Publisher's Summary

One red eye flight and 10 years of marriage later, Carly Bishop had what she considered a practically perfect life. Her journalist husband and her two adorable children were everything to her. But soon she would find out that her dream life didn't fall in line with her husband's expectations.

Left alone to sort out the pieces of her crumbling life, Carly finds strength in her children and her growing relationship with her in-laws. Most importantly, she finds her greatest strength as she builds a friendship with herself.

Determined to move forward and be happy, Carly does her best to make the most of her difficult situation. But will it be enough to save her marriage and the man she loves, or will his selfishness destroy everything they've worked for, including his own happiness?

Pleasantly surprised

This book was a pleasant surprise for me. It is a well written and narrated story with memorable characters. It's a story that's packed with emotion. I felt the hurt, sadness, frustration, and ultimately happiness that Carly was going through. I have to admit I admire how much patience and determination she had. I definitely recommend this to everyone who likes true to life stories with heart.

Note: No warnings with this one...This is a clean read.

If you enjoy touching stories like me...give this one a try.

I received this book from the author, narrator or publisher free of charge in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

The Girl in Seat 24B

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Girl in Seat 24B?


What a good read, I could relate to it all. You could see what was happening and try to understand and it was great to see a couple fight for a marriage rather than just give up. I loved it. That's what love and commitment is all about.

What does Meghan Kelly bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She gave life t to the characters

My Favorite Author

What made the experience of listening to The Girl in Seat 24B the most enjoyable?

So emotional! I loved Carly and felt her heartbreak over and over. After listening to Michael and how head over heels in love with her he was, I was astounded that he walked away and wanted to throttle him. I knew he would come back although it seemed like it would never happen. I loved, loved, loved the ending!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Girl in Seat 24B?

When she finally decided she was finished (about time!) and didn't make it too easy for him to come back after he realized what he had lost.

Have you listened to any of Meghan Kelly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't, but loved her performance. I'd like to hear more from her.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It was so emotional it sometimes made me sick to my stomach--wasn't sure I could take much more-- but I also couldn't stop reading. Jennifer Peel weaves such interesting stories and is definitely in a class of her own. She makes them both intriguing and fascinating and many with a lot of humor and "feel good" moments. I love that she does all of this while keeping the books clean and with a touch of Christianity.

Any additional comments?

I have liked all of her books, and absolutely loved most of them. Can't wait until they all come out in audio.

Another great read by Jennifer!

I read this book awhile ago and loved it! I was worried listening to it wouldn't be as good, but the narrator did a good job.
This book kept my attention, I had a hard time putting it down. Be prepared to laugh and cry.

Interesting Story

I liked the story about enduring love of the wife in spite of the selfishness and confusion of
the husband. There was no violence bad language or sex which I appreciated. Over all it was pretty good.
However I DID NOT like the narration. The voice of the wife was OK, but the male
voices especially Bishop grated on my nerves.
I would NOT listen to another book by this narrator.

First love, second chances

3.5 stars

I didn’t love the narrator’s voice, but enjoyed the story. It did seem lengthy at times.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Sigh....

.

This is one of my new all-time favorites!

Jennifer Peele has written a wonderful story about two people who fall in love, start a life together and picks up 10 years after the initial meeting.

Michael decides that the marriage is not what he wants anymore and we struggle with Carly to find out why she is not enough.

Anymore will spoil this wonderful book.

Meghan Kelly brings the characters to life, as she always does. I love, love love her performance, especially her interpretation of male characters. It is never distracting and always believable.

I have said it before and will say it again, Meghan Kelly picks out the best books to perform. If I am even just a tiny bit interested in a book, and I see that Meghan Kelly is the narrator I will give it a whirl world. She has yet to disappoint me!

Five stars for every category I believe I am going to download "His personal relationship manager: dating by design, book 1" by Jennifer Peele. It is the only only other books available on audio at this point (2017) I hope there will be more.

The Girl in Seat 24B
By Jennifer Peel
I found this to be a pleasantly sweet story of love and forgiveness. The characters were well developed and the story was suspenseful. As a reader, I was able to jump into the story and feel, love, hate and empathy for the characters. I listened to the audio version book and appreciated the narrators’ talent. This was a quick and smooth listen. I give it a strong 4.5 Boundless Stars. I enjoyed the book, but I really don’t think I could have been as forgiving without more remorseful actions, and even then, I’m not sure.

uggggg, just ugggg

Yeah I'm not sure what is worse... A selfish husband that just decides to up and leave his wife after 11 years of marriage because he's just not happy and resentful of his wife and kids or a pregnant wife who holds on to a man and marriage just because she IS married?
Screw the husband and his feelings. I wanted to shake the woman and tell her that she's worth more than that. Have some self worth lady, scoop up the kids and find a real man or buck it up and go it alone.
This book is all about how much a woman is willing to be walked all over for the sake of "marriage".
It's 2021 and women already have enough issues around the world. Please Mrs author, don't add to women oppression.

Repetitive and sadly a bit dull

Carly's Husband Michael is a man-child with a huge sulk on because he isn't getting what he wants, so he leaves his wife and 2 kids. Carly herself is a woman I found difficult to warm to, she is kind, resourceful and talented and yet has very little sense of self-worth. The story is all about the separation,and how she copes, how she forges a new career and better relationships with her in-laws but I couldn't see why she would want her husband back. He had very few redeeming qualities.
For me this book was a bit of a slog and the constant internal monologue was monotonous.. The writing was very repetitive and the outcome a forgone conclusion.
On the plus side, the story was told without too much direct religion and there was no sex, violence or swearing. I don't mind those things but wanted to try a different type of writing.
I wasn't enamoured of the narrator who for me lacked any emotional warmth in the telling. The male voices were also a bit dodgy.2.5 stars.
