    "Great short story"
    Where does Unlocked rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    I wish this book were longer, I really enjoyed it. The flow was nice and the writing superb.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Prebble???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I love Simon Prebbles voice! I've listened to other books by him and have always enjoyed them. Even when he does female voices I believe it. The men's voices and inflection's are excellent.

    Story
    "ANOTHER SHORT BUT OH SO SWEET NOVELLA"

    If you're into Historical/Romance then you can't get much better than the partnership of Courtney Milan and Simon Prebble.

    Another short novella that will have you empathising with both the leading male and female characters because from their first meeting in their teens the attraction was there but then it went badly from then on when Evan tormented and bullied Elaine to cover up his true feelings, but years later can he make amends and will she ever forgive him. What an emotional roller coaster of feelings and desires - it was yummy.

    Worth a credit? It's on sale at the moment so I would suggest you buy it while it's cheap.

    "Narrator makes A Great Difference"
    What did you love best about Unlocked?

    Depth of characters, storyline, narrator


    What other book might you compare Unlocked to and why?

    Can't think of any


    What about Simon Prebble’s performance did you like?

    You could really tell difference in character voices, depth of emotion through voice, correct accent


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Scene with her mother


    Any additional comments?

    Great book, narrator makes A Great Difference!!! I also bought A Governess Affair, loved the print book. Courtney Milan is great, but could not stand narration.. So returned that one. But Simon Prebble makes a difference.

    "A gem of a book"

    Courtney Milan is a terrific writer. This short story is well done, and what a wonderful surprise to have Simon Prebble as the narrator. He is my favorite.
