    "This was fun!"

    Nice discovery and a fun read. I think Suzy Aitchison did a fantastic job and was a big part of what made the book a pleasure. I was in a mood for something light and funny this hit the spot.

    Story
    "Excellent - Knew it was a 10/10 within the 1st hr!"

    Such an excellent read/listen - it had me glued straight from the beginning. Apart from the great storyline of single mother Jo and how she copes with her horrible ex partner/ baby daddy/ boss, the story line of Dan (the Ballon Man), was wonderful.

    Dan's story is explained as flashbacks to the 70's when he was a little boy growing up in a disfunctional household. It takes you back to the time when Liverpool ruled the soccer pitch, Thatcher was the most hated women in Britian and "paste" sandwiches were a treat. It was just captivating. I found myself hanging out to find out the rest of Dan's story.

    The story hits on sensitve/serious issues but the way in which it is written/read, its still a light and throughly enjoyable read with as many funny bits as serious parts.

    If you are like me, you'll have all your fingers crossed for Jo and Dan the Ballon Man to get together.

    I am a total audiobook addict! I travel quite a bit for work and listen to them while I drive. Always searching for a good author to follow

    "No reasons not to read this book"
    Would you listen to 10 Reasons Not to Fall in Love again? Why?

    Yes I will listen to it again, it's such a lovely story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Dan, he was funny, charming and just a great character!


    What about Suzy Aitchison’s performance did you like?

    This is my second book that she narrated that I have listened to, she does a great job and does different voices for each character.


    Any additional comments?

    This is my second Linda Green book, I found out about her when I read a review and I'm so glad I did! Both books have been just wonderful and a joy to listen to. I'm off to download another one now :)

    "A thoroughly Enjoyable Read"
    Where does 10 Reasons Not to Fall in Love rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Molly and Dexter were sound and enjoyable characters, but I really liked Henry.


    What does Suzy Aitchison bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I tend to look for books by Suzy Aitchison, because I have seldom found one she reads that I haven't enjoyed. Also, she has a gift for character voices, in this case she does an amazing job of the baby.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Just enjoyed it a lot. I don't like extreme villains or goody goodies and these were just nice non stressful characters with the "happily ever after' seldom in doubt.


    Any additional comments?

    I have since found another Linda Green book and am enjoying it too.

    "Well worth a listen"

    Enjoyed this, was warm and poignant. The narration was a bit clipped for my taste, leaving me less connected with the heroine than I would have liked. But well worth a listen
