The moment she turns 25, Kayla Bedford is going to grab her trust-fund money and take off for Paris. She'll drink wine, read at quaint cafés, and meet a handsome prince who'll sweep her off her feet. It's been her dream since she was 12. And now she's so close to realizing it, she's counting down the days. But first she's got to do something for her boss-slash-landlord-slash-best-friend. Patrick is a handsome, caring vet. But he needs someone to love, even if he doesn't think so.

At 32 Russell Green has it all: a stunning wife, a lovable six-year-old daughter, a successful career as an advertising executive, and an expansive home in Charlotte. He is living the dream, and his marriage to the bewitching Vivian is the center of that. But underneath the shiny surface of this perfect existence, fault lines are beginning to appear, and no one is more surprised than Russ when he finds every aspect of the life he took for granted turned upside down.

Where does Two by Two rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Fairly close to the top. While it was predictable, the Father was not the "normal" Father figure. He was someone that really stepped up to the plate.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The Father. He really thought out what he was doing and made sure his daughter was always first.
