"Carlson's knack for humor and whimsical plots makes this a delicious chick-lit entry that fans will relish." (Library Journal)
I was unable to get through this one. Typically I'm able to finish even when the story is not very good - not this one!
I loved the lead character, Gretchen, because she was so witty and easy to identify with.
I laughed out loud all the way through this book. You don't normally find a lot of humor in Christian/Inspirational fiction so it was a really nice surprise to be chuckling from start to finish. As soon as I finished this book, I hurried to see what other audiobooks were available from this author. I can't wait to read more!!!
I thought it would be funnier, it wasn't really. It was good enough, a bit entertaining but rather kind of sad and of course you see the happily ever after coming a mile away. That was alright if the rest was a bit more interesting.
I own a small shop selling custom/costume Jewelry. I love to listen to audio books while I create jewelry. I love all animals and get very upset when they aren't treated well, even in fiction.
A really fun novel. Written so that we share the experiences of the characters. A fantastic airplane/holiday read. One to listen to over and over again!
Good beach listen...I thought it was cute - although I too was taken aback by the whole Christian angle. I have a real interest in houses and remodeling, though, so I loved that.
I mostly enjoyed this book, but was a little taken aback that it is an "inspirational" book. I wish it would have mentioned that in the description. It pushed a little too much in that direction for my liking. The rest of the story was very cute but some of the situations she got herself into were a little crazy.
I wish that this book's Christian angle would have been stated up front. I am not interested in this nonsense, and would not have ordered this had I known it was a Christian novel. On top of that, it is terrible. Just awful. Do not waste your time or money. I will remember not to order anything from Melody Carlson.
