I **loved** this book! It was the perfect fast, light, romance for the day I read it. Don't expect depth, but if you want a fun, funny, non-traditional heroine, with some truly laugh-out-loud moments, give it a try. The character development worked for me, but then, I'm not hyper-critical; I just want to be entertained.
Fast read, but not her best. still enjoyable
Fairly smooth blend of two writing styles. I have read this book three times in two weeks and laughed at Agnes' conversations to herself every time.
This book made me laugh from the incredulous beginning to hilarious end! I gasped for breath as I read the funniest passages out loud to my sister, and bought the audio book so we could listen to it in the car. Wonderful read!
Crusie and Mayer get it together this time, in a slow-starting story about a cranky food columnist with a penchant for bopping people with frying pans, a flamingo-studded wedding, and a psycho bitch grandmother-of-the-bride who may or may not be sitting on five million dollars in cash.
This book made me laugh out loud!! I loved it! The only drawback was a lot of language to wade thru. Not really needful in my opinion to make a good book!
Ok, I have to say that I went into this with a "whatever" attitude. I'd never read anything by Jennifer Cruise, and the only reason I even HAD the audiobook is because it came along with FOURTH COMINGS which is the one I had ordered. That being said...
I LOVED this one! At first, it was a bit slow as all the characters came into the picture, but after the first 1/2 hour of the 1st CD, I was hooked.
You could anticipate what was going to happen, so it didn't take rocket science to follow along. But the mishaps that befall Agnes, you feel so sorry for her and pray that everything comes together by Saturday's wedding.
I don't want to give away the pieces, so you'll just have to read or listen yourselves, but it was highly amusing, and will keep you giggling at all the bizarre characters that come together under Agnes' roof and drawn to her cooking. :)
I dearly loved this book. It kept me laughing the whole read!
I have enjoyed several Jennifer Crusie audio books, but this one was hard to follow. There were a lot of characters, and it took awhile to keep track of all of them. I think the problem could be that it is abriged, but it seemed like the plot moved ahead too quickly at times. I did not like this book.
