Sunny Skies is drowning. The problem, besides the whole not being able to breathe part, is that when her life flashes before her eyes, she doesn't recognize any of it. Convinced the universe phoned in a default slideshow, Sunny gives in to the current. After a fisherman snags the 26-year-old in his net, she decides it's time to cast off her hermitlike ways. When she meets slightly-less-awkward-than-her Brian, an archery-loving neat freak, she discovers that living her new life might be scarier than drowning.

What did you love best about A Chance for Sunny Skies?

There isn't much I can say I didn't love about this story. Sunny skies is an amazing character with so much spunk and I loved the way with each chapter you just wanted her to achieve more and more.
I also loved how inspiring the book became for me, even though I myself don't suffer from anxieties like she did.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was 100% Sunny Skies. She's a very memorable character with her actions she makes. She grows up, matures and also learns from everything. She self criticizes and really means to change internally.

Which character – as performed by Bridget Haight – was your favorite?

Bridget did an amazing job narrating. I have to again say though, her performance of how Sunny Skies would react had me pulled in immediately. The gasps, the groans, the excitement, the tears, she made all moments memorable and plausible.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The title of the book is a good enough tag line already. I would hate this to turn into a movie and lose the narration as it was in the book.

Any additional comments?

This book has become one of my favorite, one I'm sure I'll listen to again and again.
Sunny Skies was wonderful and by the end of the book, I felt so proud of her, like I'd been there right next to her to help.

Most women have them: those two very distinct, very different voices in their mind. One can usually be chalked up to common sense; the other to mischief, mayhem, or just plain morbid curiosity. Both are always there, though, ready with their two cents' worth. Jemma Keith is no exception to the rule. She doesn't have a problem agreeing to photograph her cheating ex-boyfriend's wedding. The dilemma, however, is what to do once she gets there.

If you could sum up My Ex-Boyfriend's Wedding in three words, what would they be?

JumpyThrillingRomantic

Would you recommend My Ex-Boyfriend's Wedding to your friends? Why or why not?

I think I would recommend this, but not through an audiobook. The woman who read this was just too emotional for me throughout the entire book. I even lost concentration while listening because of her voice at times.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

I think the narrator was too emotional and too dramatic at times. The points where there was drama, she was too whiny. She made Gemma sound like a 21 year old who was too immature for the story line. .

Who was the most memorable character of My Ex-Boyfriend's Wedding and why?

I think the most memorable character was Gemma or tony. Tony's character reminded me over a man resembling the Fifty Shades of Grey series.

Any additional comments?

The story line jumped from one scene to another. When I thought the book was over, the actual climactic moment didn't even start. The story went from a woman photographing her ex boyfriends wedding to much more, this is what grabbed my attention, though I had trouble parting from the narrator's voice. Over all, I liked the book. I think with a different narrator, this book would be very intriguing to listen to again. Or better yes, to read alone. There is nothing better than being able to imagine the characters myself.
