Fun story! Great characters! Love the narrator!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Laura and Tracy Hickman have been well-known authors for decades, and this book proves that they haven't lost their touch! What a fun book! I highly recommend this and it's prequel Eventide. Thanks Hickmans! You made dish and chore time a ton of fun!

Excellent Story, really funny and enjoyable!
Would you consider the audio edition of Swept Up by the Sea to be better than the print version?
I am a dressmaker who listens to audiobooks while working and I really enjoyed this audiobook, Simon Vance is a top rate performer and the story is very funny, with that perfect mix of humor and seriousness.
What did you like best about this story?
The story, how it evolves and the humor that is conveyed with it.
What does Simon Vance bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Simon Vance is a genius! (his perfomance of 'The Prestige' is amazing!) and he manages to blend the humor so well in to the story. Also in the serious moments he manages to retain a dignity, whereas so many narrators descend into a whinny or overly serious tone of voice he manages the perfect balance.
Who was the most memorable character of Swept Up by the Sea and why?
well.... they were all really good, I liked Verity and her evolution from a small town girl to realising she didn't need a man to complete her, and I liked Abel and am very much looking for to his book (which I am guessing must be book 3 in the series)
Any additional comments?
I think this was a very smart well thought out book with an excellent performance and also recommend Eventide which was the first book in the series and was also excellent!!
