Publisher's Summary

Dowdy art exhibit coordinator Ava Young is happy with her man suits and sensible clogs. She likes the way they clip-clop on the museum's tile floor. But they don't win her any lovelorn looks from her office crush. In fact the handsome new guy calls her "sir" when they first meet. Oh well. She's always known the only way a guy would take a second look at her was if she was the only person in the room. And on fire.

After her workplace crush devastates her by, frankly, calling her something super-duper mean, Ava is ready to make some drastic changes inside and out, even if it means giving up chocolate or taking hilariously out-of-date but strangely wise-sounding advice on femininity from a 1959 book on How to Snare a Modern Man.

Either way, she'd better hurry because when a priceless art exhibit gets a theft threat on Ava's watch, a billionaire bachelor and a handsome FBI agent will be taking a good, long look at the art.

And at Ava.

    "Blah!"

    OK story ruined by periodically turning a reasonably intelligent heroine into a moron to further the plot.

    Story
    "Pleasant Suprise"
    Where does The Lost Art: A Romantic Comedy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is definitely at the top for it's genre. I am more of a sci-fi/fantasy fan but decided to branch out a little. It didn't take long to get pulled into the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Probably the characters. They aren't all exactly what they seem and it keeps the story interesting.


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

    She did an awesome job with the narration. Having a good reader always brings the story to life in a way that i just don't get reading it myself.

    Story
    "Decent rom com"

    This makes no bones about its characters or a set of fairly outrageous premises. If you liked Day and Hudson a generation ago, you'll like it.
    The narrator needs to SLOW DOWN, though. In places it sounds like an adolescent girl racing through a script.

    "Eyeroll"

    Not a romcom, I don't think I laughed once. Really cheesy and inconsistent plot details. Not a book for the avid 'romance' category readers. Only a few lukewarm make out sessions, some of the YA books I have read have been steamier!
