Audiobook Review (& author giveaway): Relationship Resuscitation by Jennifer Theriot


The Juniper Court Series
by Jennifer Theriot

Genre: 'Seasoned' Romantic Comedy
Book Publication Date: February 28, 2018

Meet Phillip & Jayne Miller, original homeowners on Juniper Court. He's a successful attorney; she's a flourishing blogger. Head over heels in love and approaching 50, their relationship needs a little jump start. With the Miller's twin girls married and moved away from Sunview, Phillip and Jayne decide it's time to focus on resuscitating their relationship, complete with spicing up their neglected sex life. When competition between the two sets in, it becomes a full out game to see who can one-up the other trying new things. Ah, yes. Life on Juniper Court gets interesting... and sometimes embarrassing. Be careful what you wish for and where you stick your nose. Sometimes keeping up with the Joneses--or in this case, the Sullivans can have consequences.

My Thoughts

At 2.5 hours, there is not much time to delve deeper into plot points yet Relationship Resuscitation offers a complete story. Written from the character Jayne Miller’s point of view, we are taken on a journey as she recounts her life from when she and Phillip first meet, right up to the current day. Their life is interesting, and interspersing the more serious times, there is plenty of humour both from our couple as well as the people that surround them. 

My one small complaint about the story is that their life did seem too good to be true at times. Everything seemed to fall into place quite effortlessly and the challenges seemed to be little more than blips. Even if the story does push the bounds of reality, it was refreshing to listen to a story about a couple well past the first flush of youth.

M Capehart does an excellent job in narrating this book. I really enjoyed the tone, pacing and her ability to bring the characters to life. This was the first time I had listened to a narration by M Capehart and I would definitely listen to her again.


M. Capehart has been narrating since 2008, and has over 60 audiobooks to her credit. Her childhood was spent performing in theater and music, and studying Spanish. She is adept at voicing both male and female characters, and a wide variety of accents and ages. She has received excellent reviews on her romance narrations, and stays very busy narrating this genre. A dedicated sound-proofed recording booth helps ensure her recordings are clean and require very little treatment in post-production. M records on a high quality AudioTechnica 4040 condenser mic and annually hires professional sound engineers to evaluate her sound.

In addition to adhering to the highest technical quality, M also takes performance training classes each year, in order to learn new methods, and hone her narration skills. A major component of her continuing professional education is attending the annual Audio Publisher Association Convention.
