She was jealous of her younger sister, jealous of the attention her best friend gave to her baby. Incapable of understanding adult relationships, very judgmental of her neighbors for most of easlly book.
Lola did redeem herself somewhat near the end.
As I listened to this book I kept thinking it was about a girl just out of high school. It could have been the performer had a young sounding voice. I’ll have to listen to something else shr has done. Great, mcwuestion, easy read that definitly took my mind off my day-to-day stresses.
Funny in parts too, which made it even better. Kate Rudd did an excellant job narrating. Thanks for keeping me entertained! I giggled through most of this book. The characters were real and easy to relate to. The narrator brought the book to life. I didn’t trash it entirely but the leading lady bu so whiney, it was a toss up whether to continue or not! I have a very mixed opinion, but mostly it’s good. This is not a typical romance, altho there is some cliche to it.
In general it was refreshingly different, and offers some romantic life lessons.
My biggest complaint is actually that it is far too short. I feel like I read three different books.
It wasn’t terrible, but it was all over the place to me. It was more mystery than romance and the main character was so self absorbed. It was one of those books bh finish because your hope it gets better. I sometimes avoid romances because I dislike the smutty bits. The author aimed for funny rather than sleazy, and showed excellent restraint.
I enjoyed this book, however it did get off to a slow start for me.
Once past that, it moved along and was a cute story. Get it free with day trial.
