I enjoyed this audiobook, however the writing is definitely nothing compared to Nora Roberts or Susan Elizabeth Philips novels. When those novels are read aloud, the words seem to take on a life of their own. While the characters were great and storyline upbeat and fun, the writing (as it is read by the narrator) is distracting. The author uses the word "said" waaaaaaay too much to describe conversations between characters. It's used so much that at one point, that's all I really heard when the narrator was reading a conversation between characters. I like the storyline, characters and overall mission of the book...but it just isn't as fun to listen to. If you want a great romance author that is upbeat and fun and will get your heart racing and feeling giddy, then I suggest reading/listening to Susan Elizabeth Philips novels.
This was the first SEP book I listened to. The book was hilarious and her characters are all so great. I have since downloaded most of her Chicago Stars books (all but 1 - havent gotten around to it yet). I love the narrator and all her voices. The stories are engaging and funny and full of love. I've read 2 of her books and listened to most of them...they're all lighthearted and a great way to pass time whether youre driving in traffic, doing chores, or working out. It will definitely keep you smiling and sometimes have you bursting out laughing. It doesnt get dull, and sometimes you feel that familiar tug on your heart strings that we readers/listeners of romance or chick lit novels love! I recommend you download the books in order. This is the first book of her Chicago Stars series. They dont need to be read/heard in order, but its more fun that way since she introduces the characters that she uses in her next book in the one prior to it. The next book is titled Heaven Texas in case anyone is wondering.
