is not Michelle Snow's idea of how to find love, but when the Big 3-0 hits, Michelle decides she has nothing to lose, since she hasn't brought a date home in 10 years, she's professionally burned out, and her climb up the corporate ladder has come at the expense of abandoning her sweet dream: to own a boutique cupcakery.

    Story
    What disappointed you about True Vows: The Icing on the Cake?

    The story had no excitement in it, at least in the two or three hours I listened to it before I couldn't stand it any longer and went on to another book.


    What was most disappointing about Alison Kent’s story?

    It needed to have something going on to keep my attention in the first hour or two of listening. I use audiobooks to keep myself awake during long trips, and if I have a good book and can't wait to hear what happens next, it does just that. This book actually MADE me sleepy, and I caught myself nodding off many, many times.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Arielle Lipshaw?

    She was fine, it was the story that lacked


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I doubt if I will read the remainder of the book, which probably is the best part, but I will never know. A writer needs to HOLD their audience with a good story if they want them to finish the book, not bore them to death.
