Publisher's Summary

The year is 1969. Though there is war and unrest in the world, on August 15th, on a farm in upstate New York, a little concert will go down in history as the most famous music festival of our time: Woodstock. It also happens to be the day Bonnie McMillan and Peter Hampton meet and begin their free-spirited love-filled journey with each other. Fast forward 47 years. Bonnie unexpectedly passes after a night of hot sex and is whisked up to Purgatory, or "The Green Room". Bonnie's best friend meets her at the pearly green gates and the fun begins, from body sculpting to channeling. Follow Bonnie on her erotically incorrect quest to re-connect with the love of her life. Or at the very least, make sure the sex toys are hidden before the kids start sorting through her things!

    Story
    "Hilariously witty and fun!"

    This is my first audio book and I have to admit, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Not only was I able to listen to it while doing menial tasks around the house, but it kept me wildly entertained. Bonnie lands herself in the "in-between" after a wild night of sex with her husband and begins an all new journey. From worrying about her appearance to the fear of her children finding her and her husband's sex toys, the hilarity ensues. Grab this book now for a VERY interesting hour of laughs. You won't regret it!

    "Great Quick Read"
    Any additional comments?

    Desperately Seeking 69 by J.D. Prettier was a great and quick read. I loved reading Peter and Bonnie's story. This was a great story of Purgatory, the place you go when waiting to go to heaven or hell. Only they call it 'The Green Rom'. Bonnie meets her best friend there after her unexpected death. Bonnie goes on a journey to reconnect with Peter, her one true love. She recalls the way they met and their life together. This was a great quick read. I love the authors work and can't wait to read more by her. This is a must read.

    "Fun for lunch!"

    This was such a fun story to listen to! I don't normally read/listen to the "mature" stories but this one was fun and enjoyable and a quick listen while I was cleaning my house. I will definitely look for more!

    "A wonderful quirky story!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Desperately Seeking Sixty-Nine to be better than the print version?

    I think that both the print and audio version are wonderful. I am more of a print person but was pleasantly surprised with how wonderful the audio book was.


    What other book might you compare Desperately Seeking Sixty-Nine to and why?

    This is a one of the kind book for me, I have nothing that could compare to it.


    Have you listened to any of Hollie Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    All of the performances that I have heard by Hollie Jackson have been fantastic. This is no exception.


    Any additional comments?

    This is such a quirky and fun read and to listen to this great book is even better.

    "So fun and refreshing!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Desperately Seeking Sixty-Nine to be better than the print version?

    If you loved the ebook, this will knock you over. The story pops into your ears like it was written to be an audiobook.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Enaid All-enir, dah-ling! Talk about quirky. She had me rolling!


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

    I'm a big fan of Hollie Jackson. You can tell she loves what she does, and this story was no exception. She brought this story to life as if I were living it.


    If you could take any character from Desperately Seeking Sixty-Nine out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Peter, circa 1969, because I wan't to see what I missed out on! I really wish I got to know more about him.

    Story
    "Party Like It's 1969 !"
    Would you listen to Desperately Seeking Sixty-Nine again? Why?

    Oh gosh yes. Why? It's hysterical and a feel good story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It should be a sad story considering someone dies however it shows us a life on the other side and it is so funny and just a feel good story.


    Have you listened to any of Hollie Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes I have and she is an excellent narrator. She does a great job with this story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Bonnie reaches out to her husband Peter or tries too and finds her ex-neighbor making moves on him. HAHA bring on the screeching television too funny.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a funny book to read but even funnier to listen to. I highly recommend if you want a little saucy with your comedy.

    Story
    "Purgatory was never more fun!!"
    What other book might you compare Desperately Seeking Sixty-Nine to and why?

    I have never read a book like this before. So funny!


    What about Hollie Jackson’s performance did you like?

    I always enjoy Hollie Jackson's performances. She delivers comedy so well.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a fun short story of what it's like in the afterlife. Purgatory or "The Green Room" as it's called was an idea so unique and different and quite refreshing than my usual romance listens. It had its sad moments, but for the most part I was laughing so hard. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more by J.D. Frettier. Well done!
