The remarkably talented Golden Voice narrator Soneela Nankani performs Farah Heron’s feel-good romance, Kamila Knows Best, flawlessly. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly discuss the fun of listening to Heron’s contemporary take on Austen’s Emma, set in Toronto. Kamila Hussain is living the perfect life, with friends, family, a career she loves, Bollywood movie nights, and a longtime friend and brother-in-law, Rohan Nasser, who is always there by her side. She’s also a matchmaking whiz (or so she thinks) who hasn’t found her own ideal match and is fine with that. But why is she suddenly so aware of Rohan’s forearms? Nankani is a wizard at producing emotive character voices that sound authentic and distinct. This is the perfect pairing of author and narrator, and a friends-to-lovers romance not to miss.
