Great storytelling! The amount of details that this author has put into each character and their inner workings was just enough to really feel what they were feeling. The narrator that voiced Jenny was phenomenal! Some other reviewers mentioned the narrator was like listening to a robot. They're referring to the voice of Rachel, Jenny's sister. I thought her depiction of Rachel was spot on for that character, slightly mechanical in a sense. once I got toward the end of the novel, the narrator seemed to "grow" with the character as Rachel evolved.
If you're looking for a novel that is funny, heartwarming, scandalous, dramatic, and yes- heartbreaking - this is your book!
I really enjoy Kristen Higgins style of writing. In fact I’ve read &/or listened to almost everything she’s written. Xe Sands is an INCREDIBLE narrator! However, I found this book to be extremely depressing and the narrator that read the voice of Rachel was awful!! The sultry, sex kitten yet robotic-monotonous toned voice was very very hard to listen to. Her inflection just seemed all wrong for the character. I finished it bc I’m no quieter
I love the author’s books but this one was a little off for me. The characters constant internal rehashing was getting old but I enjoyed the storyline and it was very relatable to my life. Always a fan of Xe Sands.
I almost gave up on this book and I am so glad I didn’t. It is a good story, just takes time to get engrossed
Fantastic book loved every minute except at the very end it cut out. I absolutely loved this one and a must read!!!
Cute storyline. Was a little hard to get into, didn't love Rachel's narrator. But overall I did enjoy it.
I loved this book! The narration was perfect..humorous and yet I cried..
Loved this book! Already downloaded
another by this writer!
I’m encouraged to study the other books of this author.
Storyline was good and deals wells with relationship issues. However, the switch between the 2 main character was distracting the way it was written. the narrators do a good job with expressing the characters emotions.
Great listen. Now a fan and looking forward to listening to more of the same.
Did not like it did not finish it
I really liked this book. Could not stop listening. Has made me a fan of this writer. Will be listening to other books from this writer.
Rachael narrator was terrible sorry
This was a great story. The narration was Amazing! It feels like she is talking to you, not reading a book!
Started off like really trashy Mills & Boon type but did improve further in. Not great though and very predictable. I won’t be looking at any more from this author.
This book pulled me in and wouldn’t let go. The narrator was fabulous!
I enjoyed this very much. The story was well written and brought me along on a wonderful journey. The different narrators was a great idea. Highly recommend.
I kept listening but was getting angry at so many brutal, cruel and just jerky characters! The two sisters seemed normal enough but had rotten husbands, other men were just narcissistic and mysonigist and Rachel's so called girlfriends acted like those eighth grade nasty popular girls - putting everyone down. And their mother is such a piece of work. I could not understand why they kept her in their lives at all - toxic woman!
I really did not understand Jenny's attraction to her smug super either. I kept yelling at her - "no!". I don't think she listened to me.
Anyway, I kind of felt sorry for the writer if this is how she sees the world.
Jenny's narration was my favourite of the two.
I enjoyed the story. The characters were relatable. Some of the narration was weird - ie the kid’s voices.
The plot was interesting. But the characters' internal dialogues were prone to rehash the same thing over and over. And the breathy, flat, drawn out style of narration was irritating and didn't seem to fit the tone of the book.
Great story. Horrible narration. Whiny, breathy and sounded depressed all the time. What’s super annoying is these are the same 2 narrators for many of Kristan Higgin’s books. So on top of it being annoying you have to then hear the same voices over and over for different characters in different books it makes it hard to listen seems like somebody should’ve thought of that before having the same exact narrators in several books. So in this book her name is Jenny but same voice is other characters in other books.
Loved the story! Only problem with audiobooks is when the narrator who is speaking as one of the characters says “and she says” before she reads the next line. If you know the character already it takes away from it sounding like it’s in first person.
Good book. Took a while to get into but great story
Great book! I loved it. The narrators are excellent. It leaves you wanting more.
Loved it!! Characters were really good
I enjoyed the story - it brought me some though that I never came about. The narration is also perfect
Very good story and the narrator is the best I’ve heard.
Very humorous and a fun read!
Great character development and cohesion kept my interest and was well written. A fun few hours.
Once again I am left feeling happy and satisfied with the book as a whole but especially with the ending. Looking forward to downloading another Higgins novel to fill my ears with a satisfying escape from the every day world.
Trust and love reign supreme!
Enjoyed listening to this book
The story itself is nice. The characters are distinct. But to be honest... seriously. I was so convinced, it had to be a man who wrote this book. The women are so needy and dependent on the men in the story, that it was close to be ridiculous. Sorry!
I loved this book. I loved the characters and how the writer built each one up.
Nice book, the second narrator was not so great. Refreshing outlook at family.
This book really made the reader think. Do you actually need to know everything? How does perception vs reality impact your outlook in life? The characters were well written and each had his/her own course, yet were intertwined. I really enjoyed it.
It was a great read. Funny and emotional at the same time. Love the characters personalities.
A great read & I actually lol"d in places
Great book! Narration was strange, both readers were very whimsical and almost depressing in the way they read the characters.
Great book really enjoyed listening the Narrator.
