A brand-new novel in an original series from popular romance author Molly Harper! When Sadie and Josh compete for the same Kentucky Tourism Commission job, sparks fly - turns out Kentucky really is for lovers.
Sadie Hutchins loves her job at the Kentucky Tourism Commission. Not only could her co-workers double as the cast of Parks and Recreation, but she loves finding the unusual sites, hidden gems, and just-plain-odd tourist attractions of her home state. She’s a shoo-in for the director’s job when her boss retires at the end of the year…until hotshot Josh Vaughn shows up to challenge her for the position.
Josh is all sophisticated polish while Sadie’s country comfort, and the two have very different ideas of what makes a good campaign. So when their boss pits them against each other in a winner-takes-all contest, they’re both willing to fight dirty if it means getting what they want. But it turns out what Josh and Sadie want could be each other - and Josh’s kisses are the best Kentucky attraction Sadie’s found yet!

Good Books Don't Promote Violence
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.
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.
30 year old bibliophile. I love a good love story.
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
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)
I like the visit to vent haven. torturing co-workers with puppet phobias is always a good time
Anything by molly harper is a good thing
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.
The character's unfiltered dialogue made for some hilarious moments. Amanda Ronconi narration made listening fun.
As expected Amanda Ronconi's delivery made listening enjoyable.
If you need a book that will make you laugh and feel light hearted, this is the book. I highly recommend this.
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.
There were none
Someone with more personality in her voice and didn't sound 15
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.
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.
Just like all of their audio books, #1! I love listening to Amanda Ronconi and Molly Harper writes amazing stuff. She's funny and intelligent and I appreciate her efforts.
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.
