I haven't read the print version
The main character. She was inspirational on how she took control of situations.
I hated for it to end! GREAT book!
Avid reader and, now, listener of most any genre, but especially sci-fi, fantasy, and books to which I like to refer as "history mysteries".
I'm a sixty-year-old male who isn't prone to reading what many readers would consider to be "chick lit". I bought the book pretty much on a whim after reading the synopsis and reviews of other Audible listeners. Like most of the other readers, I was immediately intrigued by the story and found myself wanting to know how the heroine would deliver justice to the bad guys. And, much to my surprise, I really enjoyed the sweet and romantic love story.
The characters were honest and believable. The villains were quite adequately villainous, and the good guys were not, thankfully, cheesy. All in all, it was a good balance of all the pertinent factors of the story: crime, intimidation, intrigue, treachery, character strength and, of course, love.
As an avid listener I must admit that I was at first a little disappointed in Ms. Whelan's performance. I felt that it lacked much of the dynamics that I've experienced with other performers. Fortunately, as I continued to listen and more characters were introduced, I realized her range was much wider than I thought. I do believe, however, that pulling off male voices seems to be more difficult for some female performers than vice versa. In any case, the overall performance was enjoyable.

Not all "chick lit" is sappy romanticism ... not that there's anything wrong with that, of course.
I loved the story of Elizabeth! What an awesome beginning, middle and ending! Well worth listening to! The development of the characters and the plot! Awesome job!
I normally stay away from romantic stuff. This didn't dwell on that, it focused mainly on the mystery. It is far fetched, but kept my interest throughout the book. I found that the main characters lacked a bit in the chemistry department. Which is the basis of every romantic novel. It kept my interest which is hard to keep.
