🎧 Funny Story by Emily Henry #EmilyHenry @BerkleyRomance @BerkleyPub @justjuliawhelan @PRHAudio @Librofm #LoveAudiobooks

Emily Henry’s stories related by Julia Whelan really hit the feelings for me.  Funny Story started as not at all funny but heartbreaking. The outcome was ironic, not humorous funny.  With only a week to find somewhere to live, Daphne ends up with the ex-fiancé (Miles) of her ex-fiancé’s (Peter) new fiancé (Petra).  Uh, yeah. […]

I can always count on Lynn Painter for snappy, forthright dialogue and interesting concepts.  In this case, having an objector at the wedding when one of the party is a cheater.  It makes it feel more like it is not the non-cheater’s fault, as though they are an innocent victim rather than an accuser.  I […]

[…]

The Catch by Amy Lea @amyleabooks  #KelseyNavarroFoster @Berkley @Berkley Pub @PRHAudio #LoveAudiobooks

I liked the characters in The Catch, eventually.  At first, they felt like caricatures which were ridiculous, rather than real people, playing roles instead of feeling like banter.   As they connected more as people, and talked to each other, it felt less like a performance and more like real life.
