Publisher's Summary

From debut author C.A. Burke comes the first installment of a wacky, romantic comedy series about the misadventures of wannabe rock star, Diana Hudson.

Meeting your hot new boss in a bar while singing karaoke - bad. Being fixed up with your old high school boyfriend by your meddling sister - annoying. Making out in your sister's minivan with said boyfriend - embarrassing. This week is shaping up to be a doozy for aspiring singer/songwriter Diana Hudson.

On the wrong side of 30, according to her mother, and still living the bohemian lifestyle of a musician, Diana is having a double martini day. Although a sought-after performer on the not-so-happening Annapolis, Maryland, bar scene, Diana works as a temp at Greene's Staffing to pay the bills. Her assignment this week: help the cape-wearing Mr. Vann Pyre find love online. Unfortunately for Diana, the only man in her life for months has been Max, her fluffy, white Shih tzu-Poodle with a crooked overbite and a bad attitude. But unexpectedly, Diana finds herself up to her chin in men. Her mysterious new boss, Mark Greene, smells so good she'd like to hang him from her rearview mirror, and her chiseled, super-sexy high school sweetheart, Rick Ellis, is back to sweep her off her feet. When Diana's love life goes from nonexistent to off the charts, will she give an old romance a second chance? Or will she take a chance on new love?

A great light hearted funny read

I loved this book and the cast of crazy characters are sensational. It had me laughing out loud at times and eager to know what crazy antics they will get up to next.

As I commute quite a distance to work Audio books are a great alternative to the boring radio or same old playlist everyday. It would be nice to have the other books in this series in Audio as well. I would have already read them one following the other if they were. As it is I'm waiting for my next holiday to read them.

Queenie Baby: On Assignment

An interesting story of a woman working toward her ultimate dream of being a lyricist. I like that while not wildly successful, she hasn't given up. I am all about the mysteries and thrillers and less about romance. This had a nice balance of (not really a mystery) drama and romance. I tend to fast forward past any parts that don't interest me. I enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next in the series

A good start, but...

I enjoy audiobooks more than I should which is why a great book with not-so-great narration is painful. That's what we have here. This is a very lovely story with a sweet, adorkable character and that character was performed to perfection. The other characters - every. single. one - were not. I did not get a sense of any of them from this narrator. The performance of the 80-year-old grandfather was a cringefest. This book deserved better.

Shrill...!

The narrator does terrible men’s voices and SUPER SHRILL and babyish women’s voices and can’t voice or mimic an inner city black person or trans black woman...the only voice that’s, ok, is as the narrator. It’s often grating, however, excellent for falling asleep to, go figure. That noted, the storyline is still funny. The narrator still manages to convey that. Give it a listen; you’ll either like it or hate it. If the narrator is too jarring, read the book; the story is funny.

Her voice

The voice she uses for other female characters is the most obnoxious thing I have ever heard

Good story, painful narration

I thoroughly enjoyed the story which is the only reason I continue to listen. The narrator’s screeching voice for her sister and sometimes for her self almost hurt my ears. I fast forwarded through most of her sister talking and through the times when she was doing that high squeaky voice for herself.

Queen of a book

I enjoyed this book. I kept waiting for the mystery to happen and then we reached the end of the book and I realised the mystery had been unfolding all along. Okay so there was no murder but I enjoyed it all the same. Mainly because of the characters and the crazy antics they got into, the neighbour needed to call the police out a lot. The story is a light hearted humorous romance with a touch of mystery. It's only a touch of mystery because the main character didn't really do any investigating and the story centres around her work (in the office or on assignment as a temp and In bars as a musician), her love life (the men are lining up for dates) and her family (two parents and steps, four grandparents and a sister with her family and all as crazy as each other) but somehow it works and I am looking forward to the next book. Diana aka Queenie baby is still waiting for her big break as a singer and while she waits singing karaoke in bars she works at a temp agency. This week she has to work with eccentric cape wearing Mr.Vann Pyre but if that isn't enough to turn her to drink her grand dad has escaped from the retirement village and is moving in with her, her sister sets her up with her old boyfriend from high school and the boss is making an expected visit to the office. The old boss is thinking of retiring and his nephew is sent in to uncover some discrepancies in the books. Shame he was also the man Diana made a fool of herself with singing karaoke and getting drunk. Can Diana find a way to make a better impression on him and maybe keep her job in the process?He has already met her crazy granddad, what more could go wrong? I liked the narrator and thought she was the right choice for what I imagine a singer, up beat and bubbly. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
