Summary

They're the only two single ladies on the lesbian love boat. Can opposites attract?

Jeanie Brooks is a small town history teacher who sometimes looks before she leaps, but when she books a last minute river cruise for lesbian singles, she knows she'll have no regrets. Two weeks of beautiful women and glorious adventure against the backdrop of Europe's most famous cities - what more could she want? 

Eleanor Fielding is an actuarial accountant from Manhattan, and an expert at assessing risk from every angle. Analytical and reserved, the only thing worse than spending the summer floating around with a gaggle of desperate single women is the prospect of her sister nagging her for all eternity if she refuses to go. 

But thanks to a ticketing error, Jeanie and Eleanor unexpectedly find themselves the only two eligible women on the Danube. What starts as an awkward alliance to salvage some enjoyment from the trip soon transforms into something more. When it comes to love, can this odd-couple learn to dance to the same rhythm?

Lovely and sweet

Sweet romance along the Danube. I really enjoyed the characters and how they completed each other. The narrator did a great job.

Sweet and fluffy!

NOTE: I won a download of this audiobook in a drawing, but I would likely have read the e-book anyway at some point.

First, the good stuff: I loved the adorkable leads, and was rooting for them every step of the way! This is a genuinely sweet, fun love story with about as little angst as it's possible to have between two humans and still have a story. :) I grew increasingly amused as the "coincidences" piled up and guided them down the road to love despite their best efforts... and I also appreciated when the end twisted and put the resolution squarely back into the characters' hands.

The author still has bit of a tendency to over-explain things that could be left implied, but less so than in her previous title I reviewed (Holme for the Holidays, which was also still cute), and the reader is not my favorite (but I'm very picky when it comes to performance, so I'm probably not the best judge), but overall I'm glad I listened to it. Enjoy!

Cute Love Story!!

Stephanie Murphy does s nice job narrating this story. Waltzing the Danube is an entertaining story about two women on a river cruise for single lesbians-or rather was supposed to be a river cruise for single lesbians. Due to a misunderstanding, they both booked the wrong week and find themselves the only lesbians on board. Hilarity ensues as the main characters are confronted with goofy situations that only MacLeod could dream up. You always know her main characters are going to fall in love, you just don’t know how crazy the ride will be getting there!

Cute book

Like the premise of the book and thought it was very cute. my only thought would be the narrator. I live Stephanie's voice and she reads well but I could not tell the characters apart. They sounded the same, otherwise I really enjoy the narrator.

Nice book

I liked listening to this book. The characters were very nice and they complemented each other very well. I specially liked El with her rational mind and OCD quirks.
The narrator did a great job.
I recommend the book as a light read that puts you in the travel mood 😀.

I liked it!

The story was sweet and the writing and narration were both good. I liked the characters and the circumstances didn't feel forced or unnatural. A pleasant listening experience!
