A perfect moment

This is an exquisite book from one of my favourite authors, beautifully brought to life in a wonderful performance by Daniela. I could rate it highly enough or recommend it enough.

Great collection

Daniela Acitelli did a wonderful job of narrating this collection of Diane Marina's short stories. The stories themselves are fun and varied in a progressive way that makes the progress through the book more and more entertaining. The title so nicely describes content of each story. They are all so softly romantic. I am generally not much for short stories yet I highly recommend this collection to anyone who enjoys women loving women books who needs feel good book.
