    "Great writing and solid narration"

    I like an easy romantic storyline that still packs in smart and sassy dialogue between the characters. I truly appreciate that the female characters in this book have a down-to-earth opinion of men, appreciating their good side without 'waxing philosophical' and placing them on corny pedestals. Best of all, the canine heroine is divinely conveyed by the talented narrator who adds just the right amount of sass to the character. Enjoyment of the storyline as read by the talented narrator should mentally tune out any technical difficulty.

    Technically speaking the production isn't very good at some points but is NOT so bad that one cannot enjoy the talent of the writer and narrator.

    "Very fun and inventive story"

    This was a great summer listen. I enjoyed the unique plot, and I thought the writer had some great, new ideas in this story line. The characters were extremely easy to follow, and the narrator was very good at differentiating between them. The narrator did a wonderful job of bringing out the humor in this work of fantasy fiction. The character of the leading dog, Miss Piggy, was especially entertaining and very well performed. I would recommend this story to anyone who has ever wondered what goes on in the mind of his or her own pet.

    "Light Reading"

    It's an unusual and interesting concept the author has used. Definitely an adult fairytale, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Escapism is good for relaxation and, by the end, everyone (characters) are happy, more or less.

    "Otherwise Good Book made Smutty"

    A good book was ruined by too much sex detailing. It had a good plot and characters. The kissing scene details on the hike were sufficient. When the vet stayed to protect her later on--let the reader use his own imagination. Too much swearing also. One or two cuss words would be sufficient to get the point across. It would have been a classy book without the author trying to tittelate her readers.

    "Light and fun listen"

    Amy is a nice woman who made the mistake of marrying and relying on the wrong man. It is hard enough to discover that your husband has been murdered, but even worse to learn he was with your best friend who was a female version of a ‘tom cat’. Things look bleak for Amy when her house burns down a short time later.

    Amy is trying to recover from the pain of betrayal and loss. She is focused on making her own living as a freelance photographer, and rescuing an abandoned Welsh Corgi, rather than finding a man. She knows this newly rescued dog, dubbed Miss Piggy, has some strangely human mannerisms but she has no way of knowing that the dog is her traitorous best friend sent back to help Amy find “Mr. Right”.

    Jeff is a veterinarian who has a laid back practice and enjoys volunteering at the local shelter. When Amy arrives at the shelter to foster a dog he is immediately interested in the understatedly attractive widow. He continues to make efforts to see Amy even with interference from the dog with rather strange behaviors.

    Miss Piggy, who speaks in first person as Amy’s deceased friend, Lydia, has been assigned the task of finding the right new husband for Amy. Although disgruntled with the task, Lydia realizes that she must do her best or she may be stuck in this doggie body forever. Lydia doesn’t see any potential in Jeff with whom she had one boring date. Instead Lydia champions the interest of a successful, handsome, TV reporter who was a friend of Amy’s cheating husband.

    This is a really fun story and easy listen. I enjoyed Jeff’s persistence to show Amy he would be a good and secure companion, unlike her first husband. I like how Amy’s character was able to grow beyond her past and the demeaning husband to expect more. I also enjoyed the mystery as it developed. Even though it was fairly obvious, it was still fun to watch Amy as she stepped into danger before completely piecing together all the connections.

    The writing is solid and the switch from third person view to first person is well done and effectively used. The story is light and the dog view adds humor. Readers should be in the mood for light mystery and fun instead of expecting any great literature or thriller. I was in the right mood and would enjoy another book by this author when looking for a book of similar easy and light entertainment.

    Audio Notes: I will admit that when I first stared listening I wasn’t sure if I would like the narration. Once I accepted that the narration fit well with Lydia’s selfish view of life it flowed well. I would be willing to try other audio books narrated by Barbara Rosenblat.

    Story
    "Cute romance with some twists"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Finding Mr. Right to be better than the print version?

    I like the convenience of audiobooks. I can be walking the dog or driving while listening. I think the narrator of this and other Carmichael books is wonderful how she brings life to the characters with different inflections of here voice for each. In particular the voice of Lidia Keen is so funny and filled with attitude.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lidia/Piggy just the idea of the spirit gorgeous woman being inside the body of a corgi is funny. How the character is so insulted by dog habits and the restrictions that she has considering the task put upon her.


    Which character – as performed by Barbara Rosenblat – was your favorite?

    Roberta Roe in a Ghost for Maggie.
    In this book Lidia.


    Any additional comments?

    I like Emily Carmichael writing for a fun read. There is romance the sex scene (only one or two per book) are tasteful and don't go into graphic detail. And the twist of the mystery is great way to balance the romance and humor. Also personally I liked reading a book set in Colorado since I live here.

    Story
    "Light Romance, Thriller & Lassie"

    Very light reading for the summer, it scratches on romance, crime investigation and a bit of snippets here and there of views from a dog. It is neither bad not good, overall is just a simple book to kill some time you have at hand.

    Great performance by Barbara.

    Story
    "Not to my taste - shallow and obvious"
    What disappointed you about Finding Mr. Right?

    Everything is spelled out in painful detail for the reader, who is apparently presumed to be stupid.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Emily Carmichael again?

    No.


    What didn’t you like about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance?

    I love Barbara Rosenblat, which is why I tried this book. I guess she just didn't have decent material to work with this time.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Finding Mr. Right?

    There was way too much exposition all the way through the book. And I spent way too long having figured obvious things out while the heroine blundered on, oblivious. At times I actually wished the villain would just hurry up and do away with her.

    Story
    "AS BLAND AND LUMPY AS UNSWEETENED OATMEAL"

    This story had nothing going for it. I was looking for humor and entertainment and yet what I got was a terribly bland (especially the heroine) experience with no help from the narrator. So much was wrong:

    --Heroine was beyond blah and too bitter from cheating husband to be interesting (the same husband she ignored for her dogs. That marriage was doomed.)

    --Cheating best friend was a lifelong self-absorbed twit and should never have been a best friend.

    --Dog "angel" couldn't communicate with heroine, which would have added interest, but could only talk to herself and that became annoying.

    --Heroine is a photographer and when her car gets broken into and her house is burned down she sees no connection??

    --Villain was far far too obvious.

    --Narrator used a blah, meandering voice that made this boring book close to unbearable.
