    "Mystery and romance"

    Delightful listen. The mystery was very nicely constructed. I loved the returning characters as well as a couple of new ones that were introduced. The story took some nice twists and turns and ended happily. The narrator does a great job of creating the characters. Worth the listen. I'm sorry the next Tobias and Lovina story hasn't been written yet.

    "Late for the Wedding"

    I enjoyed this sequel very much. The narrator is a new favorite. A fun romantic/mystery/comedy.

    Story
    "The Absolute Best"
    If you could sum up Late for the Wedding in three words, what would they be?

    Riviting, thoughful, passionate


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Imogen since she portrayed a strong, principled, passionate and smart woman; very relatable even to our modern women.


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

    Hey tone, expression and accent brings the book alive. I can easily imagine being in the Old English City and part of the Ton.


    If you could rename Late for the Wedding, what would you call it?

    Memento Mori Men


    Any additional comments?

    I absolutely love Amanda Quick.... Was introduced at the Roanoke Public Library in 1995 and I've been a fan since. The books do come alive when narrated, especially in an English accent... Audible has blessed me since I now have unlimited access all the way in the Caribbean.

    "Wonderful story, poorly narrated"

    I tremendously enjoy Amanda Quick's novels, they are engaging and fun. This is one of my favorite's, I enjoy Tobias & Lavinia's interactions. However, the English accent of the narrator was forced and consequently she overly enunciated each and every word which was very distracting to the story. A real shame...

    "Very unrealistic historical mystery/romance."

    This started quite well, but I soon got bored with it.
