Some love stories never end. Sophie Brady is funny, beautiful, a force of nature. One January evening she kisses her adored husband and young son goodbye, closes the door of number 33. At 10 PM she's with her best friend Jenny in Soho, polishing off a second bottle of wine. By midnight, she's dead. Except she doesn't feel dead. And she isn't going anywhere until she helps Ollie find love again.
Heartbroken Ollie is unaware of his new eligible status in the neighbourhood. He's busy fathering Freddie, and trying to work out how to use the washing machine. This is a man who once watered a houseplant for a year before realising it was plastic. Step forward Jenny. Missing her best friend terribly, she throws herself into helping Ollie, neglecting her own imminent wedding. As she gets closer to Ollie, she unearths secrets that make her question quite how well she knew Sophie. And how well she knows her own heart. Where does loyalty end and love begin?

Really Disappointed

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This book needed more of a plot. The synopsis reads well but the characters are dull and dreay.

What could Polly Williams have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The book promises an angel...aren't they supposed to make magical things happen.

What does Clare Corbett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Clare Corbett read reall well. A very good voice.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Angel at Number. 33?

I only got a quarter of way through.

Any additional comments?

I can't seem to return this book. It doesn't allow me to exchange it. I think its haunting me !
