Publisher's Summary

When we last saw Wendy Darlin and Roger Jolley, they'd recovered twelve of the thirteen Egyptian icons stolen from the British Museum. Wendy, Miami realtor and part-time tomb raider, is now in a frantic race against time and a murderer as she searches for the last Lost Boy hidden somewhere in London while a killer heat wave invades the city.

Join Wendy on her latest wacky adventure!

Fun on the run with Wendy Darlin and her Roger Jolly. Each hysterical novel in the series is an easy stand-alone, but the hilarity multiplies exponentially as you stack up the puns and innuendoes by reading more of them. Here they are on the hunt for the last Lost Boy as commissioned by Benny Hanna. There is lots more going on, but no spoilers here! Whenever you have too much stress, just grab one of the Wendy Darlin series and laugh yourself silly.
Nicole gives a great audio performance once again

Woeful accents!

Would you try another book from Barbara Silkstone and/or Nicole Colburn?

I would be very cautious considering the narrator chosen for this book.

What was most disappointing about Barbara Silkstone’s story?

The narrator. It is difficult to follow the story when I'm constantly wincing at the dreadful accents and the stilted style of the narrator.

Would you be willing to try another one of Nicole Colburn’s performances?

Absolutely not.

What character would you cut from London Broil?

I couldn't immerse myself in this book because of the horror narration.

Any additional comments?

Don't ever ask this narrator to try accents again.

Funny and filled with action

Would you consider the audio edition of London Broil to be better than the print version?

Love this series. Wendy Darlin is a cross between Lara Croft and Lucille Ball. Book two has her searching for a stolen Egyptian icon hidden somewhere in London. The clever play on words and the quirky character names are like a treasure hunt within a treasure hunt. One must read all of them to get the full depth of the characters, as each book expands on at least one of the previous book's characters. Can’t wait for book three.

What did you like best about this story?

The characters
