The story is slight and the heroine is as daffy as the day as long, but there is something likeable about this unassuming little comedy romance. I think it is partly because it lacks the venom and spite that crops up in many other chick lit books. It has a great assembly of amusing characters including Evie's big sister who is a delight with her flamboyant clothing and eccentric choice in eyewear accessories, and the description of the Scottish ball is very atmospheric.
For me the top marks go to the narration. Cathleen McCarron reads this with infectious enthusiasm and really carries the story along. Don't read this if you want to be mentally challenged, but do if you really want to brighten up your day.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I don't think I would have continued to the end if I had been reading, but ok for car journey listening although at one point I just wanted to get to the end.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
More depth, more passion, more drama - most of the time I just wanted to tell her to stop being so annoyingly pathetic.
What aspect of Cathleen McCarron’s performance might you have changed?
Some of the voices were better than others.
Could you see The Vintage Girl being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?
Any additional comments?
Main character little too much "Woe is me" - I'm too tall, too gangly, too uncoordinated, too romantic - just too much angst for me.
