Kurzbeschreibung

23. August 2011
When twenty-nine-year-old Lola Watson unexpectedly inherits a rambling house in the suburbs, she thinks her life just couldn’t be more perfect—until her new neighbors make her their “project,” a heartbroken high school friend crashes indefinitely at her house, and her younger sister announces she’s getting married, on Lola’s thirtieth birthday. Suddenly Lola’s not so keen on her newfound domestic bliss. But when she meets handsome, mysterious Ryan Moriarty, Lola dares to hope she’s found the perfect guy to one-up her sister and add a little spice back into her life.

Karen McQuestion deftly blends romance and comedy in this delightful romp where love is discovered in the most unexpected of places.

2.0 von 5 Sternen lauter Loser 6. März 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Irgendwie ist diese Geschichte zu bemüht, da ist die unsichere Heldin, sie hat eine dominante Schwester.
Der Held ist ein "jolly good fellow", der es allen recht machen möchte und an das gute glaubt, auch wenn die Bosheit mit Händen zu greifen ist. Die Freundin im sicheren Ehehafen hat gut reden und der Blender rundet das Bild ab.
Diese Nachbarschaft, die alles sieht und noch mehr weiss, kann es so nur in USA geben.
Na ja irgendwie zu bemüht

3.0 von 5 Sternen All the Right Elements, but Never Comes Together 8. Januar 2010
Von Lauren Sophie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
"Easily Amused" has all the basic ingredeints of a good chick lit/light romance hybrid: the likeable single woman who's ready to meet someone special; two men (sortof) vying for her affection; a caring best friend; some nosey neighbors; and a troublemaking little sister. The writing is also smooth and engaging, and there are some good lines, although I'm not in agreement with those who thought this book was uproarious. It's cute, but some of the humor is cliched, and it's more subtle than hysterical.

The problem for me was poor plotting. The first third of the book meanders from scene to scene, with no clear sense of the actual story. It's fun at first--the excerpt does leave one wanting more. But after several more pages, I couldn't help but think: "Is there a point to any of this?" We meet Lola (yes, the requisite Barry Manilow reference does happen), who has an interesting sounding job and annoying co-workers, but that part of the story goes nowhere. Then we have her best female friend, Piper, who's annoying Lola with her obsession with her baby boy, but that never really goes anywhere, either. Finally, we have Hubert, her best male friend, who's devastated over being dumped by his hateful sounding girlfriend, Kelly. He's mopey and pathetic in the beginning, and essentially moves in with Lola. From there, the story morphs into a pseudo triangle with Ryan, Lola's mysterious neighbor, on one side, and Hubert, who shifts from heartbreak over Kelly to wanting to marry Lola in a totally unbelievable instant.

In fact, considering where the novel ends up, I don't understand why the author crafted the first part of the story the way she did. There's no sexual tension, or sense that Hubert has yearned for Kelly (although we're told later he did) so the romantic twist and resolution is ultimately unsatisfying. Plus, Ryan and Lola's sister (so irritating I blocked out her name) are caricatures rather than fleshed out characters--they never felt real to me. As for the neighbors, I simply can't agree with those who found them to be like people they know. I can't agree because I never felt like the author developed these characters at all. They morph together into a united force of buttinskies with no carved out personalities of their own. Lots of lost potential there.

If you're thinking about ordering this book, I do think it's a good price, and it is well written, but imo, the story and pacing needed more work. It read like a first draft to me in terms of plotting, even with the decent prose.

Grade: C

5.0 von 5 Sternen Loveable characters, fun and entertaining read 26. November 2010
Von Angeli - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This was my first time reading anything by Karen McQuestion and to my surprise, I loved her writing! I just bought a Kindle and was looking for books to buy when I ran across this great find. I saw that other readers had rated this book high and for a great price, this book was a steal! The characters were loveable and the book was so entertaining that I could hardly put it down. Parts of the book even made me giggle! It was a quick read which I love. I can't wait to read more of McQuestion's work. I can easily see her being one of my favorite authors.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Couldn't wait to finish it 15. Januar 2011
Von E. Schwarz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I couldn't wait to be done with this book because the heroine is so awful. She is whiny, complains, makes really bad decisions, is selfish, etc. The best friend is well written and I could kind of like the hero. But this was not a fun book.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Really have to stop ordering these cheap books! 8. März 2011
Von Bostonmama - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
You get what you pay for. I have now read and hated three books priced below $3 and not one was worth the money. Here we have Lola, yet another shallow single career woman who cannot find a man but wait! He's been in her life all along! Now there's a twist the reader didn't see coming! Oh, and toss in the stock Evil Sister and Shallow Handsome Guy and Quirky But Lovable Neighbors and you have any TV sitcom you have ever watched. I agree with Twin Mom's review. Read hers for a good critique. Time for me to get back to true writers like Alison Weir and Ruth Rendell, to name just two whose writing always keeps me up late. On a kinder note, I do feel for the writer. I'm sure she cared about Lola and Hubert; she just didn't take the time to get to know them very well or to make them interesting enough for her readers. Not this reader, anyway.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Engaging and funny 16. Januar 2008
Von Felicity - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This is an engaging, inviting excerpt and a wonderful cliff-hanger. Lola is a first-rate heroine, self-deprecating and funny but grounded in real life. Her neighbors made me laugh--who hasn't suffered from being scrutinized like this?--and I loved her interactions with her friend Piper. Along the way mysteries are thrown in: why did Lola's great-aunt leave her a house? And how come Hubert visits Piper but can never make time for Lola? But the best is yet to come: tension builds as Lola arrives home to find an intruder in her house. Who can it be? This is smart, savvy writing from Karen McQuestion. I'd love to read on.
