I love SEP's books and even though this is not one of her best I was very much looking forward to enjoying the audio version on my long commute.
For the most past it was very good, but the narrator's English accent was excruciating at times. It is a shame as I have very much enjoyed listening to Kate Flemming in all other aspects of the audiobook. It was as if the only way she could make the hero sound British was to portray him as a caricature of an aging theatrical 'luvee'. Rather than sounding suave and sophisticated, he often sounded quite camp. I can't vouch for the authenticity of her Mississippi accent.
Apart from the dire dialect it was a very enjoyable listen.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book although I wasn't too keen on the narration. Great story and characters.
The only thing wrong with Susan Elizabeth Phillips' books is that they end. I normally don't even care for romance titles - but SEP writes stories that are so entertaining and so uplifting, there aren't enough of them. Ain't She Sweet is no exception - the characters, their relationships - it's all there. This isn't any "in-depth" fiction - it's just good old fashion entertainment that leaves you feeling great! Of course, Kate Flemming (A/K/A Anna Fields) makes it all come together. I wish she could read every audio book!

I usually don't like books if I don't like the heroine. However, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed reading about this awful, bad, bad girl Sugar Beth. She did terrible things to others when she was young. She tortured Winnie with humiliation and later dumped her boyfriend Ryan. She then ruined her own life with poor choices. But things changed. I loved the fighting, bickering relationship with Colin.
I first read the paperback in 2007 and gave this 4 stars. But I changed the stars to 5 after listening to the audiobook. The narrator Kate Fleming makes it better than I could imagine. Her interpretations are wonderful. Fantastic.
