Summary

Shoe store owner Roger Hudson has a chip on his shoulder the size of Mount Rushmore. Hiring real estate agent Sally Bright, the most annoyingly positive woman ever, probably isn't the smartest move - but she's the best. Her constantly bubbly nature gets under Roger's skin, but there's an even bigger problem. She's also getting into his heart. And don't even get him started on her dynamite legs.
Roger doesn't fool Sally one bit. She knows his crotchety act is as fake as her best friend's Gucci bag. She's dealt with his type before, but selling his home is proving to be harder than she thought - especially since she's developing feelings for her handsome client. But just when things seem to be going in the right direction, Sally's secret could destroy everything she worked so hard for.

Uniquely written

Would you listen to Mr. Crotchety again? Why?

"This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast."

I read this, whilst listening to the audio book I would listen to this again, since I liked how this featured a more mature couple, yet despite this it wasn't boring at any point. I loved Maggie's enthusiasm and the voice (by the performer). I loved the messages: that it sometimes is better to speak your mind, to not lie as it will just catch up with you. Amongst others, of course.

Also, I liked how neither character was flawless, they each had their problems. Only too often, these problems are overlooked: thus, the characters seem superficial. For this novel, however that wasn't the case at all. The reading was brilliant, loved the voice changes, that is talent. In the same way, I liked the writing style it was sophisticated whilst still enjoyable. I also found it interesting to have been able to see the connection develop between Sally and Roger, the fact that it wasn't there immediately made it more authentic.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Mr. Crotchety?

Roger hated smudges on his windows...I'm kidding, what stuck with me was that Mr. Crotchety (or Roger Hudson, as he would want to be known) was able to forgive, for some that's quite an impossible feat. It was wonderful that even though he had already lost someone dear to him, yet that didn't stop him from moving on and giving others a chance.

What about Greg Tremblay’s performance did you like?

His voice was amazing, I'm sure he can do impressions of nearly everyone. It made me look forward to listening to the story. I have to say my favourite was his voice for Roger, and then for Maggie. I loved the Mouth, despite her annoying nature.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh, more times than I can count.

Any additional comments?



Thank you for having given me the opportunity. I recommend reading this if you haven't done so yet.

A Light-heated Feel Good Romance!

Rich Amooi's stories are always a pleasure and fun to listen too! Each plot is clean, sweet, funny, low on the angst, and doesn't leave the listener emotionally drained. I love how he always delivers those heart warming moments that will make you smile and leave you with a feel good feeling. Mr. Crotchety was a nice change of pace from the more serious romance stories I listen too, and I feel it deserves five stars.

Greg Tremblay's performance was awesome! He did an amazing job with the characters, and all the emotions! I don't cry….but I actually had tears in my eyes during the apology and confession of love scenes and it was Greg's performance that brought these touching moments to life. I hope to hear more audios narrated by him.

If you love a good clean fun story with humor and lots of kisses, then you don't want to pass up on this story! I will definitely be listening to another Rich Amooi story in the future.

WONDERFUL AND ROMANTIC!!!!

If you could sum up Mr. Crotchety in three words, what would they be?

FUNNY, BEAUTIFUL, ROMANTIC

What did you like best about this story?

Roger!! he was a tough cookie on the outside with a soft melty center...and his little dog crouton...he was adorable!!

What about Greg Tremblay’s performance did you like?

He was really good..I would listen to him again anytime!!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

All of it...but especially the ending!

Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

I will totally listen to more of this authors books..this was super fun! Roger is a widower...and has hardened himself to keep others away, Sally is a divorced lady with a good heart, and happy personality...She and Roger clash in the worst way, but are incredibly attracted to each other...When Mr Crotchety himself Roger finds out his neighbor is moving and selling to a very public celebrity he has to move asap...Sally ends up being his realtor...and romance ensues...the almost lose each other, but love always conquers all in book land..and I loved it!!!!!
