Rosalyn Landor's voice and narration are absolutely perfect for this book. Her American accents are hilarious (in a good way) and her pitch and timing are wonderful. I find myself laughing a LOT in this book, which is unusual for a romance. The story is funny, cute, and everything you want from escapism. I'll be looking for more from both the author and the narrator.
“I love all genres of books, however when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
When I saw that some of the Wall Flowers series books are being offered in audiobook format I was thrilled. After listening to this, more than once, I have to give this my highest recommendation possible. If you like beautiful romance with great sex, and if you like excellent narration, you will not regret purchasing this audiobook. I am waiting anxiously for the remaining Wall Flower books to become available in audiobook format as well.
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
A beautiful story that is very romantic. I loved the ending (one of the few that has made me cry). It set the ground for the next book that I will begin immediately. The narrator was very good also.
I read so I can write
This is going to be a fun and fantastic series if the rest continue like this first one. Such realistic characters and fun story. This Kleypas in her element and Landor at her best.
First book was wonderful, funny and oh so romantic!!
The Foundry fire
I highly recommend it!
This is the first book I’ve read by Lisa Kleypas and I enjoyed it thoroughly. The chemistry between Simon and Annabelle was just the right amount of tension and electricity. It wasn’t overly sappy nor under developed. It was very nice. I fell in love with the way Simon felt for Annabelle and vice versa. Experiencing this type of love myself, with my husband of 11 ½ years, I truly could relate to how Annabelle felt when she went back in the foundry after the love of her life. I could totally see myself doing that.
I know there is a part 2 to the Wallflower series, but I just don’t know how I’m going to feel about the story focusing on other characters beside Annabelle and Simon. I’m already attached to them. But I definitely will be reading the next novel in the series because I did so enjoy this first novel. Good job Lisa Kleypas.
The narration by Rosalyn Landor completely benefited the story. I knew who was talking at every turn. Even her male voices were great. She did an awesome job.
This was a good story. I could have been better. But it was a bit to wordy and descriptive of furnishings and the like for my taste. Not enough dialogue for me either. I enjoyed the H and H and the secondary characters. All in all it would have been a much better book with less descriptions and more dialogue. It was not good enough for me to move on to the next book.
Narration is okay if you listen to it on 1.25 speed. Not a huge fan of Rosalyn Landor but it was tolerable.
No, nothing beats the actual physical activity of holding the book and turning to the next page with all of the excitement and anticipation of seeing what is printed on that page.
It actually has no comparison for me. I usually read regency London novel's, this is the first of this era of London for me, but I LOVED IT.
No, the men kind of all sound the same to me.
Wall flowers, not just for show but for showing their peers how to get it right.
Love LK, I have tons of her books, but this series by far is my FAVORITE.
This historical romance "Secrets of a Summer Night" was so predictable and very disappointing to me. It was not what I was expecting, especially after all of the good reviews I had read about the series. It was like reading a soap opera script and was just too unbelievable and staged. Furthermore, the pact between the four Wallflower girls was so stupid!!
This is the first time I have ever read anything by the author Lisa Kleypas. I was so glad when the story was OVER! Some believe that this is the worst book of the “Wallflowers” series. Gee, I don’t think I can stand to waste a credit on another potentially bad story by Lisa Kleypas. Fortunately, some reviewers feel that this book is not one of her best. Maybe I will try a different book written by her, but not a part of this Wallflower series.
The London born actress/narrator, Rosalyn Landor, did an excellent job voicing the female characters. Unfortunately, voicing the male characters in the novel were NOT good.
Audible addicted love mystery,lately stuck on love story. Mother of 1 Labrador and 1 perfect man. Work way too hard, and so ready to be retired
Thank goodness for a writer that listens. I was pleasantly surprise i must admit I was beginning to believe this book was like all the rest man chase woman love hate relationship and than they come together finally than the end. It had become so frustrating to listen to the drama the couples had to go through and than no information hardly ever when they are finally together just a few loving making spots but Lisa pull it off trying not to give the story away but for me I enjoy the way she put it together there was a few frustrating parts but well blended. A good listen.
