    "Good Story. Okay narration."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this book to a friend, as I would with all BJ novels. However, I would suggest that you read the book before listening to the audio book. I think you could get the wrong impression of how great a writer Ms BJ is if you only listen to this performance.


    What didn’t you like about Shari Peele’s performance?

    I usually love Shari Peele's narrations. In fact, I was excited to see that she was narrating this story. However, this was not one of her best performances. The meter was off, and it was very slow. It felt like it was dragging. Also her voices sounded pretty similar, especially the male characters. Her accents were also off. I have heard her do a really good Spanish inflected English accent in other audio books, but in this one it was just off at times. I love her narration of modern stories, but I didn't really care for her performance of this historical romance.

    "Captivating Story"

    I usually shy away from historical romances...I don't know why. After this one, that will no longer be the case. This story kept me intrigued throughput & I finished it in just a few hours.
