I loved reading all of the Stephanie Plumb novels and was looking forward to the audio version, but was disappointed in the narrator. Her portrayal of Stephanie was rather asexual instead of the babe that Stephanie definitely is, and her attempts to portray the men sounded like, well, a woman trying to sound like a man. Most narrators are able to pull this off more convincingly. This version distracted me from the story, at least as I had imagined it.
I loved the first book, A Discovery of Witches, and enjoyed the continuation of the story of Diana and Matthew's adventure, but have had a VERY hard time finishing this story. There are way too many characters and the author does not take the time to develop more than a few of them. Each time I start listening, I have to back up several chapters to review who's who and what's happening or I'm lost. I've actually started the story from the beginning more than once and I'm starting to wonder just how much I care. I really want to like this book, and want to listen to all three in the trilogy, but if this one had been first, it would have been the last for me.

I don't know, as I did not read the print version.
I find British people fascinating for some reason and loved all the characters.
I have listened to all the
I don't know.
This series is fun for a silly escape. It has an interesting perspective of a rather ordinary young woman with access to the Queen, pressure to marry some other royal,but who can't afford to live the lifestyle that the rest of her family expects.
