You guys, this book had me dying laughing! I mean all of her excuses to try to get out of going out of town with her boss? Including her made up boyfriend, Santana. And then, oh my gosh, Holly’s advent calendar! Not countdown to dick-mas as her sisters called it, but soon she was calling it. Plus the little snippet about if there was room at the Vagina Inn? I was laughing so hard! I have to say before I go any further, this was my favorite of all the stories, and I was a little disappointed we didn’t get as much with Holly in the other two stories, although it makes sense since they were all taking place pretty much over the same few weeks, and Holly was in Nuremberg with Nick for a week of that time.
I have to say I liked the name of the character in this book the best, Ginger Spice. We got a tiny bit of a glimpse of this story in the first book. While this story I didn’t love as much as the first one, this is the story that convinced me to reach out and purchase the anthology with all three stories from the author. You see, there are many different baked goods discussed in this story, I mean it is about a baking contest. And I wanted to have the recipes! When I reached out to the author about it, she said that I needed the actual written copy, because obviously they won’t put recipes in an audiobook. Yeah, yeah, I could have just purchased the ebook, but no, I want a physical copy if I’m going to buy a book for recipes. The other thing I loved about Ginger, besides the yummy sounding baked goods, was her adorable way of cursing. I tend to do that a lot, not that I never use the actual bad words, but for the longest time I didn’t, and I still don’t feel right using that kind of language in front of people, I’m guessing it’s my education career.
Okay, I also liked Noel’s story, she had some great quotes that totally are my kind of quotes. The being alone for a long time, being the oldest, etc. It was fun getting to hear a little bit about the other sisters, just like the second book, we got more of just Noel and Ginger, because as I mentioned, Holly was out of the country. The one night stand was perfect. Even though Noel wasn’t quite sure about Teddy, I was pretty sure of who he was when she met him. But I didn’t see the name thing the way it turned out. I also loved that the elderly lady Noel was trying to set up was kind of playing her. The limited edition coupon bit was hilarious!
Overall, all three books were hilarious, you can see even though I might not have given them all 5 stars, the other two were 4.5.
