This was a story of a very sweet romance that the author told using many threads. She wove seamlessly among the present and 18 years ago, and among various characters in the present, and made their story work well. Both the hero and heroine were likable and given substance, a 4-year-old was mostly adorable but could be a brat, teenagers thought and talked the way you'd expect them to, as did adults. The author obviously worked hard to make all of her characters realistic. I was especially impressed with how she nailed the behind the scenes Washington, D.C. culture, that the "villain" was a part of, and that she made him layered. The mystery was interwoven with the romance until the end. I knew there would be an HEA, but not how the mystery would end. My only small criticism was that too much of end of the story was left to the epilogue.
The narrator was excellent. She created very recognizable voices, talked in a realistic manner, and she nailed the 4-year-old. If Audible had an award for best portrayal of a child in an audiobook, I'd expect her to be nominated.
I will definitely look for more books written by Susan Donovan and narrated by Amy McFadden.
