The Wrong Suitcase by Laura Jane Williams

This is a book narrated by the author herself, and she did an excellent job. It is a novella, a thing I realised only halfway into the narrative. Despite its length, I found myself feeling like I got a whole book worth of romance.
We have two lead characters who have alternating chapters to voice their own feelings about the ongoing events. Izzy is at her friend’s destination wedding as a single eligible person, as is Sam, but he is more recently single. Both of their paths cross with a misdirected suitcase. The events are not very original but simply told and hilarious when you hear them happening. I could feel their respective frustration as well.
Izzy and Sam are nice people, making it easy to cheer up their meeting and subsequent getting together. It was a quick listen, and I would listen to any other book narrated by the author because that was the best part of the work; it really brought the narrative to life, as did the accents. Their supporting casts of friends and family were highly entertaining, adding a lot of colour and flavour to the plotline.
I obviously cannot write a review longer than the work, so I will stop with the fact that I recommend it to anyone looking for a quick romantic read/listen.
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers but the review is entirely based on my own listening experience.
