Honoria Smythe-Smith is:A) a really bad violinist
Marcus Holroyd is:A) the Earl of Chatteris
Together they:A) eat quite a bit of chocolate cake
It's Julia Quinn at her best, so you know the answer is...
D) all of the above

Love historical romances; smart, imperfect people who find love when they are not looking for it.
This is a light and fun story. It begins to drag a bit in the middle and you will want to help the characters along. But stay with it -- you will be glad you did.
The ending is charming and surprising. The story comes back around to a true crescendo. I was smiling all through the last.
Rosalyn is consistent, she defines each character well making it easy to dive into the story.
I loved the ending musical. Delightful.
So many books, so little time!
The humour and the fact that the central characters were not prone to fits of the vapours or being overbearing! Marcus isn't a rake; he's just a decent man who is a bit shy and Honoria is loving and proud of her somewhat bonkers family!
Oh, where to start? She's far and away my favourite narrator. Her performances are always well thought-out and she sounds as though she's actually read the book a few times and spent time understanding the characters. She's outstanding when it comes to the female characters, giving each one a clearly different voice, and her elderly dowagers are a hoot!
The part where it dawned on Honaria that Marcus really didn't have anyone to turn to or look after him.
This is perfect if you're in the mood for something light and fluffy - and Rosalyn Landor can't be bettered when it comes to historical romance.
Audio-fiction ADDICT !
I was waiting for this book for a long time. And I always have high expectations of Julia. She did not meet up with my expectations in this book . The romance was late to start . The interaction between the two main characters was disappointing and unsatisfactory . It was ok but not WOW . The narration was splendid as always . Well done Rosalyn
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 was familiar to the author's work and have enjoyed other books by her. Her work is always very sweet, clean and almost naive in its simplicity. At the same time, and keeping that in mind, they offered a good time.
Unfortunately, this audiobook was narrated by a woman that sounded like she was reading a story for kindergarteners. I couldn't get past her childish, overly sweet and almost condescending reading. Her treatment of the story made a book that already wasn't very strong, sound impossibly ridiculous.
I love this series so much I have listened to it now 3 times. I'm so happy Audible has received the last book to the series. If u have never listened to Julia Quinn books this is the series to start with. Each book gets better and better and u can't wait to get to the next book. I love all of the people in these books. I hope u enjoy the series as much as I do. The narrator is amazing I enjoy Roselyn and how u can tell each character as she reads. HAPPY LISTENING 😊😊.
The Audio was boring, no inflictions in vocals.
Not this author or vocal person.
Boring story, boring vocals.
The main characters!
I cant even get into this audiobook because the narrator puts me off. I have tried (listened on and off for about 2 hrs) but the voice is so awful I cant follow the story. I have purchased and read every JQ book - and listened to "Ten Things I Love About You" - which was great. But I have wasted a credit on this one. Pleeeeeeeease dont ever use her again.
I gave it one star just because it's a JQ book. I'm now going to have to download it to my Kindle.
