The Dr Pepper Prophecies Audiobook Review

**Disclaimer: I received a free copy of these books in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions on this book are my own.**

A laugh-out-loud chick lit/romantic comedy novel. Written with dry wit and just a touch of insanity. If you're a fan of Sophie Kinsella, Helen Fielding (Bridget Jones's Diary), Marian Keyes, or Jane Costello, or just love your romcoms, you'll love this!
Twenty-five-year-old Mel Parker has a few tiny problems:
Her job is terrible
She's been dumped yet again
Her ex is now her boss
Her parents think she's a loser compared to her perfect younger sister
All her efforts to improve her life seem doomed to failure
There just isn't enough chocolate in the world to make up for the above

The one good thing in her life has always been her best friend, Will, who has seen her through every crisis from lost toys to pregnancy scares. But his girlfriend (who's prettier, better-dressed, more successful, and secretly evil) is determined to replace Mel as the woman in his life, and how is Mel supposed to compete?
So what do you do when you've pretty much given up on your own life? Help others, of course!
After all, what's the worst that can happen?

The Dr. Pepper Prophecies was a great joy to read...well, to hear. Jennifer Gilby Roberts is a great writer and offers up a humorous look at what life is like when you're in love with your best friend but you don't know you're in love with your best friend. Melanie's life is in shambles and the more she tries to help others find love, the more damage she does. Through all of this she's had Will right by her side but now the possibility of him marrying someone else sends her head first into the realization that she is in love with Will and that she is the right woman for him. Between her pregnancy scare, attempt to look at her own cervix in an airplane bathroom, failed attempts at finding her roommate, Beth, a boyfriend, a horrendous start to a job interview, and tirade that ends up causing her to lose her job; I could not stop laughing!
I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy the fact that this was an audiobook. I've never listened to an audiobook before and I was a little apprehensive about having someone read a book to me. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised! I loved the fact that the narrator had an English accent to fit the story, which takes place in England, and that her voice was so light and upbeat that it didn't feel like someone was reading a story to me. It felt more like a friend re-telling a story than just someone reading it. 
I really enjoyed this book. I love Jennifer's writing style and her sense of humor. I definitely recommend this book if you're looking for a funny, upbeat, chick-lit read. (Especially if you're a fan of Emma by Jane Austen!)
