    Anglophile. Prefer only British fiction and mysteries. Good translations of Italian, too.

    "A brilliant read!"
    Would you listen to Whatever It Takes again? Why?

    I would, especially when it has been awhile and I've forgotten the plot or I'm dying for a good Brit book/


    Would you be willing to try another book from Adele Parks? Why or why not?

    Yes. I have bought and read all of her books that you have to offer.


    Which character – as performed by Charlotte Strevens – was your favorite?

    ELOUISE!


    If you could take any character from Whatever It Takes out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Elouise because she is witty, interesting and companionable.


    Any additional comments?

    This is not a chick lit, although you put it in that category. This book reminds me of some of Joanna Trollope's books. The complexity of the characters, the wit and unexpected plot twists are superb. As satisfying a read as a really delicious dinner out. The dialogue is perfect and I like the range of ages in the characters.

    I would definitely recommend this audiobook to a friend on their holiday. The story is relaxing and yet full of surprise.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Whatever It Takes?

    The most memorable moments are when Margate saved little poppy and Mark rand and found them. It is all about love.


    What about Charlotte Strevens’s performance did you like?

    I like the narrator. The sound is smooth and touching


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    love, comedy


    Any additional comments?

    This is my first read of Adele Parks. I immediately fall in love with the book. In the story no one is perfect (especially Eloise) , however, everyone tries take whatever it takes to get what they want. I like the title, it's not only about Eloise's friend who tries to have a kid, but EVERYONE.
