Ever dreamed of being a fly on the wall?

This book felt personalized for me: running stream of consciousness, secrets, humor, secrets, revelations, betrayals, connections, repercussions, secrets, set in my adopted home town...and did I mention secrets? ALL THE SECRETS!
I didn't turn it off until it was done.

Marigold is the quintessential middle child. Leaned on. Overlooked. Left to blossom on her own, her life is okay, but nothing spectacular on the surface. The man she loves is about to marry someone else. And then...she lands in the coma ward ("vegetable patch") of a hospital after a head-on collision that everybody else walked away from. I'm sure there was a good reason Ms. Bond chose "Brady" (Grady) hospital for her setting, but if you ever have brain trauma in Atlanta - go to Emory.

While in her coma, she sometimes sleeps, but often is aware. She hears everything going on around her and, for some reason, people begin to confide in her. She also learns secrets from the people who behave as if she's not even in the room. Juggling all this information is probably how she keeps from going batty while she's lying there, trapped in her own body. Not all the patients in her room handle the situation as well as she does.

There are a lot of shady characters in this book. Her family and an opportunistic ambulance chaser turn her into a media sensation. Her adorable, but gullible aunt brings around a con artist. Even her friend and roommate isn't always trustworthy.
And WHO is sending pictures of her to the Internet Tabloids?

The narrator, Maureen Jones, does the humor and intrigue great justice. Her southern accent is good, though I did occasionally detect some random Canadian. Her timing is spot on and I'll look for more of her work to enjoy.

Honestly, I wouldn't have minded a bit more righteous revenge, but maybe I'm a little meaner than Marigold.

Highly recommend.

Great story with closure!

I really did enjoy this, it told a story without leaving loose ends. However, I am one of those audible listeners who listens mainly with earbuds so if there are any other noises, they’re amplified. This particular reader had something that sounded like notification sounds going off throughout the entire book and it did become annoying especially when some of the sounds made me think my phone was notifying me of something. Also, there were two girl voices that literally sounded like Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck.. There were so many voices she had to read, this one would’ve been better with multiple readers. The story itself got 5 stars from me.

Worth the read/listen

It was a great listen, I enjoyed it and it was well narrated. I would not have read or listened to it in parts, the whole book is the best way to go.

Grr it’s 28 days until my next credit!

If there is a terminology for a listening book akin to “couldn’t put the book down” - this would fulfil it!
And a great ending - though you would expect that so it’s not a spoiler! Enjoy

Great Serial

It was great to have this daily serial in one complete audio book.

The characters are occasionally annoying, but a true reflection of families in reality.

Easy narration and you just want to keep listening to hear the next surprise ;)
