I read all kinds of books, but I have an obsession with paranormal and fantasy at the moment. Sorry about any spelling mistakes/typos.
Lisa has an amazing gift for creating characters that come alive and describing the time and location vividly without going on and on about it. The characters and story line are believable and interesting.
I don't normally 'read' historical romances but after listening to this book I couldn't help but listen to the rest of the series.
The narration was also excellent and added to my enjoyment of the book.
Great listen I go back to often. This is probably my fourth or so. Now reading this and imagining Hodgem(sp?) as D. Trump is only adds to the creep-factor and satisfactory comeuppance!
Say something about yourself!
Any book written by Julie Garwood
Her chosen voices for the characters
As usual, Ms. Kleypas has written a well structured story and developed characters. She captured the emotions of her characters well and also provided realistic historical details about the time period. It was a well developed story, with little to no holes in the plot. I can't wait to find out what happens to the next "Wallflower".
I enjoy a light historic chick lit every once in a while and this was a good one. I would probably read all, though audible doesn't have all of the books in their catalog. I will be on the lookout for them.
mainly read romances and books for a book club that take me all over the map.
Listened to this one for the fourth or fifth time this weekend and still enjoyed it. The story starts to flesh out some of how society is changing as the industrial revolution is underway contrasting entrepreneurs with traditional aristocracy. Annabelle and Simon are wonderfully memorable characters. The supporting cast sets up the Wallflowers Series very nicely. If you enjoy the idea of getting lost in a world filled with ballrooms, beautifully gowned women and an alpha male staking his claim this should be on your download list.
It was a nice, very vanilla story. Nothing very interesting, and the story line was pretty predictable.
I would listen to the story again...and again...and probably even again. Ms. Landor does a stunning job of bringing the characters to life and the story is so fast moving that I'm sure there are parts that I didn't fully absorb.
I always enjoy a good series....and this series is great. Even though I read them out of order they still made sense and each of the characters, even minor ones, are very well developed.
Her inotation and ability to characterize linguistic patterns make her a master of her trade.
I laughed out loud quite a lot....hence my earlier comment about listening to it again. I'm quite sure I missed some interesting parts.
Awesome heart-rending read!
I love all of Lisa Kleypas' books, but the Wallflowers series and the Hathaways series are truly amazing. The story made me laugh and cry and keep reading til I was done, then go onto the next in the series. Rosalyn Landor has the ability to make you feel that there are many readers, one for each character.
I specifically look for books that Rosalyn Landor narrates, she's really wonderful.
I'd recommend this entire series, but my all-time favorite Kleypas novel is Poppy Hathaway's story in the Hathaway series.
