"A sleek, romantic comedy." (Publishers Weekly)
SEP does it again...This is a wonderful romantic, charming romance and it is laugh out loud funny! The chaos at Bert's funeral is a hysterically funny scenario that paints a picture to set the tone for the entire book. SEP describes these characters so realistically that you would swear you knew them personally. Love the Chicago Stars series and their romances. I've listened to all of them at least 3 times. Read this one before THIS HEART OF MINE as it explains the relationship between Phoebe and Molly. Highly recommended for a fun listen. This is Phoebe and Dan's story, and it is wonderful!
I am a middle school reading teacher who loves to show students the wonder and joy of reading.
Not bad but not her best. I had read the books out of order so it was fun to see how things came together for this family. I still love her work and think the narrator is fabulous.
I really enjoyed this read. I typically read historical, but a contemporary was a nice change of pace. There was a scene in the beginning with Dan's ex-wife that was very unnecessary. I didn't like that. Other than that, I liked it and actually laughed out loud at times. At first I didn't care for the narrator, she was a bit boring at first. Then I grew to not pay attention to that. Good book overall.
I loved this book! I recently listed to Match Me by SEP and decided I just had to go back to the beginning of the series. If you can help it, try not to listen to any other ones in the series first. Since I started with a later book I knew the ending was going to be favorable. Despite that SEP kept me guessing on how she would take me to the end.
The character development was wonderful and the first disaster was great. I found myself trying not to tinkle my pants from laughing so hard at some of the banter between Phoebe and Dan. Great listen; can't wait to check out the others in this series.
This is the first audiobook of Susan Elizabeth Phillips I listened to and was captivated by her humor and quick paced style. I have since purchased most of her other audiobooks and have re-listened to most of them again. Terrific author!
