Publisher's Summary

Born into affluence, Mia Stanley is a winsome socialite with a knack for matchmaking. She's also a writer for Godey's Lady's Book magazine, much to the dismay of her family - and their society friends. A proper young lady of her social standing isn't meant to labor in such a way, but Mia has always had a way with words.

When her writing draws her into the world of downtrodden seamen's wives on Philadelphia's docks, Mia uncovers an alarming scheme that puts her in harm's way. But her heart ends up on the line as well. Has her determination to always make a match driven away the one man whose esteem she covets?

    Story
    "I liked it!"
    Would you listen to A Lady of High Regard again? Why?

    Yes. I liked the old fashioned Jane Austen feel of the book. It reminded me of Emma.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love when you see a character discover themselves before your eyes. The story was fun and flowed well. I didn't get bored once.

    I love books! All kinds... classics, mysteries, Christian fiction, suspense and action! I'm also a sucker for anything romantic. ;) And just recently started getting into some non-fiction, philosophical books.

    Story
    "Simple easy listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Lady of High Regard to be better than the print version?

    I think that the reader/listener would get the same impact of the story in either format.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That it was a simple easy listen. It's what I pretty much expected when I bought it. I just wanted something that I didn't have to put too much into while listening to it, and it did just the job. Cute sweet story with a bit of a mystery and intrigue to it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I can't really say that one scene was my favorite.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?

    The character seemed to repeat a LOT of the information over and over again. I don't think it was necessary to repeat the plight of the seamen's wives over and over again with each person that the main character talked to. It was at LEAST 5 people she relays the info to and each time it's the exact same description. As a reader, I found it a bit annoying and was like, "ok, let's just get on with the story already!" The same happened with other information and conversations throughout the book, which is why I gave the story 3 stars instead of 4.

    The main character was a bit immature and slightly annoying. As smart as she seemed to be, she made some really dumb choices. Also, I expect a lot in my Christian romance stories, and as good as this one, it seemed a bit labored in the religious area. Like the author had the story and was like, "oh, I'm a Christian author... better put in some Christianity." It felt out of place instead of being an integral part of the story. It would have been the perfect opportunity for the main character to share the Lord with the seamen's wives who had been taken advantage of, and to have them all pray together or something, and for it to be spread in that way. But I feel this was a completely missed opportunity on the author's part.

    Simple easy listen to a cute story. Some annoyances, but overall cute. I'll most likely get the rest of the series for the heck of it.
