NO. The narrator's use of accents in characters' speech was VERY grating to both mine and my 8 year old daughter's nerves. Just read the story as written. Please don't add accents that are not described in the books. I was shocked to hear Hannah Gruen portrayed as a Yankee interpretation of a Southern belle. George's voice conjured images of an elderly male nursing home inhabitant.
Unfortunately the introduction to Bess and Gearge's romantic interests was marred by the narrator's rendition of their parts in the book.
Laura Linney had done an excellent job narrating previous books.
A mistaken letter stolen, an unknown heiress in danger of being swindalled and a teenage detective with two mysteries to solve.
