  • Ian
    JEH is like a thinking man's (woman's) SEP.I like SEP, I mean you don't read a dozen books by an author you don't like. But she also drives me insane. So often she promises great a Ducati 959 PanigaleBut you end up with a 1951 Vespa. But Goody Two Shoes is great. It's like all the best parts of a SEP book with none of the things that drive me insane. A fun, light and entertaining read.

    I just loved it.(I'll read other reviews and link the one that satisfies my thoughts)I'll just say that reading about Caroline in Lingerie wars I was sure she was the kind of h I love and I wasn't mistaken. I loved everything about her, even her gray suits.Josh surprised me, how laid back he was about almost everything but Caroline, if it was about her then he was intense.Betty made small appearances but still managed to remind me she was my favo...

    This is a highly underrated book. Cute resistant heroine and a patient and yummy hero. And rib tickling side characters. This one has all the ingredients for a fantastic read. I seriously recommend this book to all of you who are reading my review. You’re going to have enjoyable time reading it.

    ★★★★★Goody Two Shoes(Invertary, Book 2) by Janet Elizabeth HensonI was given this book in exchange for my honest opinion. with Invertary. I thought Lingerie Wars was funny and loved it, so I was very excited for book 2. It did not disappoint. I just could not stop laughing. Ms. Janet's writing style. I don't generally read romantic comedies, but her books are hilarious. And Josh... I haven't had any champagne tonight, lol. Reading O...

    3.5 starsIt was utterly ridiculous, but fun, and really sweet.

    I'm quickly becoming a big fan of Janet Elizabeth Henderson. I discovered her great writing when I bought a book suggested by a Goodreads ad: Lingerie Wars. Lingerie Wars is hilarious, and if you have yet to read it, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy. I liked Lingerie Wars only a hair more than Goody Two Shoes, but Goody Two Shoes is a great book in its own right. GTS is about Caroline, a Scottish control freak librarian who thinks she is do...

    3 stars. I enjoyed it. Had a few chuckles.This is book 2 in the series. It wasn’t as good as book 1 “Lingerie Wars” but I still liked it. What I like about the author is fun and different personalities which provide natural humor and conflict as they interact.Toward the end I was a little tired of Caroline putting herself down and thinking she wasn’t good enough for him. But I was still ok with the story.Josh was a famous singer and didn...

    1.5? Josh believes in commitment over romance so when he decides to get married, he asks his friend to arrange one for him and ends up proposing to the first woman he meets, a Scottish woman who feels very protective over the castle he just bought in her town. This was so not my book. I really truly genuinely disliked Josh deeply - for someone who was called so laidback, he was far more of a control freak than Caroline - he would call her what he...

    WARNING:Do NOT read this book in public. People will think you are crazy. 5+++ As soon as I finish this book I am moving to Invertary,Scotland. Thats how much I love this book. Janet Elizabeth Henderson just became my favourite author. I loved Josh, Caroline, Betty, the domino boys, Andrew, Helen and oh just about everyone and everything in this book. And it was so hilarious, I was rolling on the floor with laughter. I am kicking myself right now...

    Taken from Goodreads: Take one American singer who doesn’t believe in falling in love add a Scottish librarian who has given up on ever falling in love…Cute, just cute as can be. Read it in one day. Love the series.
  • Jennifer Dale
    I personally didn't finish the book. I skimmed what I read and finally just became uninterested. The story had a great idea, liked all the characters but Caroline got on my nerves. I see that the author wanted Caroline's character to be strong will and controled but to me Caroline was all that plus just plain boring and stiff. Her character drown a possibly good story.The synopsis pretty much tells the story. Seems some readers like it but to me,...

    This book is excellent, I think it's even better than the first one.It is so funny, I laughed and laughed.Yet underneath all the humour is some serious things, Caroline's need to control comes romance a sad experience in her childhood.The couple from book one turn up as well as Betty and lots of others from the village.There are lots of British references which you may find funnier if you have experienced small minded village life.

    Bleh. I was hoping for a cute arranged marriage rom com, and I got... I don't know, something else. Two people who didn't seem to like each other? A man who talks about how they need to compromise, but then just does whatever he wants anyway until she agrees with him? A woman who repeatedly sneaks out of the house to get away from him until she's suddenly in love with him? But not before he steals her bedroom door so she can't lock him out of her...

