Just the Two of Us

Hachette Audio. Apr. 2022. 8:14 hrs. ISBN 9781549110719. $25.98. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
After nearly 35 years of marriage, empty nesters Michael and Julie find themselves in a relationship lacking passion and purpose. Leaving her lawyer’s office with a sheaf of divorce papers, Julie knows something big is on the horizon, but she never imagined it would be something as momentous as a pandemic lockdown. With no one but each other for company, will they slowly drive each other mad, or will a little social distancing be the thing that brings them back together? Author Wilde makes her debut with a character-driven, contemporary romance falling in love with it. As the alternating timeline reveals details of their relationship, listeners will be moved by the funny and flirtatious couple; they’ll root for them to be reunited. Narrators Harriet Fraser and Alex Hyde-White bring life to the dual perspectives of this humorous and heartwarming tale. Both are perfectly matched to the amusing, emotional tone of their respective characters.
VERDICT This audio will appeal to listeners seeking a laugh-out-loud account of renewed love in lockdown; recommended for fans of Emily Henry, Christina Lauren, and Emily Giffin.
