An amusing, charming lesbian romance about finding unexpected love inside family expectations.
When Fiona Ng’s best friend, Michael, needs a pretend girlfriend to bring home for Christmas in Arkansas, Fiona girds her loins and steps up. Besides, how hard could one festive family weekend be, anyway? That’s before she meets the boisterous McElroy clan, with accents as thick as a homemade pie crust, and an endless supply of competitive siblings, including Lizzie, Michael’s beautiful younger sister.
Lizzie seems to be everywhere, with her intoxicating scent, wandering hands, lingering gaze, and that bright, echoing laugh. The more time Fiona spends in her orbit, she wonders how she can even concentrate let alone pull off a convincing fake relationship.

A romantic comedy
2.75 stars. In short, I didn't like it. I also think I'm done with romantic comedy Audiobooks.
What I did like though was the narrator Nicole Blessing, she did a really fine job especially with the accents.
So, why didn't I like it? First of all, I think all the characters were a blur, there were so many of them that I didn't feel that the mains had enough space to develop. And moreover, I didn't think the mains were particularly likeable. I think Fiona was very immature. And Lizzie? I just couldn't grasp her.
Second, I think I'm allergic to meddlesome family members and especially traditionnal ones as the McElroys.
And last but not least, I didn't think the book was particularly funny or amusing. To me it felt very much constructed. I maybe expected something completely different based on the other reviews. Sorry, I was just not my cup of tea...
