I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
I like the fresh plot. Though the romance formula is in tact, Bybee offers and interesting plot in this second of a series. Also, she does a good job laying the groundwork for follow-ons. This novel is self contained, as was Book 1. This series creates a universe and a set of woman within the universe. After listening to two, it is clear where she is going but I think the plot lines will have enough variety to keep one interested.
As a critique I would liked to have amped up the conflict. I also would have liked to see a little more depth from Eliza -- all in all, a nice listen. Pull up a chair near the fire, surf the web on you iPad and listen away. Eby does a good job narrating. I give it a thumbs up.
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
Married by Monday: Weekday Brides, Book 2 is a very entertaining romance with enjoyable characters, most of whom we met in Book 1. My only disappointment is that audible does not have book 3 in their store.
Book 1 and 2 are the only Catherine Bybee books that I have ever had the pleasure of listening. Her characters are endearing, and the story is lighthearted, while also engaging. If you are in the mood for a fun read, this novel will provide.
Definitely credit worthy!
The Character spin off from the previous book definitely worked here as these characters get to have their own lives with minimal appearances from the original characters from book 1. I loved the strength of Eliza and her back story was phenomenal.
Yes it did although the narrators insistence on animating the character's voices left something to be desired.
When Carter realizes how strong Eliza is.
I'm an avid reader of Romance and a true romantic at heart. I also read and review in other sub-genres as well. Happy reading!
I thoroughly enjoyed Married by Monday. The characters are great and loved the plot. I'm so glad I found this series! I suggest you give it a try. Absolutely love Tanya Eby's narration.
very cute story. I enjoy having a romance without all of the kinky crazy sex scenes. these stories are not exactly realistic, but I enjoy them a lot.
Tell us about yourself!
It really didn't capture my attention. It was alright. I was glad when it was over. I will check out the third in the series cuz I liked the first book.
I struggled to finish this book because I am one those readers that finishes a book no matter how silly it is. It was too story-bookish. It was anticipatable and boring. Maybe it's the way the story was written but the narrator's voice gives off a monotonous 'whatever' kind of tone...like oh... Its an everyday thing to get a bullet through your arm... I didn't feel the love between Carter and Lisa. Basically emotions were not captured
The excitement of each characters, it bought out the twist and turns more for me.
I enjoyed Eliza but Tanya does such an outstanding job on all of them. What is there not to love.
This series has been a wonderful refreshing read the author gives you a new twist along with some thrills and suspense in way you do not expect it. It is a pretty clean read but there is so much passion you can almost feel it. I have so enjoyed this series and can't wait to see what they author has for me next.
The author writes about some very serious issues but in a way you can relate and have so much compassion for each character you feel their pain. Each women who gets married does so for a reason for Eliza it was to keep her safe and bring you out to be able to live a normal life. Being on the run to out run someone who wants you dead for no reason other than your father turned them in must be so painful. You lose so much along with yourself. I really enjoy watching her take her life back, being the strong women and helping others who are going through what she had was touching.
Carter was just adorable he gave so much of his self even when it would have been better if he had just walked away. He is a stand up guy who cares so much. He has so much class and so much to give a women. There isn't a women who will read this that won't fall in love with him.
I thought I would die laughing when that cowboy came up and over heard what the ladies were talking about. There is so much humor but into Catherine Bybee books you find yourself turning pages and not wanting to put it down.
Tanya Eby as a narrator brings so much to each of these books with her smooth calming voice she pulls you in. Her many different voice are outstanding I love them all and it is hard to pick just one as your favorite. I know when I see these two names together it is going to be an outstanding listen. I am so hooked on these two ladies who keep me smiling and laughing as they bring me suspense and passion.
Catherine bring an usual fresh twist to how to marry a rich man for all the wrong reason which turn out to be all the right ones. Women for years have been setting up men but her ladies do it all above board. I so loved the aunt and how they fooled the grand kids. If you haven't read any of Catherine's books you really should give one a try you won't be disappointed. I for one can't wait for the next one.
