OK, so it was a bit light & fluffy, but it's actually not a bad listen.
Josie Flynn is about to divorce her no-good-rat of a husband, Damien. She's heading out to New York to attend her cousin's wedding. Josie's less than impressed with her cousin's intended and asks all the pertinant questions - none of which make Martha change her mind about the rightness of Jack. Once it's all a bit too late, things change - as you might expect. Josie is also having relationship issues of her own, with her soon-to-be ex-husband chasing after her, swooning over the Best Man and the slightly inept journalist she met on the plane over.
Mildly diverting, with some moments of genuine hilarity. ( )

I usually do not do audio books, but made an exception for the trip to VT. Although classified as a romance, this book was a comedy of errors - like Shakespear's "Midsummer Nights Dream." Josie is coming to the US to be in her cousin's wedding. She meets Matt, a rock journalist, on the airplane and they click. Meanwhile, other characters are introduced that fall in love with the wrong people. Craziness abounds. It is fast paced and interesting - so interesting that we were disappointed to have to stop driving! This is more fun than a chick flick or an actual film and would appeal to both men and women. ( )

Eh. It wasn't funny, really, and some of it was frankly ridiculous. I just wanted to finish it, which is not a good sign. ( )
