Product Description

About the Author

As a child, Cindy dreamed of becoming a writer. Well, okay, thanks to her grade three teacher reading a chapter of The Little House on the Prairie books to Cindy's class everyday, Cindy actually dreamed of becoming Laura Ingalls Wilder. It made so much sense. After all, Cindy's blond older sister always got to wear blue while Cindy with the "dark as cinders" hair was often relegated to wearing dull old pink—just like Laura. Laura was part of a pioneer family, and until Cindy went to school she lived in a miniscule farming community where her father and grandparents were born. What further confirmation for her future does an eight-year-old with an avid imagination require? When Cindy realized becoming Laura meant learning to travel back in time and using—gasp!—outhouses where she believed evil trolls were hiding to gobble her up, she decided to remain in the present and become a writer instead. Her first poem began, "My father is a logger, He stirs his coffee with his thumb, He has a dog named Blackie, And in his truck they both look dumb." Thus another illustrious literary career was born. Cindy earned a first class B.A. in English Lit. from the University of Victoria before unleashing herself on the unsuspecting workforce. However, she quickly realized her aversion to fluorescent lights and the numbers 9-2-5 wouldn't gain her kudos from her various bosses. Luckily, she married Steven King (note the lack of a "ph"), who whisked her to a tiny logging town where she couldn't find a job...unless you count her stint as secretary to the warden of a minimum security prison. There, Cindy began writing novels, and she hasn't looked back. Because, honestly, what other employer in their right mind would want her? A Romance Writers of America Golden Heart® nominee, Cindy's mission in life is to see her surname spelled properly—with an E. So take heed. That's P-r-o-c-t-E-r. Not, no, never, under any flippin' circumstances should you spell it with two O's. Cindy lives in Canada with her husband, their two amazing sons, a tortoiseshell cat obsessed with dripping tap water, and Allie McBeagle.

Its an okay story, the plot is a bit weak as are the characters. It's not going to win any book prizes but its easy to read. It has romance, humour and all the other elements to make it a good chic lit book.

It is great to be in fantasy with this writer. I loved the part Magee played, could almost fall in love with her myself. It kept me enthralled all the way through. Thank you for a really funny entertaining book.

Magee Sinclair is determined to right the mistakes she's been making at her father's advertising agency. And one of those mistakes is very nearly Justin Cane. Justin's girlfriend, Tina, suddenly sprung on him that she wanted marriage and children, something that is low down Justin's life plan. Now single but wanting to impress the English Nathaniel Willoghby and his wife Katherine, Justin enlists the help of Magee to pretend to be Tina. What Justin didn't count on was his own attraction to Magee and the problems that could cause...

I'm still not 100% sure of my feelings towards Head Over Heels, I started listening to it because I set myself a challenge of listening to more audiobooks, and have only really got into the swing of them recently (I've discovered listening to them at the gym). So its actually taken me a few months to listen to Head Over Heels, not just because of the book itself, but mainly because of the audiobookness.

So firstly the narrator. At first I can't say I was too impressed with Karen White's reading (nothing to do with her, more to do with me) but I actually kind of got into it later on in the book and found her voice kind of soothing by the end of the book. She did good differentiation between the various voices and that went as far as the thoughts that certain characters had as well, which definitely added another level of enjoyment.

Now my main issue with Head Over Heels: the stereotyping.
