  • "pleasantly surprised"

    Overall

    I didn't expect to like this one as much as i did. It's not the traditional chick-lit, in that it has slightly sad undertone, but i think it's what made the main character more thoughtful and likable. It made her seem less....flighty/girly than the traditional chick-lit heroine. Plus, I enjoyed the narrator, which is key for a good audiobook.

connie's greatest hits:
  • Frederica

    "not run-of-the mill chick lit"

    Overall

    This is a delightful mixture of light Austen-like comedy of manners with a dash of P.G. Wodehouse mania. There is no bodice ripping, violence, or sex (but no gritty social realism or insight either,of course) -- just "happily ever after" written (and read) well enough for the listener to suspend disbelief.

    Heyer's books have stood the test of time, while I don't think most chick lit will. If you are in need of distraction, may Heyer be as pleasant a discovery to you as she was to me. I think if you are new to this author (I am a relative newcomer but have zoomed though five novels in the last stress-filled month), then I think either "Frederica" or "Cotilion" is worth a chance download. (But warning, this stuff can be addictive -- when tired or tested, I keep thinking that I will download "just one more...")

  • The Secret Countess

    "paint-by-numbers masterpiece"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Take Marion Chesney???s Lady Rose, make her an immigrant countess and drop her "downstairs" into a Heyerite plot set post WWI rather than Georgian, Regency or Edwardian England. If this description appeals to you, you can be in for a treat.

    The history detail is thin overall and the plot predictable but (lovable!) --and so well spun that I was waiting in suspense for the predicable to happen. The characters are caricatures but it's all knot together well and remixed to please those who know and enjoy the likes of Heyer, Chesney, and Elizabteh Ashton (at her best). Yeah it???s a Heyer imitation, but not a pale one. This is good clean diversion (if you don???t try to deconstruct the fairytale of the happy social class differences!)

    I immediately searched for more novels by the late author. The other Audible offerings are from her children and YA fiction. The only other full length title that seemed non YA, Company of Swans, is not in the same class as the Secret Countess (both the adult titles would be suitable for YA who enjoy such fairytales).

    This is 3 star stuff elevated to four stars by the divine delivery of Davina Porter and the author's playful humour.

  • An Accomplished Woman

    "for fans of Heyer and Austen-homages"

    Overall

    (And you know who you are, even if you don't admit it publicly.)

    This is one of the wittiest and well-written cures for the information overloaded brain produced since Heyer.

  • The Golden Prince

    "might be a decent YA novel (for royalists)"

    Overall

    so I gave it 3 stars - I don't think it was advertised as such, however. I downloaded it becasue I like historical fiction for its setting details - and they were scant here. I thought this novel might provide some "conjectural history" on why Edward VIII became a king who would become Duke.The frustrating part is that the author invents a relationship for the young prince that could have been a springboard to conjectural pyschology for later developments - but she never really takes the plunge. The golden price at the end of the story shows little kernal of the later Duke of Windsor. If this had been teased out more, the novel would have been noteworthy. Instead it seemed just silly in many places to me.

    However, if you're looking for a reasonably priced light historical romance (without the standard cliched bodice ripping and rake-to-be-reformed), this might be worth it.

  • "A Must Read!"

    6 of 6 helpful votes

    This is a must read who-dunnit. Within minutes, Dena is shot in Maryanne's apartment and the rest of the novel is a classily woven who-done-it. There are many twist, turns and interesting backstories. Anatoly get fleshed out and we learn that he has secrets -- so there is a lot of meat in the backstories.

    Garra Zackman continue to do a great job narrating and I've become accustomed to her reasonable pace and excellent control of the character interactions.

    You want to read this novel and you are going to want to get to the next one as soon as possible. Keep the series going, its still has legs.
