This was a lovely story narrated well. Great quirky characters and a satisfyingly happy ending.
I probably shouldn't have agreed to read and review this book as it isn't my normal genre of choice. It would have been 20 years ago though, so I tried to cpnjur up my younger self for this review.
It ticks all the boxes for it's category. Short and to the point? Yes. Mystery having no thrill-value and a resolution Walt Disney would be proud of? Yes. Unrealistic, spontaneous romance beginning with terrible decisions, mixed with erotic and (again) unrealistic sexual activity, culminating in happily ever after? Yes. So, the success of the box-ticking gets 3 stars.
I wasn't wild about all the dessert references; made the main character appear juvenile.
I could only tolerate the narrator because (a) it is a short book [especially so when you up the speed] and (b) I am a professional narrator myself and therefore feel an automatic loyalty to all other voicers out there.
All in all, 3 Stars. Practically a glowing review considering my usual abhorance to this ilk of literature.
