An anxiety disorder disrupts 14-year-old Audrey's daily life. She has been making slow but steady progress with Dr. Sarah, but when Audrey meets Linus, her brother's gaming teammate, she is energized. She connects with him. Audrey can talk through her fears with Linus in a way she's never been able to do with anyone before. As their friendship deepens and her recovery gains momentum, a sweet romantic connection develops, one that helps not just Audrey but also her entire family.

As usual Sophie Kinsella writes a story that is relatable, somehow dealing with real issues in a light hearted manner. The narration of Finding Audrey by Gemma Whelan was genius and made for an excellent listen. She is extremely engaging; I enjoyed listening to this book a great deal.

Alex Dale is lost. Destructive habits have cost her a marriage and a journalism career. All she has left is her routine: a morning run until her body aches, then a few hours of forgettable work before the past grabs hold and drags her down. Every day is treading water, every night is drowning. Until Alex discovers Amy Stevenson. Amy Stevenson, who was just another girl from a nearby town until the day she was found unconscious after a merciless assault.

The story is written very well; the travel back and forth flows nicely and easy to follow.
I believe that when I'm not ready the story, the narration plays a critical role; this duo made this "great read" into an "excellent listen".

Thriller scribe Sophie Katz is as hard-boiled as a woman who drinks Grande Caramel Brownie Frappuccionos can be. So Sophie knows it's not paranoia, or post-divorce, living-alone-again jitters, when she becomes convinced that a crazed reader is sneaking into her apartment to reenact scenes from her books. The police, however, can't tell a good plot from an unmarked grave.

This audio book was a good listen; fun and light-hearted. The characters are entertaining and the story is overall witty. I especially liked the narrator, Gabra Zackman; she has a great range of voices, giving the characters more energy.

I listen to my fair share of audio books and I find that a poor narrator can ruin a good book. If you're looking for a light listen, that's entertaining, this is a good one.
