Yes. The series is light and fun.
The ending when Darcy says he's staying at the manor. Usually he's running off somewhere.
I liked the twins. (Two characters, I know, but they were done so well.)
Yes - and I did!
I really enjoyed this! Very entertaining. The narrator did a fine job and the story kept me interested from the opening line. Kit and Lucien were great together. Overall, very enjoyable.
I love this series. This book was most entertaining. Very well done. I look forward to more by Christi Caldwell.
I applaud the author for addressing abuse. It shouldn't be swept under the rug. That's not what I disliked about this book. It felt unpolished. Perhaps it was the narrator (whose work I usually enjoy.) The story was pretty good but seemed rather flat to me. And, as I said, the narration was surprisingly poor. I'll give this author another try with her subsequent book.
Another brilliant book by Eloisa. I loved it!
Mia loved Vander when she was a child. Now, as an adult, she makes him an offer he doesn't refuse. And the story goes on from there. How their relationship changes is the basis of this story.
The children in Eloisa's books are wonderful. Charlie in this book and Rose from the previous one are two of the cutest kids. I would love to have had more of Rose but I bet she'll be back.
I had a hard time getting started with this but it may have been that it was 2am and I was on a train. I kept falling asleep which can be tough with an audiobook. The narrator, as usual, was perfect
Well now, I must admit this has not been my favorite in this series. I was anticipating Lucien's story and I expected more. I loved him in the previous books and I really wanted to hear about him and a strong woman who challenged him in a serious, fun manner but as an equal. I didn't care for Eva. It wasn't bad but it was rather dark and lacked the romance and playfulness of the previous books. It improved in the last part with some excitement. I was glad to see Andrew come through. The narrator did a decent job with the exception of Eva's voice. I didn't care for how he read her part - too breathless. I am looking forward to seeing how the last sibling's story goes.
I'm glad I tried a book by this author. This was a great read/listen. The lead characters were great. Anne is a strong woman and it's good to have more of them in books. Calum is wonderful. Honorable, charming, strong. Perfect almost. :-) The plot was fast-moving and kept me interested from the very beginning. The narrator did a good job, too. A winner!
I liked this more than I thought I would. I felt it slowed down a bit in the middle (Charles' walkabout) but it came back. I have mixed emotions about Charles' behavior but the story was better than I expected especially since I liked Juliet so much. Narrator doesn't do a great job with all voices but it was okay.
It's been a while since I've listened to a Scott Brick-narrated Cotton Malone story. Why did I wait so long? Brick is amazing.
Steve Berry can write too-amazing-to-be-true stuff but this book was good with a major caveat. It jumped all over the place too quickly. Maybe reading the print version would make it easier to see the transitions but with the audiobook it was difficult to grasp the changes right away. I had to go back and listen to parts more than I have in any other book. Also, and another first , I had to make a list of the characters to keep them all in order. Phewww. Reading can be hard work.
But the story was intriguing, the historical bits were vintage Berry, and the characters were colorful. I learned more than I needed to know about torture techniques. I liked this book and now I'm anxious to get caught up with the rest of Cotton's adventures.
Oh dear. First off, I have to say this has been my favorite of the series. It may be because the narration is - finally - good.
The story was okay. I've always liked Harry and who can't like Lucy's grandmother! But, as with the previous two books, a potential grand confrontation with the villain just fizzles. There were plenty of clues that something dramatic would take place between Lucy and Buckley. That storyline was very disappointing. There were missed opportunities to add some drama.
There was much wrong with this but for entertainment value this wasn't too bad.
I appreciate all the work that an author puts into a book. This was entertaining but I can't say I liked it. First of all, the narrator was pathetic. She immediately made me dislike Angeline because of her snobby, breathless voice. She made Penny sound whiney. Not the best narrator.
Something I noticed in the previous book in this series is that the highly-anticipated run-in with the villain is a terrible let-down. (Apologies for all the hyphens.) It happened again here.
Repetition. There are numerous references to the dog in the WC and Colin chasing lightskirts, to name two.
And some things just defy belief. Colin changes from a rake to a model son overnight? The house is in such good shape after being left empty for 25 years?
I already have the next book in the series so I will read it but these aren't on my Favorite Books list, unlike some others written by Vicky Dreiling.
