    "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.

    "oddly reminds me of parks and rec"
    What did you love best about My Bluegrass Baby?

    Like most of molly harpers work its funny. though her jane serries has me laughing out loud and scaring the general public. this one just made me grin. still it was good


    If you’ve listened to books by Molly Harper before, how does this one compare?

    very good, shes gone in a different direction here and i enjoyed it her other books seem to have various kooky relitives involved and this one did not. the sarcastic dry wit was toned down a bit as well but still a great listen. This one like all of her books make me feel as if im in kentucky ( a compliment)


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I like the visit to vent haven. torturing co-workers with puppet phobias is always a good time


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    Anything by molly harper is a good thing

    "Funny, but..."

    This new series by Molly Harper is funny and lighthearted, but not quite as good as her two paranormal series (Nice Girls/Half Moon Hallow and the Naked Warewolf/Grundy Alaska). Her humerous take on the vampire/warewolf genre is totally credit worthy. This new (non-paranormal) series is not quite up to what I'd come to expect. The narrator really helps make this a better book than it would have been on print. Her Kentucky twang is spot on.

    "Hilarious - Molly Harper’s funniest book so far"
    Would you consider the audio edition of My Bluegrass Baby to be better than the print version?

    The character's unfiltered dialogue made for some hilarious moments. Amanda Ronconi narration made listening fun.


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

    As expected Amanda Ronconi's delivery made listening enjoyable.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    If you need a book that will make you laugh and feel light hearted, this is the book. I highly recommend this.

    "Not for me"
    What disappointed you about My Bluegrass Baby?

    I felt absolutely no connection to the characters in this book to the point that I did not finish it. I have heard good things about this author but had never read her before. I am not sure if I didn't like it because of the narrator of the content of the book.


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

    There were none


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Amanda Ronconi?

    Someone with more personality in her voice and didn't sound 15


    Any additional comments?

    I am sorry that I just couldn't finish and I'm sure fans of Molly Harper love her books. I just didn't get it.

    "Promoting a small town never got less serious"

    Great story of competition and love among co-workers. Does she get her dream job, or lose it to the new guy? You won't know until the very last chapter! Great fun.

    A middle-aged romantic who grew up reading Heinlen, Louis L'Amour and Richard Hooker. Expect and honest opinion, even if it's not PC.

    Hilarious, sexy and easy to relate to. I love Molly Harper's Southern Style Storytelling. Amanda Ronconi is a fabulous Narrator.

    "Good Story and narration - but some poor editing"
    Any additional comments?

    Another typical hit between Harper and Ronconi... I but some rather epic editing fails with audio overlapping and repeating. It wont prevent me downloading future collaborations, but is distracting.
    I know there are many listeners pushing to get the next audiobook, but perhaps another layer of quality control is in order.
