ARE YOU LISTENING?: 40 LOVE AUDIO BOOK PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

WELCOME TO BOOKIN' WITH BINGO'S" 
ARE YOU LISTENING? DAY" 
I AM EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE TODAY'S
AUDIO BOOK CHOICE.....
GIVEAWAY ENDED
40 LOVE
BY MADELEINE WICKHAM
ABOUT THE AUDIO BOOK:
Everyone wins this game of literary tennis, a comedy of manners about envy in which Wickham skewers the nouveau riche. At their country estate, Patrick Chance and his wife host a weekend tennis party. As four couples gather on the sunny terrace, it seems obvious who among them is succeeding, and who is falling behind. But by the end of the party, nothing will be quite as certain. While the couples’ children amuse themselves with pony rides and rehearsals for a play, the adults suffer a series of personal revelations and crises. Wickham’s nonstop action reveals at every turn that matters may not be as they seem, and in the end one thing is crystal clear: the weekend is about anything but tennis.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Madeleine Wickham is the author of several acclaimed novels, including A Desirable Residence, Cocktails for Three, Sleeping Arrangements and The Wedding Girl. As Sophie Kinsella, she has written a number of bestsellers including the Shopaholic series, Twenties Girl, Remember Me?, The Undomestic Goddess, and Can You Keep a Secret? Confessions of a Shopaholic was made into a major motion picture starring Isla Fisher and Hugh Dancy. Born in London, Wickham studied at New College, Oxford. She lives in London with her husband and family. 
PRAISE FOR 40 LOVE:
“Narrator Katherine Kellgren gives a masterful performance, creating distinctive character voices and alternating effortlessly among…Wickham’s colorful cast. Kellgren’s narration is marvelous, inhabiting characters’ states of mind, shifting among anxiety, fury, and guilt as the book’s POV changes. A delightful performance not to be missed.” 
Publishers Weekly, starred review

“First published as The Tennis Party in the 1990s, this breezy work skewers the moneyed set with dark, delicious humor’ 
The Star_Telegram

“For pure entertainment, consider the audio book, 40 Love, by Madeleine Wickham. This New York Times bestselling author sets her fictional story around a tennis weekend at a couple’s country home in England. Drama unfolds around the characters on and off the court, and it makes car time go quickly.” 
Times of Trenton

“[Katherine Kellgren] gave a nuanced performance that gave everyone in the group of characters a very distinct identity. Because of this, I’m pretty certain that I enjoyed listening to it far more than I would have enjoyed reading it.” 
5 Minutes for Books

“I don’t think I would have enjoyed this book near as much in written form…[Katherine Kellgren’s] accents are spot on, reflecting ever character’s personality and nuances. Each character sprang to life and immediately formed a picture in my mind. Her intonation and inflection give the story life and verve. It is such a treat to listen to her narrate.” 
A Bookworm’s World
“Wickham aces the shallow rich...in this light, fast-paced novel.”  
— Publishers Weekly
“This featherweight comedy delivers a decided satisfaction.” 
—Kirkus

I love page turners but if it is audio, is it a disk turner?

This seems to be full of humor which is good for all of us.
