The repetitiveness had me skipping pages and sometimes even entire chapters. The main couple came across at best as naive and at worse, borderline moronic. The villain perpetrated violent and sadistic acts against women and innocent young girls. I bought this book because of the narrator, but I couldn't finish it. I'm glad Audible has a good return policy in place .
Maybe, but with a warning that it could get frustrating.
Yes. I have several Putney novels in my library. However, I probably won't try another from this series, especially with this narrator.
It seems that the author could not decide if this book should be a Christian romance (lots of references to Methodist church) or if it should be a typical historical/Regency romance. The heroine goes from removing herself from the congregation in order to keep peace to playing "strip billiards". The narrator's soft, monotonous voice ruined the hero's image as a hardened rake.
The narrator is NOT suited for this book (or profession). She does not even attempt the British accents. She uses the same voice for everyone regardless of gender, age, country of origin, etc. No voice modulation to distinguish emotions. Just bad! I started and stopped three times before I gave up at the 1hr 38 min mark. I have listened to hundreds of books, however, this is my first review. I just couldn't let innocent credits be lost without warning. Buyer beware!
