    Jocelyn Butler has been hiding from her past for years. But all her secrets are about to be laid bare.... Four years ago, Jocelyn left her tragic past behind in the States and started over in Scotland, burying her grief, ignoring her demons, and forging ahead without attachments. Her solitary life is working well - until she moves into a new apartment on Dublin Street where she meets a man who shakes her carefully guarded world to its core.

    SIMARA says: "An emotional journey..."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to On Dublin Street the most enjoyable?

    The narrator is fantastic. Her seamless transition from English accent to Scottish is nearly flawless and made each character believable, approachable and likable. She expertly personified Joss and it was no trouble believing her as Braden, either.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Joss. Vulnerable strength and genuine attitude. I loved experiencing her transition through the story from being afraid of her feelings and the truth of her inner dialog, to allowing that truth to come out and accept the affects of her reality. And she's witty and funny - always awesome attributes!


    What does Paula Costello bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The Scottish brogue is one of the toughest accents to imitate and she seems to nail it. The way she sounded was much better than the horrid accent in my imagination.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud - "I guess I'm having sausage."


    Any additional comments?

    Awesome story, fantastic narration. Worth every penny.
