The Sweet Spot

S. & S. Audio. Jan. 2023. 13:12 hrs. ISBN 9781797149806. $23.99. F
Lauren’s art career is an overnight success, and her young family has just moved into their ideal historic New York home, but she is about to set off a chain of events she could not imagine. Her life chaotically collides with that of Melinda, whose divorce Lauren inadvertently incited, and Olivia, whom Melinda then got fired in her post-divorce path of destruction. Despite these disastrous circumstances, the three join together to care for a baby that Melinda’s ex abandons on her doorstep. Assisted by the unconventional assemblage of the Sweet Spot, a bar in the basement of Lauren’s brownstone, they prove that it sometimes takes Greenwich Village to raise a child. Poeppel (Musical Chairs) presents a charming story of chosen family and female friendships. A full cast of eight talented narrators portray an array of engaging characters and their amusing misadventures. Their combined efforts create a quirky and compelling listening experience.
VERDICT This audio will appeal to listeners seeking a refreshing relationship fiction in the form of a funky, feel-good Three Men and a Baby fiasco. Recommended for fans of Jojo Moyes, Lisa Roe, and Carolyn Prusa.
