A book lover with a romantic soul, but willing to take a leap of faith. I LOVE to get sucked into a story and live there for a bit.
How can that many talented authors come together to make such a mess? I don't know but it happened here. This was a snooze fest and i only made it all the way through because I paid a full credit for it. This was a huge waste! pass!
32 years old and still addicted to happy endings!
It is a story about a matchmaker and a house full of lady's and gents needing to be matched up. Some humorous parts, but mostly the chase and submission of falling in love/lust . Each couple gets their own love scene with plenty of hot touching. My favorite parts of the book however were those with witty banter at the dinner table, and getting to hear inside 3 very different women's heads as they fall for the respected gentlemen we all know from the start HAS to be hers if the world were perfect and fair. Fun read.
Ended as expected for a romance
I could barely listen all the way through because of this narrator. All of the female characters sounded like they were 40-50 years old instead of young women in their teens/early 20's. The men all sounded like old men sitting around a table at their club, stuffy, no emotional range and old. I do not like this narrator and usually do not buy audiobooks she narrates. I had just listened to the second in the series of these books that was narrated by Susan Duerden(sp.) and just assumed she was the narrator.
I felt all the lighthearted interplay between characters was destroyed, because they all sounded so stuffy and old!
I was very glad that I had gotten this book on sale and had not used a credit for it.
A different narrator
Tell us about yourself!
I LOVE this book! The characters were wonderful and the three romances delightful. I smiled most of the time while listening. Get it, it'll be worth it.
this was a quick listen and I bought it because of the narator mostly. I enjoyed it, however this would have been a good anthology, I did not like that 3 authors are writing the same story even if there are different couples involved.
Audio-fiction ADDICT !
Loved it! 3 sweet short stories. Well written. Enjoyed the events and the characters. The narration is PERFECT!
I am quiet and love being comfortable. I love curling up in a corner either reading or listening to a nice romantic book.
I delight in Julia Quinn' books but this story from three different authors had me confused and trying to keep up. The only thing going for the book was the narrator, I love Rosalyn! Spare yourself and listen to something else . I finished listening to the entire book but I wish I would have not purchased it.
I found it hard to finish. I had to keep backing up because I kept falling asleep. I can't think of one thing that stands out. No humor, terrible romance, no mystery, I can't even say it's entertaining. I only gave it a 3 because the narration was good.
