Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
A sweet historical romance is always a nice welcome after an intense thriller or heated erotica and a wonderful narrator makes it even sweeter!
M.O.M. - manager of mayhem!
Love Kleypas and Landor!
Always! But This Heroine was frustrating and bland... Hero came off as a brute.. not even a likeable brute :-) Ending was lackluster... I always judge a good book by asking if I would read/listen to it again... this one was a no... but it wasn't bad or awful.. just average
I'm not a period romance reader but this was an easy, excellent read!!!!
Not an overwhelming amount of period detail, although just enough to know what era you were readng about.
The fire at the theatre.
No but I was enthralled with the book and finished it rather quickly.
I need more ears!
I've been indulging in a lot of Lisa Kleypas lately. I find her books soothing and a great escape. Especially as read by Rosalyn Landor. This one was very much like the others, though it didn't stand out for me. I think the problem was the female protagonist. She was independent enough to become an actress to support herself at a time when that profession was scandalous, but not strong enough to realize she was in love . . . ?
That was just weak. A woman like that would know what she wanted and go for it. So much time was wasted with her in denial that it kind of ruined the whole book. And the male character was a neanderthal. Period.
Dear Ms. Kleypas: You have a good thing going. Stop making your female characters so stupid, and your male characters so one dimensional. Thank you, a loyal fan.
Audio-fiction ADDICT !
I love Lisa Kleypas. This one was a nice Listen. The hero is enchanting . And Rosalyn Landor's narration is the best I have ever heard. Her voice and performance makes you feel and live the story. Well done Rosalyn !
As most know who have been reading my book reviews over the years, Lisa Kleypas has always been a favorite author of mine, and I have to say with SOMEWHERE I’LL FIND YOU, it has eclipsed all my other top twenty favorites and lands pretty near to the top! Glamorous leading lady, Julia Wentworth is at the top of her game. The most celebrated actress in all of London and could have anything she desires. But the beautiful, talented lady is plagued with a shocking secret - a mysterious husband whom she does not know, has never met, and cannot possibly love.
For many years, Damon Savage has been searching for the stranger his parents wed him to without his consent. Damon wants nothing more than to free himself from the strangling bonds of matrimony so that he could get on with his life and pursue a real woman - not a shadow bride he’d never met. As it turned out, Damon finally did meet a woman whom he’d love to take as his mistress, only to finally discover that “she” was his “missing bride”. However, even though Julia was legally his by law, he would now have to woo her, win her trust, and battle rivals for her love and independent heart.
Not only does Ms. Kleypas write intelligent dialogs that let your mind imagine it is watching a movie, but she has one of the top narrators - Rosalyn Landor - performing brilliantly to bring all the players to life with her tried and true rendering of the many voices in the play. The combination of Ms. Kleypas creation and Ms. Landor’s performance made listening to the audio of SOMEWHERE I’LL FIND YOU even more special. It just doesn’t get any better than this.
The sensuality of the wooing of Julia by Damon was highly emotional, sweet and totally divine. The chosen words of love by author Kleypas was as exquisite as always and left this reviewer with that total ahhhhhhhh…. feeling as the narrator uttered the last word. As always a totally marvelous book.
I loved the characters, found the story very interesting, and despite having just listened to this a second time, I got totally absorbed in the story as soon as I began, and continued to enjoy it all the way through. I also absolutely love the narrator, Rosalyn Landor. In this book, as in all the others she has narrated, she gives each character a unique, expressive voice that brings them and their story alive.
