Cowritten by USA Today best-selling author Tara Sivec and award-winning narrator Andi Arndt, a hysterically funny, heartfelt romance about starting over and taking chances.
Nothing good ever comes from drinking a box of wine alone. So when I decided to entertain my drunken self by setting up some hand-me-down podcasting equipment and reading the steamy parts from romance novels, I never thought anyone would actually listen. The fact that I admitted my huge crush on my sexy next door neighbor made the whole thing even more mortifying. But sometimes life surprises you, and that’s how my podcast, Heidi’s Discount Erotica, was born.
Now I, Heidi Larsen, a sweet former kindergarten teacher in Waconia, Minnesota, lead a scandalous double life reading erotic novels to the listening world. And with each episode, I find myself embracing my new alter ego more and more. Now I’m starting to feel more comfortable in my own skin and do things I never would have dreamed of - like kissing my neighbor.
Look out, Waconia, because Heidi’s on the loose! She’s in your ears, in your hearts, and down your pants...wait, that didn’t sound as good as it did in my head. Well, you get the picture, don’tcha know!
FIVE (HUGE) BOUNDLESS STARS
Andi Arndt is one of my favorite narrators, and I have listened to so many of her books when I saw that she co-authored a book I was all over it. I didn’t even read what the book was about.
Heidi is a timid Minnesotan ex kindergarten teacher who has a huge crush on her neighbor. She is stuck in a rut and on a drunken whim; she posts a podcast on her life and reads a steamy scene from a romance book. At least what she thinks is steamy. I died. She does not curse and does not say dirty words. This is the story of her journey of a woman who says lady garden to the full-on four-letter word.
Arndt’s Minnesotan accent is spot on I keep thinking of Edie Mclurg anytime she did the voice of the mom. I almost peed my pants laughing so hard! No lie. I was sitting at my desk at work, listening, laughing, head down, banging my hand on the desk, not able to catch my breath, laughing so hard. ROTFLMAO is the only way to describe this one.
I am rating Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words 5 Huge Boundless Stars it is so fantastic!
