    "Great Book, Great Narrator, Poor Sound Editing"

    I greatly enjoyed this book. I have listened to several narrated by Virginia Leishman and have found her to be talented and greatly added to the telling of the tale. The characters are likable, relatable, and I found myself sad to hear the story end. The love scenes are steamy without being over the top. The only negative thing I will say is that it seems to have been poorly editied. You can hear too much of the narrator's breaths, sighs, teeth clicking, etc. But this seems to be unique to this series of novels. I have heard this narrator perform several other audiobooks and this was not an issue. If you can get over that, you will have a lovely story to enjoy.

    "Poorly Edited Narration"
    What disappointed you about Merely the Groom?

    The constant breaths and lip smacking during the narration. I wanted to scream. The storyline was good,but not good enough to get me through 1 hour of listening.

    I will have to read the book

    "merely a bad book"

    I can take a fair amount of improbable coincidence in a romance book - but this one was rediculous. The story was stupid, the description tedious, and the narrator sounded like she was sucking on lozenges the whole time. Do not waste the money -- wish I hadn't.
