    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...

    ★★★★★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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...
  • Lirajean
    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...

    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...
  • Barbara Hackel
    This is a predictable but fun book about an arranged marriage between a strong willed Scottish woman and an American singing sensation. He just happens to buy a castle in her home town that she wants restored. He just happened to decide he wants a wife and children and the whole deal. An arranged marriage of respect and friendship that will blossom into more over the years. She wants marriage and children and to restore that castle. He asks. Ever...
  • Samantha Zee
    I was kinda in a reading funk and read this to reset. Glad I did! It's a sweet story of a high strung, no nonsense Scottish librarian who agrees to marry a famous American singer who is looking for a no-romance, arranged marriage (I know, I know, romance book plots). There's a side love story between the singer's aging parents and a super obvious "mystery" but overall, this was a really cute book. I found myself legitimately laughing out loud at ...
  • Chessela Helm
    More fun in Scotland when a laid back overgrown teenaged American singer decides he wants a no fuss contract marriage with the most controlling woman in town. Their personalities drive each other crazy in a cute way, and they learn to bring out the best in each other. I liked this one even better than Lingerie Wars (I prefer a goofy hero to a silent one). The town of Invertary is its own character, and it's still wild. All of the characters are u...

    Better base story than the first book, but...I liked Betty from the first book better than the Domino Guys in this book. I was glad she still made appearances. This one had kinda stereotypical leads too, but the guy was a little softer and the gal was a little harder and more awkward. I liked the story, but saw the plot 'twists' coming a mile away. The comedy was still fantastic and made me laugh. The Domino Guys were funny and thrown into funny ...
  • Kathy Barr
    Great fun!Charming twist on a Rom com. There was a bit of repetitive winks, licking of lips, eyes growing dark with desire ... But many of the characters were delightful. Fun small town in Scotland, a bossy Scottish lass and many townies who respect and fear her and a rock star that doesn't believe in romantic love.
  • Stephanie Bolen
    You need this book in your lifeIt wasn't as fun as the first one, but it got me. The What Women Want speech had me rolling so hard my belly hurt. I liked Josh better than I did Lake, but I liked Kristy better than I did Caroline. But you need to read both books they are awesome.
  • Vicci
    Brilliant!Whilst this does push the boundaries of believability, this is a hilarious, well written book. Loved all of the characters, especially Andrew, and am looking forward to reading more from this author.
  • Velva Thomason
    Laugh out loudFirst time reading this author. Anytime a book makes you laugh out loud it's gotta be a good one. Looking forward to reading more by Janet Elizabeth Henderson.

    I want to live in this town. The cast is quirky and adorable and made me laugh out loud multiple times.
  • gloria marquardt
    A keeper.Highly entertaining. I laughed ask the way through. A modern day " Taming of the Shrew". I will happily recommend this book.
  • Reforming
    Delightful contemporary celebrity romance. I'm sad more of Henderson's books are not available at my sources.
