Prolific narrator Andi Arndt returns for the third book of Accardo’s “Forever Adirondacks” series. Denny, a former professional football player, is settling into his quiet new home in the Adirondacks. With his parents’ impending visit, he hires the independent, kind-hearted Bee to decorate his home. With Bee’s plans to move to London for design school and Denny’s uncertainty about his life after football, the duo fight their growing attraction and decide which path their hearts will choose. With her energetic performance style, Arndt keeps the story moving. She has the ability to capture the protagonists’ personalities, most notably their insecurities and the self-confident personas masking them. While she voices each character differently, her portrayal of male characters isn’t as strong as her female ones. Arndt’s expressive voice adds depth to the story, helping to vivify the secondary and tertiary characters. Though the production isn’t quite up to the high standard of the previous series entries, Arndt makes this an enjoyable listening experience.
VERDICT Fans of the series will want to listen.
