    Story
    "Distractingly Snarky!"
    What would have made My Bluegrass Baby better?

    The main character in this book tried make every sentence a sarcastic joke, very "snarky" and corny humor. There really wasn't much of a story and the characters were detestable.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Molly Harper again?

    I would definately preview before purchasing.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator did fine, she didn't have much to work with.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Annoyance and a lot of eye rolling.

    "Fun time"

    Fun laugh out loud silly. Not as epically great as "one last thing" but this storyline has friends I could really have and the snarky banter is great.

    "Meh"

    I love Molly Harper's novels... usually. This one - not so much. The characters, especially the women, had Harper's usual wit but were largely not well rounded out. The story - and at just over 5 hours, I'd call it a novella, rather than a novel - was as thin as gruel and a so full of simply unbelievable bits as to be distracting. She does a nice job introducing us to Kentucky but I was otherwise seriously underwhelmed and disappointed.

    I note she's written a second sort novella as a sequel. I won't be spending cash or a credit on it unless, perhaps, if it turns up on a daily deal. And if her novels get any shorter, she's going to have to be reassigned to the short story category.

    Amanda Roncini gets full marks for once again nailing a Harper book.

    "Good but very different than her other series"

    This was another good listen from Molly Harper, however if you were expecting quirky and laugh out loud funny like the Halfmoon Hallow or Werewolf series this isn't it. Don't get me wrong its good, but make sure you know what to expect.

    Story
    "Absolutely LOVED this book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of My Bluegrass Baby to be better than the print version?

    I love the audio version of the book. I love the narrator, as she has been used for other Molly Harper books.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Bluegrass Baby?

    Spoilers: I think the ending ;P I love that the author didn't make it easy on the two main characters.


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

    I love Amanda Ronconi read of the book. She was one of the reasons I felt more comfortable trying a new series by Molly Harper. I heard her on the other Molly Harper books (Jane Jameson/ Half Moon Hollow). I figured even if the story isn't great I know the narrator is.


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

    not really


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait to get the next books in the series.

    "Highly recommended! Funny, interesting, well read."

    I'm not even done listening and I simply have to write that I loved it. I bought this on some sort of sale to brook the time before my pre-order arrived and am hooked. I will definitely listen to more from both Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi. Don't want to stop listening, am sad I only have another half hour of book to listen to.

    Story
    "I love the team of Harper and Ronconi!"

    First Thought:

    Vampire, werewolf or just plain human, Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi never fails to entertain me.

    Why I listened:

    Hello, it’s Harper and Ronconi.

    The Story:

    Saddie’s boss is getting ready to retire and what should have been a sure thing for Saddie to get his position turns into a funny romance where she has to work with her competition for the Director position with the Kentucky Tourism Commission, Josh.

    And of course there is an attraction between Josh and Saddie at first site until they find out who the other person is and then it’s a race to see which one can out do the other in childish pranks. But once they realize that the pranks are getting in the way of their work they call a truce and let the best man/woman for the job win. All the while they are falling for each other.

    Final Thought:

    I liked the reference to Harper’s other contemporary romance, And One Last Thing. Which if you are a Harper fan you should really give that one a read as well. I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again. Paranormal or not the team of Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi is on the top of my auto-audio-buy list.

    Favorite Quote:

    “Besides if we went to jail I would sell you for cigarettes.”

    "Twenty something romance - not for adults over 35"

    I really enjoyed Molly Harper's book "And One More Thing", so I gave this one a shot. While the writing is very funny and the narrator is excellent, I can't imagine that the storyline would appeal to anyone over the age of 35. I think this author is extremely talented; in the future I hope she writes more books with older characters and themes.

    Story
    "Does snarky dialogue make up for a forumla plot?"

    I have really enjoyed some of Molly Harper's novels. The Naked Werewolf series was my favorite, "And One More Thing" was enjoyable. Then I read one of her vampire books and did not enjoy it. I decided to give this one a try even though I was on the fence about it.

    Here's the thing:
    Molly Harper can definitely come up with fun, snappy dialogue, and Amanda Ronconi is the perfect narrator for her books, but the story itself is a light-weight formula romance. I found myself wondering if the fun dialogue was enough to balance the absolutely predictable, transparent, formula plot-line. It would be nice if Molly Harper could use her gift for snarky, plus quirky characters AND dig deeper into a real story. THAT would be a great listen.

    Still, if you just want something really, really light weight to fill the time while you are on the treadmill (etc.) this may fit the bill.

    This was also a really short book. I recommend not wasting your credit on it. Buy it on sale or on a month where you've used your credits, since this is relatively inexpensive.
