As I listened to this book, parts seemed very familiar to me. As it turns out, I read the paperback a few years ago. The "ending" sent me into storage at 4am to find the book. This recording is missing the last 30 pages of the book. If you felt cheated by the ending, you were.

What was most disappointing about Susan Mallery’s story?
I have enjoyed many of Susan Mallery's novels. Unfortunately, "Falling for Gracie" fell short for me. I found the character's to be basically unlikable. When I read a book, such as this, for enjoyment purposes, I want to feel invested in the characters. In other words, I want to like them.
Gracie, who was sweet, was constantly apologizing...constantly - taking responsibility for EVERYTHING on the face of the earth that ever "should o', would o', could of" gone wrong. It became pathetic, which made the story drag.
I like Susan Mallery, though. I find many of her novels fun.
Savannah Richards did a very good job performing the book. I think the problem was in the story, not the performance.
If I were the editor for this book, I would have cut most of the apologies. You can express regret without constantly whining," I'm sorry". I think that many women fall into the trap of empathizing with someone's circumstances by saying, I'm sorry. I have learned that when you constantly empathize by this method, you eventually become blamed for that situation. When I find myself in this position, I now say, "I hate that for you", It conveys that you understand and feel for your friend, without taking responsibility for it.
