Journalist Anna McCall has never understood people who collect things. So, when she's asked to interview local collector and eccentric, William Kitson, she isn't exactly looking forward to the experience. But she soon falls under the charm of Fox Hill Manor as well as its owner, even though she thinks there's something very strange about the collection there.

This was my first Victoria Connelly story in audiobook form and I wasn't sure it would work. How wrong I was. Jan Cramer is a wonderful narrator. She's eloquent, and emotive .You can lose yourself in a different world as she brings a wondeful, moving story to life.

The Secret of You is a beautiful story, with just a hint of mystery, as is typical of a Victoria Connelly novel and I adored every second of my time with Anna, Libby, William, Mrs Boothby and Meg.

Climb into Charlene the Chevelle for a fast-paced story about a girl who is tough enough to survive and tender enough to learn to trust in love.

Having read The Boots My Mother Gave Me last year and falling completely in love with the story and the characters, I couldn't wait to hear it brought to life! Brooklyn James is the perfect narrator for her own book. She is exactly how I picture Harley in my mind and her voice is so full of emotion.

I loved the song clips included too. It was great to hear the lyrics as they were intended to sound and the songs themselves were beautiful and haunting.

This is just the most perfect audiobook I could imagine!
