Publisher's Summary

After being jilted at the altar, Zoe Moore flees to Boston, America, where she works as nanny to five-year-old Ruby Miller and her little brother, Samuel. Ruby and Samuel lost their mother in an accident; their father, Ryan Miller, is so wrapped up in his grief that he barely notices his two children. Whatever happened to the loving man she keeps hearing about from his neighbours?

    "Definitely a re listen"

    I absolutely loved this book, the story and characters are so loveable, you can't help but fall for them. The only thing that bothered me a little was the narrators Boston accent, which sounded like a bad fat Tony impression from the Simpsons!

    "Ending felt rushed"

    The last few chapters felt rushed with no details, a very quick ending with no epilogue, quite disappointing finish.

    "Enjoyable easy listen"

    Really enjoyed this book. Very easy listening with good basic story that had moments of humour. Great narrator too.

    I just loved this book and finished it in 2 days. Yes it was a little predictable but I didn't care.

    Story
    "Characters were implausible, story didn't hold me"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The story line didn't hold my attention, the characters and their actions were implausible at times and the narrators accent was off-putting. Not my favorite read this year


    Has The Nearly-Weds put you off other books in this genre?

    NO but possibly this author and certainly this narrator


    Would you be willing to try another one of Emma Gregory’s performances?

    No


    Do you think The Nearly-Weds needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    definitely not

    "Not the quality I expected"

    Storyline was OK and would have kept me entertained throughout. I liked the characters and the way that the story developed.
    However, every paragraph was littered with similes, which was alright to begin with but became really irritating. It's not something I've ever picked up on in a book before but once I'd noticed the overuse of them (seriously, constantly!) it became even more annoying.
