Toby Dobbs is a nice guy. Maybe too nice of a guy. His father gave him a Victorian house for his wedding which was far too big for him after his divorce. So he rented rooms out to artists and wayward souls who needed an inexpensive place to live. Fifteen years later, he still has people living with him and taking advantage of his good nature and generosity. His across the street neighbor, Leah Pilgrim, befriends him and helps him take control of his life by getting rid of his roommates. ( )

Jewell, Lisa. Roommates Wanted. 10 CDs. unabridged. 12 hrs 8 mins. 2019. Dreamscape Media. ISBN 9781974980482.

Having been gifted a grand old Victorian house as a wedding gift but unable to fill it after his bride left him; Toby opened his home to wayward souls needing a new chance at life. Nearly fifteen years later, some of the home's residents are having trouble moving on; and that includes Toby. He has finally decided to put the house on the market and move on with his life after his oldest tenant dies and leaves him some money. However, Toby feels responsible for everyone living under his roof and has no idea how to get them to move on with their lives and move out. Thankfully Toby gets help from across the street from his gorgeous neighbor, Leah, and together they discover what it means to truly let go of the past and look towards the future. Brilliantly narrated by Helen Duff who does a superb job nailing the myriad of accents of the housemates. Readers will find themselves captivated by all the hi-jinks Toby and his housemates find themselves in as they try to navigate what the future holds. Charming, unique, and funny; Lisa Jewell is a master of contemporary fiction. - Erin Cataldi, Johnson Co. Public Library, Franklin, IN ( )

I always enjoy Lisa Jewell’s books but Glen McCready’s narration of this one made it even more enjoyable. Great voice and really clever at helping you to imagine the characters. ( )

There's not much positive I can find to say about this book - except that it came as an mp3 audiobook from my local library, allowing me to copy it onto my phone and then listen at night while I tramped through my 2-hour commute to work. It's romance. It's predictable. People change by simply deciding that they will (or with the help of a romantic partner) and live happily ever after. There's very little in this story that amounts to reality. Would suit a TV drama or soap, which could be marketed as 'heartwarming'. ( )
