Publisher's Summary

Jill Fryman (Friday to her friends) is a line supervisor at a truck manufacturing plant in a small southern Indiana town. Life on the assembly line is almost as predictable as her love life. When it comes to matters of the heart, Friday always seems to be making the wrong choices. Things go from bad to worse when El, a sultry labor organizer from the UAW, sweeps into town to unionize the plant right after it's been bought out by a Japanese firm. Sparks fly on and off the line as Jill and El fight their growing attraction for each other against a backdrop of monster trucks, catfish dinners, Pork Day USA, and a bar called Hoosier Daddy.

    "A Laugh Out Loud Joy Ride"

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading "Hoosier Daddy" when it first came out as a paperback. I wondered if an audio version would be like a movie based on a book which is rarely as good as the book. The answer is that the audio version of "Hoosier Daddy" is every bit as good as the book. Christine Williams brought the characters to life in her excellent narration of the story. It truly is a laugh-out-loud fun experience to listen to this book. I highly recommend the audio version of "Hoosier Daddy."

    "Surprised at how good it is"
    Any additional comments?

    This book was terrific because the characters had depth and the humor was great. I also learned a bit about Indiana. I frequently finding myself wishing editors would take more time or pay more attention when I read lesbian fiction. This book was well written. The characters were consistent and had multi-dimensional personalities.

    It was much better than most of it's genre - enjoy!

    "Friends"

    As always Ann can tell his story some parts are very funny. If you have a chance to listen to all of her audiobooks you will not be disappointed.

    "One of the best audiobooks"

    Ann McMan and Salem West hit this one out of the park. Solid writing with obvious research done around the subject, extremely engaging story, and more of McMan's signature characters combine here to make this a must listen. I want to go back and listen to the whole thing again! Jericho was masterful, and Aftermath was great fun, but this may have outdone them. Sit back and enjoy. Christine Williams again brings perfect narration to every voice.

    Story
    "Funny and Lovely"

    A reoccurring theme that has resonated with me lately is the concept of "You fill me." and all of the related meanings. The idea of "at first sight..." *shrug* it might exist. Finding someone who can balance us that leads to friendship is very possible. One way or another, this story had me laughing so hard, my stomach still hurts, and I had to while tears away. What gentle fun.

    "Hilarious and Sweet"

    I couldn't stop listening to this book. I laughed out loud. I have recommended it to friends. I have purchased other books by this author because of how great this one was, and they lived up to her high standards as well.
