    "A Jewel Thief Italian Count, and Lovely Lady Lawer"
    What made the experience of listening to Trouble in High Heels the most enjoyable?

    I liked the relationship development, they were a great team. I did not especially care of the Narrators version of an aristocratic italian count accent and speech patterns, but it was not so bad that it keep me from enjoying the story.

    "Good story the narration killed it for me"

    Who doesn't love a story of love, betrayal and steamy elevator scenes? The narration was so dull. Every male character had a raspy old voice and it was hard to tell them apart. This book takes place in Chicago and NO CHICAGO ACCENTS! The mob characters sound like New Yorkers. If you can get past all that, the story keeps you involved and entertained.

    "not what i was expecting"
    What disappointed you about Trouble in High Heels?

    I bought this book a while ago along with a couple others and im now getting around to listening to them and this one i was just not completely thrilled with. I was a bit slow and tedious compared to some of her others. Amanda Ronconi is always a good narrator just not impressed with the story line.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Amanda Ronconi’s performances?

    Yes, I really like Amanda Ronconi as a narrator.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Trouble in High Heels?

    I wouldn't cut a scene the whole book was just slow moving for me and the story line wasnt that impressive compared to some of her other books.


    Any additional comments?

    I will still continue listening to Christina Dodd's books majority of them are very well written and very well narrated by Amanda.

    "Not a memorable read..."

    I suppose this book was pleasant and enjoyable in the moment, but i currently find myself shocked that i just read it earlier this month and already cannot remember much of it. So it was not very memorable! I suppose that this makes me less qualified to write an accurate review with any further details. It was short and easy to read and i may read it again in the future -especially since i cannot remember it already!

    Story
    "Full of Flights of Fancy"
    What did you love best about Trouble in High Heels?

    Its a love story about a coming of age young lady who goes to her fiance in Chicago after graduating from Law School, only to discover that the man she was engaged to had gotten another woman pregnant and is in Vegas.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Trouble in High Heels?

    When Brandy tries to keep her lover safe, despite knowing that he had lied to her.


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

    Amanda Ronconi brings a lilting joy and warmth to her characters.


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

    No extreme reaction except that at times it seemed to take forever before it came to a different chapter.

    "Really fun book that kept me guessing!"
    What did you love best about Trouble in High Heels?

    Really enjoyed this book. This was a new author to me that I tried during a sale, and I'm glad I did! The story was solid with a few LOL's, but the mystery kept me guessing almost until the very end. If you like Janet Evanovich type chic lit, you will enjoy this book!


    What other book might you compare Trouble in High Heels to and why?

    Janet Evanovich books...fun mystery with a little romance blended in

    Story
    "Ridiculous, funny, more pornographic than sexy"
    What disappointed you about Trouble in High Heels?

    What I didn't like was some of the voices, they were not convincing and really down right annoying (leading man), nor did I like the overly described sex scenes (there's a difference between sexy and pornographic...relative I'm sure). Finally, the narrator did well translating some characters such as the lead female and her mom, dad, uncle for instance, on the other hand she sounded under aged and to matter of fact in much of the rest of the narration to me.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Unsure


    How could the performance have been better?

    More than one narrator...


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Trouble in High Heels?

    The sex scenes were to much for me....I would cut them, or at minimum tone them down.


    Any additional comments?

    I found this story totally ridiculous, funny and somewhat entertaining.

    "Cute"
    If you could sum up Trouble in High Heels in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, fast moving, charming


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the main characters.


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

    No. She did a fine job, except the Count's accent.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read several of Christina Dodds historical romances, so being a little familiar with her books decided to take a chance on this one. As with the Regency books, this one has the Italian Count instead of a Duke, Earl etc. It is a modern fun, light hearted take on the same type of book. Sometimes this type fits the bill after serious books. I enjoyed it.

    "Great Story - narrator needed help w/hero's accent"

    I enjoyed the story. The characters were well developed and the story line flowed. I loved the relationships with the relatives and the ending was definitely cute. None of the characters played the idiot or came across as stupid. I had a feeling about what was coming in the story line but it was well done. I didn't feel like I might as well give up because I knew what was going to happen. Truly the only problem I have with the book at all is the accent that the narrator uses for her male heroes in the books. Sadly, she has had this problem with another series. Usually her secondary characters have better fitting voices then the lead male voice. I am usually able to move beyond it enough to enjoy the book but I so would perfer a more masculine voice that fit the character. Please don't get me wrong, I love her voices for her female leads and she is great at the humor part of her roles. (She is great in Nice Girls: Jane Jamison series except for Gabriel's voice. She carries the humor part of the characters and first person narration wonderfully, but Gabriel's accent makes him come across as something less then an alpha type male.) When she has a male voice that doesn't require a foreign accent, she does a great job.
