I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
Mine Till Midnight is the first book in the Hathaway's series, and it is a book you will not want to put down. I would definitely recommend it to any of my adult friends.
Lisa has a gift for developing very likable characters, that as a reader, you begin to invest your time in getting to know. I love this family of misfits! They are precious, and funny, and loyal. They love each other as a family should, with "warts and all".
Rosalyn Landor delivers another amazing performance. Her voices are believable and her story telling is captivating.
This book is definitely worth the credit..Enjoy!
A good story, interesting likable characters, and a very talented reader.
The characters. Although I knew it would have a happy ending, I was curious to see how they would make it happen. Also interesting side stories.
She had a distinct voice for each character and does the male voices very well, which can be a problem for some readers.
This is my favorite audiobook so far. I will be downloading the rest of the books in this series as long as they are read by Ms. Landor.
i like how this was about a gypsy instead of a gentleman and how this series is not confined to upper class folks. it was pretty funny how he takes over her life! i really enjoyed Rosalyn Landor's reading too. sometimes it can be a little funky sounding if the woman reading does not portray the man correctly and it was just right with this book:}
I like to read stories about dogs, mysteries that are a little but humorous, stories about relationships that are not too explicate, Christian fiction and stories revolving around knitting and quilting.
Maybe... With a warning about the sexual content.
Enjoyed all the characters.
Hmmm... Didn't read the print version.
Definitely NOT rated PG13.
Lisa is a great writer. Love her story lines, characters and attention to details...
Just wish there was more "left to the imagination" for the sexual content.
As usual, LK's books are all around fabulous. Great characters...different surprises than the usual romance novel...just the right amount of steamy love scenes and terrific endings!!! Can't wait to download the next book. :)
I love the Hathaway Series! I love the characters and the stories are interesting and well developed, but, jeez there's just too much sex in this one. Every other scene Amelia and Cam are at it again! I got to the point where I'd groan "Oh man, not again!" If I'd had the ability to fast forward through these scenes I would of. Don't get me wrong, I'm not the least bit prudish, but pleeease! "Too much information!!!" I would enjoy the romance scenes more if Lisa could leave something to the imagination. How about a few scenes of dialog before "Hathaways Gone Wild" starts up again :)
I do love the story and I especially love Cam and Maripen. The addition of this aspect makes the stories so interesting that I can listen to them over and over. All the characters are wonderful and I highly recommend this book and all the other ones in this series. Lots of laughs as well as high drama. A perfect mix.
Love reading. Love listening.
Setting: London and Hampshire, England 1848
Genre: Early Victorian Romance
Narration: Rosalyn Landor, as usual, delivers a fine performance. She managed to pull off the voices of the characters from the Wallflowers series, as well as give unique voices to the many characters introduced in this novel. This was my second listening, and it was great.
Mine Till Midnight is the first in the Hathaways series and a very good start it is. The main characters in this book are Amelia, the oldest female in the Hathaway family, and Cam, a Rom/Irish man who played a small part in Devil in Winter. The plot is about how this family adjusts to their change in circumstance. LK manages to do a good job of presenting the main plot while weaving in a sort of sub-plot, and introducing characters who figure in subsequent books. And by introduction, I don't mean just names. I mean names, position in the family, some backstory, and personality traits. The main characters in this story also play roles in the stories with other characters. Sometimes, in a series featuring many individuals, a listener can get confused about who is who, but the narration helps with that issue. I don't know if it would have been so easy in print.
Worth the credit and the time.
It's in the top 5!
Well it would obviously be compared to the rest of the Hathaway Series as well as the Wallflower Series. It's just as good as the Wallflower books and has some of our favorite characters from that series in it but it add extra layers of conflict and emotion which leads to even greater rewards.
Rosalyn brings the picture to life during any intimate scene and during extremely exciting moments. Her voices conveys the thickness of the moment or the desperation in the character and everything in between.
It did bring some emotions out since the family has experienced quite a few unfortunate events and you can feel the way they must feel to endure such things.
Great book. There was so much in this first book of the series I forgot that there are four more!
I really enjoyed this book. It features love in all it's forms: new romantic love, old romantic love, lost love, sibling love/rivalry. The relationship between Amelia & Cam is charged from the very beginning. He needs something different from the over-experienced courtesans he usually spends time with, and even though she won't admit it to herself or anyone else, Amelia needs someone to help her herd the unruly siblings she's essentially been left in charge of. Its very easy to sympathize with all of these characters...even Amelia, who's stubbornness you would expect to find annoying, but actually seems understandable.
Rosalyn Landor is an excellent reader. She does a great job giving each character her/his own voice and in her narrator's voice.
I read so I can write
I have not read the written version of this book, so my review is of the work I've heard.
It was typically Lisa Kleypas which means it was worth the time and money. It was well written and totally enjoyable. What can be said about the hero except wow, good enough to eat.
There were no weak characters in this story. Each of them has their place and holds it well.
Ms. Landor's performance was it's usual fantastic. She is one of only a handful of really outstanding narrators of historic romance novels.
