About book: This is how it starts off: The hero comes to heroine's place with his big dog who makes a mess. Her dog jumps at the man's throat and the heroine verbally attacks the poor man, threatening him with a gun because his dog ripped up her dog's toy?!!?!?!?!? Ummmm ok ?! Starts off DEMENTED! Another thing - i am actually listening to the AudioBook > the narrator sounds like she has a speech impediment (i'm really sorry and no offence meant-i've listened to her before and she did NOT sound like this!!!) This was just ridiculous > every single "ir" and "er" is pronounced as "oy" > so "first" is "foyst", "birth" is "boyth" , "perfect" is "poyfect", etc.... I keep thinking this is done on purpose as a joke, but this is not even true to the southern accent ... IT KEPT ANNOYING ME THE WHOLE TIME (first time this ever happened)... :((( Ok, more than half of book in now... Why is he mugged and does not call anyone for 2 weeks?! He can't even use the telephone himself, the nurse has to make calls for him, but he won't even let her tell people what happened and where he is?! And his stupid friend going to pick up Zip > who just steals someone else's dog from their back yard?! "oh there is two of them, well i'll just take you both home" > what?!?!So i'm just gonna keep on rambling... What's with the old women coming to cook for Josie/Kitty's catering for free? Why would anyone do this?! And why was Josie thinking that this was such a great idea (not pay for another cook, but get some old ladies to work for free)? Sounds ridiculous, esecially since one of the ladies is PAYING Josie to organize/cater the Mardi Gras party for her... "Where did you get that dress? Taiwan?!" >> WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?! That would be deserving of a kick in my book!"Russle up some food, woman, i'm starving!" >>> YOU ARE 3 HOURS LATE FOR A DATE AND NOW INSTEAD OF TAKING HER OUT, YOU ARE DEMANDING SHE COOK YOU FOOD?!?!?!?!?! What a freakin' gentleman.... ! Josie talking to her dead mom started off as an interesting touch in the book, but then i think it just took over everything else. From a quirky heroine, Josie transforms into a nut-job! She constantly talks to her dead mom and it just kept creeping me out!!! They are getting married after 2 dates?!?!?! A very unbelievable relationship, without any chemistry or foundations... I could not see Paul and Josie together at all... Very little time was spent on describing their relationship! There were more pages spent on Josie talking to her mother's ghost than her future husband!!! Estranged niece with a deaf kid?! Bad touch... Really not appropriate for this silly book... Making light of every issue is just not ok, no matter how stupid the book is, it's not ok to make it seem like money fixes everyone's problems... some things are just inappropriate... And I just loved how this "niece" (after all these years of not caring or contacting her family) picks up and packs up her kid in literally under 10 minutes when she;s told that they will be taken care of financially!!!! Finally his bi*ch mother has the audacity to say "I have never stopped loving you , son, but that love was locked up in my heart, hidden away, believing that someday when I was ready I could open it up and you would come running to me with open arms" >> when you are ready to love your kid?!?!?! WHEN YOU ARE READY?!?!?!?!?Overall impression: "Stupid book that all of a sudden wanted to be serious, by introducing emotional issues, death of parents, not being able to let go of deceased family members, family estrangement, hearing impairment, poverty, betrayal... etc"

Listen To Your HeartFern MichaelsContempory Romnace214 pagescopyright: 2000isbn: 1-57566-572-7With her parents gone, her twin sister, Kitty, about to be married, and no hint of Mr. Right on the horizon, Josie Dupre is lonesome. Luckily, she has her booming New Orleans catering business, and her fluffy white dog, Rosie, to keep her company. Then, with all the subtlety of Bourbon Street at Mardi Gras, a jumbo-sized Boxer destroys Josie's flowering windowboxes, and in the process, brazenly captures petite Rosie's undying devotion. Now that Rosie and the aptly named Zip are an item, Josie finds herself an unwilling chaperone - and doing her best to avoid Zip's owner, the irritatingly appealing Paul Brouillette.Anyone can see that the wealthy, sexy Paul is little more than a love 'em and leave 'em Cajun playboy. He's all for l'amour, but Josie has no intention of falling for him. Still, ever since Paul came into her life, strange things have been happening. She hears music that isn't there. Then she smells her mother's favorite cologne in an empty room. Maybe her mom's trying to send her a message. Something about finding love where you least expect it . . . And listening to your heart.
