Publisher's Summary

A talking pearl earring. A gleaming white unicorn. A flower from an ogre.
Sandy Blunt, a witch, has big dreams but C-average magic skills. Her only noteworthy talent is for paying extravagant compliments to women. Trouble is, when she uses that gift, she unwittingly foretells the future for a pretty princess. And, the punishment for prophesying about one of royal blood is death...
With the help of ill-assorted companions - including a self-proclaimed princess in disguise, a self-absorbed member of the royal guard, and the not-so-average girl next door - Sandy has a year and a day to travel to far-flung places, collecting the weird and magical items needed to turn her prophecies into promises and evade the executioner. Along the way, she encounters such dangerous creatures as a dragon who writes awful poetry, slovenly elves, and boarding house landladies.

A world of remarkable women.

Would you consider the audio edition of Promises, Promises to be better than the print version?

Did not read the print version. I bought the audio because it came highly recommended.

Would you be willing to try another book from L-J Baker? Why or why not?

Yes, She has a wonderful imagination, and her dscriptions are both funny and erotic.

What does Kitty Hendrix bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Ms. Hendrix does an amazing reading. I can't imagine how anyone can so clearly define each character and provide such a flawless narration. She has given me a much greater afffection for audio books.

If you could rename Promises, Promises, what would you call it?

I would call it something like "A World of Promises" to avoid confusion with the Broadway show.

Any additional comments?

Overall a fun read. I have never cared much for audio books, but this was highly recommended for its content and its narrator. As the title promises, promises,itwas a romp.
