Publisher's Summary

Rumors and Gossip . . . The lifeblood of London

When Olivia Bevelstoke is told that her new neighbor may have killed his fiancée, she doesn't believe it for a second, but, still, how can she help spying on him, just to be sure? So she stakes out a spot near her bedroom window, cleverly concealed by curtains, watches, and waits . . . and discovers a most intriguing man, who is definitely up to something. Sir Harry Valentine works for the boring branch of the War Office, translating documents vital to national security.

He's not a spy, but he's had all the training, and when a gorgeous blonde begins to watch him from her window, he is instantly suspicious. But just when he decides that she's nothing more than an annoyingly nosy debutante, he discovers that she might be engaged to a foreign prince, who might be plotting against England. And when Harry is roped into spying on Olivia, he discovers that he might be falling for her himself . . .

    "Good listen on a long car ride"

    I really enjoyed this story. The narrator was wonderful and the story was sweet and amusing. It made my long road trip fly by.

    "Silly fluff"

    Somehow I didn't realize that this was going to be a dime romance novel. There is some witty dialog, but overall, it's predictable and unmemorable.

    "A Laugh Out Loud Romance"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a historical romance that resembles the best of the Hollywood screwball comedies!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of What Happens in London?

    The scene where Harry and Olivia read a Gothic Novel to each other from their windows.

    "Adorable"
    If you could sum up What Happens in London in three words, what would they be?

    Fun, flirty and vivacious


    Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I adore Rosalyn Landor. I get so wrapped up in her storytelling I forget it's only one narrator. She is flawless and her characters are so alive. She did a fantastic job with these two.

    "Stays in London?"

    This was a light hearted, fun book. Not overly funny as indicated in previous reviews but does have a fun tone. I would have like to have seen more misunderstanding antics going on between the two leads. This is a good book if you want a regency romance without having too serious of content. The narrator was good; I have enjoyed Rosalyn Landor before.

    "Absolutely Perfect!!!"

    Of all the romance novels I've listened to, this is my absolute favorite. It has everything, Great Dialog, Wonderful Characters, Lots of Humor and of course... Romance. I can't say enough about the performance and the story. I loved Olivia & Harry and Sebastian is just hysterical! This is a laugh out loud joyride. Highly Recommended!!!

    "Great and funny book"

    Love Rosalyn Landor and this was a good book. I really liked Olivia as a character.
    there were some confusing parts of the book and a few plot holes but overall I enjoyed it.

    "good fun read"
    What made the experience of listening to What Happens in London the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed this book. It was a good "light" listen. The story was interesting, drawing a picture of two characters and then showing us how they meet and fall in love. I'm a sucker for a romance. (especially when it doesn't get too racy).

    "A bit of a sleeper, but a good love story"

    I am not much of a love story kind of guy,and at the beginning I almost quit, but this is a lovely little yarn, engaging without being too intense. A good listen.
