    Life is not easy for the poor relations of England’s upper crust, but fate and clever schemes bring them together. Lady Fortescue and Colonel Sandhurst hatch a plan: What if they were to transform her decrepit Bond Street home into a posh hotel, offering their guests the pleasure of being waited upon by nobility? With the help of other down-and-out aristocrats, they do just that, and London’s newest hotel, The Poor Relation, is born. The establishment is an immediate hit with London’s most illustrious citizens, save the Duke of Rowcester....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book is fun to read. The characters are a hoot and they become so involved with each other through their needs which they start to solve with some hilarity and common sense.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lady Fortescue Steps Out?

    How they meet each other while trying to solve their financial problems.


    What about Davina Porter’s performance did you like?

    Davina Porter is my favorite reader. I have bought most of the books she has "read" starting with Victoria Holt books. She really brings life to the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a great listen and should be listened to more than once!

    When Katie appears in the small North Carolina town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past. Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken single neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community..

    What made the experience of listening to Safe Haven the most enjoyable?

    The romance and the characters... well thought out plot that is surprising and exciting.


    What other book might you compare Safe Haven to and why?

    Actually, this book reminds me of the movie "Sleeping with the Enemy"


    What does Rebecca Lowman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Listening to someone read with excitement and suspense beats trying to read it and think it to yourself. I love listening to books over and over again, but I don't usually read a book more than once.


    If you could rename Safe Haven, what would you call it?

    Wouldn't rename it... Can't think of a better name.
