Publisher's Summary

Lady Georgina Hawthorne has worked tirelessly to seal her place as the Incomparable for her debut season. At her first London ball, she hopes to snag the attention of an earl.

With money and business connections, but without impeccable bloodlines, Colin McCrae is invited everywhere but accepted nowhere. When he first encounters the fashionable Lady Georgina, he's irritated by his attraction to a woman who concerns herself only with status and appearance.

What Colin doesn't know is that Georgina's desperate social aspirations are driven by the shameful secret she harbors. Association with Colin McCrae is not part of Georgina's plan, but as their paths continue to cross, they both must decide if the realization of their dreams is worth the sacrifices they must make.

    Story
    "Because of the Narrator - it's terrible!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I think anyone who READS this book rather than listening to it would enjoy it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I only listened to the first 3 chapters, so not much. I had hoped it would be wonderful, like the last one.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She sounded as if she were reading, rather than telling a story. And the words didn't flow.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from An Elegant Façade?

    n/a - no scenes, only the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    If you listened to the first book in this series, don't waste your time with this one - it will be a huge disappointment.

    Story
    "Narrating gets better"

    The narrator wasn't the best at the beginning of the book, but it improved drastically as the store progressed. This was a sweet story which had be both loving and hating Georgina equally and the pace of the story moved along at a good speed. It was a nice listen overall.

    "So Refreshing"

    With our world in such turmoil, this book was a reminder of the importance of God's word and direction for our lives. He is the same yesterday, today and forever!

    Story
    "loved it!"

    I loved the first book in this series. I've listened to it at least 4 times! I Crack up every time. While the first book has the intrigue and somewhat of a comedic aspect, this one is on a more serious note. A good portion of this book soinds very familiar to the first at many of the situationsvare repeated, but told from the view ponts of the main characters in this book. It does seem a bit repetitive, but I really enjoy how this story makes you rethink how you viewed the characters in the first book...it really left me thinking!
    I love the narration of the first book so much I was really hoping this one would be similar...it's not my favorite, but I think the book overall hold up and is worth the listen...I'll probably end up re-listening to this one too!

    Story
    "subpar narration, great story."

    The narrator was clearly not British and struggled with both the English and Scottish accents. However, if one is able to get past that obvious flaw, the story was delightful - perfect light reading.
