Editorial Reviews

Hank Malone, small-town-Vermont "bad boy," hires New Jersey would-be author Maggie Toone to pretend to be his wife to improve his image so that he can get a business bank loan for his apple orchard. Of course, the inevitable happens, and Hank and Maggie fall in love. C.J. Critt plunges into the frothy romance with gusto, keeping the tempo fast and the interplay between the main characters sexy, rapid-fire, and funny. A plus is Critt's portrayal of a feisty, gun-toting housekeeper, who keeps the action on its toes. Fans of Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series should not expect a mystery here. But for light listening pleasure, this fits the bill.

Publisher's Summary

Hank Mallone knows he's in trouble when Maggie Toone agrees to pretend to be his wife in order to improve his rogue's reputation. Will his harebrained scheme to get a bank loan for his business backfire once Maggie arrives in his small Vermont town and lets the gossips take a look? Maggie never expected her employer to be drop-dead handsome, but she's too intrigued by his offer to say no...and too eager to escape a life that made her feel trapped. The deal is strictly business, both agree, until Hank turns out to be every fantasy she ever had.

Elementary school narration

This audiobook may have been less torture if the narrator would have read to an adult audience. It was so so slow. She may do better reading to young elementary school children. Her characterization was annoying... I do not recommend this audiobook.

Would you listen to Wife for Hire again? Why?

I have listened to her book previous to buying it, I love how she writes. I fell in love with the Plum series and decided to give her other books a try.
