Back in their college days, Gretchen Wise had been engaged to a top law student. Carol Furness, head cheerleader, had said yes to the school’s football hero. And Maddie Cobain was the girl who’d fallen for a professor. Now the three of them gather around a popular fountain on the college grounds. This fountain was where lovers met, where promises were made...and broken. So it’s fitting that Gretchen, Carol and Maddie sit here to share their stories of betrayal and, yes, revenge.

I quite enjoyed this story although I found it a challenge keeping all the stories together and remembering who was who by the end.

Dr. Kelly Hall had lost all hope of ever having a family - until single father Tanner Malone burst into her hospital, asking her how to raise his newborn daughter. What else could she do, so soon before Christmas, but lend her expertise to the gorgeous contractor? His charming smiles and come-hither glances draw her like a moth to a flame, but she's in no position to get involved with anyone. After a devastating heartbreak, Kelly has given up on happiness.

Nikki Burgess survived a terrible marriage and a worse divorce. She's just about given up hope of ever finding happiness. But when her ex-husband suddenly dies, she gets custody of her kids again - and a chance to start over. Dixie McPherson, on the other hand, has had way too much love. She has 11 tennis bracelets, dozens of trinkets, piles of sexy lingerie, and a tarnished reputation when all she ever wanted was true love, a partner, and a family. Carlisle Bartlett is loyal, kindhearted, and the funniest guy slinging drinks in the back of an airplane. But he has an ugly little secret. The only kind of love he's used to comes with bruises.

This is a delightful story with an aviation background. It is entertaining without any harrowing or frustrating aspects. A story the charm of which doesn’t lessen with second or third readings. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Where does 10 Reasons Not to Fall in Love rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best

Who was your favorite character and why?

Molly and Dexter were sound and enjoyable characters, but I really liked Henry.

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

I tend to look for books by Suzy Aitchison, because I have seldom found one she reads that I haven't enjoyed. Also, she has a gift for character voices, in this case she does an amazing job of the baby.

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

Just enjoyed it a lot. I don't like extreme villains or goody goodies and these were just nice non stressful characters with the "happily ever after' seldom in doubt.

Any additional comments?

I have since found another Linda Green book and am enjoying it too.
