Summary

From the best-selling author of The Chronicles of St Mary's. The Nothing Girl has grown up....
It's life as usual at Frogmorton Farm - which is to say that events have passed the merely eccentric and are now galloping headlong towards the completely bizarre.
Once again Jenny struggles to stay afloat in the stormy seas of matrimony with her husband, Russell Checkland, together with an unlikely mix of Patagonian Attack Chickens, Jack the Sad Donkey and Mrs Crisp's mysterious boyfriend. The old favourites are still around, of course. There's Marilyn the Omnivorous Donkey, Russell's ex-girlfriend Don't Call Me Franny and the neurotic Boxer, currently failing to deal with butterfly trauma.
So nothing much is new...except for the mysterious figure dogging Jenny's steps and who, if she didn't know better, she would swear was her sinister cousin Christopher, last seen being hurled from the house by her wayward husband. He couldn't possibly be stupid enough to come back and try again...could he?

From beginning to end, a brilliant audio book.

Good people, bad peoples, warmth, villainy, love, laughter and tears (happy ones!). Once again Jodi Taylor has produced an amazing story that I found hard not listen to constantly. The narration was the icing on the cake. I absolutely loved it. Will there be an “Everything Girl”? I hope so.

Patogonian attack chickens!!

Another emotional rollercoaster. Laugh out loud, hold my breath and shed tears of sorrow. Not a book to read in public!!
Perfectly read.
Love every minute.

Painfully uninteresting

I liked the first book in the series particularly because of how good the narrow is, but this book was just a poor repetition of everything that happened in the nothing girl. there was nothing fresh about it and the heroine's self pity and insecurities became unbearable after a point. The only redeeming quality was the flawless narration by Lucy Price-Lewis.

Loved book one; this one was good but...

Any additional comments?

I was so excited to see a sequel to The Nothing Girl. I loved that book so much and I wanted more of Frogmorton and Russell and Jenny. I even pre-ordered this listen so I wouldn't miss a thing.

The narration was some of the best I've ever listened to. Lucy Price-Lewis was exceptional. She gave us the kinetic nature of Russell, delivered Jenny's stutter without making her seem like a caricature, and still made us believe in talking golden donkeys.

I love that the story picked up after Russell and Jenny were married. The usual suspects were there and there were warm fuzzys all around.

Where I take exception with this listen was in the (SPOILERS) kidnap and subsequent escape. It was so extreme it bordered on slapstick. The conversation between Jenny and Thomas was just too ridiculous (yes, I know she was talking to a golden donkey, but still.) I rolled my eyes so many times during that sequence that I almost hurt myself. And that hospital scene. Why wouldn't they tell the cops the whole story????!!!!!

I have listened to quite a few Jodi Taylor books and I am a definite fan. I liked this book but it was the narration that saved this listen for me.
