    Caroline Maxwell would like nothing more than to join her brother, Eddie, and his friend Jack Culhane on their adventures. While Jack and Eddie are off seeing the world, buying up businesses and building wildly successful careers, Caroline's stuck at home frightening off the men her mother hopes will ask for her hand in marriage. When her mother sets her sights on the questionable Lord Bremerton as a possible suitor, Caroline struggles with her instincts and the true nature of her heart. She longs for adventure, passion, love, and most of all...Jack Culhane, an unconventional Irish-American bachelor with new money and no title.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Janet Evanovich and Dorien Kelly and/or Lorelei King?

    I love Janet Evanovich's quirky characters and Lorelei King's spot-on narrations, but even these trusted names cannot overcome this novel's lackings.


    What was most disappointing about Janet Evanovich and Dorien Kelly ’s story?

    Most disappointing was the lack of these quirky characters and the predictable, lifeless plot.


    Have you listened to any of Lorelei King’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    King's narration attempted to breathe life into the work, but even a ventilator and defibrillator couldn't have successfully revived this text.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was disappointed in the story. I tried to recast my expectations for Evanovich's usual genre and pretend I was listening to a bad Jane Austin, but even that didn't make this a good listen.


    Any additional comments?

    For listeners who enjoy the novel of manners, with it's overemphasis on adhering to the constraints of society, this might be enjoyable. But if you expect the quick wit, colorful characters, zany plot, and quick pace of other Evanovich novels in contemporary settings, give this one a pass.
