あらすじ・解説

Widowed before her 30th birthday, Gracie Collins has dealt with her share of tragedy. Lonely and on her own, she ends up taking a job with an arrogant boss. Three years later, she’s taken to tolerating him for the sake of entertainment. When she’s not eating the frustrations he’s caused, that is. Everything changes when a stroke of good luck puts Gracie in a position she never imagined. 

Freed of the rat race, she begins contemplating her identity, goals, and dreams. She begins taking chances and expanding her horizons, but is she ready to move on with life, love, and the future? Will her newfound fortune pave the road to happiness? Or, will Gracie find that the wealth has left her poorer than ever before?

Poor narration quality

I wish that I could have listened to the entire book. but the quality of the narration was so bad I couldn't finish the book. The recording sounded like the narrator was recording in a tin can. Please consider rerecording this book with a better narrating environment.

This book was provided at no cost in exchange for a review.

Well written & enjoyable

This my second Jude Ouvrard book, and I have to say she is a very talented author with the ability to captivate her readers/listeners. Lost & Rich is one of those stories that you find yourself savoring every moment of it. The storyline and character development are stellar, authentic, and convincing. Tia Johnson's narration captures the essence of the narrative and the characters, breathing life into the story. Overall, this was a fabulous listen, and I strongly recommend this audiobook.

Becomes Found and Rich

The author has written a story with complex, realistic, and at times even funny characters. Gracie's friend, Penny, is funny and truly a best friend. I love the plot and character development in the story. Gracie works her rear off for her domineering boss because she needs the job. But when she gets a great deal of money, her job becomes a memory. I enjoyed how Gracie and Austin are reunited and their love develops. Personally, I would have loved more of their love story but there was enough to make it a wonderful story.

The narrator did a good job of portraying the emotions of these characters and bringing them to life. She is a good storyteller. However,at times her voice did have a hollow sound to it. I do recommend this Audible book. It really had me experiencing a multitude of emotions.

Such a let down ☹

This book has been on my tbr for years, and I already owned the ebook before listening to it on audio. I'm not sure if I missed this is the blurb, but it doesn't seem like a romance until well past 60% into the story. And that is not in a slow burn way that some books are done, it's more of a coming into herself kind of story. And there is nothing wrong with that, it's just not what I was expecting or looking for. That initial 60% of the book is spent with the fmc mourning and still in love with her dead husband, followed by interest in guys other than the male mc, including one she sleeps with. Once the romance starts between our main characters, it develops in hyper-speed. The characters are suddenly talking about getting engaged after only 2 rocky days of a relationship? Another contention I have is that Gracie is self-described as curvy, but the writing/her thoughts are not respectful of the plus size community, at least that is how it sounded based on the narrators tone and inflection.

Regarding the audio book, the sound quality was terrible, it seemed hollow and maybe had an echo. The narrator, who is new to me, it sounded like she has a slight lisp, just enough of one to notice every so often, but it was not so obvious that it detracts from the listen. Or it's possible that this was just another result of the recording. There were other technical issues as well: pauses, background noises, skips; things I've never heard before with audios.

It doesn't seem like there was a whole lot here that I liked, but I will say that Pulley was probably my favorite thing about the book. I may have liked it more and rated higher if we had seen more of him, and perhaps got his POV for at least some of the chapters.

Money doesn’t buy happiness

We’ve got the main character that feels like her life has stalled out. She’s a young widow living with cats and hates her boss. She’s fortunate enough to come into some money and decides to change things up a bit. She soon realizes she is missing what’s right in front of her and the money isn’t what is going to change her life.

I appreciate growing with the main character throughout the story, but it was oddly rushed yet moved too slow at the same time. It was an overall HEA but the low quality of the recording was a bit distracting. The romance was sweet and the overall story left a big grin on my face.

a fun listen

This is a fun listen. Gracie and her best friend, had me laughing throughout this story. Gracie's boss was difficult, domineering and a perfectionist. When she had the surprise opportunity to quit, she did. When she went on a singles cruise, thats when things heated up for her. She met her match! This story had a few surprises.
Tia Johnson was great as a narrator. She brought this story to life. Giving all the emotions and voices to each character. Everything was great except the actual recording , it seemed not as professional as it should have been. I was gifted this audio and offered my honest review.

Good Story

The story was good but slow. There were funny moments. Did not expect the hero to be Mr. Pulley but I enjoyed the twist. The narrator was good but it sounded like she was reading in a closet. Will definitely try more books by the author. I requested this free audiobook and am giving an honest review voluntarily.

love and lottery!

What would you do if you were widowed and won the lottery? Gracie finds herself alone, wealthy and unhappy at her job. She quits, but now has too much time on her hands. Hookups and shopping just are not doing it for her. When she is given the opportunity to take a cruise with her perfect match, she jumps at the chance! Austin was Gracie's boss. Disgruntled and tough, he drives his employees crazy. But with Gracie, it's his attraction to her that makes him even tougher. Now that she's gone, he will do just about anything to get her attention. Will he be able to catch her eye? I enjoyed this look at life from Gracie's perspective. Austin is just like a big teddy bear for me. His gruff exterior is his armor. It's a fun, quirky journey to finding their chance at happiness.

Tia Johnson has a good voice and pace. It's my first listen by her and I found her voices to be good for the characters, and she transitioned well between male and female. The one thing I did find is that there is a hollowness or tinny sound to the narration which at times is distracting.

OK

The story was good and different but slow. I had to speed it up to get through it. But I like faster paced stories. It did have it's funny moments.

Great story

I really enjoyed this story. Gracie has some good luck but she tried not to let it change her. She opens up to some that she normally wouldn’t and that opens her eyes to new experiences. Great story. Great characters. HEA. Narration was great. Not the highest quality equipment but her voice was great. I definitely recommend this book.

Great story

I loved this book. Gracie had me laughing out loud as she and her friend were so funny.
The romance in the book was nicely done although some more interaction between Gracie and her boss before she quite her job would have been entertaining. I loved how she talked about him in her head and complained about him to her friend.
The narrator, Tia Johnson, did an excellent job. I enjoyed the narration but it took me a few minutes to get used to the tinny sound of the recording.
Overall, this was a very enjoyable book and I'd happily read more by the author and listen to more recordings by the narrator.

I voluntarily reviewed an audio review copy.

Enjoyable storyline

This storyline had me laughing out loud at many points. The characters are well written and the humour is great. Tia gives a great performance. I can relate to the leading lady as she is clumsy and doesn’t think before she speaks!!

Imagine losing and winning at the same time

Gracie lost hard, and won big. I cannot even begin to imagine the rollercoaster of emotions that brings. But Jude Ouvard writes all of those emotions and struggles that helped me to imagine it. Austin was not a great boss, but when Gracie leaves, he has to have her back. THis push and pull creates an intriguing romance and I could not stop reading because I just had to know what was next. I really enjoyed the changes in Gracie's life that kept her true to herself and kept Austin chasing her. The chase is always half the fun. Jude Ouvard brought out the fun, banter and struggles with ease through her writing.

Tia Johnson has a great voice to listen to. I easily got lost in her narration and felt as if I was within the pages of the story, TIa was able to keep the characters seperate and easy to follow. Her narration enhanced the experience of this listen.
