Length: 11H and 18M
In This Heart of Mine, you met Kevin Tucker. Now meet Kevin's shark of an agent...and Annabelle Granger, the girl least likely to succeed.Annabelle is tired of being the lone failure in a family of overachievers. She's endured dead-end jobs and a broken engagement. But that's going to change now that she's taken over her late grandmother's matchmaking business. All Annabelle has to do is land the Windy City's hottest bachelor as her client, and she'll be the most sought-after matchmaker in town.
With his money-green eyes and calculated charm, Heath Champion is the best sports agent in the country. He's wealthy, driven, and gorgeous, so why does he need a matchmaker, especially a red-haired screw-up like Annabelle Granger? True, she's entertaining, and she does have a certain quirky appeal. But Heath is searching for the ultimate symbol of his success: the perfect wife. And to make an extraordinary match, he needs an extraordinary matchmaker, right?
If Annabelle isn't careful, she just might find herself going heart-to-heart with the toughest negotiator in town, a man who's beginning to ask himself...exactly how perfect does perfect have to be?
This is another winner from my favorite duo: Susan E. Phillips & Anna Fields, if you have listened to any of Susan’s books before, you will love this one, if you are new to romance audio books; this is great way to get started.
Anna is just a terrific narrator, she really gets the characters, giving them the right tone and the right attitude that it turns it into such a entertaining experience.
I only give four hearts to the printed version of the book, but I definitely give five hearts for listening experience.

Wonderful example of Susan Elizabeth Phillips' talent. Characters that you care about and ones that you'd like to meet. Heath Champion's hunt for a wife leads him to matchmaker Annabelle Granger. At first these two seems destined to be adversaries but just stick around for the sparks. Secondary characters provide a great additional love story. One of SEP's trademarks is re-acquainting us with characters we've met before. Phoebe, Dan, Molly and Kevin again charm the pages. A great story read by the incredible Anna Fields.

This book is another fine example of the author's ability to create characters you quickly care about and a story line that is fast moving and unpredictable (despite a predictable ending). In a manner very much along the lines of "Ain't She Sweet", it is a delightful romp that would be fictional fluff except for the warmth of the humanity that comes forth from all the characters and the depth of character development shown by the majority of them. Pippi is a special delight, made so by the incomparable Anna Fields who does another remarkable narration. This book is a lot of fun and well worth reading on all fronts.
