Narrator Savannah Peachwood excels in her narration of the romance between free-spirited Star Shine Meadows and wealthy veterinarian Rafe Whitman. Star, who makes her living as a line sitter and a character actor, encounters Rafe at his niece's birthday party. Rafe's mother and sister-in-law have been shoving eligible women at him, so he hires Star to pose as his girlfriend. Star has a sparkling personality, and Peachwood brings a lightness to her voice reflecting this. Rafe is more somber, and Peachwood provides a good contrast to Star. As Rafe and Star grow closer, Peachwood adds warmth to her narration. Telling the story in the first person, Peachwood brings intimacy to her performance, which illuminates Star's emotional journey.
