Publisher's Summary

From USA Today bestselling author Pippa Grant comes a fabulously sharp-witted romantic comedy about a socialite’s fall from elitist grace to backcountry purgatory - and her accidental tumble into love.

If the Upper East Side had an evil twin, it would be Tickled Pink, Wisconsin. This run-down, backwoods town isn’t worthy of the footprint of my Louboutins, never mind all of me.

But when my grandmother has a near-death experience and realizes we Lightlys can’t buy our way into heaven, she relocates the family to Tickled Pink to work on improving our souls. And that’s how I trade my heiress existence for gigantic bugs, dishwater coffee, and a cranky single dad named Teague Miller.

Teague spends his days fishing, raising his spunky teenager, and after an unfortunate incident involving cheese curds, living rent-free in my head. The one thing he and I can agree on is that I don’t belong here. He’s willing to help me escape - until the unexpected happens.

I kind of like him. I might even more than like him.

But am I ready to give up the life I adored for a man I love to hate?

Critic Reviews

“Grant brings both passion and wit to this love story, with genuine characters, a charming exploration of Phoebe’s growth, and a setup that will put readers in mind of Schitt’s Creek. This is sure to put a smile on any romance lover’s face.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Narration Trumps Story

This story didn’t blow me away and it’s certainly not my favorite book from Pippa Grant but it was pretty good. It kept my attention for the most part and I appreciated the level of character growth involved (as it was much needed). Narration is well done and enhances the storyline. One of the other reviewers mentioned something about the “Oprah” references. I will second that this did get annoying and the “oh my Oprah’s”, etc. became more frequent as the story went on. Further, I think gender identity issues are much more complex than they are presented here. And I believe some readers will take issue with some of the content, especially when it involves a teenager. Most of us read to escape and if an author is pushing a social or political agenda, even marginally, it will be frowned upon by some of your audience. I personally was happy this was a free “read and listen” and found it mostly entertaining. Not sure it’s credit worthy.

A thought...

I thought that I would try another Pippa Grant story and before I'm through chapter 4, I remembered why I have never finished one of her books. Why do I need to know what color of skin the characters in your books have? How about if we get to know the characters as the story progresses? Maybe some observation is made regarding the color of their skin...or not.

Too much s commentary on today's society

I hated giving the narrators a bad review as they were great but this book deserves a one star review. There's too much in the book that I consider more devisíve [SIC] behavior in today's world

Bleh

This was a complete waste of my dollars, don't get me wrong, I have LGBT immediate family members; this book focused more on SJW issues than an every day romance. And by the way, as someone with a medical degree and plenty of doctors in the family, you do not encourage a teenager to transition until they are an adult, of course that is if you have common sense and scruples. If you have an issue with this, earn a psychology and a psychiatry degree before you disagree.
To be fair, this is the first book I've read by this author that has disappointed me.
The narration was really good, the story, not so much, hence the overall 3 stars.

First DNF for Pippa

I can't stand Oprah and this ruined the whole book. Couldn't stand it anymore and stopped at 45% Story was pretty boring and predictable and I felt like I'd heard it all 100 times before. Sorry Pippa I normally love your books but what happened here? Savannah & Sebyo were great as always so 5 stars for them.

Hilarious, Heartfelt and Swoony Romance!

I absolutely adored everything about this hilarious, heartfelt, and swoony romance! Phoebe is a wealthy New York socialite who works hard to take over her family empire one day. When her grandmother has a near death experience, she decides her family is in need of an intervention. So she forces them to live in the quirky, small town of Tickled Pink, Wisconsin, so they will learn to become better people. She has many rules, and hilarious activities they must do to help them along the way. The residents are not happy to have them and come up with ways to scare them into leaving. Teague loves his quiet life and is especially anxious to drive them away. He knows people like Phoebe and her family and wants to protect his daughter from their selfish greed. But the more he pushes Phoebe, the more she rises to the challenge and he starts to respect her. The more Phoebe learns about this small town and the frustrating, grumpy lumberjack, the more she questions who she really is. As they spend time together, they start to give in to their attraction. Phoebe starts to care for Teague, his daughter and the small town life with all the quirky residents. But when Teague's secrets come to light, will they be able to get past the truth or will they both feel betrayed and heartbroken? I love Teague and Phoebe together! Phoebe is determined, quirky and fun. She just wants to be a better person and to be loved despite her flaws or her past. Teague was grumpy on the outside but sweet, caring, and knew when to distract her, make her laugh, and when to make her swoon. Their story is hilarious, sweet and at times heartbreaking. This witty, and warm romcom has the right blend of wisdom, belly laughs, hard-earned character growth, and heat. I laughed out loud so many times, and fell in love with the quirky, small-town homey feel, along with all the supportive and quirky family and friends who made this story even more entertaining and authentic.
Savannah Peachwood, and Sebastian York did a great job narrating this moving story and bringing it to life. I loved their humor, and their easy ability to make this hilarious, awkward and emotional story even better!

