Heartfelt performances by Nancy Linari and Allyson Ryan bring out the emotional ups and downs of two women who are restarting their lives. From alternating perspectives, they portray Leanne, who is divorced, and Nichole, who is separated from Leanne's son. The narrators also take on the voices of the women's love interests. They credibly portray the ruggedness of Nichole's Rocco, a tow-truck driver, and the formidable European accent of Leanne's Nikolai, who encounters stereotypical but endearing language mishaps. Linari and Ryan complement each other's performances as they persuasively capture the protagonists' new romances and personal independence. M.F. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine
