I thoroughly enjoyed The Rejected Suitor! The story was light and enjoyable with fun & interesting plot twists. I've only recently discovered these regency books and find them delightfully distracting. I appreciated the light hand taken in the romance details. While some books are guilty pleasures that you would not want to be overheard, I could listen to 'Suitor' and not cringe if my children caught some of the narration. And speaking to the narration, Ms Hewitt's performance was spot on. I literally felt like I was meeting different and distinct characters, even forgetting it was only one person voicing them at times! From the dottering old aunt to the overbearing brother to the minor characters, the care the author gave to their creation was realized in the narrator's skillful performance.
This book was exactly as promised. I wanted a fluffy fiction, not a historical documentary and that is what I got. Ms McCarthy wove a fun fantasy tapestry and Ms Hewitt spun the tale into vibrant life with her lyrical and lovely voice. Thank you ladies!
Brilliant. Compelling. Categorized as "Young Adult" but perhaps more because the female protagonist is a child, this story will break your heart on one page and on the next give you comfort. You can't help but care about the characters.
The narrator, Allan Corduner, is truly amazing as he brings life to Death, the book's narrator. I took great pleasure in how his voice messaged the words and images. I've read reviews from those who read the written words and they all complain that it was slow getting into the story, but not true with Allan Corduner giving voice to Death.
