What a great way to tell a story that rarely happened in that time but you want to hear about. There are women who beat out their society duties and this is a great show of the story in a complicated love story. Never too repetitious. Perfectly balanced.
Wonderful - I'm on to book 3 and 4 but the narrator's voice in those does not sound as nice and appeasing as this narrators. Great voice over work by the narrator fyi in this book and the first. Can't understand why the same person didn't voice all the books as is generally standard.
Lively, fun, entertaining.
Writing and narration that made the story flow well and made the characters come to life. I wanted to stay with it, and found a fun romance to the end.
This one is different from the other I listened to because this one is done in an English accent. McLaughlin sounded like one of the sisters in Downton Abbey and really did a good job making me see and feel each character.
It flowed quite evenly, I thought. Perhaps a typical romance story, but fun nonetheless.
I look forward to more by the same author and narrator.
