I had a nice surprise waiting for me when I got home today--advanced copies of the CLEAR TO LIFT audio book! I'm SO thrilled that Angela Dawe narrated, just like she did for HOVER. She was amazing in HOVER. Just amazing. I can't wait to listen to her in CLEAR TO LIFT. Thank you, Angela, and thanks also to Brilliance Audio who produced!