    I was enjoying this for quite a bit... I thought it was cute and quirky and fun...until it started getting NOT. I felt like she was browbeaten the entire time. "Oh hey, the media doesn't like what you wear so as your 'friends' we want to change you" and then he handcuffs her to the bed against her will and offers her a bucket to relieve herself, etc... and then she magically loves him? Do women really appreciate being told they don't know what th...

    Un pochino meno carino di Lingerie wars, e con premesse sinceramente assurde, ma molto divertente da leggere.Rientra a pieno nei racconti favolistici, con personaggi che solo nella Terra di Altrove che è questa Scozia immaginaria possono esistere, ma che vorresti tanto esistessero davvero. O forse no. Son tutti impiccioni e rompiscatole. Adorabilmente rompiscatole, ma sempre rompiscatole.Mi sono incartata, vero?Vabbè, non importa tanto in Itali...

    Well worth the wait, it was a pleasure to be back in the world of Invertary and rub shoulders with the colourful characters that live there. It took me a little bit longer to warm up to our hero, Josh (mainly, I think because I was still obsessed with Lake from Lingerie Wars, Book 1) but once I did, like our heroine, Caroline, I was a goner. Fun and impulsive Josh may be, but when he is serious about something, does he ever turn it on!A great lig...
  • Helen Manning
    Josh is an American music star sick of hookups and fake women. He wants an old fashioned girl so he buys a castle in Invertary Scotland and pursues matrimonial bliss (arranged style) with Caroline; the tightly wound librarian who is a Grace Kelley look-a-like. Many laughs and many old friends from Invertary return to confuse, confound and complicate the pursuit of matrimony. Caroline is an everywoman full of quirks and the desire to control EVERY...

    This one has the most instant of all the insta-love stories I've ever read. But I don't care. We're reading fiction, folks.This gets 4 stars, a high rating for me, because it was a nice blend of funny and loving, with a good dose of zaniness. I loved the supporting characters; they all loved the heroine despite her rigid self. Or maybe because of it. I always enjoy reading about characters who love others no matter what.A relaxing read full of lo...

    Oh. My. God. Where do I start?!Let's start with the stupid setup: we have Josh McInnes - god of all men, apparently - who wanted to get married, so that he could have babies, etc, etc, etc. One look at Caroline, and he was all for proposing his marriage arrangement with her.Then, we have this GOD OF A MAN railroading her every, single wish. Forget talking with her, and communicating. Nope. Communication between the both of them progressed thus: C...

    Delightfully Light Romantic Comedy!This was a very quick, but entertaining read!. I loved the premise: busy American celebrity, Josh, is disillusioned with the groupies , one-night stands, and women fawning over him, his money and his fame. He is ready to settle down and have kids, but not with any of the women he has been dating. He buys a castle in Scotland for use as a sound studio and vacation home. Then he demands his agent, Mitch, search ou...

    For some reason I thought this would be a good book to end my novel abstinence, not gonna lie, I picked this one solely because of the shoes on the cover.I decided to put everything I didn't like about this book into the "it's not you, it's me" box in my brain and give it a extra star, the book had no typos that I can remember the narrative was fluid, it had an actual plot that kept me interested and characters that developed without becoming com...

    I am sure we all have read books with intense plots and strong characters, that end-up leaving us with literary satiation, but emotionally drained. Well this is not that book, but this is the one you need to pick-up after reading that book. Goody Two Shoes is a light, humorous and (my favourite adjective) “toe-curling” chic-lit, that is based out of the romantic highlands of Scotland. Rich, handsome & Grammy-winner Josh wants an arranged marr...
  • Sue Moore
    Romance, Love, Solid Characters, Great Story Lines!!I would recommend this highly because the characters were so real, able to change, able to love, and able to reach out to each other. Marriage should be a deep and abiding love with a healthy sex life that never truly wanes as long as both are willing to reach out and continually rejuvinate. Also, whoever proofed this for spelling and grammatical errors? A job well done, for sure. I have not see...

    Amusing freebie. Famous singer wants his friend and manager to 'arrange' a woman for him to marry. Despite his romantic songs, Josh doesn't believe in love or romance, but at 35, he wants to get married, and start a family. When control-freak Caroline shows up to discuss her favourite castle with it's new owner (Josh) she wasn't quite expecting the proposal she was given.I liked Josh, and his ability to see past Caroline's calm and controlled ext...
