    *Starred Review* Whelan (My Oxford Year, 2018), draws on her experience narrating audiobooks in this poignant and charming novel about two famous audiobook performers who fall in love during their dual narration of a romance novel. Seven years ago, Los Angeles native Sewanee Chester walked into a plane's propeller and lost her right eye and acting career. She is now comfortable with her eye patch but has never come to terms with her loss, convinced that she is ugly, second-best, an afterthought. Whelan sensitively explores Sewanee's growing acceptance of self. Sewanee had switched to narrating general fiction, but to pay for her grandmother's assisted living care, she reluctantly returns to romance. New Yorker Nick Sullivan is an American who grew up in Dublin and has narrated four hundred romance novels over five years. Fans swooning over his rich, resonant voice are legendary, but Nick isn't emotionally invested in his work. Music is his first love, and he wants to get back to it. Much of the novel consists of pseudonymous emails and text messages, in which Nick and Sewanee eventually realize how emotionally vested they are in each other. The shock of their discovery of one another's real identity and how they reconstruct their relationship is where Whelan's skillfully nuanced writing truly shines. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
