This was painful

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

With a better reader this pretty standard contemporary romance could have been o.k. The reader's voice was nice but her reading was one of the worst I've ever listened to. This was poorly produced with laughable pronunciations throughout.

Has Best-Laid Plans turned you off from other books in this genre?

I love contemporary romance fiction but good ones are hard to find. I will keep looking.

How could the performance have been better?

A producer or someone should have gone through to help with pronunciation.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Well I finished it, mostly because I was knitting and didn't have anything else to listen to. This was an ordinary story, not that well written, but would have been o.k. with a decent reader. A great reader can really help most books. This book suffers from less than great writing and a poor reader.

Fun and steamy

Amanda and Lucas have been best friends for twelve years. When Lucas comes to visit after not seeing one another for two years, they start to discover feelings they never noticed before. But will getting together ruin their friendship? Then a new guy steps into the picture and Amanda has some decisions to make. This was a lot of fun, with 80's fashions and decorating, bantering between comfortable friends, and plenty of steam. They were both great characters and I was rooting for them to get together, waiting for them to get their act together already. But they had to adjust to seeing one another in a new way.

Jill Arehart did a nice job on the narration. She has a great voice for it. She brings the characters to life and does an admirable job with the French that is thrown in.
