There are three things you need to know about Kat Tanner (aka Kathleen Tyson...and yes, she is that Kathleen Tyson). One: She’s determined to make good decisions. Two: She must get married ASAP. And three: She knows how to knit.
Being a billionaire heiress isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. In fact, it sucks. Determined to live a quiet life, Kat Tanner changed her identity years ago and eschewed her family’s legacy. But now, Kat’s silver spoon past has finally caught up with her, and so have her youthful mistakes. To avoid imminent disaster, she must marry immediately; it is essential that the person she chooses have no romantic feelings for her whatsoever and be completely trustworthy.
Fortunately, she knows exactly who to ask. Dan O’Malley checks all the boxes: single, romantically indifferent to her, completely trustworthy. Sure, she might have a wee little crush on Dan the Security Man, but with clear rules, expectations, and a legally binding contract, Kat is certain she can make it through this debacle with her sanity - and heart - all in one piece.
Except, what happens when Dan O’Malley isn’t as indifferent - or as trustworthy - as she thought?

So sad to be this happy......
I came late the Knitting in The City Books, I read all of them back to back and had to wait only a couple of weeks for Marriage of Inconvenience. So I feel I may have cheated a bit because I had no long wait between stories, but what a wonderful ending for this group (my so happy from the title). I found the knitting stories through the Winston Brothers Series and I love both equally or so I believed. I thought Cletus was my perfect male character until I read Dan the Security Man's story. He and Kat's story was so wonderfully romantic and hilarious, mainly due to Dan. Dan was such a rich and well developed character; maybe due to Mrs. Reid being able to ruminate on him throughout the other Knitting in the City stories. I also think Mrs. Reid 's change of writing style to tell Dan and Kat's story was perfect. The change added a great deal to my enjoyment of the book and made the smile on my face so much bigger. The story was well balanced with laugh out loud funny moments as well as great examples of "cry porn". The funny parts were much more numerous. This book included some suspense and intrigue also. And per usual for a Penny Reid novel, I came away with a little bit more knowledge on a couple of topics. In this book I learned a little something about the pharmaceutical industry and came away with some points to ponder regarding mental illness. I thank Penny for the thoughts on mental illness. Now my complaint (the sad): is this the end of the series?? All of the original group have paired off and have their HEA. We have seen a little peak of each couple's HEA as they were a part of the next novel in the series but was it enough? If I could ask Mrs. Reid for a favor it would be to write a story (even if it is just a short story or novella) that is set 15 or 20 years in the future that gives a nice glimpse of the life each couple has lived and how their marriage/relationship developed over the years. Some stories about their children, their home/household, and their careers. Who had children, how many and whose children have become close. Which husbands became close friends as the years passed. And most important how did the relationship of the ladies change and grow as they aged and distance separated them, did it end the Tuesday night tradition? Or did it make them find other ways to support and appreciate each other? How does the Tuesday night knitting group look years later and is the love and appreciation of the friendship still the same? I know Mrs. Reid has so many irons in the fire but I would love a HEA that wraps up the entire series. I also need to say that due to this series I have become a knitter, still early stages but I’m hooked. There are no groups or shops in my area so I am learning via videos and books but I am sticking with it, so thank you for the hobby. And thank you for the company, I lost my husband recently to pancreatic cancer and the ladies in the knitting group became friends when I needed them. So I appreciated their company more than I can say, thank you so much. Thank you for such well developed and engaging characters, I love them all.

I loved the story, disliked the heroines narrator
Any additional comments?
This is the last book in the Knitting in the City series, so considering I've come this far you'd be right in assuming I'm a huge fan of the series. I already have this book on my Kindle, but wanted to be able to listen to it as well. I devoured the book on my kindle in one sitting, and felt it was the absolute perfect ending. I truly loved Kat and Dan (Dan cusses a lot, but this isn't something that bothers me at all).
Unfortunately, I feel the female narrator was completely wrong for Kat. Kat's personality is more quiet, not weak in any way, just quiet. The narrator reads extremely fast and makes Kat sound very aggressive. (Sidenote, this is the same narrator used for Beard in Mind, and I felt she 'fit' the personality of the heroine). I literally cringed at how she read Kat. It isn't the narrator's voice, just her interpretation.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, the narrator for Dan is absolutely perfect. His accent, tone, and reading speed fits Dan to a t!
Considering the perfection of Dan's narrator, I'm just so sad because I can't listen to Kat's side of the story, so I'll have to return this one. (Or maybe just listen to Dan's chapters!)

The narration of this book is excellent, the intonation of both characters spot on. Loved the humour and the storyline. Slightly sad that the epilogue seems to indicate no more in this series....

This is a junky story that is poorly "performed". Especially the male voice, not believable.

Perfect ending to the series
I was worried that this book would wrap up the whole series in a half hearted attempt that so many books seem to do these days. I had nothing to fear. This book answers a lot of the series questions and doesn't rush through the ending at all! definately worth the read/listen.
