Publisher's Summary

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. But scary or not, this may be the only chance for Sunny Skies.

Sunny skies is a refreshing new hero!

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.<br/>I also loved how inspiring the book became for me, even though I myself don't suffer from anxieties like she did.<br/>

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.<br/>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.

Sunni's Journey

This was my first audiobook experience while on the treadmill. The story started out a little slow, first couple of chapters could be tightened up a bit. But after the first 'sign' appears, I was committed to hearing more about the ups and downs of Sunni's journey. Wanted to extend my workouts just the finish the next chapter!!

Fun and uplifting!

Any additional comments?

This is a fun, feel-good story about a young woman's effort to overcome debilitating shyness and anxiety. I enjoyed this story and the brilliant narration really brought it to life. Eryn Scott covers some difficult issues with a gentle touch. It has humor, romance, friendship, career ambition, and altruism. Always funny and never preachy, this story is fun and refreshing. One caveat: this is a first-person narration from a character who is shy and anxious, so the story does contain a lot of descriptions of nervous feelings. If you do not like first-person point of view or women's fiction, this probably isn't the book for you. If you like uplifting fiction with a lot of heart, you'll love this book. I'll be looking for more stories from both Eryn Scott and Bridget Haight. I received a free copy of this audio book so I may provide my honest review.

Great weekend listen!

Any additional comments?

This book has redeemed the awkward nerdy girl books for me. (Thank goodness!!!) I loved the character, Sunny. You not only got a sense of the how and why Sunny was so socially awkward, but the author was also able to make the situations so real that you cringed and then rooted for Sunny! Sunny was very likeable and so was Brian, the love interest.<br/><br/>You know from the title that the book will have a happy ending but it was a very pleasant journey getting there. The narrator was an excellent choice as well. A great weekend listen!!!

A Chance for Sunny Skies

"This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast."

A young woman who has been bullied and put down all her life tries to break into a new life as her own choice maker. Sunny has a long way to go in order to grow into a strong and confident woman. Some times one "chooses" their own family. There was some humor that made me laugh. Poor Benny, got a raw deal, but funny....yes it was!!

A fun book

At first I wasn't sure about this book because it felt like the main character was having a pity party. I gave it a chance and am glad that I did. It was fun and it empowered very shy people. I love in the end that she reached out to others like her.

Sunny Skies with a Chance for Happiness

"A Chance for Sunny Skies" was an enjoyable listen. I loved the characters, especially Sunny but Rainbow was also fun. She was sort of a guardian angel and helped Sunny overcome her social anxiety. I thought it was funny how the character Ken called her Cheeto Crotch. There were so many fun places in this audiobook. The whole thing was great. Definitely recommended. Eryn Scott is a good author and she'll be on my author to watch list.

Bridget Haight did a fab job narrating this audiobook. Her voice was exactly perfect for Sunny. She fit her quirky mannerisms with her voice inflections very well. This was an excellent match between author and reader.

Amazingly realistic!

Would you consider the audio edition of A Chance for Sunny Skies to be better than the print version?

"This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast."<br/><br/>I only had the opportunity to listen to the audio version, but I think it was better- it definitely enhanced the characters and made the story seem that much more genuine.<br/><br/>I can't express how much I enjoyed this, there were so many laughing moments, cringe worthy moments and finally the 'aww' moments. I haven't heard, or even read, many books that portray reality so well- at least in the way they're written. Once I began listening to this I didn't want to stop- it only really took me a while because of my too busy routine. I don't think I could ever get enough of this. The characters were portrayed very well, also: I felt that even though I don't suffer from social anxiety, I could still relate - I hate and shy away from the idea of being in video recordings almost as much as I hate the sound of my voice on record. This book taught the very much needed life lesson that one should take a step out of their comfort zone.The storyline was imaginative, the way Sunny received her wake up call was intriguing. Though it didn't take away the realism: as even she didn't understand the meaning, it was only until later on. During the particularly cringe worthy moments, my thoughts reflected almost the same thing Sunny had been thinking. You don't get many books with characters who are so damn relatable and comedic too. The narrator or performer enhanced the experience for sure. I definitely enjoyed it and will not hesitate in telling my friend's about it. Another feeling I experienced was this sense of intrigue and curiosity, both of which were piqued when Sunny began to experience the visions in her life- I kept wondering how would the next image fit. I'm glad there was no love triangle, instead the book focused on the development of one beautiful relationship.I also loved how despite this having been a romantic book, it wasn't cliché in its romantic element: there was no completely dashing guy, he actually had faults.Oh my, the number of books I have read which feature one 'perfect' man....I'm glad that this doesn't contribute to my list.I am thankful I had the opportunity to hear this, I can't recommend it enough

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This was definitely a book I would have loved to have listened to in one sitting, but there just ain't enough time.
