enjoyable story and narration

I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook - primarily because of the narration. If not for such amazing narration, I would've found this book to be just another cliche, single-girl-in-the-big-city story . . . with such creative narration I was able to enjoy the story much more. The reader did an outstanding job of giving each character their own distinct voice . . . it was hard to believe there wasn't an entire cast of actors telling the story. Highly recommended!

Very Enjoyable

At first, I thought this book might be a mistake. I wasn't too crazy about the opening chapter, and I wasn't sure if I liked the main character. I'm really glad I stuck with it though. The novel is sweet and adorable, and the characters are funny and realistic. I loved the dynamic between the two sisters -- it was familiar and made me laugh. The novel takes its time and sets up a lovely, cozy world that provides a wonderful escape.
