Billie Fulford-Brown narrates this enemies-to-lovers romance that is above all an ode to skilled professionals doing their jobs amazingly well. AudioFile’s Emily Connelly tells host Jo Reed why she loved escaping into this audiobook by Lucy Parker, a new sequel to The Austen Playbook. Set in London, the story centers on two competitive television hosts, Sabrina and Nick, who have to combine their efforts to help revive their station’s failing morning show—or lose their jobs. Fulford-Brown perfectly captures the way Sabrina and Nick’s relationship shifts from frosty to passionate and ramps up the on-air and behind-the-scenes chemistry between the characters.
