An interesting journey. The story was somewhat predictable but a good, mindless listen for the daily commute in traffic. I found myself looking forward to my daily installment. I especially enjoyed the narrator. Her accents made the story delicious. Actually, there are a lot of food references so this is not for those who are on a diet. This made me want to find other work by this author.
I downloaded this because the narrator was Jilly Bond, and I've really enjoyed her performances in the past. In addition to the narration being fantastic, the story turned out to be pretty good too! I wasn't really paying enough attention at the beginning and got a little confused that there were two points of view, but as soon as I got that sorted in my head I settled into really enjoying the story.
Due to life circumstances,Two women find they have to take control of their own path in life. As a result, they find out they are much happier than their life before when they were just trying to "fit in" to society and follow their men's lead.
I enjoyed all the parts really, it was a great journey.
This was my first read by the author.
Goodbye Nasty Women's Club
Good solid contemporary relationship type novel
I'd never read/listened to an Annie Sanders story before and glad I did - I highly recommend this audo-book to anyone into good Chick-Lit.
Easy to follow straight from the beginning and it stayed that way. Wonderful relationship between Maddie & Lizzy and I found myself eagerly wondering what was going to happen next with their friendship, their business and family life. They go through a multitude of ups and downs (funny and sad) but they stay firm.
Jilly Bond as always is a great narrator and just makes the story a great listen to.
No, but I look forward to the sequel
Lovely voice, really transports you to the English countryside
I really enjoyed this book. I also listen to mysteries, so I love a good chick lit to lighten the mood.
Izzie and Maddy are each married with children and end up moving from London to a small town. Their lives have changed. They meet in this small town and a tragic event brings them together, eventually becoming best friends. While there are some parts of the story line that are expected, there are also some things that happen which I did not anticipate.
They become involved in something together and this causes both of them to change in good ways. Some of their loved ones are happy about these changes, others are not.
The narrator is good and I recommend this book.
