"I am loving the audio books by Barbara Silkstone.
Alice Hart finds herself in all sorts of trouble, after she thinks she is meeting the man of her dreams online.
She is so unhappy with her job, and wants so badly to get away from her awful boss, but he has no intentions of letting her go. He has all kinds of thugs around to do his dirty work. From judges to crazy, obnoxious women.
Alice thinks she is going to England to meet Nigal, and thats where the craziness begins. They are in and out of hotels
every day, like someone is following them, and it turns out there is....
Then upon returning home it does not get any better. Alice is being sued by her boss. There are people getting killed,
bad men showing up at her door, corrupt lawyers, and even worse judges. Alice ends up being her own lawyer. Will she figure out whats going on before it's too late???
This book was so much fun.

The Secret Diary of Alice in Wonderland Aged 42 and Three Quarters is clever, funny, solidly voiced and presents a modern-day twist for Alice all grown up. The second of Silkstone’s titles that I have reviewed in Audio form, the narration provided by Karen Krouse managed to voice Alice with panache and provided an interesting twist with accented wise guys, and smooth delivery of the written words.
The story cleverly places our Alice, a slightly neurotic and germ phobic woman with a sassy sense of humor, a mouth that is engaged often before her brain and a penchant for all things British. She works in real estate for a ‘connected’ man who is developing luxury properties all over south Florida. Unfortunately, while Alice wants to quit, the boss won’t let her, and there are others who expect she will practice some workplace espionage and then testify at a later date.
The story just starts at a level 3 and ramps up from there, with references that are clever plays on the characters and references from the original Alice stories, a few I didn’t realize just how clever until a few sentences later. With several free-falls down the rabbit hole, only to emerge with another plot twist and more action, this story alternated between laugh out loud funny to just plain amusing. And Alice will never be the same again.
I received an AudioBook copy of the title from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
