Narrator Carly Robins delivers on the cozy charm of Aguirre's roommate romance. When Iris inherits a purple Victorian house in St. Claire, Illinois, it's a fresh start, far away from her judgmental, magical family. Robins chronicles Iris's search for roommates, creating unique voices for crotchety Henry Dale, garrulous Sally, youthful Rowan, and considerate Eli, who knew Iris as a child and harbors strong feelings for her. As Iris builds a "found family," Robins organically integrates Aguirre's messages of charity, tolerance, and LGBTQIA-friendly spaces. Robins expresses Iris's financial worries and doubts about her self-worth in tones that are both realistic and reassuring. This audio is an appealing mix of small-town personalities and contemporary themes with a pinch of magic. C.A. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2023]
