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

    "So slow I gave up and quit listening"

    I really loved Susan Elizabeth Phillips' Chicago Stars series, so I wanted to start the Wynette, Texas series from the beginning. This book was so slow getting to the story that I gave up and stopped listening. Audible graciously refunded my money.

    "Extremely annoying characters"

    This was a complete waste of a credit. If I had to hear the name "Dally" one more time I might have trashed my ipod. Don't waste your time.

    "Not her best"

    Sooooo long. A bit boring. I only finished because I didn't want to waste my credit. I didn't care about the characters at all.

    "Took to long to like heroine"

    But otherwise was a pleasant read. I read 'heroes are my weakness' first which I liked better, however I'm going to read another of her books because I like a grounded romance.

    "I actually looked forward to my commute!"
    What made the experience of listening to Fancy Pants the most enjoyable?

    Even though Francesca is not your typical romantic heroine, I really grew to care about her as the story progressed. Great character development. I looked forward to my commute so that I could listen to what would happen next in the story.

    "Absolutely horrible!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Don't think anyone would really enjoy this book.


    What could Susan Elizabeth Phillips have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make the main character more likeable.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Anna Fields’s performances?

    Not really. Accents were bad and hard to listen to.

    "Don't do it!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you are obsessed w/ the history of the characters.


    What was most disappointing about Susan Elizabeth Phillips’s story?

    It is difficult to believe that the author of


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

    Anna Field's narration is the perfect example of how an awesome narrator can only marginally help an awful book. Ocassionally a great narrator can really save a so-so book. But even Ms. Field couldn't pull this loser out of the mire.


    What character would you cut from Fancy Pants?

    Characters weren't the problem. It was the depressing aspect of the story that did it - no one is that dumb. Maybe SEP was having real life problems and delt them by venting in the book. Good therapy just not a good read.


    Any additional comments?

    I drive two hours every day to work so I listen to a lot of books. Every other SEP book I've read thus far has been an upbeat, entertaining experience -

    "Horrible"

    I have a very open mind when it comes to books and for the most part will at least be able to get through an entire book even if it is bad. This book however, is the worst book that I have ever attempted to partake in. It is so slow that I found myself begging for something to happen but was only able to get through 4 hours before I had to give up. Do not waste any credits or money on this book!

    "Not her best...I almost gave up listening"

    I love SEP but this book was so hard to get through. Ths first 1-2 hours were the hardest but it picked up near the end. I believe the reason it took so long to get the actual story started its there were several subplots and other relationships to develop. Overall I wouldn't listen to it again.
