The Unsinkable Greta James

Penguin Random House Audio. Mar. 2022. 8:15 hrs. ISBN 9780593506790. $20. F
Thirtysomething and newly famous, Greta James has everything going for her. Her music career is taking off, and she has a tour on the horizon. That is, until an emotional performance after the death of her mother leaves her questioning her future as a musician. At the insistence of her brother, Greta joins her father on an Alaskan cruise that will set them on the path to healing both fresh and long-festering wounds and will introduce her to Ben, a charming historian. Along the way, Greta will grow as a person, meet some fans, and, ultimately, decide which path she wants to take in life. This new novel from Smith (Field Notes on Love) will speak to those who first read her YA novels (The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight) as teens but have grown up enough to understand more about the complexities of life and love. Award-winning actor and narrator Mae Whitman brings Greta to life, making her sound both strong and vulnerable.
VERDICT A must-have for any new adult romance collection. Will appeal to patrons looking for a novel with depth and well-developed characters.
