Summary:

In Flirting with Pete, bestselling author Barbara Delinsky weaves together two fascinating narratives that merge in a dramatic, highly emotional, and totally unexpected conclusion, as a daughter's struggle to win the approval of the father she never knew becomes a journey of self-discovery.

Psychologist Casey Ellis never met her father -- but that didn't stop her from following in his professional footsteps. Now he has died, and Casey is shocked to have inherited his elegant Boston town house, complete with a maid and a handsome, enigmatic gardener. When she finds a manuscript that could be a novel, a journal, or a case study of one of her father's patients in her new home, she becomes engrossed in the story of Jenny, a young woman trying to escape her troubled life. Convinced the story is true and that her father left it as a message for her, Casey digs deeper. As she pieces together the mysteries surrounding her father, Jenny, and the romantic new stranger in her life, she discovers startling links between past and present, and unexpected ties between what is real and what is imagined.

    I thought this was a lovely diversion while driving to work.

    I enjoyed this audio...I only wished it was the unabridged version because it would have given more background about the characters. Although I didn't get as much character background and details as I prefer, I really liked these characters and the story line. I'm a sucker for a good romance with a happy ending.

  • Jamie McDonald

    I loved it. Great story...kept me in until the end.

    A tall tale within a tall tale. Too formulaic for my taste

  • Annette Kordgien

    What an interesting listen. It is all there...mystery, murder, love, etc. Also, an added bonus of being drawn into the workings of the mind, of life experiences. Would rent it again.

    Ambiguity backfires when the reader isn't aptly rewarded. When the light is shed, it is ho-hum. Still, I thought the story was fair. Too much romanticism for my stomach, though.

    Enjoyable. Nothing deep, but easy listening. There were not too many characters to keep you trying to piece them altoghter. And Finally a book that actually has an ending. So many books these days end, leaving you up in the air. Unless the author decides to write a sequel, I wish they would all conclude the story line.
