A couple whose marriage is on the rocks, escapes to the Highlands of Scotland to reconnect. At the end of the holiday, they’ll either stay together, or part for good. Shout out to Scotland for providing the atmospheric chills, but then all remaining credit soundly goes to Feeney. This was a cracking good read with an EXQUISITELY delivered reveal! I haven’t been this surprised by a novel in ages! I highly recommend the audio version of this book.Let me shout that a bit louder for those of you in the back: I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOOOOOK!!!!Kathy

This was just so darned delightful. I loved Moon, and her sharp retorts (she comes up with the best insults!), as well as her determination to succeed at her goals even though she constantly doubts herself. She and her twin sister, Star, are opposites in all ways. Star is the beautiful one, and Moon is not. Star is loved, and Moon is not. Star is a social influencer, and Moon, well, you'll find out. While there is a great enemies to lovers romance, with a wonderful cinnamon bun, Santiago, to me, this is more about Moon's family dynamics and how she reconciles them with her life. I listened to this and the narrator is fantastic.Audrey
Absolutely amazing. The audio book is perfectly narrated by Adjoa Andoh. Her singular voice brings each of the characters to life, channeling their personalities, quirks, accents, etc. Marvelous job. Powerful and elegantly written by Groff. I loved this book so much I am tempted to start it all over again.Kristine

I cannot overstate this enough- I love mysteries and thrillers as audiobooks!! What started off as a pretty basic thriller just GOT me by the end because the unfolding plot is able to creep up on you. I was really taken by Feeney's 2020 release His & Hers and with Rock Paper Scissors, we again have the sultry Richard Armitage and cunning Stephanie Racine narrating. The two do such a great job building suspense and I can wholeheartedly recommend any audiobook they narrate...A great, engrossing listen for thriller fans!Kimi

You can always expect tenderness and honesty from Helen Hoang. Her characters’ struggles are often real struggles that people can relate to. The journey Anna goes through to love herself is just as, if not more, powerful than her love story with Quan. Featuring dual narration from Natalie Naudus and Brian Nishii, both of whom did a stellar job evoking the emotions of the characters. Beautiful, sad, and life-affirming. I can’t recommend this book enough!Sofie
A slow-moving crime noir set against the political backdrop of 1970’s Mexico City. The lives of a secretary and a hit man converge when an art student goes missing. Gisela Chipe did an excellent job maintaining the atmosphere throughout the narration. Utterly intriguing and cinematic.Sofie
