Not the best choice of narrators

I have read these books and listened to the original recordings which I loved. Cassandra Campbell was great. Maureen Jones doesn't portray the characters as having Southern accents and her pronunciation of the word garage is terrible. I never realized how many times the word occurred until I heard her recording. It's like fingernails on a chalkboard ! I don't know where she's from, but they should have chosen someone from the south to narrate these new recordings

Hate the change of reader

I like the series but I really hate the change of reader. If the main character is southern girl from Atlanta she would pronounce about as A boat or garage as garreage. It was aggregating and detracted from the flow of the book.

Fun Series!

What made the experience of listening to 2 Bodies for the Price of 1 the most enjoyable?

I really enjoy this series. Fun and light chick lit with characters you really care about. I was glad to see that Audible was able to provide the remainder of the series after first listening to #1 a year or so ago andand by now I'm too spoiled to actually read to myself if it's unrelated to work. Audible all the way!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Wesley, because he's very interesting and compelling.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

No. The narration has been a disappointment to me in the series. As someone born in Texas and raised in Virginia, I find the Canadian pronunciation of words distracting to a story set in Georgia. I think I would enjoy this narrator for other stories, but not one set in southern states. Each time I heard words like garage and been, it took me out of the story for a spell.

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

I'm currently on the 5th in the series, so my reaction was I didn't want to stop listening ☺

Narration throws it all off

This is the second book of this series I’ve listened too. They are average but if they are on sale worth the time. What throws me off is the narrator. This book is supposed to be based on an ex-rich girl from Atlanta instead the narrator speaks like a Canadian. If I had to hear bean instead of been and gair-auge instead of garage one more time I would have returned it. Very poor choice in narrators. I doubt I will listen to any more of the series based on this.

Great story

Loved the story. Nice, easy read. Didn't care for the narrator. Liked the narrator on the first book better.

Keeps getting better

Just when Carlotta thought her life couldn’t get worse, someone steals her identity and then jumps off a bridge. Good story!

Another good book

Love the book. The only thing that I would have to say that would be a negative would be the pronunciation of the word garage drove me batty.
