    Would you listen to The Wedding again? Why?

    Yes! I will surely will listen to it again. Love the story and the narrator does a pretty good job her voice is easy to listen to.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Both Brenna and Connor can't go wrong with both. The go together like bacon and eggs.


    What does Heather Wilds bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    When listening to a book is like having a bran new version of the book if it's done well and she does. She as a nice voice not scratchy nor gruff nor whinny (I hate whinny voices). But I wouldn't stop reading the print or e-book they all go together.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Blue Paint and Weddings

    Story

    The first book was a lot better at least that one had suspense in it, this on...Not.

    Well this one was way to long. It drags .
    I do love historical romance but they have to have more than gowns description, balls and 2 girls plotting to get their man.
    Didn't feel any connection nor anything real about either Elyse or Micheal. The love scenes were strongly lacking, some authors do know how to write them, Sandy Raven, does not.. And the plot fell much to short.

    I found the double narration less confusing than in the first book but the narrators were not good at voices and at times sounded like they were trying to hard.

    Story

    Marian Hussey does a real good job. Liked her voice not to high nor low.

    She can change the tone and intonation and do good accents for the characters.
    Liked the story, like the mixed matched household help from the butler to the maids and all in between.
    Liked the way it flowed smoothly, the action is right there almost at the beginning and it did keep me interested.
    The spy and the lady do go round for round and finally do get together.
    I think it was interesting enough that I will look for other books cause I'm sure Jacques, the young man who helped her in France will return in them and they didn't catch one of the bad guys.

    Story

    The story is good but I wasn't that fond of the 2 narrators.
    By switching from one to the other it took from smooth going of the story. It kinda broke the feelings and how it should of flowed.
    And their voices were not that good, neither one gave enough difference from one character to the other, except for the young ones and the Italian maid.

    I really like this story. It kept me captivated and that a big plus.
    I know a lot of controversy about the translation and some pronunciation are out there about this book but having no German or Maori knowledge nor how things were for the new settlers back then in New Zealand... I have to deal with this version.

    The narration was pretty good, voices were very recognizable from one male to the other as well as the female ones. As long as it was it was not boring nor was it stretch out.
    Will surely get the other books in the series.

    Good story and good series. Felt bad for Garret most of the times. His brother the Duke and his wife both had the knik to bring him down. Juliet does have a strong mind but a bit to pushy at times.
    Narrator as a real deep voice, great for a Duke or any man. And does good accents to go with them...but for the women voices, it wasn't that nice. Poor ladies all sounded like they were choking or sounded like they were speaking with a hot potato in their mouth.

An arrogant nobleman with a pirate's passions, he tasted the wildfire smoldering beneath Christina's cool charm and swore to possess her.... But the feisty and defiant Christina would not be so easily conquered. Mistress of her heart and of her fortune, she resisted Lyon's sensuous caresses.

    Liked it a lot when Christina popped up in England at the Tons balls and how she reacted to Lyon. How he takes charge kinda.
    Susan Duerden as usual did one heck of a job.
