Publisher's Summary

From the USA Today best-selling series.

There are three things you need to know about Kat Tanner (aka Kathleen Tyson...and yes, she is that Kathleen Tyson). One: She’s determined to make good decisions. Two: She must get married ASAP. And three: She knows how to knit.

Being a billionaire heiress isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. In fact, it sucks. Determined to live a quiet life, Kat Tanner changed her identity years ago and eschewed her family’s legacy. But now, Kat’s silver spoon past has finally caught up with her, and so have her youthful mistakes. To avoid imminent disaster, she must marry immediately; it is essential that the person she chooses have no romantic feelings for her whatsoever and be completely trustworthy.

Fortunately, she knows exactly who to ask. Dan O’Malley checks all the boxes: single, romantically indifferent to her, completely trustworthy. Sure, she might have a wee little crush on Dan the Security Man, but with clear rules, expectations, and a legally binding contract, Kat is certain she can make it through this debacle with her sanity - and heart - all in one piece.

Except, what happens when Dan O’Malley isn’t as indifferent - or as trustworthy - as she thought?

So sad to be this happy......

I came late the Knitting in The City Books, I read all of them back to back and had to wait only a couple of weeks for Marriage of Inconvenience. So I feel I may have cheated a bit because I had no long wait between stories, but what a wonderful ending for this group (my so happy from the title). I found the knitting stories through the Winston Brothers Series and I love both equally or so I believed. I thought Cletus was my perfect male character until I read Dan the Security Man's story. He and Kat's story was so wonderfully romantic and hilarious, mainly due to Dan. Dan was such a rich and well developed character; maybe due to Mrs. Reid being able to ruminate on him throughout the other Knitting in the City stories. I also think Mrs. Reid 's change of writing style to tell Dan and Kat's story was perfect. The change added a great deal to my enjoyment of the book and made the smile on my face so much bigger. The story was well balanced with laugh out loud funny moments as well as great examples of "cry porn". The funny parts were much more numerous. This book included some suspense and intrigue also. And per usual for a Penny Reid novel, I came away with a little bit more knowledge on a couple of topics. In this book I learned a little something about the pharmaceutical industry and came away with some points to ponder regarding mental illness. I thank Penny for the thoughts on mental illness. Now my complaint (the sad): is this the end of the series?? All of the original group have paired off and have their HEA. We have seen a little peak of each couple's HEA as they were a part of the next novel in the series but was it enough? If I could ask Mrs. Reid for a favor it would be to write a story (even if it is just a short story or novella) that is set 15 or 20 years in the future that gives a nice glimpse of the life each couple has lived and how their marriage/relationship developed over the years. Some stories about their children, their home/household, and their careers. Who had children, how many and whose children have become close. Which husbands became close friends as the years passed. And most important how did the relationship of the ladies change and grow as they aged and distance separated them, did it end the Tuesday night tradition? Or did it make them find other ways to support and appreciate each other? How does the Tuesday night knitting group look years later and is the love and appreciation of the friendship still the same? I know Mrs. Reid has so many irons in the fire but I would love a HEA that wraps up the entire series. I also need to say that due to this series I have become a knitter, still early stages but I’m hooked. There are no groups or shops in my area so I am learning via videos and books but I am sticking with it, so thank you for the hobby. And thank you for the company, I lost my husband recently to pancreatic cancer and the ladies in the knitting group became friends when I needed them. So I appreciated their company more than I can say, thank you so much. Thank you for such well developed and engaging characters, I love them all.

I loved the story, disliked the heroines narrator

Any additional comments?

This is the last book in the Knitting in the City series, so considering I've come this far you'd be right in assuming I'm a huge fan of the series. I already have this book on my Kindle, but wanted to be able to listen to it as well. I devoured the book on my kindle in one sitting, and felt it was the absolute perfect ending. I truly loved Kat and Dan (Dan cusses a lot, but this isn't something that bothers me at all).

Unfortunately, I feel the female narrator was completely wrong for Kat. Kat's personality is more quiet, not weak in any way, just quiet. The narrator reads extremely fast and makes Kat sound very aggressive. (Sidenote, this is the same narrator used for Beard in Mind, and I felt she 'fit' the personality of the heroine). I literally cringed at how she read Kat. It isn't the narrator's voice, just her interpretation.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the narrator for Dan is absolutely perfect. His accent, tone, and reading speed fits Dan to a t!

Considering the perfection of Dan's narrator, I'm just so sad because I can't listen to Kat's side of the story, so I'll have to return this one. (Or maybe just listen to Dan's chapters!)

I never write reviews but..

