Been a women of the same age I could totally relate to the women in this story, had me laughing out loud and made me smile loads. What more can you ask for. Will be trying one of Nikki's books. Thank you

Fun story, horrid music

Ugh. The drum/guitar at the beginning, ending and sometimes middle of every chapter is too loud, too harsh and doesn’t work with the story.
The story is fun, voices are done very well and a believable story.

Devoured the whole 11 podcasts in one listen!

This is an awesome book in podcast form that explores & explains the very different lives & view points of 4 amazing ladies along with the views of their female relatives & even their male relationships! It’s funny, sad, angry, scary, empowering every single emotion is touched on throughout the 11 episodes as well as relationship & tensions between mother daughter & men -oh the men as well as so so much more! This is an edge of your seat screaming don’t do that to your playing device or laughing out loud so much so you draw attention of others. I pulled for Don from the beginning & just hoped Lou would get her s—t straight before the end. With the things left as they were I feel a part 2 would be great with another 11+ Eps. Showcasing the loose ends not completely tied up in the 1st series. Plus I so loved Don. He so much more manly than Lou’s other men she still has no idea what a real man can do esp when your hearts are in the mix! She just hasn’t ever been loved by a real man!! Please write a part 2 or atleast a few for chapters! The writing is awesome the narration perfectly done by each reader brings the characters to life! The only thing I wish were different was the intro and outro tune lengths the rest was perfection great job y’all!

Hard to hear

The music it Loud and unnecessary. It’s very distracting. The back round noise also over power the characters and you can’t hear them at various points

Great story horrible sound effects

The story and narrators were great but the sound quality was horrible. For a great deal of the story crickets are heard in the background, which is fine but they were so loud it made it difficult to hear the actual characters speaking. It was almost annoying enough to stop listening entirely.

Ok

Music was annoying. Liked the characters. Found some of the situations not quite believable. A good listen for a long car ride.

perfect listen for girlfriends group

I think this would be a fun book to listen to with a group of women friends. The characters are real, the performances of dialogue overlap realistically and the stories of each woman don't seem contrived. (kissing scenes a bit silly sounding)
Enjoyed and recommend.

Background sounds/music should stay in the background

The performance by the human actors was brilliant. But the sound effects and music often were louder than the speaking parts.

No huge surprises, you can guess the ending by about the first episode, but there’s nothing wrong with that sometimes!

Needs some audio tweaking.

I really enjoyed it but the background noise was way to loud. I couldn’t hear the characters part of the time.

DNF

I found it annoying. I was hoping it would be something I could relate to with older women characters, but alas, not related to me in any way.
