Anyone who listens to audiobooks knows the voice of Julia Whelan. But did you also know she could write?! She can, and how.

Seriously, just listening to Julia's voice and those she creates for the characters she reads is entertaining enough, but to read or hear - of course, I listened - how well she writes, it's like a double scoop of your favorite ice cream with chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and a cherry. Seriously. The gal can write.

Thank You for Listening is about, surprise, an audiobook narrator. Before you get all wildly twiterpated, it is not autobiographical, or at least that's what Julia says at the end of the book. Wink. Wink.

This book is so good. I was there. I was invested. I LOVED the dialogue. If there was one thing I had to pick out as my favorite part of the book, besides the characters' names: Sewannee, Brock McKnight, Adoaku, it would be the dialogue. Just so good.

Oh, right, and what is the book about - a woman who thought she knew her path, was derailed due to tragedy out of her control, and then how she found a new, albeit splintered, way to come back to finding herself (and the love of her life because this is, after all, a romance book).

SO GOOD. And I'm not into HEA so this is saying something.

Oh, sorry, that's just the sound of my heart shATTERING INTO A MILLION PIECES.
THIS BOOK DOESN'T EVEN COME OUT UNTIL APRIL AND I ALREADY NEED A SEQUEL.

Mix of audio and kindle - Delightful in either format. There are a few sections that are emails or texts and those are better in print but the rest was excellent audio.

Fun story, nice characters, relaxing read.

Heard about this on a podcast and had high hopes but was completely disappointed. I was not invested in any of the characters so I didn’t care a bit about the challenges they faced.
