Sadie Dawson's mother goes into labor hours before her great-grandfather's 100th birthday party and Mom refuses to cancel the festivities! Now it's up to domestically-challenged Sadie to host the dinner party - only she hasn't a clue how to cook a turkey.
This could be the mother of all culinary disasters, but with the help of her two best friends, Sadie is determined to pull off the best dinner party in a hundred years. And maybe land Mr. Right, too.
Mary Jane Wells' effortless narration adds just the right dash of spice to this breezy chick lit romantic comedy. You might just have seen her in the films Elena Undone and Meth Head, or as Josie Marks in the HBO series The Newsroom, or caught her work on the Downton Abbey audiobooks.

This was a fast,fun read.It's grandpes 100th birthday,Mom goes into labor and 1 20 something is left to figure it all out for the first time ever! Mary Jane Wells did a great job narrating this story!I was gifted a copy for a fair review.
Funny, Heart-warming and Plausible
The old people of course. The fact that they feel entitled to saying anything they wish to and often do so is hilarious.
The bitter sister.
Oh I laughed...oh how I laughed because I have been there.
I would read any other books this person wrote.
This book was great and very entertaining.
The whole book was memorable, uncooked turkey, brothers spiking the punch and sexy fireman. The narrator was very easy to listen to and I loved her accent. I am looking forward to listening to more books by this author and narrator.
Great book, I am looking forward to the next one.
My name is Anna and I am from Greece. I am mostly a super crazy Editor, a completely crazy mum of two and of course I LOVE AUDIOBOOKS!!!
top 50 (and only because it's a short story and I really wanted to last more)
The Turkey disaster, the drunk twins, the birth of the boy (luckily not named Piper after all) and the disbelief of the fireman's proposal for dinner.
No, it was the first one and I liked her very very much!
It made me laugh in more than one occasions, I think I was laughing all the time...

I hope this review was useful to you and helped your decision to read or not read this book. I love reading and sharing my opinions with other readers.
Thanks a lot Rachel Elizabeth Cole & Mary Jane Wells for this book.
This was a cute little novelette that I hope will one day be expanded into a novel. Sadie and her family make very interesting characters and I would like to see that expanded upon, along with the sudden romance that was introduced.
Mary Jane Wells gives a great narration. Her pacing was great and her accent was surprisingly appropriate. Excellent inflection.
Cute story that I hope gets expanded.
