    sit back, giggle and go with the flow

    I am actually a little surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I expected something light hearted, but not a lot of depth … and I was only half right. While it’s a humorous read, Oaksmith manages to deliver a good amount of growth for Kylie as she learns what it truly means to be kind and help someone by giving them what they really need. The characters are what makes this book so great – from her mom who opened a B&B for nudists (without telling her), to the sexy sheriff who keeps finding her in the least flattering situations, to her best friend the gay hairdresser who embraces the cliché. Not to mention Margaret and her ugly mutt, who are the catalyst for Kylie becoming a better person. You’ll find at least one of them speaks to you and has you coming back for more. Well, and Kylie herself who just can’t keep out of trouble … I am also a bit surprised at how Kylie somehow manages to get herself into so many messes but it is a romantic comedy – just sit back, giggle and go with the flow :) (Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review)

    Hard to like leading lady. but worth a read!

    50 Acts of Kindness by Ellyn Oaksmith (Audio Edition) Narrated by Wendy Rich Stetson 4 Stars - Right off.. the heroine, Kylie, is a snobby woman. Wow! I was happy to see that as soon as she got “home” karma really did bite her in the bum. Throughout this story I was dumbfounded at how she treats people and yet so many of them take her crap! I was happy to see that Chet was NOT one of them. He stands up to her and it's about time someone does. I had a hard time respecting Kylie. Even at the end of the book she at least seemed to mature a bit and find out some stuff about herself and how to treat people, but at the same time still held a bit of the selfishness to her.. she kept saying “I can't believe he said that” when she, herself had acted the same way, not that long ago.. so I wished she would have made the connection “on the page” on how horrible she treated people as I am not sure if she actually understood how badly she behaved. The secondary characters were great. I really liked Margaret, she was a spunky old lady. I see her as basically an older version of Kylie. The voice Wendy used for her was perfect! The mother and her B&B was funny, the dog Bat, Marcus - Kylie’s friend, and of course Chet all helped to make it a good read. I had no expectations with this book, as I have never read or actually even heard of this author before. I found it funny in parts and I shook my head with a grin at Kylie’s antics a few times. The writing was good and the narration was also done well. I wish there was a bit more romance.. cause I am a total romance junkie.. but honestly this book kept me listening to see how it all worked out. Even if some of the times it was just to see what this crazy chick would do or say next! *I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
