This lively listening experience about a young woman's journey to piece together her husband's past includes musical interludes, typewriter return clicks, and audience laughter. Twenty-six-year-old aspiring screenwriter Advika's whirlwind romance with Oscar-winning producer Julian, age 72, becomes embittered by red flags that cause Advika increasing concern. And that's before Julian's late first wife bequeaths "Julian's latest child bride" a million dollars and a single film reel--IF she divorces Julian. The possibility entices Advika as she learns about the wives who preceded her. Narrator Rukhmani Desai's pacing complements the audiobook's foreshadowing, and her sighs and speech cadence are expertly used to portray emotion. Desai uses a stilted voice for a character's wooden acting to hilarious effect. A.L.C. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2023]
