The Original Miss Honeyford | [M. C. Beaton]

The Original Miss Honeyford

Miss Honaria Honeyford was sent to London to save the family fortune by hunting a wealthy husband - and being a loving (if not entirely dutiful) daughter, she obeyed. But if she was reluctantly willing to surrender her hand, this beautiful young lady who could ride, shoot, and argue with any man was not about to lose her head or heart to the dismal dandies of the Marriage Mart. First she met the arrogantly attractive Lord Alistair Stewart, who treated her infuriatingly like a little girl. And then she met the skillfully seductive Lord Channington, who treated her intoxicatingly like a desirable woman....

    "Miss Honeyford is a delight!"
    Any additional comments?

    Unlike the other reviewers, I admire and appreciate Lindy Nettleton's performance. I believe her to be an excellent narrator and have purchased many of Beaton's books read by Nettleton.

    Miss Honeyford is a delightful change from the usual young miss. I enjoyed this story very much. Lord Alastair is a wonderful chap and well, . . . all's well that ends well! Highly recommended! Great fun. Engaging characters. Very romantic.

    "Delightful!!"


    M. C. Beaton has done it again! She's packed a delightful, humorous, romantic story into a little over 5 hours of listening pleasure. A thoroughly enjoyable, light read.

    The heroine, Honey, has never been more than 20 miles from her country home, and has been more like a son, than daughter, to her widowed father. Now, needing to find a husband she sets out for London several days journey away--a journey with many mishaps along the way.

    Lindy Nettleton reads well, but is not a great performer, in my opinion...but does not detract from the story.

    I recommend "The Original Miss Honeyford" when wanting to be entertained without a lot of heavy emotions.

    Story
    "Brandy anyone?"

    Miss Honeyford was a quick and easy regency read, no sex for those who don't like it. It had potential while some parts were good, others bugged me. I did liked the tension and interactions that was between Lord Alistair and Honey, before they fell in love. While this book is not a laugh out loud kind of book, there were a couple of amusing parts. What bugged me was that Honey started out with a strong personality then basically became a regular debutant. She does eventually come back to herself, but with such a short book it didn't work as well. I felt like the main characters needed a little more time to fall in love. Honey and Alistair seemed to hate each other until they were in love, without much reasoning. I almost thought I missed a part when it happened. While this is a good book for a sale I wouldn't use a credit on it. Narrator was good.

    "Glad I took a chance on this book"
    Any additional comments?

    All I can say is WOW. I LOVED this book. The narrator was terrible but the book was great. A bit rushed at the end but it did not takemuch away from the story. I happened to be looking up a book and saw someone rating this book 5 stars but without a review. So I read some Amazon reviews and decided to purchase it. I am sooooo glad I did. I highly recommend it even though you'll have to suffer through the narrator.
