loved it.

I love these books and the narrator was great in bringing it to life. Claire Lydon is one of my favorite authors. I would recommend this audio book and series.

Five stars all round

The main character this time around is Tanya, someone who I greatly disliked in the previous story. We learn a lot more about why she behaves as she does. She starts off as rude as ever but circumstances help to soften her edges and when she bumps into Sophie (literally and with amazing regularity), she becomes someone you can warm to. She still slips up but not as much. This story doesn't have quite as much comedy as the previous two, it's sad in places but it shows there is happiness to be had if we just allow people to help. Lucy Price-lewis is an excellent choice for narrator and has a very relaxing voice which I found suited the story. I found it easy to understand which character was speaking throughout.

Loved it

I loved this book, the romance is very fun and sweet. I really liked London's (the city) description and how English the chacters were. I thought Lucy Price-Lewis did a great job with the narration. I liked how much Tanya's changed from the previous book.

Clare Lydon at her best

This book had me from me the start, it made me laugh and cry as the story touched on a similar home life. It was awesome how Lydon brought Jess/Lucy into this story as well as Kate/Meg. I was glad that see that she wrote Tanya’s story and boy was it spot on

Amusing and believable

This is the third book in the series and i was surprised at how much fun this book was. Tanya and Sophie's introduction is amusing yet ironically very believable. The family dynamics involved in this story are unfortunately still a reality in toady's world. Clare Lydon does a superb job engaging the reader in this book. Lucy Price-Lewis did an outstanding job of narrating this piece. I found the discussion of "gaydar" very humorous.

Give Tanya a chance.

I wasn’t looking forward to this one because Tanya was terrible in book 2. She redeemed herself in this story. Sophie is awesome but lacks a little depth compared to meg and Lucy. In my opinion. Great book looking forward to the next couple Rachel and a straight girl!

Definitely worth a listen

Another sweet rom-com from Clare Lydon with the two mains who you are laughing at/with and rooting for from the get-go. Both women are relatable with their insecurities and a bit of additional baggage they need to work through both separately and together to reach their Happily Ever After. (Though I must admit it took me part of the book to realize Tanya was the same Tanya from This London Love since she was so remarkably different in this book, though of course I enjoyed her personality and complexity much more this time round). A great round of supporting characters with a few family members you just want to slap upside the head lol. It was my first time listening to Lucy Price-Lewis narrate but I truly hope it's not my last, she did a great job.

Wonderful Rom-Com

Once again we are treated to an amusing tale as we follow our friends ( yes friends, that's how Lydon makes us feel about her characters) from the London series. This time we watch Tanya’s life, now a high flyer in the city unfold before our eyes. Now it had been awhile since I had read the series and in the back of my head I kept hearing, " you don't like Tanya", but I thought, well there's two sides to every story, give her a fair go. However it didn't take long for me to come around to liking her. She just needed the right woman to bring the best out of her.

Then there is Sophie, ( great name by the way) who is kind of just drifting along in life whilst working in a bar and shagging her boss Helen who does not want to commit to a relationship. Sophie knows she needs to move on from Helen but just can't seem to, until one night her eyes are opened and she finally makes some drastic changes in her life. Through a series of unfortunate but amusing mishaps Tanya and Sophie are thrown together in a car journey that will change their lives.
We catch up with old friends from the previous books but it is the dogs that Sophie walks that almost steal the show. They are adorable as is this book.
I throughly enjoyed listening to Lucy Price-Lewis dulcet tones bring even more life to Lydon’s characters, if that’s possible?⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Nice romantic lesfic

I enjoyed this book. Aside from a bit of grief, this was a light sweet read. I wasn't familiar with this author prior to listening to this audiobook, but I will be looking for other works from her. The narration was well done. There is a lot of character development. Give this book a try!

Best of the series!!!

While i liked the entire series, this one was my favorite!! I absolutely adored the narrator, i could listen to her all day. I especially liked the characters and their depth. They were pretty well fleshed out and were just quirky and funny themselves. I liked their dynamic with each other as well. Overall, i thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to more of this author.

We all come with emotional baggage...

What made the experience of listening to A Girl Called London the most enjoyable?

I particularly enjoyed the narrator for this book. She suited the story well and was easy to listen to. I appreciated the author's attention to the ways that barriers to emotional connection in intimate relationships often originate with our family relationships.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Girl Called London?

I will never forget the description of Tanya slamming into Sophie in the elevator the first time. It was a crash you could see coming from a mile away and author painted it in great detail.

What about Lucy Price-Lewis’s performance did you like?

Her accent suited a story set in London (at least for this American) and she was very easy to listen to. She did not try to overly dramatize the story which I was grateful for.

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

I actually listened to it in one sitting. However, for me there was too much repetition as well as too many details about tertiary characters. I found that it detracted from the heart of the story which I felt was a good one.
