Hearing the character's frustration and anxious attempts to make things work out was a lot of fun.
The tale of the souffle Beth's mother made was a hoot! As were many of Beth's and her mother's cooking exploits.
Hearing her voice helped me picture a young, attractive woman. She used the often-repeated phrases, "in my defense," and "in Sam's defense," to great effect!She does a good job of building suspense.
Toward the end, I laughed out loud. Otherwise, I smiled a LOT. And I really wanted to know what was going to happen, with all the "in my defense" build-up!
The narrator was very close to the voice I heard in my head when I read the book.
I love the humor.
Boy Meets Girl Meets Fallen Souffle
Since I'd already read the short book, I knew I'd enjoy the story. The narrator was quite good with this material.
