    "enjoyable story and narration"

    I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook - primarily because of the narration. If not for such amazing narration, I would've found this book to be just another cliche, single-girl-in-the-big-city story . . . with such creative narration I was able to enjoy the story much more. The reader did an outstanding job of giving each character their own distinct voice . . . it was hard to believe there wasn't an entire cast of actors telling the story. Highly recommended!

    "Very Enjoyable"

    At first, I thought this book might be a mistake. I wasn't too crazy about the opening chapter, and I wasn't sure if I liked the main character. I'm really glad I stuck with it though. The novel is sweet and adorable, and the characters are funny and realistic. I loved the dynamic between the two sisters -- it was familiar and made me laugh. The novel takes its time and sets up a lovely, cozy world that provides a wonderful escape.

    "Not War and Peace but still...."

    My husband and I listened to this book as we were traveling by plane and ferry. What I would have described as "chick lit" before I read it became more as my husband was as engrossed as I was. I liked it a lot. Yes, it was pretty cliche in some places but it was still funny and touching and the perfect diversion as we were traveling. I loved the part with the cat...what a goofy name.

    "Ugh!"

    I stopped listening 1/2 way through. The characters were so cutesy and painfully predictable that I just couldn't take any more.
