After enduring her share of commitment-phobic boyfriends, Amy Brown trades in her high-powered PR job and designer shoes to embark on the journey of single motherhood. Now, with a rambunctious boy of six and chaotic shifts serving decadent muffins and high-octane brew at a local coffee bar, Amy could use a fix herself - preferably the sexy, smoky-eyed grande type.
No one is more shocked than Amy to discover that Sam Draper is made perfectly to order: hot, sweet and delicious. There is just one teeny problem. He’s the architect for the neighborhood’s brand-new Bean Machine, her employer’s fiercest rival. Still, Sam is sexy, fun, and really likes Amy’s son, Charlie. Amy can’t resist the steamy passion – or the feeling that Sam is hiding a secret or two. Could there be something rotten in the beans that make up the Machine’s secret blend? Or is it something more personal?
Harnessing her untapped yet formidable journalistic skills, Amy blows the lid off a story that will change her life, but will Sam stick around to share it? Perfect Blend is as addictive as a Frappuccino – but not nearly as fattening.
Would you try another book from Sue Margolis and/or Ruth Galliers?
Maybe. I didn't love the book, but, it had enough redeeming elements that I might give this author another try. The narrator did a fine job and I would listen to her again without hesitation.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
What didn’t you like about Ruth Galliers’s performance?
Her performance was fine. The editing was horrid!
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
My Audible library has over 1000 titles in it. Of those 1000+ books, not one comes even close to Perfect Blend's abominable editing. Throughout the book the narrator rereads sentences and words that were clearly to have been edited out. Chapter 4 had absolutely no editing done whatsoever. After the narrator fumbles a word or sentence you can hear someone in the background talking to her. The narrator them responds to the other person and then reads the line again with a different inflection, emphasis or pronunciation. I ended up skipping the last several minutes of chapter 4 because of it.
Any additional comments?
I suggest waiting for this book to be re-edited before anyone else purchases!!
