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!

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

Ending felt rushed

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

Great Chick lit

I really liked this booked even if it was a bit simple and exasperating at times. There were some laugh out loud moments but also some unbelievable ones. Zoe was a lovely character but should have stood up to Ryan, Jason and her Mum much sooner. Maybe then I wouldn't be shouting at her in my car. Overall good book if you need a break from something heavier.

best book of janes

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