Absolutely loved learning about the real history of magic and influences on the Harry Potter world. The majority of the narrators and experts were fantastic. They were informatiVe and enthusiastic about their subject matter and it really drew your attention. The description of the exhibitions was thorough so I could picture what was being described against what I saw when I went to the exhibition. The only negative was that I struggled to hear one of the experts as they spoke in a low quiet voice-almost a whisper- and the recording didn't compensate for it. Other than that, completely amazing

absolutely love this story, my only gripe is the narrator's voice for Sapphira. I kept thinking of the cookie monster. I eventually grew used to it though.

Loved listening to this book and both performers are fantastic to listen to (I highly recommend listening to anything performed by either of them) the story is wonderful and you find yourself fully invested in the relationship...and a massive urge to constantly eat cake!

Absolutely fantastic story which will make you laugh at the most inappropriate times. Listen out for way too much information on 'tugging' and I challenge you not to laugh your head off. As always Julia Kent blends the hilarious with soul searching insights that make you fall in love with each and every character. Amy McFadden is an excellent performer and really gets the character of Amanda and Andrew my only question is over her Scottish and Australian accents but that was around 1 minute of the entire story. I'm now planning on starting the series all over again! Cannot wait

These are two of my favourite performers alongside my favourite author. This story is gut clutching, leg crossingly hilarious with Sultans and fire ants where no fire ants should never be. But alongside this is the newly wed couple learning to navigate their new roles, one needing to protect their bubble and the other determined to consummate the marriage no matter what! love listening to this book butt very dangerous when driving and laughing to that extent!

This is a brilliant book which I have read a few times before and shouted. Sebastian York's voice took it to a whole other level. I would happily listen to the dictionary read by him!

Absolutely adore this book. Completely hilarious and such a brilliant narration. I'm now seeing tartan everywhere! Such a touching history with the lead characters while chaos reigns in the background.

There is something about the mayhem of Shannon as a sexy elf, Declan as hot Santa trying to control a mall full of high strung mothers and...Agnes...that means it's impossible not to laugh, giggle and smile. Brilliantly narrated and I can't wait for the next in the series.

What made the experience of listening to Shopping for a Billionaire the most enjoyable?

The fact that I couldn't control my laughter at certain points in the story. Warning, this book is not to be read while running as laughing on a treadmill is a health hazard

What other book might you compare Shopping for a Billionaire to, and why?

Shopping for a Billionaire differs from the crowd of romance novels with it's stomach tightening laughter scenes. The blend of comedy and romance is spot on.

What does Tanya Eby bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Although not the voice I had imagined when I originally read the book, the expressiveness of Tanya Eby's voice especially around Marie and the sheer horror it conveys when she is being inappropriate is priceless!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes!
