This is my first Lynsay Sands book and I loved it. Loved the story and the characters. Sarah Coomes did a great job narrating the story. Looking forward to my next L Sands book.
was the first audio book for me, and no disappointment. Story is well written as well as read, though i did regretted of not getting an actual book. I'd love to find more books like this one to enjoy
I loved this book and so funny I laughed out loud and I never do that! You will not be disappointed!
Sexy , romantic, and hysterical! Laugh out loud at times! Very good read. My first romance that had so much humor in it!
Yes, as long as they have a sense of humor and they're not looking for the "usual" historical fiction.
Yes. I have many books by Lynsay Sands, just nothing like this one. Sands would have lost me on this one, if not for Sarah. I truly hope the next book really isn't a retelling of this one, I hate when that happens.
Sarah Coomes performance doesn't allow you to take the book seriously and that's the only way this book works, would ever work for me. I LOVE to read and have a great imagination, but I couldn't have read this book.I would not have made it through chapter two. The Countess is close to ludicrous parody of an historical romance and I admit, if it wasn't for Sarah's delivery/performance, I would have given up. Sarah Coomes performance totally MADE this book! I confess to "eye rolling" in the beginning, but Sarah not only kept me listening, but laughing out loud. Perhaps she read it in the way it written. It's like a farce and her delivery makes it hilarious instead of annoying. I actually laughed to tears a couple of times. Thanks Sarah =)
This book will join Helen's Babies read Kara Shallenberg as my go to pick me up, when I need a laugh.
OMGoodness! I laughed to tears. Yes, I had extreme reactions, but honestly my first was "you've got to be kidding me," but forget the negative reviews and just listen. If you would rather read than watch TV (read for entertainment) and do not expect the usual romance, you may just may enjoy.
I have found very few book that are not predictable, but just because you know where you're going doesn't mean you can't enjoy the trip. I am not one of those readers/listeners that looks for meaning or messages in works of fiction, but that doesn't mean I can't, don't, or won't see them if/when they occur.Christiana was emotionally/verbally abused during the year of her marriage to the so called earl. The self doubt and trust issue she has when her fortune change is very real and isn't overcome in less than 2 weeks, but that's why I read fiction. I'm definitely happy with the ending and the tiny small glimpse into a very real struggle, it beats having it skipped or glossed over.
Maybe the author, but most definitely NOT the reader. She was extremely annoying: girlish, nasal, and shrill.
Maybe. I admit there were some funny parts, but the sex scenes were ridiculously overblown, and the farce wasn't that great.
I don't know, but most definitely not her.
I thought it was funnier the first time I listened to it. I just finished listening to it for the second time and I could barely finish it. It was just terrible. Maybe I blocked out the bad parts last time :)
AN INTERESTING STORY WELL PLOTTED WITH BELIEVABLE CHARACTERS, THE NARRATOR DETRACTS FROM THE ENJOYMENT OF THE BOOK SOMEWHAT BUT IF YOU CAN OVERLOOK THAT ITS A GOOD READ
The Countess has some likeable characters, and an enjoyable plot. However, this read is sadly lacking in historical context. The dialog was too modern to be believable. Situations were plausible, but not carried out well. However, it did make for a low key light listen.
I would ask for more of a sense of suspsense. I found myself looking forward to the story being over so I could go on to something else.
It was as expected and ordinary as the rest of the book.
She did a good job of creating the personalities of each of the characters.
