Publisher's Summary

All her life, Grace Ryan was the "fat girl". Taunted and teased and ignored by her peers, she tried every diet ever invented to no avail. Desperate to change her life as her 20s slipped away, she decided it was time for drastic measures and had lap-band surgery. More than a year later, she's lost 130 pounds and is venturing into the dating world for the first time. During a boat trip to Gansett Island with the new guy in her life, Grace refuses to have sex with him and finds herself abandoned without a dollar to her name at McCarthy's Gansett Island Marina.
At home for the summer awaiting the launch of his debut CD, music star-in-the-making Evan McCarthy is performing at the Tiki Bar when he notices Grace looking lost in a sea of happy people. Evan comes to her aid and quickly finds himself smitten. But the last thing Grace needs after all she’s been through is a guy who "doesn't do relationships". Will Evan change his ways to win Grace's heart?"Another solid entry into the McCarthy’s of Gansett Island series.

Enjoyable despite the narration.

I enjoyed this listen as part of the Gansett Island series. As usual there was great chemistry between the main characters and an ongoing connection with previous books in the series. Unfortunately the narration seemed even worse in this listen than in the ones that came before.

horrible narration

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

someone who can stand to listen to a dull drone


Would you recommend Hoping for Love to your friends? Why or why not?

i would recommed the book not the audio


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Holly Fielding?

anyone has to do a better job. she had no emotion, no character change, i had to replay sevreral times because i couldnt tell who was who. half the time she was gasping for breath at the beginning of each blah sentence.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

anger beacause it could have been so much better and i will purchase the paperback from amazon if available


Any additional comments?

could someone not tell after the first chapter that this narrator was wrong ???
