Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
This is the third book in the series and in my opinion it is the best. Also in the series is Miranda Cheevely Secret Diaries and What Happens in London. This is a sweet and simple romance that easily keeps your attention. Although I didn't mind the narrator, I didn't care overly for the male voice impression.
I really enajoy Julia Quinn's work, however I found the narrator to be annoying after a while of listening to her. Julia's books always tend to have good humor, mix with interesting char, however much of the wit and humor I so enjoy was lost by the narrator tone of voice, or intones at given times. I actually purchased the book in paperback half way through the reading to finish it and found the book far more enjoyable that way.
"Romantic but racy in the Pride & prejudice era"
This is the third book in the Bevelstoke series. (No1 was The secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever & No2 was What happens in London). It is up to Julia Quinn's usual standard - romantic but a bit racy and all set in the Pride & Prejudice era.
I liked how it flowed from the first two books but that the references to them were such that you could read it without having read the first two books.
She emphasised the emotions really well and brought it to life.
Yes, I couldn't 'put it down' and even missed one of my favourite programme on TV to finish it off.
