Clare Lydon is one of my favorite authors in the lesfic genre. Her books always bring a smile to my face and leave me feeling wistful and satisfied. This tale of Jess's return to London after a sordid heartbreak is the first in Lydon's London Series. We get to watch Jess stumble through getting back to a life in London as a single thirty-something looking for love. Jess meets up with Angela, Karen and Lucy and it is a fun read to discover where her happily ever after will take her.
I had already read London Calling so I was a little hesitant to listen to the audiobook because when I do that, the narrator's performance never lives up to what I have already imagined in my head. This was not the case here. If anything, the narration just brought more life to the incredibly witty dialogue that I have come to expect from Ms. Lydon. The production quality was good and Emily Bennet did a good job of creating a robust cast.
Note to buyers: The performance and sound quality of the sample that is provided here is mediocre at best. The actual audiobook sounds much better.

I love this book so much! I'd read it previously on my Kindle, and it was just as good - if not better on audio. I started it up in the car with my wife in the passenger seat...and now, Clare Lydon officially has a new fan. If you enjoy sitcom-style humor, realistic characters and unfortunate incidents that make you cringe, I can't recommend this book highly enough!
Now I have read and listened to the 3 books published in the series. All books are great fun fun and have sweet romances. I really enjoyed London Calling which is a great start for the series. The narration is fantastic.
I read London Calling when it first came out and really enjoyed it. I did wonder how it would fare as an audio book and I wasn't disappointed. It was great to hear Jess and Lucy brought to life. I would certainly recommend it.
