The narration was good. The most memorable and enjoyable characters were the elderly ladies. They provided the spark and interest that kept me listening to the story. The male dialogue was almost laughable in many spots and often tiresome and predictable in others, it was formulaic and off-putting. The adoption angle was intriguing and I would have liked that aspect of the story to be more developed and more resolved; it was much more interesting than the romance between the characters. I would consider buying another book in the series if the elderly ladies take center stage.
Would you try another book from Shirley Jump and/or Susan Boyce?
I liked Boyce's performance, and I might try another novel written by Jump but this book in particular was not particularly memorable. I liked the three nosy elderly ladies who charged themselves with the task of getting Luke and Olivia together. So I might read the next book in the series just to see what other lives they decide to meddle in.
Would you recommend The Sweetheart Bargain to your friends? Why or why not?
I would recommend it to anyone who appreciates a formulaic contemporary romance. I don't mean that in a bad way, as sometimes I reach for the comfort of these type of books. and I enjoyed the three nosy senior citizens playing fairy godmothers.
