    DRIVING IN NEUTRAL was a great little read and had me laughing out loud onthan one occasion The bridezilla whose wedding was central to the story was something to behold although I probably would have walked out and left her rather than pampering to her bad behaviour Olivia was either demented or a saint for putting up with her It did take me a while to settle into the stories as there were a few characters that all seemed to be introduced at once after the elevator scene, and it too DRIVING IN NEUTRAL was a great little read and had me laughing out loud onthan one occasion The bridezilla whose wedding was central to the story was something to behold although I probably would have walked out and left her rather than pampering to her bad behaviour Olivia was either demented or a saint for putting up with her It did take me a while to settle into the stories as there were a few characters that all seemed to be introduced at once after the elevator scene, and it took me a while to work out which characters I should be concentrating on It also verged onto farcical rather than funny once or twice which again had me wanting to slap the characters concerned the two bridesmaids come to mind here The romance between Emerson and Olivia was very gradual and I liked that they weren t in bed with each other from page one the kiss in the elevator doesn t count as that was medicinal I also liked the conflict that needed to be overcome, although I felt that what Olivia did to Emerson was very wicked, and was a little mollified to see that she was remorseful for her action still she should not have done that, it was spiteful and cruel, and actually let the story down for me that she even did it Of course you ll have to read the book to find out what I am referring to and judge for yourself in fact pour yourself a glass of bubbly and settle in for a wonderful wedding weekend with some really quirky characters and some serious life issue lessons learned Overall I recommend DRIVING IN NEUTRAL as a perfect weekend read 3 stars Above average Was very readable and I really liked it but was easily able to put it down and walk away for a while With thanks to Escape Publishing and the author via Netgalley for my copy to read and review.

    Years ago and the fact that I can write years ago and mean years shows how much I appreciate Sandra s older heroines and heroes , I used to watch classic movies on Sunday afternoon Cary Grant being smooth, Katherine Hepburn being cool, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers making me dream Good memories Driving in Neutral reminded me of those old movies not because it s set in the old days, but because it has an underlying level of sophistication that is never in your face The sense of farc Years ago and the fact that I can write years ago and mean years shows how much I appreciate Sandra s older heroines and heroes , I used to watch classic movies on Sunday afternoon Cary Grant being smooth, Katherine Hepburn being cool, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers making me dream Good memories Driving in Neutral reminded me of those old movies not because it s set in the old days, but because it has an underlying level of sophistication that is never in your face The sense of farce balances the serious issues of risking your heart, of changing your life.Sandra Antonelli is just as funny in real life I chat with her on Twitter and I ve met her at a Romance Writers of Australia conference as a fellow Escape Publishing author Driving in Neutral is a great romance because it s not about people being extraordinary It s about them trying to get on with their lives, being humorous about their struggles and being there for their friends And at the very end of the book no spoilers there s a character I absolutely fell in love with.A wonderful, warm Sunday afternoon entertainment

    I started reading Driving in Neutral with a to do list that spanned 2 a4 pages telling myself I d read a chapter then get back to my work Do you think that happened Nope Once I started there was no way to put this one down and I must confess to devouring the entire book in one sitting thanks Sandra As always with Sandra s writing it s fun, flirty and sassy much the same as the central character, Olivia Fun and refreshing to read and I highly recommend reading Driving in Neutral

    DNF The head hopping was bad enough new perspective every three paragraphs , but when I hit the poorly rendered dialect I had to stop A word on dialect First, don t But if you have to, it can t be I one sentence and Ah the next You can t have doing and weddin in the same paragraph I m sad because I really liked the older characters and snappy dialogue, but this book is a craft trainwreck.

    A hero and heroine over 40 I m in I like that the relationship between them developed, but while I could see how he would fall in love with her, the feeling I got was that she was only attracted to him physically The story was cleverly written, and the MCs fleshed out There was a couple of things I didn t quite understand though, such as the accent of the heroine s best friend the bride to be.And why, oh why, was the reader left to imagine what the ending would be like Is this not a romanc A hero and heroine over 40 I m in I like that the relationship between them developed, but while I could see how he would fall in love with her, the feeling I got was that she was only attracted to him physically The story was cleverly written, and the MCs fleshed out There was a couple of things I didn t quite understand though, such as the accent of the heroine s best friend the bride to be.And why, oh why, was the reader left to imagine what the ending would be like Is this not a romance Where is the HEA HFN then

    I didn t mind this book although I did get a bit lost at times with who s POV I was reading Seemed to waffle on in some places but had me laughing out loud in others The ending was disappointing and felt unresolved.
