    1. Miranda is a quiet girl character done right.She's amazingly brave, loyal, loving; underneath her "invisible", calm appearance lies a backbone of steel.She's content to be herself and accepts that other people may not always be crazy about her, and that's so refreshing!Self-pitying whiners are never cute.I also like how Miranda isn't intimidated by a woman more attractive than her.She isn't those girls who find excuses to call themselves superior to other women.Shep is a super cute match to Mira [...]


    2. Finding Miranda by Iris Chacon was an Online BookClub book of the Day (BOTD) on 04 January 2017. It was a completely free download from . To be redundant, the price was USD 0.00. It was not a Kindle Unlimited (KU) book. An OnlineBookClub review stated the genre was romance but with interesting twists of humor. I stay away from the romance genre but I like well-done humor so I am happy to recommend this book as hilarious. My kind of humor is understated and almost stereotypical British. This stor [...]


    3. Miranda is a shy librarian who's new in town and chronically invisible. So it's ironic when her handsome neighbor, Shepard, sees her--even though he, well, doesn't. And not to mention that now there are some men around who see both Miranda and Shepard and apparently want them dead in Finding Miranda, a novel by author Iris Chacon.I wasn't sure what this book was, exactly, when I picked it up. A cozy mystery? A romance? Chick lit, maybe? Well, no, not chick lit. But now that I've read it, I can't [...]


    4. There is no beating around the proverbial bush with this one – I loved it. Chacon’s style of writing is smooth and lovely, her words float off of the page and into your heart. Miranda is a librarian, invisible to most around her, save the ones who matter! We discover Miranda has inherited a house from an aunt in Florida but all is not as it may at first seem. Having spent some time in Florida myself I felt that the author has captured it perfectly. I could feel the heat on the back of my nec [...]


    5. Hugely entertaining with endearing, well-drawn characters that pull you into their world. With plenty of humour, great dialogue and an old-fashioned community spirit the story moves along at an easy pace. Unexpected situations abound and there is plenty of intrigue and several not-so-welcome surprises. Thoroughly enjoyable and a writing style that has convinced me to read another of the author's books.


    6. Ebook discovery Freebie, wanted to end 2016 and start the new year with something sexy and light, after I did not manage to torture myself through the last third of The Circle.No sex (!), bad sign for a romance, and could have done with some hot, steamy sex, for me at least. Romance was ok, but for me also not very good.A few unexpected killings/deaths, some quite gruesome.Also in one case the culprit gets away and someone other frames, not something I like.Romance was also not that fluffy. Not [...]


    7. This was such a cute and quick read. Fluffy and funny, though not without its own tearjerker moment. I loved all the characters, which is rare for me.


    8. Fun!Lovable heroine who finds her courage and gets the hunk. Fun! I will look for more books by Iris Chacon.


    9. This is one of the sweetest stories I have ever read! Shepard is cute and funny and totally endearing. Will read again on a rainy day.


    10. Loved itI am so happy to read a clean story that doesn't include cursing or mature content. I really enjoyed the characters. I wish it was a series.




    11. ( Format : audiobook )"She knew a scary woman when she saw one."Had this reader noticed that Finding Miranda was billed as a romance, I almost certainly wouldn't have listened to it - and what a loss that would have been. Yes, it is a love story: the girl no one can see until a gorgeous hunk discovers her hiding behind a castor bean plant, and she, like all the other ladies in Magnolia Street, joins the daily coffee ritual watching him and his giant dog jog past.It is above all a laugh out loud [...]


    12. This was a great book, I wish that it was a series! The characters are great, the story line is well developed and the humor is clean, relate-able and fun. *The heroine Miranda was a person that was mild and unobtrusive, and people overlooked her. She has skills and talents, but because she wasn't a 'look at me' type of person, those skills were underutilized and dusty on the shelf. When her aunt dies she has the motivation to make changes in her life that other people wouldn't necessarily make, [...]


    13. FOUR STARSFinding Miranda was a great find. The story is very quaint and an easy read. As expected, Miranda needs finding, but in a way you may not expect from this little mystery. There is a few twists and turns that are a pleasant surprise in the story as well as some plots you hope to develop the way they do.It is a light hearted book, that has some parts to make you chuckle, cry and maybe even get you a little hot under the collar (in more than one way). All in all, I enjoyed this book and r [...]


    14. I was so disappointed about the tragedy. The best part of the whole book was the interactions with Dave and Shep. Dave seemed more like a human the way he responded to what was said. And then THAT happens. I didn't want to believe until the last couple of pages where I resigned to accept the fact. There were so many heart warming scenes with Shep and Miranda, they were just too cute. The entire thriller/mystery/crime story behind it spiced up the whole thing, however, somehow, something didn't j [...]


    15. Wow, what a wonderful story! Great characters, great story. This book had it all. It had me laughing and in tears. The two main characters Miranda and Shep are funny and realistic. The dog Dave really ads to the story. I was in tears when the tragedy happened and again when they lost hope. The ending was good but I hope there will be a second book.


    16. I found Finding Miranda to be an unusual but entertaining read. It had a quirky style to it, and I didn't take long to settle into it and eagerly await the "side comments" from both the author and characters; many of which I found quite entertaining. Although full of ups and downs, it was an entertaining read and I will re-read it one day.


    17. A fun narrative of a mystery to solve with a bit of flirting along the way. Very difficult to describe in a nutshell and some people will probably fault-find but if you don't take the subject too seriously then it is an enjoyable and refreshingly fun read.


    18. Great humour, characters and story tellingA short novel. Fun and romantic.The characters were great even when superficial.It needed an epilogue with guide dogs for the blind matching dogs to people for a little depth and to raise awareness of service dog charities.



    19. HmmUnfortunately, I am not a fan of this book. It was very difficult to keep up with and it did not capture my attention.
