Something Wilder

S. & S. Audio. May 2022. 9:27 hrs. ISBN 9781797140063. $19.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
The pseudonymous writing duo behind The Soulmate Equation successfully veer off the beaten path with this entertaining romantic adventure. Voiced by Patti Murin and Jon Root, Lily and Leo are a young couple who meet and fall in love one summer when Leo is working as a ranch hand. A family emergency has him rushing back home to New York, and they never speak again. Fast-forward 10 years, Murin gives Lily a well-earned feisty voice while Root performs Leo with a quiet and sensitive demeanor. Both narrators hint at the passion still simmering just below the surface when Lily unexpectedly becomes Leo’s wilderness tour guide. Murin and Root will keep listeners glued to their headphones with their fast-paced performances in this unconventional romance filled with gun fights, car chases, and treasure hunts. Both narrators are also perfectly in sync with the secondary voices: Nicole’s twangy and take-no-prisoners attitude; Terry’s smug and creepy energy; Walt’s innocent and anxious nature; and Brad’s loud and outgoing characterization.
VERDICT Filled with twists, turns, and puzzles, this is more action-packed than a usual second-chance romance but is still a must-have for collections.
