Love Rosalyn Landor and this was a pretty good book. I loved finding out about Honoria and the musical group. I laughed out loud a few times in this book. It is just a light read so don't expect too much but it was very enjoyable.
Great characters, great plot, witty dialogue. What's not to like? You really can't go wrong with Quinn.
I know I will buy many more from an author when I listen to ones like this .I felt the characters come to life , I laughed out loud a few times , I listened in one sitting.Very well done .
A mom, a wife, a friend, a happy ending addict, an audiobook junkie, a wine lover and geek wanna -be. I'm constantly looking to be blown awa
This was my first go at a Julia Quinn's book and I don't know if my expectations were to high or this wasn't her best effort, there's so many people who love her books that I don't know what to think.
I felt the characters a little flat and I never really got involved, I didn't hated it and I did like the way the romance was slow to develop, I love historicals because they call to my idealistic, romantic,tender and fairytale side, I just felt something was missing.
I love Rosalyn Landor, she has narrated some of my favorite audiobooks like: The entire Hathaway series by Lisa Kleypas.
The Audio was boring, no inflictions in vocals.
Not this author or vocal person.
Boring story, boring vocals.
The main characters!
It was the first time I fast forwarded portions of a book because the dialogue was so tedious.
The development of Honoria's and Marcus' relationship- but it was way to drawn out.
As always, she was excellent
The pace of the novel was too slow and then tied up too quickly at the end
This book by Julia Quinn was very disappointing. Senseless chatter by young women and their mothers, not once by several times. The beginning was overdone emphasizing that the heroine was a nuisance when she was a child. The characters were flat and didn't have chemistry or tension.
SPOILER***The bedroom scene was just unbelievable - in her parents' house during a party? The hero was as close to a rutting pig as an author could write it.**
Very disappointing from a writer who has done much better.
The narration was well-done considering what she was given to perform.
Love historical romances; smart, imperfect people who find love when they are not looking for it.
This is a light and fun story. It begins to drag a bit in the middle and you will want to help the characters along. But stay with it -- you will be glad you did.
The ending is charming and surprising. The story comes back around to a true crescendo. I was smiling all through the last.
Rosalyn is consistent, she defines each character well making it easy to dive into the story.
I loved the ending musical. Delightful.
So many books, so little time!
The humour and the fact that the central characters were not prone to fits of the vapours or being overbearing! Marcus isn't a rake; he's just a decent man who is a bit shy and Honoria is loving and proud of her somewhat bonkers family!
Oh, where to start? She's far and away my favourite narrator. Her performances are always well thought-out and she sounds as though she's actually read the book a few times and spent time understanding the characters. She's outstanding when it comes to the female characters, giving each one a clearly different voice, and her elderly dowagers are a hoot!
The part where it dawned on Honaria that Marcus really didn't have anyone to turn to or look after him.
This is perfect if you're in the mood for something light and fluffy - and Rosalyn Landor can't be bettered when it comes to historical romance.
