Great Book, Great Narrator, Poor Sound Editing

I greatly enjoyed this book. I have listened to several narrated by Virginia Leishman and have found her to be talented and greatly added to the telling of the tale. The characters are likable, relatable, and I found myself sad to hear the story end. The love scenes are steamy without being over the top. The only negative thing I will say is that it seems to have been poorly editied. You can hear too much of the narrator's breaths, sighs, teeth clicking, etc. But this seems to be unique to this series of novels. I have heard this narrator perform several other audiobooks and this was not an issue. If you can get over that, you will have a lovely story to enjoy.
