This retro, hilarious '80s workplace rom-com is nimbly delivered by author/narrator Karen White (Grey is her pseudonym) and Joe Arden. Research analyst Kate Bishop is romance averse until she encounters bartender/Shakespearean actor Will. Kate's querulous voice, crafted by White, contrasts her awkward social encounters in a male-dominated field and her feminist ideals. Arden dials back his signature confidence to tap into Will's vulnerability over a childhood trauma and new acting opportunities. Shakespearean dialogue and an intense acting scene display Arden's superb performance skills. While neither narrator attempts a Boston accent, the story is peppered with pointed local references and '80s conventions. Answering machine messages with sound effects are delivered by Eve Passeltiner. C.A. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2020]
