This was a very good story. I loved the characters-crazy Aunt Grace was my favorite. The story moved along well and quickly. The main reason I only gave it three stars was the horrible spelling and grammar. Did the Kindle version not have an editor? I admit, I am a bit of a grammar snob, but some of these mistakes were awful. The use of "are" instead of "our" is a huge pet peeve of mine. Otherwise, the story was great!

This book was a great, fun book to read, with so many interesting (a few sad, too) moments. I read it in just 2 days, as it really kept me wanting to continue to see what was going to happen next. I loved crazy Aunt Grace & the "pink" poodle! The reader can reflect back on his/her own life to remember special moments of importance & to see that one gets out of life exactly what he/she puts into it.

This is a sweet enough story about a woman coming to terms with being her truly authentic self with some delightful characters and a fun storyline. My biggest issue with the Kindle version is the appalling number of grammatical and spelling errors - they took the fun right out of the book.

A fun book with interesting, quirky characters. Everyone who reads it will wish they had a nutty Aunt Grace, not to mention the poodle! I thought the book was going to be nothing but enjoyable fluff but there are a few sad moments in the book as well, which makes the otherwise somewhat improbable set up a lot more believable. Breezy and fun.

Carpe Bead'em was well worth the read. A fast burner store manager for Gucci gets transferred back to her small, boring, hometown only to fall in love with Beading when introduced at a local boutique. The storyline got a little complex at times, trying to keep all the characters straight but, all in all, a cute story and worth the read. Again, Kindle...come on people...edit!!!

Carpe Bead 'em was a delightful read. My favorite character was Hallie's crazy Aunt Grace. The places where the story takes place are familiar. I am a beginner beader so, I loved that element of the story. I would and have recommended this book to a friend.

Oh my goodness! I had a hard time putting this down. I was engrossed in the story from the moment I picked it up. Carpe Bead'em was such an enjoyable read. I don't delve into chick lit often enough.

The story was great. I don't know much about the fashion world, but I loved following Hallie through her job. The narration was perfect for me. The story wasn't overwhelmed with too much detail or too much inner dialogue, but held a perfect blend to make the story flow seemlessly.

I loved how Tonya Kappes was able to bring her characters to life. I loved reading about Hallie and her crazy Aunt Grace. It was a very endearing relationship, even if Aunt Grace did drive Hallie crazy just a bit. I struggled at not skipping ahead just to make sure everything works out for Hallie. I was on pins and needles while wishing and hoping she got the happy ending she deserved.

Tonya Kappes is a great writer. I loved the humor, friendship, growing pains, crazy late night calls and the pink boy poodle. I decided I don't stray out of the paranormal romance genre enough. This was a joy to read, even with it's sad moments (in which I did, in fact, need a tissue), and I highly recommend this.

I've never read this author before. But some of the girls in my book club lover her stuff so decided to try her out. And for the price, I had nothing to lose. It was fun and light. If chick lit isn't your thing, I'd skip it, but it delivered what I expected. I'd read more from the author.
