Today I am taking part in the Audiobook Blog Blitz for Love, Loss and Life In Between by Suzanne Rogerson. It was narrated by Sandie Keane. This audiobook was released in January and I am sharing my review.
About the Audiobook:
This collection of short stories gives a glimpse into life, love, loss, and the inexplicable in between. Includes themes of grief, finding hope, second chances, facing the consequences of your actions, and getting help from the unlikeliest of places.
- As Cecilia helps the dying, she questions what happens to their spirits. But is she ready to find out?
- Can a mother’s race through the New Forest save her son?
- Will visiting a medium bring Christina the closure she needs?
- Can an intruder help an old lady with her loneliness?
- Will the start of another wet and miserable Monday morning end with Maeve’s happy ever after.

I enjoy short stories, and had the opportunity to go on the blog blitz for this one, so I signed up! This is an audiobook blog tour and I listened to it over the course of one day.
There are 10 short stories, ranging from around 5 minutes long to up to nearly 20 minutes. It is perfect if you don’t have a lot of time for reading. As the title suggests the listener deals with several parts of life: love, loss, and life in between. Several of the stories deal with death and moving on. Rogerson did a great job with capturing the emotions of a story in just a few words!
The narrator Sandie Keane did a good job with her narration of the short stories.
I’m sure the reader or listener will find a story or two that stays with them! I did!
About the Author:
Suzanne lives in Middlesex, England with her husband, two teenagers, a crazy cocker spaniel and an adopted cat that thinks she’s the boss.
Suzanne’s writing journey began at the age of twelve when she completed her first novel. Giving up work to raise a family gave her the impetus to take her attempts at novel writing beyond the first draft, and she is lucky enough to have a husband who supports her dream – even if he does occasionally hint that she might think about getting a proper job one day.
Now an author of four novels including the Silent Sea Chronicles trilogy and her debut, Visions of Zarua, plus three short story collections, Suzanne hopes the dreaded ‘W’ word will never rear its ugly head again!
Suzanne collects books, is interested in history and enjoys wandering around castles and old ruins whilst being immersed in the past. She likes to combine her love of nature and photography on family walks, but most of all she loves to escape with a great film, binge watch TV shows, or soak in a hot bubble bath with an ice cream and a book.
About the Narrator:
Having attended Drama school in Liverpool as a teenager Sandie moved into a variety of jobs varying from Hotel Management/Merseyside Police/Motherhood to name just a few but for 25 years she taught worldwide as a Pilates Tutor Trainer.
During lockdown Sandie’s interest turned to Audiobooks and it was from there she embarked on her own journey as an Audiobook Narrator.
