Great romance, good wit, and more than it seems

First Sandra Burr is delightful. She differentiates between characters with ease, and listening to her work is refreshing. Her voice has a bubble of amusement which lets the listener understand how the characters can see humor in the most depressing situations without glossing over the dark parts. This is a story of three women past their youth, and discovering that after all the best is yet to be. But even though the plot is superficially about discovering old murder, hidden diamonds, and poisonous secrets, it is also about discovering the characters never stop growing and learning, and under the wit and humor are the way these three women, and the men they love adjust to their new understanding. Oh yes, the sex is great. Experience does count here. This isn't a social studies text book, its a great story neatly woven and fun. I really like this author. She just gets better.

Couldn't put it down!

I'll agree that the plot was not quite your everyday normal life story, however the whole story was so intriguing that I kept my earphones on whenever I could to keep listening to the story! The imagery kept the whole thing fresh and clear in my mind's eye, the voices differed enough that you could keep the multitude of characters straight, and I kept crossing my fingers for everything to work out for Nell and the rest of the crew. I loved the china and how a collection could almost become a character in the story. And being a "first wife" I loved to see how Nell interacted with her ex-husband and his new wife!

Trying to be Evanovich

Not as good as Welcome to Temptation but still a fun listen. Nell is divorced, her husband got the company they built up together and now she needs a new job. She becomes an office manager in a private detective agency, but constantly clashes with the boss, even though she finds herself attracted to him.

I enjoyed the written version

I've been ill and needed something easy to listen to. I read this book years ago and enjoyed it so bought the audio version. It's still good, funny, relaxing and with a happy ending.
