When a Child is Born was a free short Audible in Jodi Taylor’s The Chronicles of St. Mary’s series. Taylor really seems to enjoy writing these little Christmas tales, and I’ve enjoyed them as well. Technically speaking, When a Child is Born is book 2.5 in the series. From my own experience, a reader or listener can jump into Taylor’s shorts anywhere along the way.
When a Child is Born is filled with Taylor’s trademark sarcasm and humor. The sassy level of her protagonist, Max, is set at high the whole way through. I found myself chuckling and laughing out loud from the beginning and right through to the end.
Zara Ramm’s narration and delivery skills are impeccable. As I’ve noticed in other Audibles, the narrator is an important factor in the enjoyment of the story.
Shorts like this help me discover new authors, whose full-length books find their way onto my TBR.
