This is a nice start to the series & we do learn more about this couple in other stories but there are big gaps in their story, even with future revelations. But the story is nice & the relationship organic, not forced for the shortness of the story.
The story itself was ruined by the narration. I won't buy any more audible books with this narrator. Mispronounced words and an immature tone, emphasis on the wrong words are just examples of what went wrong. It was creepy at times, made me cringe.
