"I always knew how professional you were, you're always in a great mood, always giving and caring as an actor, but I had no idea the depth of your talent which is... unbelievable. You could go anywhere.

You're like a star in the making."

what people are saying

"Debut audiobook narrator Cabanela's expressive performance imbues Lila's first-person point of view with energy

and humor ...Twenty-somethings' banter, aunties' gossip, and Lila's highs and lows are all effortlessly conveyed.

Cabanela shines when narrating Lila's lively family interactions, skillfully varying inflections, intonations, and speech patterns to voice the many characters, infusing each with a distinct personality. This promising start to a new series will delight cozy mystery and foodie enthusiasts, and the solid voice performance will leave audio fans anticipating what Cabanela serves up next."
