Don’t Cry for Me (Midnight in Manhattan #1) – Rachel Lacey & Lori Prince (narrator)

On a backdrop of book pages, an iPhone with the cover of Don't Cry for Me by Rachel Lacey, narrated by Lori Prince. At the bottom of the image, a strip of torn paper with a quote: "This book has a special place in my heart." and a url:

Don’t Cry for Me was my first ever Rachel Lacey book, the one that made me fall in love with her characters and stories and the overall loveliness of her books. I love them all but this one will always hold a special place in my heart. Reacquainting myself with Josie and Eve, with Kaya and Adam, with the theatre kittens, was pure pleasure.

Listening to an audiobook when you already know the book is completely different from discovering the story through narration, anticipation is added to the mix. In this case, having recently experienced Lauren’s story – who, when I first read this book, was “just” a secondary character, one who was important to the story but not one the reader knew much about – increased the anticipation and brought even more feelings. Lori Prince‘s narration is a little uneven but there are a lot more things I love about it than not. I know a lot of listeners associate her with comedy but to me, she truly shines in drama. I have a weakness for unexpected vulnerability and she breaks my heart in those moments.

And, of course, now I want a kitten. 4.5⭐️

Read my review of Don’t Cry for Me, the book.
