The Mysterious and Amazing Blue Billings by Lily Morton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The writing wasn't perfect, but I absolutely loved this book. There are times, honestly, when the little tense errors or issues with telling, rather than showing just are a non-issue because the story is so engrossing and the characters are so lovable. This was one of those cases. The 'mystery' aspect wasn't all that mysterious, because I knew pretty quickly what was happening, but I loved Lily Morton's way of telling the story, of adding in suspense and action, and interweaving the slow-burn romance. It was delightful.
Favourite scene (and one that choked me up) was when Levi was dancing in his kitchen.
As for the narration in the audiobook, it was amazing. Joel Leslie is my absolute favourite narrator. He does accents so very well, and moves seamlessly between accents when characters are talking. I swear, he's a wizard of voices. Love, love, LOVE him.
