Opted for this abridged version after reading reviews about the different narrators. This narrator was fantastic. I am curious what I missed in the hour less time on this one though.
Overall, I did like it. Especially the recipes and the imagery. I would have preferred more of a HEA but this isn’t really that type of book. Very good though and worth the read/listen.
