Claire Danner Crispin's sweet nature gets her in trouble when a guilty conscience prompts her to accept the leadership role in a huge charity fund-raiser. Before long, Claire's already overbooked life has spun out of control, emotionally and logistically. Isabel Keating provides the perfect voice for Claire—young, fresh, and sparkling. She gives Claire's Irish sister-in-law a realistic accent and offers believable portrayals of all the story's female characters. Keating's males come across less convincingly, particularly Claire's husband, who receives a thick but unidentifiable accent. On balance, however, the story flows as gently as a summer breeze, carrying the listener to its refreshing conclusion. R.L.L. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2008]
