  • Jacob Proffitt
    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 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...
  • Quirky Omega
    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.

    Hilarious, sweet, cheesy, fun read!!!
  • Nico Genes
    Lovely story and charming characters.“Two goody shoes” is the second book in the “Invertary” series, but can be all read as standalone. The course of events gets the reader interested from the very beginning. Then at times, it seemed a bit unusual. Caroline Patterson is a prim and proper librarian, who also runs the Community Center of Invertary, Scotland via the town council. Josh McInnes is a worldwide famous singer. He happens to buy a...

    I loved this rom-com, it had some laugh-out-loud moments that made me delighted. My favorite part of this book was when the heroine started to like herself. I thought this love story was very cute. I recommend to those who like stories that are light and funny and for those who like very sweet romances.

So he asks his friend to find him someone down-to-earth willing to get married in a hurry. He ends up with a sensible yet fiery Scottish librarian who is a force to be reckoned with. In an attempt to win ...

    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...
  • Janielle
    A wedding arrangement? A guy who didn’t believe in love but in commitment and mutual respect? A control freak and a laid-back guy? Funny moments and characters that are easy to fall/root for? Uhm, yes! Sign me up, lol. I laughed and cried, dreamed about the book, and thoroughly enjoyed the whole story! 🤩💕

    3.5 starsIt was utterly ridiculous, but fun, and really sweet.
  • Jessika
    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...
  • Jane Stewart
    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...

    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...

    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...
  • Ingrid Spera
    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.
  • Clare Mantelman
    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...

    A grudging round up from 2.5 stars. Popular singer Josh wants to get married and start a family. Now. His longsuffering best friend/manager is tasked to find the wife, there's a Scottish castle that could be a great virtual character, and some interesting friends and town folk...sign me up for a fun rom-com confection of a summer read.Not quite. While there are some cute scenes that kept this from being a DNF, the poorly written dialogue and freq...

    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,...
  • Izzie d
    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.
