    This is second in a series. I bounced off the first. I think I just got bored and never picked it up after the first bit. I didn't really feel that as a negative, even though Lake and Kirsty are prominent figures in this story. This was . . . okay. I loved some of the clashes between the two main characters. I liked the background that set them in opposition, at least initially. But I find that most of what I liked was the theory and that the act...

    It started of really well and then....As with most of the love stories I choose to read, it started off well. For the first 30% of the book, I was feeling 'wow, I just found the book I needed to read'... The good part:1. It was funny. 2. The chemistry between the leads was really well described. The casual man and the uptight lass made for a cute pair. They were growing fond of each other and then it drifted off. 3. The parents' story was funny, ...

    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 things....like 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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    One of my guiltiest pleasures is downloading free reads on my Nook. Even if it's something I wouldn't ordinarily read, if it's free, I figure, "What the heck--why not give it a try?" Usually, this ends up backfiring on me because I never learn. But every once in a while, I end up pleasantly surprised, and I'm happy to report that this is one of those instances!Let me say first that even though this book is the second in a series, it works well as...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    You know, I liked it! I did not know it was a 'romance' book but it was not chock block full of love scenes so it was tolerable!!! It was a quick, smart, humorous, fun read, just what I needed after the last couple of heavy books.Caroline is a rigid 31 yr old living in Scotland. Josh is an american music star who decides he needs to get married so he gets his manager, Mitch to start looking for a sensible wife he can have a mutual relationship wi...

    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.

    Just what I needed while sick with a cold. This was like a hot cup of chicken soup, it just warms your soul. Simply wonderful. Will look for more by this author.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
