I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
I very much enjoyed this book and finished it in two days. The story is entertaining and the romance is slowly developed. This is a clean listen since there is no descriptive sex. It is mentioned that it happens at some point towards the end but it's barely a mention. So if you like clean sweet love stories the this one is for you. Also the hero was a nice man with no experience as well so that was refreshing. I really liked it and will listen to the next installment. The narrator is magnificent!
Not quite as steamy as some of the romance novels (not a bad thing!) just a cute love story, with more humor about the Smythe-Smith musicale! I basically love anything Rosalyn Landor narrates...she gets all the voices just right.
Everything but the narrator who was wonderful as always. I'm sorry but this book was painful to get through. It was so boring.....very slow moving...not enough of anything. I must be missing something because so many reviewers loved this book.
I don't think my eyes could handle anymore eye rolling
It was a sweet story. It read like a novel from the 1800s. There was five minutes of love scene,but the rest was shallow and slow.
not that I know of,but she did a fine job.
I made it to the end.
If I were born in 1848, I might have found this interesting.
I listened to this book just for the whole purpose of getting to the end. Nothing exciting ever happens in the book, and it's one you'd listen to if you didn't have anything better to do. Of if you can't sleep. Lie down, relax and listen and trust me you'll be instantly asleep. Rosalyn Landor has a wonderful voice that coupled with a boring book puts you to sleep in a flash. If it wasn't for Rosalyn Landor I wouldn't have even gone through 30 mins of the book.
I know I will buy many more from an author when I listen to ones like this .I felt the characters come to life , I laughed out loud a few times , I listened in one sitting.Very well done .
I loved this sweet little story. Unlike a previous reviewer, I thought the characters were not flat at all. There was so much humor, and interactions between Honoria and her cousins felt so true to close family life. I liked the slowing dawning of emotions between people who had known each other almost all their lives. Rosalyn Landor is excellent as usual. Thinking there might be a story coming up between Daniel and the governess?
A mom, a wife, a friend, a happy ending addict, an audiobook junkie, a wine lover and geek wanna -be. I'm constantly looking to be blown awa
This was my first go at a Julia Quinn's book and I don't know if my expectations were to high or this wasn't her best effort, there's so many people who love her books that I don't know what to think.
I felt the characters a little flat and I never really got involved, I didn't hated it and I did like the way the romance was slow to develop, I love historicals because they call to my idealistic, romantic,tender and fairytale side, I just felt something was missing.
I love Rosalyn Landor, she has narrated some of my favorite audiobooks like: The entire Hathaway series by Lisa Kleypas.
