A charming, heartwarming, quirky story with...

…a talking ceiling fan!

The eBook was free on KU but I’m glad I got the audio, because it’s fantastic. It’s a “full cast” and done like an old-time radio program with sound effects, which was fun. The main audio narrator was amazing—she also does the mother’s voice.

Some of the dialogue is in Spanish but it’s mostly in context so you get the point. My rudimentary Spanish filled in most of the rest, and what I didn’t catch (since I had the eBook) I Googled. Personally, I liked the Spanish—it felt authentic to the story and the region.

Great story for anyone, anywhere but even more fun if you live in New Mexico—I like to read/listen to things set in the area I live.

Sweet

Sweet and tender, and just long enough. Well written and well read, with a great voice cast.
