A nice cute romance novel
I loved this charming audio-book because I could listen to it with my daughter. Some romance books are almost shameful with so many sex scenes. We both adored the narrator. Joshua Bennington. He has a mesmerizing voice and we were awed at the life he gave the characters.We recommend the audio-book highly and gave it 5 stars.

A Perfect Tonic!
A great tale speckled with humour throughout. The narrator is as smooth and lovely as Chacon’s writing. The words dance in your head and into your heart.
Miranda is a librarian, invisible to most around her, save the ones who matter! We discover Miranda has inherited a house from an aunt in Florida but all is not as it may at first seem. Having spent some time in Florida myself I felt that the author has captured it perfectly. I could feel the heat on the back of my neck and picture Miranda’s tin can of a car perfectly. Her descriptions of the old ladies sitting on their porches each morning were well drawn and entertaining. They were so well-drawn that I found myself imagining sitting alongside them! Miranda is original and funny and the humour comes across well. She has her own mind and is not afraid to use it. The story flows with ease which is a testament to the great writing. Without giving away any spoilers Finding Miranda is ultimately a love story with some thrilling twists, which were original and well thought through. I was rooting for Miranda without realising it, again another sign of a good writer. My only complaint is that the book was not long enough, I would happily have devoured more chapters and could listen to the narrator for days! Miranda is definitely my kind of gal! If you like chick lit with a touch of mystery then this book is for you. With summer almost upon us, I would heartily recommend this book as a great holiday read, you won’t be disappointed!

She knew a scary woman when she saw one.
Had this reader noticed that Finding Miranda was billed as a romance, I almost certainly wouldn't have listened to it - and what a loss that would have been. Yes, it is a love story: the girl no one can see until a gorgeous hunk discovers her hiding behind a castor bean plant, and she, like all the other ladies in Magnolia Street, joins the daily coffee ritual watching him and his giant dog jog past.
It is above all a laugh out loud comedy mixed with mystery, thrills, dastardly deeds and pathos.
Brilliant characterisation, too, especially the dog!
Narrator Joshua Bennington is, quite simply put, superb. And, like the book, extremely quirky, with an unconventional drawling reading, with odd gaps and accents, deep voice and great intonation. It fits the delightfully odd story to perfection. Oh, and special mention must be made of the wonderful doggy 'Groofs'. The addition of an occasional harmonica rift between chapters is the final cherry on the cake.
Ignore the 'romance' label. Weird, wonderful and gloriously funny, this is a book not to be missed.
