    Story
    (206)

    Captain John Staple’s exploits in the Peninsula had earned him the sobriquet Crazy Jack amongst his fellows in the Dragoon Guards. Now home from Waterloo, life in peacetime is rather dull for the adventure-loving Captain. But when he finds himself lost at an unmanned toll-house in the Pennines, his soldiering days suddenly pale away beside an adventure - and romance - of a lifetime.

    What made the experience of listening to The Toll-Gate the most enjoyable?

    It was typical Georgette Heyer and was easy listening.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It was of course unrealistic. Love at first sight kind of thing.

    Story
    (26)

    Hated for his cruel and vicious nature, ruling his family with an iron hand from his sickbed, tyrannical patriarch Adam Penhallow is found murdered the day before his birthday. His entire family had assembled for his birthday celebration, and every one of them had the ways and means to commit the crime. As accusations and suspicion turn in one direction and then another, the claws and backstabbing come out, and no one is exempt from the coming implosion.

    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The characters were well-written, but the book didn't express any hope of any kind even through trials.
