Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of A Good Heart Is Hard to Find by Trisha Ashley, read by Eva Haddon.

'It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man of over 40 is in possession of a major defect....'

Cassandra Leigh has woken as if from a bad dream: 44, childless and 20-plus years into an affair with a married man. Max assures her they just need a little more patience and for his wife to die (!), but Cass is desperate for a baby and running out of time. Maybe Max is not the only man for her?

There's her friend Jason - though he's perhaps a little too rugged - and there's something strange about the way his wife disappeared.... Or there's Dante, the mysterious stranger she meets on a dark night in his haunted manor house....

Cass must throw caution to the wind and claim the life she's always wanted. Suddenly it's a choice between Mr Right, Mr Wrong or Mr Right Now.

Fantastically funny and whimsical, this heartwarming novel will charm fans of Milly Johnson and Jill Mansell.

Interesting

This was definitley different from Trisha's previous books and...very much the same. The main charcatets is my least favorite of Trisha's lead characters in all of her books. While this is "darker" than most of Trisha's books, it still has that quirky plot that is quite charming. HOWEVER, the narrerator is BEYOND HORRIBLE! Her voice does not march the plot or characters as she sounds like Judi Dench (the main character is in her 49's and Judi is not). Her 70-year-old voice does not endear me to this character. I can hear her licking her lips, and sounds like she drops the book at one point. Unsure if it is edited or not.

good, not fantastic, but enjoyable.

enjoyable listen, but not my favorite trisha ashley book. I like the darker elements she usually uses, but felt there was something missing with this one. but then it probably would've taken an added 30 pages...

narrator ruins the story

it was really hard to get into the story. the narrator lost the accents as she was reading. she made the character sound like she was 70. unpleasant to listen to.

Had to return

Very disappointed in this offering from Trisha Ashley. The story hadn't got going by over a quarter of the way in and the narrator sounded completely the wrong age for the characters. I eventually gave up and returned the book for a refund.

Disappointed

Not quite the same quality listen as other books by TA. The narration did not help as the voices were all over the shop. Nearly returned the book but never say die and the story line improved slightly towards the end when every other dialogue from the central character wasn't punctuated with references to childless state.

Not as good as the other Trisha Ashley books.

The story and the characters are not entertaining as other books by Trisha Ashley that I have read. I thought the characters were mostly unactractive and I particularly did not like Cassie's Father. He was totally pointless. The story was disappointing too. There was not the level of humour and it was disappointing. I have loved the other books by Trisha Ashley they have made me laugh out loud but not this time.

Another original offering from Trisha Ashley

Quite spooky in some ways, Cass' journey of multidimensional discovery is enjoyable, yet fabulously quirky from start to finish.

I hadn't come across Eva Haddon as a narrator before, though she really brought these characters to life, instilling much comedy into the story.
