Very contrived but a sweet and captivating book.

The narrator is excellent and this is a good summer read. You can't help liking it.

If you have any degree of misophonia, skip it.

If you could sum up The Letter in three words, what would they be?

Entertaining & well written if a little contrived. This was quite an enjoyable story with all of the loose ends neatly tied up.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The very audible lip smacking, breathing, noisy nasal inhalations/exhalations, and other moist mouth sounds almost made this book unbearable. Turning the volume down didn't help because the audio levels were all over the place with low-talking and whispering.
