Great fun ...a really enjoyable read

Enjoyed this fun uptodate romance very much.... moreso than the tv series which has a quite different story line and felt a bit awkward at times to me... Well balanced tale, a great first book for Zoe and excellent narration thank you Aimee Home.

A fun and pacy book

This was a great story that was really brought to life by the narrator's accents and intonation. It felt really immersive and like I was actually overhearing the characters speak.

Good light hearted story.

Story kept moving and takes you into a believable Australian space, with the behaviours of typical young Aussie. Characters brought to life by the reader.

Aussie Aussie Aussie

It really is nice to listen to some Australian literature, I really enjoyed this not least because of some true blue Australianisms but also because it's a sweet story. Great job all round.

Fun story but narrator was hard to bare

The narrator used the voices you use when you are mocking someone for all the other characters... Didn't give a good vibe. Fun story though!

Annoying character voices

I started out enjoying this book, I like the narrator's voice reading the book. But the character voices are way over the top and all sound the same, I can't tell who's who. Still listening but losing interest fast.

The Wrong Girl is the right girl

This is a fun ride through romance and ratings when TV producer Lily navigates the maze of a cut-throat network television industry, friends with benefits, and a hot new talent with romantic potential.

Foster’s witty novel works because of her oh-so-human characters, with all their foibles and quirks. The snappy dialogue, embarrassing situations and never-ending hope make The Wrong Girl a highly enjoyable romantic romp through single life and professional ambition.

When it comes to spoken comedy however, the timing is in the delivery and Aimee Horne excels as the audiobook narrator. She not only delivers distinct characters, but lands their snappy dialogue and inner thoughts beautifully. There are many laugh-out-loud moments thanks to Horne’s expert storytelling.

The Wrong Girl is chic lit that should appeal to everyone. It’s not my favourite genre. In fact, it’s a genre I usually avoid unless Bridget Jones is making an appearance. But, like everything in life, a blanket rule will make you miss out on so many good exceptions. The Wrong Girl is one of these exceptions. Chic lit, it may be, but it’s also a very funny comedy with very real emotion, believable characters and some surprising depth. It is Horne’s reading that make it for me however. Kudos to Foster’s wonderful source material but, as a tentative punter to the genre, it’s Horne’s timing and three dimensional delivery that really makes this a winner.

The Wrong Girl is worth multiple listens.
