Okay story and good narration.
This was an 8 hour long audible book that seemed like it was 15 hours. The miscommunication between these two seemed to drag out forever. The internal dialogue was becoming annoying. Just freaking talk to each other already! It really seems like Christy Calwell books are all like that. Full of internal dialogue.
The story line and plot was decent. I liked that the ages of the main characters Victoria and Malcolm were older, she was 43 he was 45. I don't know if I would like all HR romance to be with older couples because I like the HEA ending with having babies with younger couples. I liked the murder mystery portion. It did get better when they finally told each other the truth and got it together. I like spy books, and this one could have been better, IMO.
As for the narration Time Campbell does a good job narrating just about ALL CC's books. He does really well making the women sound like women. A total plus there. He has a nice reading voice and the men sound sexy.

Christi Caldwell has written one of the most emotional and well characterized stories in her career as an author. The second chance story of a middle aged couple uses previously written stories to advantage in creating the story line but it reads well on its own. Tim Campbell narration is spot on as usual breathing life into the world Christi has pulled us into with her charming words.
