It happens quietly one August morning. As dawn's shimmering light drenches the humid Iowa air, two families awaken to find their little girls have gone missing in the night. Now these families are tied by the question of what happened to their children. And the answer is trapped in the silence of unspoken family secrets.

Jack and Michael Whitehall perform their laugh-out-loud autobiography Him & Me as a unique dual-voiced comedy audiobook, filled with ad-libs, asides, and comic dialogue to create a uniquely funny listen. Jack and Michael open up the rich and plentiful family lore archives on topics such as Jack’s nanny’s enormous feet, Michael’s lifetime touchline ban from Jack’s prep-school and the Whitehall collection of downright weird and eccentric relatives.

An unabridged downloadable audio edition of the new memoir by Coleen Nolan. Coleen's first memoir was embraced by the nation, inspired by how she coped with personal hardships and charmed by her honesty and humour. Her life since has been splashed across the tabloids: Her sensational departure from Loose Women, the difficulties in her marriage, the famous feud between the Nolan sisters and the tragic death of her sister Bernie.

With two jobs and two children, Jess Thomas does her best day after day. But it’s hard on your own. And sometimes you take risks you shouldn’t. Because you have to.... Jess’ gifted, quirky daughter Tanzie is brilliant with numbers, but without a helping hand she’ll never get the chance to shine. And Nicky, Jess’ teenage stepson, can’t fight the bullies alone. Sometimes Jess feels like they’re sinking.... Into their lives comes Ed Nicholls, a man whose life is in chaos, and who is running from a deeply uncertain future.

If you could sum up The One Plus One in three words, what would they be?

Totally brilliant story!

What other book might you compare The One Plus One to, and why?

I don't think a comparison is fair in this instance, this book is superb. It's warm, well characterized, great story. Loved it.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I enjoyed the fact it was narrated by different actors for each character really added to the story.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Loved it all.

Any additional comments?

Read this it's fab!!

Well hello to you dear audiobook browser. Now I have your attention it would be rude if I didn't tell you a little about my literary feast. So, here is the thing: is it just me or does anyone else find that adulthood offers no refuge from the unexpected horrors, peculiar lack of physical coordination and sometimes unexplained nudity, that accompanied childhood and adolescence? I am proud to say I have a wealth of awkward experiences - from school days to life as an office temp - and here I offer my 18-year-old self (and I hope you, too, dear listener) some much needed caution and guidance on how to navigate life's rocky path.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Perhaps more suited to die hard Miranda fans.

What will your next listen be?

Something completely different.

What three words best describe Miranda Hart’s performance?

Off the wall.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Is It Just Me??

I felt just too much silliness. But perhaps it's me..
