    "Not worth the time"

    I normally love Susan Mallery books, but the story line was so implausible in this book that I just couldn't get into it from the start. And the narrator's voice just added to the awfulness of this audiobook. Her breathiness and inflection was irritating. Don't bother with this book.

    I am a Serial MultiTasker. Pretty much daily while I am at work I listen to Audiobooks. Some books I have listened to 3 to 5 times. Luv it.

    "Friendship an unwavering Devotion."
    Would you listen to Finding Perfect again? Why?

    Yes I have listened 3 times already. Pia is awesome and such a great person and Raoul is such a welcome character. It is nice to see what happens to himself since he is from the Sweet series. I will read again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Finding Perfect?

    When he offers to be her "buddy". It shows character and your heart squeezes.


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

    Yes. She is consistently awesome.


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

    Yes. When she agrees to "do it". You will understand after you listen. I don't want any spoiler alerts.


    Any additional comments?

    I cant get enough. These books have brought me into this genre. I didn't use to read stuff like this. Between these and a couple other authors I have gotten hooked.

    "Finding Perfect"

    This series was really great. I listened to the complete Fools Gold series and enjoyed all the books. This is a great author and I have enjoyed all of the book I read. The lead into the next book flowed well, the characters are well defined and showed the human side of the lives we live.

    "Not bad..."

    This isn't my favorite Susan Mallery series, but this third installment to the series isn't half bad (in comparison to the first two books of the series). The story is mildly pleasant, and the characters are likable enough. If you really want a good Susan Mallery series, look for her Buchanan series (starting with Delicious). To me, this Fools Gold series as a whole just lacks the WOW factor of some of SM's earlier work.

    "Story good, narrator NOT"

    Of the three in the series this was the best story. The narration made me take 2 stars away from what could have been a great audiobook. Tanya Eby has very strange stop/starts, awkward pauses and poor voices for characters. Don't let her ruin the story for you. Read it instead of listening.

    Story
    "Refreshingly Sweet"
    What did you love best about Finding Perfect?

    I loved this book. The story was both engaging and entertaining with a Happy Ending.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Pia was my favorite character. Susan Mallery has a way of writing her character that is endearing. She's not too overly perfect, yet she has this intrinsic goodness.


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

    The narration is just okay to be honest. It wasn't horrible, but some of the voices she uses are a little odd.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, actually I usually listen to books at work. This one I took home because I wanted to finish. Such a nice story.
