I don't usually read romances and this is a most improbable plot. But I really enjoyed it... the characters are likeable, the sex is steamy without being vulgar, and while the plot is both improbable and predicable it is very engaging. I will probably get the rest when I have extra credits... it there such a thing?
Doing the right thing is the hardest thing you will ever do" but one must try.. everyday. I thank my parents and heavenly father for the faundation of my life. I continue to build on it every day with the help of all my great friends and family. Love is a great faundation for life and Books are like a great meal that one must enjoy slowly ;)
cant put this in ranking but in my favorite series reading order YES #3
Sherbrooke bride series! just a wonderful story... wish there was more than 3 in the series
Great voice, in character and wonderfully soothing and entertaining!
The wrong choice.
Of the 50 books I've listened to this one is in my top 10. You will enjoy this story.
The storyline was completely different then anything I've read. I literally felt so connected with Violet I could feel what she was going through, the anxiety all the way to the love.
I don't have a favorite scene because the entire book is that good. I wanted to listened to it in one day.
I would take Violet just so I could listen to her recount the entire story again. I want to hear all over how she felt when she discovered the truth.
I think anyone would enjoy this book no matter the genre they prefer.
Can't hear you....I'm reading!!
I loved the story and how everything transpired. I liked that it didn't prolong the obvious ending.
I love her accent and there was a difference between people.
Good start to a trilogy
More historical references and some other story line besides one self absorbed girl
One boring predictable thread of story
Very disappointed..I feel a high school child could have written a better story. So surface in the storyline and one long boring read. I actually couldn't finish as it was so insipid and could have been written n 3 pgs.
I have 3 kids that occupy all the TV's in the house...enough said...addicted to audiobook ....shhhh don't tell my husband ;-)
There wasn't a boring part in this book, I stayed up to the wee hours in the morning to finish the book in one listen. I love romance books with great plots! Its early 1800's at the wedding of Duke Raeburn and Jeanette Rose, but Jeanette convinces her younger shy book-worm twin sister to take her place at the alter. Janette Violet finds herself having to keep up the pretense of being the life of the party, boisterous Jeanette Rose the new Dutchess of Raeburn. Violets sweet reserved nature starts to show through and people start catching on her true identity. Very scandalous and hard to put down!
Very Credit worthy and get it while its on sale!
I have a real crazy in love relationship with books!!!
I thought this was a cute story. I truly enjoyed the main characters, the storyline itself, and the main characters. While this was not the best book I've ever heard, it was good and I would definitely recommend it.
If you need an easy listen, this will surely do it for you!
yes, the trilogy is a fun one.. all the characters and story lines have depth and dimension. The heroine Violet frustrated me at the ending of the book but it ended well... well worth reading and continuing the trilogy... Loved the Duke :-)
The top so far. It's up there with The Witness
Nora Roberts - The Witness, just good writing and narrating
Excellent narration. Love the English dialect
I found myself at the end rooting for Adrian to recognize that it was Jeanette and not Violet he was dancing with. I found myself saying, "Violet you're stupid for allowing your sister to hood-wink you again, get it together Violet."
I really enjoyed listening to this book. I don't know if I would have enjoyed reading the book -vs- listening any better. Great book! At first I thought Adrian was guff and mean but as the book went on, I grew to love him and his firm yet compassionate tone with Violet. Violet's character was just warming, couldn't helped but to love her!!
I think it is probably a good story but the narrator is so bad that it makes it very, very hard to pay attention to the story line. I am going to buy the books in the series (The wife trap, The Wedding Trap, The Husband Trap) because what I have been able to listen to of The husband trap seems to be a very good story.
I like the characters - both Violet and Adrian. They both seem to be such good people, loving, caring, good hearted and meant for each other.
The narrator is so bad, she makes both characters sound like such horrible snobs and the other voices are so bad that it is very distracting. You can be a snob without sounding so bad. Even when they seemed to be saying something nice it came out sounding bad. Also, between chapters there is a long pause, long enough that you think it has stopped - very annoying.
Couldn't get far enough into the book because of the narrator. Was only able to get to the fourth or fifth chapter and only that far because I forced myself. I thought maybe I could get used to the narrartor but I can't.
I was really looking forward to all 3 of these books and I will get them to read on my Kindle Fire as the stories sound so good, I've had trouble with 1 or 2 other narrators but never bad enough that I could not get through the book. I will never buy another book that she narrates, no matter how good the story sounds.
