Summary

When newlywed Penny begins some casual wedding planning, she only wants to help women afford the big day of their dreams. But taming bridezillas turns out to be a full-time occupation, and what began as a hobby becomes a nightmare. Soon Penny is struggling to keep her day job and prevent her own marriage from collapsing: Tired, stressed, and knee-deep in ivory satin, is Penny's life and livelihood hanging by a thread?

lovely light hearted listen

absolutely love the Don't Tell series, I read these when they first came out & thought I'd purchase the Audible version. penny is such a lovely character, even though she had made a few bad Decisions, there was times I was shouting at her, telling her what to do, but that made it even more enjoyable. Penelope Rawlins is a absolutely fabulous narrator, she acted out voices for all the characters really well, except Lou, she sounded like a man. overall really enjoyed it......

Very predictable

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I found that the entire story was really obvious. It was humorous in parts and it did flow well from the last book. Something minor would happen or be said and I felt it was just a bit too obvious what then happened.

If you’ve listened to books by Anna Bell before, how does this one compare?

I felt the first book was a lot better.

Which character – as performed by Penelope Rawlins – was your favourite?

I did like the main character Penny and Henry was good

Do you think Don't Tell the Boss needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

There is scope for a follow on book

Any additional comments?

Very well read
