I think I would like this book. I have liked the two other Dee Ernst books I have listened to. And I have several Joyce Bean narrated books in my library. She isn't on my "absolute-favorite narrator of all time list" but she is generally a good "reader". However she affects such a stereotypical New Jersey accent in this book, I could not finish it. It grated on my nerves so badly, I had to stop reading. A strong New Jersey accent is challenging to listen to even if it is authentic. This was so affected and such a caricature of the real thing, if I was from New Jersey I would be insulted.
I will probably pick up the ebook and read it eventually. It is going to take awhile for the awfulness of the audiobook to be wiped from my memory though.
If you are a huge Dee Ernst fan, the narration might be acceptable to you. If not, listener be warned.

I really liked this story in the beginning. I listened to the book and the narrator was fun to listen to. There was a lot of humor which I love in any book...but then it just got old and there was no real story towards the end. It wasn't a bad book, but I was expecting more out of it.

This was an easy listen, not too taxing and perfect for a beach read.
I did get a little bored in places but other parts were laugh at loud funny.
I loved the story, the performance and I have to say literally laughed out loud amd snorted and chuckled several times! Excellent book!
