Kristen DiMercurio's dynamic performance takes listeners to Baltimore, where Billy Perkins owns Charm City Rocks, an independent record store. Margot Hammer, Billy's long-time celebrity crush, was the drummer of a now defunct rock band. Their first encounter, orchestrated by Billy's son, Caleb, is a total disaster but eventually leads to an endearing romance. The story is told in the third person from multiple points of view, and DiMercurio switches smoothly among characters and accents. She portrays Billy as slightly awkward but charming, Margot as apprehensive but open, and Caleb as energetic and youthful. She also delivers a combination British-American accent for Margot's daughter, Poppy. This audiobook hits all the right notes for a romance that takes place later in life but also works as family listening. E.P. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2023]
