While the first few Beach View books were engaging and full of action, these last two are a bit Mills and Boon. Lots of happy romances, handsome square chinned men and lovely young women. Although great to hear about the old characters I would prefer a bit more tension and, yes, unhappiness again...
I buy audible books to relax. The narrator's abrupt and gabbled style spoiled the story for ne, will avoid in future
