Slap another title on this and it could be any of the many predictable love stories out there. The ending was obvious from the start.

As far as the narration is concerned it is mediocre at best. While the narrator's voice is very pleasant her attempt at an English accent was ridiculous and irritating.

Overall, Audible needs to do a better job with the synopsis. This isn't the first time I've been disappointed once I got into the meat of one of their offerings.