I love Penny Reid but I can't audio with this book. The performances are so off to me. Kat is very abrupt and the feel isn't right, and Dan.... I am from Boston, love the place, love the accent...sometimes, but if Dan walked up to me with that accent, I would smack him upside the head and tell him to go back to New York where he is obviously from. Anyway, I am sure they are great narrators, it just doesn't feel authentic to the characters. I'm going to have to finish up e-reading this one.

I LOVE Penny Reid. My favorite romance novelist.

This was so great. I try to reserve my 5-Star ratings for things like War & Peace or Interview With the Vampire, but Penny, IMO, is in those authors’ league with Knitting in the City and The Winston Brothers. Some of the best fiction in existence. I also love her older stuff, though not quite as much.

I love how Penny addresses different emotionally-charged social issues, such as mental illness like this, in her stories. It makes them so much better, so much more accessible on an emotional level.

I think this is the first time I’ve heard Angela Dawe and Stephen Dexter. They did great. Excellent pacing, excellent genders, excellent accents, excellent characterization. No complaints at all.

Emensly Anoying

Any additional comments?

Some books are meant to be read and not listened to. This is one of those. This is not a bad book, just incredibly annoying to listen to. It goes on and on and nothing happens. The irritating narration adds to the annoyance. I gave up listening and read the book.

F bombs times 1,000,000+Hated the male narration

The language ruined this one for me. Penny Reid is one of my top 3 favorite authors and I have read everything she has written. I was SO turned off by the amount of f-bombs in this story. Literally, in almost every sentence Dan uttered... it was over the top. I know this doesn't bother some, but it did me. Also, I hated Dan's heavily over done accent. It made him sound dumb and unattractive. Angela Dawe was wonderful, as usual, as Kat. The story itself could have been a 4.5 star for me if it hadn't been for those two things...

BEWARE:THIS IS NOT RECORDED IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER

i love this author, whoever recorded this book messed up big. the book starts at chapter 17 and at 19 min 57 seconds into the chapter. if you start this recording at the beginning you will be hearing the middle of the story first. very frustrating as it ruined my listening experience. the story is still as good as the others though.

Amazing book!!! Horrible narration!!

Luckily the story was so amazing that I was able to continue with the horrible narration! At one point one of the characters sounded like Kermit the Frog! I laughed out loud and cried through this book! I am now starting over to listen to the entire series for the second time!!! I love Penny Reid!!!

I adore Dan the security man

OMG!!! With every book in this series, I thought I found the perfect new BBF or BFF. I loved Quinn, then Greg, and of course the women. Each one of the ladies made me want to take up knitting or restart crocheting. I adored all of the books and Dan, the security man has always been there in the background, helping keep Quinn sane, helping with whatever shenanigans or craziness ensues, and watching Kat. Always watching Kat.
Kat is hiding from her wealth, her family, and men. With her family history, she is terrified of the future and becoming "addicted" to anything new. She loves her knitting group, is crushing hard on Dan, and prefers to stay in the background, unnoticed and afraid.
These two have been dancing around one another for more than 2 years and had a near miss in Vegas. There was a terrible misunderstanding that sent them spinning away from each other but still watching one another and longing.
Dan is hysterical and real and so sweet. His inner monologue deserves it's own show. I laughed out loud so many times. His ability to be a tough guy and then turn around and quote West Side Story was perfect. He has wanted Kat since the moment they met. He knows that she is an heiress in hiding. He knows there is way more to her than anyone suspects but he makes a miscalculation and lets her go when they finally collide. And the Narrator was SPECTACULAR!!! I adored listening to him and I cannot wait to find more books that he reads!!
Kat is a ball of fear and nerves. Her life has always been slightly out of control and her inner monologue is all over the place. She doesn't trust herself and she really doesn't want anyone to know who she really is. But Dan, oh Dan the security man, she really, really wants him.
A dying father and a fake marriage throw them back into one another's orbit. They crash into one another and chaos ensues.
I love this group of people. They make me laugh, sigh, and desire to take up knitting. These kind of friends are special and so much fun. I hate that this is the last book of the group because I have fallen in love with them all. And I have fallen in love with this author.

Enjoy!

The narration of this book is excellent, the intonation of both characters spot on. Loved the humour and the storyline. Slightly sad that the epilogue seems to indicate no more in this series....

Dreadful Accents

This is a junky story that is poorly "performed". Especially the male voice, not believable.

Perfect ending to the series

I was worried that this book would wrap up the whole series in a half hearted attempt that so many books seem to do these days. I had nothing to fear. This book answers a lot of the series questions and doesn't rush through the ending at all! definately worth the read/listen.