Oh My Oprah!!

Oh my Oprah! This book was so good! Funny & entertaining. Loved it all. I mean it was so good I wanted to pack my own bag and move to Tickled Pink. It's a small quiet town with lots of secrets but a community of people who will love and support you.
Grandma Gigi has a near death experience and realizes her family is on the wrong path and they all need to be better people so they can get into heaven. It's just hilarious. You have this super elite & rich family move to an abandoned school with no comforts not even hot water! So they can try & become better people. The struggle was real. Also can't forget about the narrators. They were perfection!

A well written & well narrated novel

If a book whether written or audio has the name Pippa Grant afixed you're guaranteed an enjoyable experience. The One Who Loves You exemplifies that statement. The story dives into people coming to terms with themselves. Examining their past and embarking on making themselves better people & falling in love simultaneously; even if they're initially dragged kicking & screaming to confront their lives.

Sounds heavily philosophical but it's laced with a humor & the characters command your heart & attention.

The Audio narration provided by Savannah Peachwood & Sebastian York is stellar. They bring to life Penelope & Teague. A listener cannot go wrong with the One Who Loves You. It's the marriage of outstanding writing with life pumping narration.

This is the third book

No I did not love this book. I fought really hard to finish it. This is the third disappointment by this author. Questioning if I should give this author another chance later on or write the author off. Normally if I hear anything from this female narrator I up the speed to hurry through it but in this book the narrators is the only thing that helps it.

Insulting and terrible

Why is it romance novels are either about lovable billionaire men or hateful, despicable billionaire women? This book pounds the theme of despicable upper east siders (NY), including the heroine. It’s a constant theme throughout, denigrating rich people. The hero even says the heroine wouldn’t be considered pretty if she wasnt rich. What?? I really hope this audiobook was included, I would hate to think I paid for it. Please save your money. Or pay for it because evidently disposable income (especially if you are female) makes you evil.

Loved this story ❤

This is a brilliant, unusual set up for an enemies to lovers story.
Set in a small town full of wonderful, quirky characters, who we will hopefully hear more about in future books in the series. I listened to virtually the whole thing on the first day of release, because it was just so good, and then finished listening in the middle of the night, after I woke up at 3am and realised I'd never get back to sleep until I listened to the last 90 minutes, as I just couldn't wait till morning to find out the ending, after such a good plot twist! 😄
I absolutely loved this book, and have already pre-ordered the follow on book for when it is released later in the year.
Excellent narration by Savannah Peachwood & Sebastian York.
And for anyone not familiar with fried cheese curds, yes they really are THAT good! I'm English, but tried them in Minnesota, and Wow!! 😋

An Okay listen... very drawn out

I really struggled with this one.
It felt like the Male lead didn't even like the female main character. At one point he even mentioned that if she wasn't rich she wouldn't be considered beautiful. there was a side story with an ex that seemed weak and didn't really lead to any character growth.
There was so much unnecessary internal dialogue during conversation that really took away from the flow of the story.
The LGBTQ reps were great and there were some occasional funny parts but all in all it was average.

Another great book by Pippa grant ……. But

I love Pippa Grant’s books but Savannah Peachwood just takes the gloss off this book as her reading of the male characters is so flawed especially with a side kick like Sebastian York. Please please please-duet style would have really made this book scream orgasms instead of the dull moan it is. Kayley Loring has mastered the duet style of readings/ narration and it’s so wonderful. Please try it in your next book.

Typically Pippa Granty

Yet again an amazing story from Pippa . I just couldn’t stop listening to it. Can’t wait for the next one in the series
