Summary

When Melissa is made unfairly redundant from her job at an estate agents' office, she decides it's time for a change. Instead of working for other people, Melissa will go into business for herself: using her organisational skills to whip the lives of London's socially and romantically challenged men into shape. Then Melissa meets Jonathan, and suddenly she must decide if she can mix business with pleasure....

Wonderful story shame about the narrator

This has been one of my favorite books for years. I was delighted when Audible released it. It's funny, lighthearted and has well rounded characters. The narrator Lara J. West isn't the best person to read it though as some of her accents, like Gabi's are painful. She also seems to have given Melissa's sister Emery a lisp. She does however do a good, plummy tone for Melissa. It might be my computer but I did have a problem with the story volume changing but overall being very quiet. Can't bring my self to send it back though as the story is such good, escapist Chick Lit!

Wonderfully silly

I love Hester Browne’s style, it’s always exactly what I’m after for some holiday reading escapism! I’ve always enjoyed the styles of her other narrators but West managed to drag each word out. I suggest 1.25x speed to kick it back into “lively”.

A delight!

The Little Lady Agency was fun and funny and a delightful read. I look forward to checking out more of Hester Browne‘s books.
