Mind the Gap, Dash & Lily audiobook
Dash and Lily were feeling closer than ever.... It's just too bad they're now an ocean apart. After Dash gets accepted to Oxford University and Lily stays in New York to take care of her dog-walking business, the devoted couple are struggling to make a long distance relationship work. And when Dash breaks the news that he won't be coming home for Christmas, Lily makes a decision: If Dash can't come to her, she'll join him in London.
It's a perfect romantic gesture...that spins out of Lily's control. Soon Dash and Lily are feeling more of a gap between them, even though they're in the same city. Will London bring them together again - or will it be their undoing?
What worked: I really love this series! The audio book does a great job of switching back and forth from Dash and Lily's POV that feels realistic and true to their characters. Lily is the eternal optimist and Dash's excitment of getting into Oxford slowly turns to disallusion. The pacing throughout December in London is fast and filled with the quirkness that readers have learned to expect. The count down to Christmas in England is not only shown through both Dash and Lily's POV, but also has them coming to terms on what paths they need to further persue. Their separation and then later reunion isn't what they thought it would be. I also love the addition of the hip grandmother and other British Christmas traditions.
Engaging, hilarious at times, coming of age tale where it's okay to question your path. Filled with lots of Christmas cheer and fun.
