Summary

Two very different sisters, Mia (still in love with Alejo, the married father of her daughter) and Britt (the ice maiden, who has ironically written a romantic bestseller), join a luxury honeymoon cruise in the Caribbean where Britt is the guest lecturer. Also on board are recently widowed Leo, still reeling from the discovery of his wife’s betrayal just before her death, and Steve, a ship’s officer who’s soon looking for more than a holiday romance with Mia. Can Steve replace Alejo and is there any chance that Britt and Leo can see that they really should get together?

non brain taxing story

Where does The Perfect Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

this book is probably my least favourite story

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

good to learn what happens to the characters at the end of the story

What didn’t you like about Caroline Lennon’s performance?

awful. all the characters had the same Irish accent and I could not define sometimes who was talking! even on a large cruise ship everyone was Irish!

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Nah, no emotion

Any additional comments?

This is the second Sheila O'Flanagan book I have downloaded I do not think I will buy any more

Line Up, Line Up! for the perfect man.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Perfect Man to be better than the print version?

Good story and well read. I listen to Audible whilst quilting, so I can keep up with my reading whilst doing something else, so probably won't have had time to read the book.

What about Caroline Lennon’s performance did you like?

I like her performance, and I find if a reader doesn't jar with your hearing you just accept that this is how the book should be and it flows lovely.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When certain events unfold you can empathize with the character and understand what makes them the person they are.

Too predictable

story was far to easy to guess. Did not hold your attention even for a beach read. Would not bother with another from this author. Sorry.

Reasonable story but very long and drawn out

This story took ages to get going and then seemed to run out of steam just when things began to get interesting between the main characters.

A great story!

I wasn't sure initially as this story didn't capture me immediately however I continued and quickly couldn't stop listening. So glad I did because I really enjoyed the overall story and will re listen again soon to appreciate the beginning. Definitely recommend.

Hard going

I’ve just got into listening to Sheila and I’ve really enjoyed them. But this book is hard going, so much so that I’ve stopped listening to it. I just can’t latch on to the caricatures. I’ve started the book a couple of times to make sure, but sadly not for me.
