Investigative reporter Isabel Vincent first had dinner with her elderly and recently widowed neighbor as a favor to his daughter. In this short memoir, narrated by Elise Arsenault, the author recalls how one meal with Edward evolved into a regular date and details the ways their unlikely friendship helped them both move past personal sorrows. Although it will be easy for listeners to respond to the charming Edward and even crave his gourmet home-cooked meals, the audiobook is marred by Arsenault's choppy delivery. It's particularly disconcerting in some of the emotional scenes. She also stumbles over several foreign accents, breaking the listener's attention. Regardless of the flaws, however, everyone will finish this audiobook wishing they had a friend like Edward. C.B.L. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2016]
