    Story
    "Just a really nice romance"

    This is just a really nice romance novel: there's no mystery/suspense, sci-fi/fantasy, or plot twists and turns (not that romances WITH those things aren't good.) Every once in a while it's relaxing to listen to a straightforward, boy (re)meets girl story. The characters are pleasant, the plot is possibly probable, and the ending is sweet. It was a good way to spend roughly six hours while decorating for Christmas alone (kids at school, husband at work.)

    Rebecca de Leeuw was a huge, extremely pleasant surprise. Her voices are easy to listen to (they sound nice, even in their variety,) they are character-specific (you know who's speaking) and character-appropriate (young people sound young, etc.) Her intonation and characterization are spot-on. And she has a wonderful British accent, which I assume is authentic. She doesn't sound like (bitter lemon soaked) nails on a blackboard as some (Anne Flosnik) narrators do. There's never a monotone moment, nor an overly dramatic one. Since listening to this book I have purchased two more books that she narrated and have been even more impressed with her work.

    I rated this book pretty high because for a simple sweet romance I don't think you can get much better. Sure there are bigger, better books I've rated the same if not slightly lower, but they were in a different category of writing: bigger stories.

    Don't let the cover turn you away, or even the title, there's a little more here than one would expect. Because of its price I paid cash, but knowing what I do now, it's definitely worth a credit, too.

    Story
    "lose yourself for an hour or five"
    What did you love best about Invitation to the Boss's Ball?

    Don't be deceived that this is another run of the mill M&B. It is...but with a difference. The story line is easy on the ear with minimal romantic drama as per many others. Its told from both sides of the love requited and does not go overboard on the theatrics as some writers tend to do


    Which character – as performed by Rebecca DeLeeuw – was your favorite?

    The narrator did a very good narrate and her switch between characters easily identifiable with only slight changes to her monotone. Some may be put off by this, however, it beats those who try to emulate european accents which often puts a damper on a book. Well done Rebecca. Im not going to listen to the other M&B you have narrated.


    Any additional comments?

    I spent a day on the beach listening to this story, it was an enyoyable way to lose myself for a few hours
