It was a good listen, and I'm glad I chose to add it to my library.
The narrator did a wonderful job of changing her voice for each character. It really made the book much more enjoyable. Her voice and speed are wonderful. Her pauses between paragraphs were sometimes a little long but forgivable.
The twist near the end was nice, but was bummed when it was so easily overcome. Perhaps that was the writers point but I suppose I thought it would be more.

This is a New York Times Bestseller??? No wonder I don't pay attention to the NYT list anymore.
Sorry, this historical just doesn't do it for me. Plays too much like a modern romance with everyone in costumes. Drives me nuts. I'll stick to Georgette Heyer. I should have known better.
Olivia and Harry of course! Olivia because she's just so funny in her little ways and Harry because of his wit
her voice make them all seems alive
the kidnaping of Olivia
Totally addicted to Audible.
I love buying books on sale to discover authors I have not read and this has been a delightful purchase. A little romance, a little intrigue and a lot of humor. Rosalyn Landor is a favorite narrator and she brings just the right tone to this story.
I enjoyed it.
Yes, I would recommend it. It was different than most love stories, and although the first part was a little slow, the second part was interesting. It was worth listening to.
I enjoyed the humor.
The performance by Rosalyn Landor made this story. Her ability to change her voice between male and female were exceptional, making the story interesting. Without her, I think it would have been hard to follow.

I listened to this while I was outside staining my deck. It was a pleasant piece of candy that needed no attention to details. The perfect novel for the mindless task at hand. I don't think I will waste credits on another of her books, however. I fear they will all be the same? More interesting authors and characters out there.
For me... The narration was a tad annoying and the story was very thin and predictable. This book doesn't compare to other historical love stories. Good thing I got it on sale.
I purchased this book some months ago but for some reason it got lost in my library. Dug it out this morning and spent the entire day listening and laughing.
How fun it is to have a historical romance with great humor. I laughed out loud many times.
Roslyn Landor is at her usual best. Julia Quinn hit a home run with this one.
