But Fate has other plans, and it's not long before Min and Cal are dealing with a jealous ex-boyfriend, Krispy Kremes, a determined psychologist, chaos theory, a mutant cat, Chicken Marsala, and more risky propositions than either of them ever dreamed of, including the biggest gamble of all: real love.

"Hurst's voice contains an energy and exuberance that leaves little doubt that she's the perfect narrator for Crusie's heartfelt comedy of errors....[A] zesty, vibrantly told tale." (Publishers Weekly)
This is a warm fuzzy story. I enjoyed the story, the narrator, and the ending. I recommend this to anyone who like a light, happy story. It has fun voice, funny scenes, and very fun characters. If you're a fan of romance, I think you just might like this story.
I am a real fan of JC's books. She writes fun, smart, interesting, stories with such great dialog. This is one of my favorites. The stories she writes are well worth the investment because they are a great listen more than once. IN fact I think you enjoy them more if you listen more than once. These characters fell in love so lovely. Thank you JC. I appreciate the work you put into your work. I love your stories.
i read this book about a year ago and was delighted to find the audiobook on sale here. Lovable characters, plausible romance, cute conversation... i loved the book and enjoyed the audiobook as well. Jennifer Crusie's best so far! Definitely a good bet
This was a great one from JC! The characters were smart and funny and I especially liked that she focuses on one couple, so I could really get to know the characters and see the arc of their relationship. I know she does mystery/fun caper stories, but I like her best when she hones in on one relationship. Fun, light listen!
I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
You can’t help but immediately like the heroine in this story. This story is all about a bet. In most of the plots using this device, the bet is not exposed until the end and then there is the predictable blow-up. Not here, Min knows about the bet up front, well most of it anyway. Deanna Hurst does a good job narrating the story. One thing that I like about this novel is you connect with the characters pretty quickly and there are six different points of view – good job. This is a pleasant read and worth the time.
Out of the many Cruise books I give this one the better rating than the others. It is fun, zippy, good narrator and I listened twice in two years. Most Cozy's I can only handle once; but this one is playful enough and the banter back and forth is witty enough to keep me listening intently.
I've listened to this book several times over the last few years and I love it! If you like Susan Elizabeth Phillips titles like "Natural Born Charmer", you'll like this! Great characters, witty dialog and good narration. Worth the credits or the cash!
I love this book so much that I would give anything to see the movie. As far as I know, there isn't one. It's a real shame!
SLow very slow start almost said that's enough, but it really turned around. I really enjoyed this listen. The story line had it's funny really could happen to you moments then it's its a novel momens. You know you wish you could do that in real life moments. Love Elvis. This was worth the beginning. The listen is worth it.
