Downright Frothy

To describe this book as light reading is inadequate...it's so light it's downright frothy. I purchased this title 3 years ago because I enjoy reading seasonal books and was looking for something Thanksgiving-themed. As a previous reviewer wrote, the dialogue is definitely cheesy. It's also filled with tired clichés and characters speaking to each other in a manner found only in a high school writing course. Still, I've listened to it for 3 Thanksgiving seasons in a row...why? Because when Evanovich writes as the narrator rather than her characters, she provides vivid and inviting descriptions of Colonial Williamsburg, so charming and appealing you feel as if you were there, or at least you wish you were. It makes wading through all the cheese worth it.

Not her best one

I wasn't enamored by Thanksgiving. I had listened to a couple of her Stephanie Plum books and found them quite entertaining. This book (not a S. Plum story) was not as cleverly written.

Love the ending!

Another great Janet Evanovich--and C J Critt is a wonderful narrator!! It always makes me warm and fuzzy at the end!

Ok but not great.

Thanksgiving was a fun little holiday listen. I was not crazy about the narrator and the story was a little silly at times but that is kind of what you expect for fun short holiday themed books. I have read better but I don’t regret buying this book it had many cute funny parts and was nice to listen to right before the holidays.

Ugh

Degrading female characterization that seems straight out of the 1950's, and exasperatingly cheesy dialogue and story. Don't waste your time.

Sexist, abusive.

If you like a man turned on by seeing a woman in his kitchen or rocking a baby by the fire, without getting to know her or even ask what she does for a living, this is the book for you. Oh and he assaults her.

Good for fluffy holiday entertainment

Another reviewer was right in calling out the outdated gender stereotypes and cringe worthy exchanges between characters. I wasn’t expecting depth in a book about a specific holiday. I agree with the reviewer that said the narration is the best part of the book—great descriptions of a Thanksgiving setting. This is a great listen during holiday meal prep and cleaning, just don’t begrudge it for the whipped cream that it is!

Terrible book

Bad plot, writing and flow. Did not like it from beginning to end! The narrator was flat. One of the worst books I’ve ever listened to!

Not your usual.

Very different, but entertaining and delightful
I think I would enjoy more of this but can't imagine how it would go.

Thanksgiving

I absolutely loved this audio! And then when the lady left Little Timmy to Dr. Hunter and a.k.a. Mrs. Hunter, I am so glad that Tilie and the Navy guy is going to get married. That is so wonderful. I had to laugh when she proposed marriage to Dr. Hunter. Fortunately, when they took Timmy, it got her to thinking about having a child. And she proposed marriage, but he turned her down, sad. And I am so glad that he proposed marriage to her. Because he has loved her from the start. Such an amazing audio, loved every minute of it.
