Critic Reviews

"McInerney mixes just the right measure of humor and bittersweet reality in this fun-filled international romance. Audie Award-winning narrator Melissa Eccleston handles the environs perfectly. Women who enjoy laughter along with a modern love story are in for a treat." ( AudioFile Magazine)
"A humorous, romantic, and sexy novel...an intriguing and highly entertaining read." (Sunday World Ireland)

Lacks substance

What a disappointment! This story lacks substance, is predictable, and was really annoying! The main character continually jumps to stupid conclusions, the plot is simple, the dialogue is trite.

Disappointing because I've liked other books by this author.

DRAMA??

The narrator of this book is FANTASTIC! If it were not for her I would have shut it off long ago. The book is just too much drama for one womans lifetime. It just gets tired and too fantastic just one drama after another. Nothing seemed to flow. It just pops up with no prior history or warning....

Thoroughly enjoyable!

Well written and very well narrated, this book does not fail to entertain. I wish there were a lot more books like this one.

calling me back

Great narration! The accents remind me of my recent trips to both countries. I could easily follow along the main character's sightseeing of Dublin. Makes me want to go back to Ireland and Australia.

Funny

I really enjoyed this great comedy of errors. The main character was funny in an unassuming way and really kept you enthralled. Enjoyed this book thoroughly!

Very entertaining

“A Taste for It” was a most enjoyable read. I enjoyed it very much; it was light and entertaining. It was a good blend of the Clare Valley wine country in South Australia and County Clare in Ireland with wonderful characters and good humour. I am keen to read more Monica McInerney novels.

Tasty

Wish I could have been on this wine tour! What a colorful book of descriptive travel and pleasant characters. Great reader. I would listen to a sequel!

Disappointing

I really struggled to keep going and couldn't finish. So disappointing when I have truly enjoyed the earthy realism of Monica McInerny's other works. The story line was thin. The main character was a superficial bore.
Melissa Eccleston's Irish and American accents were awful. Give me Ulli Birve any day.
Sorry, this one seemed like a rush job to me.
