Accidentally Yours

Susan Mallery, read by Therese Plummer. Brilliance Audio, , unabridged, eight CDs, 9 hrs., $19.99 ISBN 978-1-4418-7631-7

Spunky, determined single mom Carrie tricks billionaire Nathan into donating $15 million to scientific research to find a cure for her son’s fatal disease. Infuriated at being manipulated, Nathan insists Carrie accompany him to social events for publicity purposes. Predictably, they start out disliking each other but end up falling in love. Despite this by-the-numbers plot, Theresa Plummer’s lively, effervescent narration elevates the story and creates a truly entertaining audiobook. With every line, Plummer sounds like a close friend, eager to confide a personal story and reveal fascinating tidbits of information. Her bubbly, you-won’t-believe-what-happened-next enthusiasm is contagious and draws the listener into this breezy romance. And while some of the voices Plummer creates for the book’s characters miss the mark—her male voices often sounds similar and her German accent is not convincing—her emotional expressiveness, enthusiasm, and great comedic timing make this a delightful listen. An HQN Books paperback. (July)
