Adventurous historical romance
I can remember the first time I read this many years ago and given the numberof boo ks I have read, that is significant.
Yes once I sped up narrative and got used to it.
Don't be discouraged by the beginning narrative. It gets better, especially at 1.25x. And you get into the story. It's worth any effort of adjustment (if you like historical action packed romance books).
Lots of action
She is okay, read a smidgen too slow, I upped the speed to 1.25x and it worked for me.
If you like romantic suspense that is action packed and not too "steamy", dass then don't hesitate!
Is it the best book ever? No, but its not meant to be. It is a cheerful, fun listen and I am very glad they put it and 3 more on Audible. Bring more like it!
I have gotten so used to not worrying over books I purchase from Audible that I did not even think to listen to a sample of the reader. Its AWFUL! Monotone with a lisp. No character. I think I listened for 4 minutes before turning it off and calling Audible. And I am NOT picky!!
I LOVED this audiobook. This is not my genre but it caught my eye and I listened to it in one day! Didn't want to "use up" an audiobook in one day but I couldn't help it. As a young adult, I always enjoyed reading the short stories called "Drama in real life" in Readers Digest, and while this is fiction it reminded me of that memory. I am getting the prequel to this now. It didn't bother me not to have read the first one- I think it easily stands alone.
I also found myself surprised at how good this book was. I would consider it a mystery or maybe a romantic suspense, but overall it is just a good fiction book. I am particular about what I like and never write reviews, so I hope you will find this helpful and will give the book a shot. (The reader is heavy on the Texan accent but you get past it very quickly- and being from Texas myself I don't know anyone who talks like that! But it doesn't affect the enjoyment of the book.. )
