With her warm and compassionate voice, narrator Piper Goodeve makes this middle school audiobook resonate. Meg and Beatrix have been best friends since kindergarten, but that all changes when new girl Hazel moves to town and is assigned to work with Meg on a project about honeybees. Meg must discover her own voice and figure out who she is, and Goodeve's skillful portrayal helps her do that. Both the story and her heartfelt narration are clear and accessible. Her realistic tone and emotional nuances capture a wide range of feelings as Meg muddles through the complexities of changing friendships. E.P. © AudioFile [Published: APRIL 2020]
Piper Goodeve is the ideal narrator for this coming-of-age audiobook. Goodeve conveys every degree of Evie's perceptiveness, regret, and intelligence as she yearns for a more settled life. Listeners will worry about her as she befriends the wealthy Rook and when Evie's father involves her in his drug dealing. An accomplished and well-paced narration of an impressive debut audiobook.

In this moving audiobook, narrator Piper Goodeve superbly guides listeners through the complicated emotional journey of Charlotte, a 29-year-old widow. Their slow-burn romance is evidenced through Goodeve's rendering of Charlotte's nervous energy and uncertain tone and Brian's thoughtful, slightly enigmatic demeanor. Vibrant supporting characters, especially Charlotte's quirky, kindhearted roommate, Casey, and her mother, Jean, with her delightful Brooklyn accent, help Charlotte reassess her past and reinvigorate her personal life.

Piper Goodeve delivers a clear and steady first-person narration of this charming story based on true events. Goodeve grunts as grumpy Mr. Hartwell, slurs in a Southern twang as the town drunk, and uses a steely voice for Drew. She is humorous as Bree's cheery party girl roommate with a penchant for dirty puns and as Bree's flamboyant neighbors with their "Oh, honey!" remarks. Goodeve is as convincing delivering a Siri-type voice giving weather reports as she is portraying a sarcastic and whining teen. A.L.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]

"Piper did a tremendous job capturing Allison's humor and tone. It's almost insane how much she sounds like my internal voice for Allison." Madeleine Roux, Author, Allison Hewitt is Trapped
"Her voice is perfect for Allison, not the sultry seductress, or the stoic stateswomen, but just a solid everywoman. Her characterizations are strong as well, whether it is the soft English tones on the radio, or an ornery horny doctor, she finds the right tone for them, without making them into caricatures." - Bob Reiss, The Guilded Earlobe
"Piper made every character feel brand new to me (and that's saying something, considering how much time I spent thinking and writing about them). I loved the way she voiced Hannah -- it was like she intuitively understood her character the same way I did. I had never truly "heard" her voice before - in terms of not being able to separate it from my own - but Piper made her feel distinct and real and nuanced. It was like I was seeing her as a separate entity (from myself) for the first time." -Kelly Quindlen, Author, Her Name in the Sky
"Piper sent this audio over the top in my opinion. She breathed life in to the story and elevated it which is always the sign of a great narrator to me. Piper's ability to be a vocal chameleon and bring realism and emotion to both male and female characters is uncommon in the audiobook world and makes me seek her books out." - Lydia Rella, Aural Fixation, London Bound by Amy Daws
