Audio Review: Spring Strings By: Lily Morton Narrated by: Joel Leslie

Listening to Spring Strings was like revisiting old friends.

From the blurb:

Malachi Booth is a supermodel. He’s used to moving about the world, sleeping with whoever takes his
fancy, and watching the money roll in. The last place he expects to find himself is on a run-down farm in Cornwall, but a bad bout of bronchitis means that he’s stuck there. The only compensation for this dismal state of affairs is that the farmer is very good looking, even if he’s the grumpiest person that Malachi has ever met. 

Cadan Landry’s farm has been in his family for hundreds of years but that doesn’t make it any easier to make ends meet. As a consequence, Cadan could be called grumpy. Most men would consider a supermodel collapsing at their feet while dressed in the skimpiest pair of briefs ever made to be a sign of good fortune. Cadan just resents the fact that the young man is taking up space in his cow field. 

These two men are from different worlds, but can they ever meet in the middle?  

From best-selling author Lily Morton comes a novella about snarky models, misconceptions, and finding a home in the most unlikely of places.

Jacquie's Review:

It was so good to get to listen to Spring Strings, like being back with old friends.

I'd almost forgotten about Mal's sharp wit and his playful banter with Caden. Really, Mal is one of my favourite Lily Morton characters. Caden isn't a doormat either, he gives back to Mal.

The whole thing is very sweet, funny, full of fantastic characters, and a lot of healing. Both Caden and Mal have past issues to get over, but they are fantastic together.

The Cornwall setting deserves a mention as it is skillfully described without taking up much of the novella. I felt like I could picture it easily.

I don't think it would be a Lily Morton book without Joel Leslie narrating. This is a trademark performance from him, making it easy to sink into the story.

Perfect for when you just need an uncomplicated story and an pleasing voice to listen to.
