    "A great story utilizing different personalitites"
    Where does In Pursuit of Eliza Cynster rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It would rank High as the others. Very good writer and the altimate story of the importance of family, and friends you keep a hold of.


    What other book might you compare In Pursuit of Eliza Cynster to and why?

    All the books are very good, independent of each other, and yet can still bring in some of the other charcters that mesh all together.


    Which character – as performed by Matthew Brenher – was your favorite?

    The all were very well done.

    Story
    "Congruent caracters, and great adventure"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Use your credit and enjoy, the Jeremy the shcolar and the Eliza the quiet Cynster make a great love story, growing into their own and living the present.


    What about Matthew Brenher???s performance did you like?

    Matthew Brenher kept the voices and pace perfectly in accordance to the different characters, including Royce, Devil and Tristan. It is the best performance yet.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to this book in two days; it was a great escape and brought me back to value the present.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to hear Angelica's adventure!

    very interesting and enjoyable story, clear presentation, draws a picture and entertains - the strong characters, a villan with whom one can empathise, a secondary villan who's vileness is reprehensible... thanks

    "Better than the first in the Series!!!!"
    Where does In Pursuit of Eliza Cynster rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I guess this book would rank right in the middle of all of the books I've listened too. It's not the best, but it's by far not the worst either.


    What other book might you compare In Pursuit of Eliza Cynster to and why?

    Most all of the books by Stephanie Laurens. Most of them are incredibly similar. I don't really compare Ms. Laurens with other Historical romance writers because all of her characters are almost identical and although some of her stories are unique she really never strays from her character traits.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked this second book in the Cynster Sisters Trilogy much better than the first book in the series. There was more action and the characters were able to admit their love without chapter after chapter of seeing who will or won't declare his/her love first.

    I really enjoyed this second book in the series and I'm looking forward to the third book. I'm glad I didn't skip this book as I started too based on the other comments here and on other sites. I recommend this book and think that it brings more to the story than the first in the series.

    It is one of the top books I have read

    I enjoyed Mr Brenher's reading of this story. I felt that it added to the experience greatly.

    "it is just too long...too long winded..."

    I like Stephanie Laurens, but this book is way too long. It spends too much time wondering through Scotland and giving the reader detailed routes to the border. I like the character, but get to the point before i die.

    Story
    "Wish I'd gotten in one of the $4.95 sales"

    I only paid $14.95 for this, but wish I'd gotten it in one of the $4.99 sales... I didn't read the first book in the series and I'm glad I didn't because the entire story was told in this story. The story felt like a "B" movie romance... not SL's usual style.. And while I usually rate the narrators very well simply because I love listening to them. I think this narrator was not the best choice for this book. He has a wonderful voice, but I found myself wondering how he would pull off the love scene when we FINALLY got to one. He didn't do too bad, but I still felt he was not the narrator for this book.

    Will I read the last book in the series? Probably yes if I can get it for a good price. I would like to fully understand WHY the Laird is kidnapping the Cynster sisters. Since the first book was rehashed so much I assume the full story will be revealed in the last book. I will be very disappointed if the lame "Momma's got a goblet and the Laird must humiliate a Cynster to retrieve it" is all we will learn. Also, I admit the main female character in this book was boring to me, she had no depth. Sounds like the next sister has much more spunk!

    Story
    "Filler for book three"

    Too much of the same. 2 kidnappings was very redundant with high tailing it to Scotland
    The story was a little more action packed than the first which was nice but the bond between the characters was a bit flat. These were both overkill to set up the third book, not sure why we had such similar story lines but u now expect a lot in the next one. The narrator has great male voices but the females r a little baby sounding. It makes the story telling a little annoying when the main characters are interacting Could have been shorter.
    Overall a decent listen.

    I am quiet and love being comfortable. I love curling up in a corner either reading or listening to a nice romantic book.

    "Good, could've been better!!!"

    I am a huge fan of Stephanie Laurens and I absolutely love the Cynster family and stories. I certainly was expecting this trilogy to be better especially the second book, I am so disappointed! I honestly hope that the third book is better than this one and they get an idea about the Laird and what he is after. Honestly, I am surprised they have no idea who he is or it is made so easy to kidnap the girls. Overall however, the books were a good listen.

    "no feeling to the story and very dull in developme"
    What could Stephanie Laurens have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    From the first book of the Cynster family, Devils Bride, the stories of the younger females is very tame and unimaginitive so unless she can come up with a better adventure I don't think anything can help this set of twins stories.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Matthew Brenher’s performances?

    sure, sometimes the performance has a lot to do with the story line


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    just humdrum same old nothing.


    Any additional comments?

    I usually lover her books but just not these.

    "Lost the plot"

    Oh dear - how sad. Stephanie Laurens was author who introduced me to the genre of historical romance, and I've most of her books - but this one has to be the worst. The plot is simply a repeat of the 'Viscount Breckenridge' book and the overblown sex scenes have become tedious, with an excessive use of superlatives. Come on Steph - do better than this or pack up writing.

    "spoken rather than narrated"

    Sadly Matthew Brenher did no more than read the words of this book. He brought neither the characters nor the story to life as so many narrators do. This was a pity because the story would have been quite enjoyable with a better narrator

    "A light hearted romp"

    I very much enjoy the Cynster stories and this is no exception. I enjoy stories that have the same characters in them and where they age. This is part of a mini series but can be read alone. It is perhaps not her best book but I still found it very entertaining.
