The Misfit Brides books 2 and 3.


Available now at

I’ve been recording all of Jamie’s Misfit Brides books this summer and having a blast with them.  Bliss is a fun town to hang out in!  #4 in the series, SUGARED is on the way and I’m starting my prep read of #5,  MERRIED.  But what was fun about these two is that they take place at the same time.  MATCHED is the story of Lindsay Castellano and her Country-Singer-That-Got-Away Will Truitt, aka Billy Brenton.  Their story is complex with lots of history so it’s a full length novel.  SMITTENED is a novella, about Bliss Ice Cream shop owner Dahlia Mallard, and Billy Brenton’s side man and best friend, bad boy Mikey Diamond.  While Lindsay and Will are working things through in one book, Mikey and Dahlia happen to fall in love in the other book.  There’s some overlap in the stories, so I was glad I got to record them close together.  And I think listeners should listen to them close together, too.

From the review of MATCHED at Reading Between the Wines Book Club:

“I listened to the audio edition of MATCHED with the fantastically talented Karen White narrating. Karen White is one of my all-time favorite narrators. Once again, Karen’s narration is really, truly wonderful. Her pacing is spot on. Her delivery is natural. I could listen to Karen all day and still be mesmerized. Her performances are always highly entertaining, polished and sublimely executed. I have discovered numerous new-to-me authors – including Jamie Farrell – thanks to Karen.”

From the review of SMITTENED at Reading Between the Wines Book Club:

“Karen White returns to fantastically narrate SMITTENED.  There is nothing that falls short in her performance. She captures the persona of each character and brings them to life. Her pacing is spot on. Both her male and female voices sound genuine and character differentiation is a breeze. I could go on fan-girling, but suffice to say, Karen is one of my very favorite narrators for good reason. Her productions are always perfect, polished, exceptional pleasures. Listening to SMITTENED with Karen’s narration adds an additional layer of enjoyment to this installment of Misfit Brides.”

From the review of SMITTENED at The Geeky Blogger:

“Karen is such a great match for this series. She really nailed Dahlia and made me fall in love with Mikey. I listened to the entire series on audio.”
