"Well written, funny, sexy, and altogether satisfying." (Publishers Weekly)
"[A] lively, well-written story. Phillips combines an unexpected premise with warm, appealing characters, and overlays it all with her zingy trademark humor and well-developed sense of the ridiculous." (Library Journal)
Day dreaming book lover!
Anna Fields makes the story. Her character voices are wonderful and she nails the personality of each character to totally enchant the listener. I liked the story too, don't get me wrong because it was entertaining and of course, romantic. But Anna Fields has to be given her due, without her, the story might not have been as entertaining.
I own both the audio and print and I really enjoyed the audio. There are some parts that Anna Fields just brings to life in a way that I can't imagine myself doing as I read along.
Any SEP book is going to be about the same: light, romantic, and full of fun. This may be my favorite by her, but Ain't She Sweet would be a close second.
Anna Fields' Lady Emma was spot on. She had a bearable accent, but played all of the reserve and eventual emotion perfectly.
Wonderful book, in typical SEP fashion! Thanks for the excellent read!
Good read! Started slow but once it got going, I loved it. Susan Elizabeth Phillips is becoming one of my favorite authors! This one was not as good as Glitter Baby but was right up there. You would not be wasting a credit on either of these books. They are the kind that you can't wait to get back to and are sorry when they are finished.
Yes, this book made me laugh and enjoy even the family fights.
I enjoyed this book as much as Bet Me by Jennifer Cruisie.
I love her stile. She took ownership over the characters to help us see each scene.
Yes, the description of each character was so good that I felt like if I knew them.
I will look for Susan Elizabeth Phillips's books and also for the books read by Anna Fields.
Funny, Romantic, and Lovable.
Field's performance was terrific. The voices were great.
Yes, I couldn't stop.
Spunky, funny and Delightful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kenny he was such a laid back wise guy!
Anna Field's is like no other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love Susan Elizabeth Phillips. She's one of my favorite and I especially love the witty and fun characters she produces! I only wish I had read this book instead of listening to it. The low, southern accented voice of the hero just made me wince so much I had a hard time even liking him. And being read by a female voice, I think I'd rather she 'played it straight' and just read in a normal voice. My imagination could have taken over. Our heroine's British accent was nice enough, but it seemed that all I could do when listening was try to block out the voice and try to 'hear' the story. Does that make sense? Anyway - next time I'll look for the STAR reviews for the audible version, which can be quite different from the paper version. And unless the reader is REALLY good at voices (like the wonderful ones in THE HELP), I would suggest they just read, not try to act.
I enjoyed Lady Emma as she tried to be "Bad" even though she was good to the bone. Very cute story and as always, a great love story from SEP.
I liked the story and characters, it was funny and I couldn't stop listening to it, however she kills the males voice, and made the english accent seem like the main woman character is an old lady (just being honest). I have heard worse though, so in the end I would get it again just be prepare.
This story is warm, charming, funny and wildly romantic. Vintage SEP at her best! I highly recommend it.
