Just a book fool.
BAH this is a wonderful story but SO FRUSTRATING! I didn't know if I was going to make it there for a while. The narrator was fantastic, the characters are so charming, and the setting is perfect.
I highly recommend The Husband Trap to fans of romance, comedy, and 19th century British lit.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
This book is good in that it was fast and light. I did enjoy it, the narrarator good, but I was rolling my eyes several times with the descriptions such as "moon and stars sailing through her head as esctasy reached her." I had a chuckle over how cheesy it sounded. If you don't take it to seriously this is a good romance. The heroine made me want to slap her because she kept making the same mistakes over and over, in a friendly way such as I would my own sister for being stupid. Her sister on the other had has made me dispise her and I decided I don't want a happy ending for her so I will skip book 2 and continue on to book 3.
A wonderful adventure!!
The whole book was memorable. Ms. Warren did a nice job giving just enough details to put you in the time period.
I love all Ms. Amato's narrations and she was the reason I purchased this audio book in the first place. Wonderful selection!
The ending...but I can't tell.
Give it a try, it is fun and light.
I am a child of the 50's, love kids, animals, plants. I adopted a Sulphur mustang mare (desendant of the warhorses of the Conquistadors).
The plot seemed so predictable - perhaps more character development would have helped...
With such a predictable plot the author should have tossed the reader a bone by having more character development, and/or more historical background. If this book were a painting the main characters would have been stick people...
The narrator didn't have a lot of range as far as making the voices of the different characters distinguishable, but I don't know if it's possible for the narrator to have changed that. Not every narrator has the talents of Davina Porter or Marguerite Gavin...
With the predictable plot, and weak character development each character was needed...
This was a passable book, especially if you like soft, text-type porn...
Something about yourself.
The narration was very slow. The story pace was slow and the characters were not my favorite. It was not an enjoyable book for me. I increased the playback speed and doggedly finished this listen. I will not continue this trilogy. The idea was excellent but I think the narrator might've ruined it for me. Next.
It had a good premise but the heroine is such a push over it becomes annoying. She is so insecure and lets her sister walk all over her even though she knows she is being deceived. It was worth one read...maybe if it was free or less than $5. Not worh a credit though.
Books make the world a better place
I wouldn't tell a person NOT to buy this audiobook. In truth I did find it quite satisfactory. It was an easy audiobook to listen to, having romance, no real antagonist and presenting an uncomplicated plot with basically 'good' characters whose only conflicts are the ones they create themselves. I listened to this book while doing chores around the house and I found it to be good company as I worked.
The author bases her story around twins who are identical in appearance but complete opposites otherwise. A turn of events puts the wrong sister in the right place...and so the story unfolds, progressing as one might suspect with little to no surprises.
I loved this book and the narrator truly brought this book to life. Being married to an identical twin I can see how this could very easily happen and how Violet is so much weaker than Jeannette. The other two books in this series are just as good. I love them all.
Yes - the narrator (Bianca Amato) helped to draw me into the story - great inflections and enjoyable character voices.
Violet of course!!! :) A woman with a brain and a heart...a REAL woman - being vulnerable and strong all at the same time.
Her characters have delight and other emotions that really bring the story to life.
While this had been in my library for a while - I needed something else to listen to - my more recent "reads" were getting me stuck, and I enjoyed this book so much that I moved forward and purchased both Book 2 and Book 3! :)
Also, I'm adding Tracy Anne Warren as another favorite author - her stories has the needed highs, lows and a bit of suspense - I found myself thinking - WHAT could be happening next?!
