Ship Wrecked

HarperAudio. (Spoiler Alert, Bk. 3). Nov. 2022. 12:27 hrs. ISBN 9780063215894. $27.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
The last person Peter thought he’d see at his audition for the popular Gods of the Gates television series is the curvaceous Swedish beauty who snuck out of his hotel room earlier that morning. Despite his anger over the way she left, the duo’s chemistry comes through, landing them roles opposite each other. An award-winning stage actor in her home country, Maria easily transfers her talents to television. She and Peter spend the next several years working closely together and developing a deep friendship as they film on a remote Irish island. Once filming ends, they rekindle the passion ignited on that one night years ago. A jaunty tune opens and closes Dade’s third installment in the “Spoiler Alert” series (following All the Feels), performed by returning narrator Kelsey Navarro. Characters are easily distinguishable as Navarro gives each a unique voice befitting their personalities. The few distinct accents are well performed, though the strength of Maria’s voice occasionally fluctuates; however, this small flaw does little to distract the listener from the couple’s developing love story. Navarro adds to the overall listening experience by believably narrating scenes of high emotion.
VERDICT Recommended, particularly for collections where the author’s works are popular.
