    "Fun Story, Good Reader, One Audio Editing Flaw"

    This was my first Madeline Hunter book, but it won't be my last (especially since I didn't realize when I downloaded it that it was the second book in a series!). Her characters are well-drawn, and I've always been a big fan of the marriage of convenience/forced marriage plot, which she uses with aplomb in this book.

    Polly Lee is a great reader---though the high-pitched/squeaky/baby-talk voice she did for the character Daphne did get annoying quickly.

    The one main problem I had with this recording is the lack of pauses at scene breaks, leading to confusion as scenes ran together with no sense that there's a change of time, setting, characters, etc., which is a problem with the production/editing of the audio, not the reader or author.

    "first review"

    The story was very good, and held my interested. Good mix of mystery and romance. However, I felt the narrator was without any emotion. At times I thought the person reading was a teenager. I would have given a five star rating with a different narrator.
