James Vickers once believed honor and family duty were his life's work. Now he knows better, and he's appointed himself as silent witness to his father's sins. His greatest goal is to act as the continuously pricking thorn in his lordship's side - and scandal is his greatest weapon.
Propriety is Miss Adelaide Stockton's most important asset. She must be all that is prim and proper if she's to live down her parents' misdeeds and have any hope of catching a husband. She must avoid scoundrels like Vickers at all costs.
Yet fate has thrown them together and given each a key to the other's ambition. A bargain is struck. But together they find that gaining what one desires most is far more difficult than a waltz in the park.

This is a lovely and interesting romance that keeps your attention. The attraction between Adelaide and Vickers is believable and super romantic. I was quickly brought into the story and could not put it down. Elizabeth Klett is a fantastic narrator and makes the characters interesting and believable. A great audible book!
A Waltz in the Park by Deb Marlowe is a fantastic novella that was hard to put down. Not ever having read or listened to any other Half Moon House book, or any other book by Deb Marlow for that matter, I wasn't sure what to expect. I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for a review and was pleasantly surprised with this complete story and loved both lead characters who were well developed. At almost four hours, it's the perfect length.
Adelaide Stockton is the pinnacle of propriety who is on the marriage mart after her mother's death and father's abandonment. James Vickers hates his father because of his poor treatment of women and believes him to be a traitor to the Crown. Because of his father's position and past misdeeds, James does everything to make his father look bad, including acting scandalously and pretending to be the worst sort of rake. Adelaide and James first find themselves glancing at each other across a crowded ballroom, then confiding in each other in order to obtain proof of his father's treachery, and finally waltzing together in the park by the end of the book. I loved the ending!
Elizabeth Klett’s narration is simply fantastic. She really brought the characters to life, giving each character their own distinct voice. She was very believable and helped me become totally engrossed in the story. I can't wait to read my next book by Deb Marlowe and narrated by Elizabeth Klett!
I am at that half a century mark in years. I enjoy audiobooks,cats,rats and most days my family,not necessarily in that order!lol
