Publisher's Summary

For Francesca Day, it's not the end of her world, but close to it. She's London-bred, wealthy, and sophisticated, but fate leaves her flat broke and stranded on a back road in Texas. Now she's got to deal with reality without her rich girl props. How can she do it?

In Dallas Beaudine, gritty and handsome, lies the answer. He stops his car to help Francesca, whose life needs a tune-up, as well as her car. Stopping could lead to the biggest mistake, or best time, ever.

©1989 Susan Elizabeth Phillips; (P)1996 Books on Tape

    Story
    "Texan Pro Golfer Meets English Lass"

    This isn't a brand new series, but it's new to me. Here's my philosophy on choosing a book: Sometimes you just want to relax, not to work at learning a new skill or theory. And that's where Audible shines, esp when story & narrator merge so seamlessly as they do in this series. Fancy Pants is about a female who wasn't prepared for the world, at least not in a way that would allow her to function well as an independent, self-sufficient person. That's something many females can relate to, unfortunately. This author deals with this serious subject in a humorous, confidence-inspiring (well, it is fiction but it does/ can apply to our lives too). Yep, it's about the need to be self-sufficient as a pre-requisite to real, mature (and exciting) LOVE. But there's enough fun and intelligence, so much so that you just might not dwell at all on the underlying message. Love it. But the second book in this series, Lady Be Good, had me laughing out loud. First things, first tho. Start at the beginning, here, if you want some relaxation and delight. Over n out.

    "Great Story!"

    I am glad the negative reviews didn't keep me from purchasing this book. It is a feel good book that makes you laugh throughout the story. All of the books I've purchased by Mrs. Phillips never disappoint me.

    "Fun escape"

    A great early SEP. A large portion of the book is spent on back-story, but it pays off in the end. This time I listened to this, then Lady Emma's book, then Teddy's book -- a nice progression, and fun to re-visit familiar characters. Anna Fields does a fabulous job with narration, as always. Still missing her in new releases!

    Story
    "Phillips + Fields = a definite win!"
    If you could sum up Fancy Pants in three words, what would they be?

    Clever
    Rich
    Fun


    What did you like best about this story?

    Depth of the characters


    What does Anna Fields bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She's INCREDIBLE! Seriously, I'm going to start listening to books she reads rather than authors I like. Such great tone and variety and she doesn't read too slow. I get annoyed by slow readers. She's fantastic.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES


    Any additional comments?

    Great story, great narration - a fantastic "listen"

    "One of the best love stories ever!"
    What other book might you compare Fancy Pants to and why?

    SEP's, Lady Be Good or Lisa Kleypas's Blue-Eyed Devil because of the strong male leads.


    Have you listened to any of Anna Fields’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Anna Fields was the perfect person for this story and all of Susan Elizabeth Phillips's books. She is sorely missed.


    Any additional comments?

    Any book with a line like, "damn he like the way she drove a car" is a book for me.

    "Love SEP."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is another great book by SUsan Elizabeth Phillips. I have listened to all of SEP's Chicago Stars books. Nobody's Baby But Mine has been my favorite so far, but this book is as good or better. As always I also enjoyed listening to Anna Fields.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book has it all. Love, laughter, and tears

    "Another Good One"

    Not one of SEP's books have disappointed me yet, especially with Anna Fields narrating--she makes a book even better (missed her reading in What I Did For Love). I am hoping with SEP's new book coming out in January, the narrator is just as good as Anna Fields. SEP can really write--I found myself laughing out loud while listening more than one time; good romance scenes as well.

    "Sooo Hot!!!!"

    I love these characters in this book. Worlds apart and so different but you can relate to all of them. This book is written so that you feel you really know these characters and know exactly what all of their surroundings look like without being too bogged down in too much detail. This book could have gone on another few hours and I would have gladly kept listening. Very funny!

    "I am a Susan Elizabeth Phillips Fan But...."

    This book is extremely long winded...going into every possible subplot and previous parentage. We learn the entire history not only of the main characters but of Francesca Days Mother and grandmother in great detail....It is not as funny or well written as her other books. It is great disappointment.,. Not worth reading.
