    Story
    "Snobbish annoying rather stupid heroine"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I haven't even finished this book and I am so mad at the heroine. What a fool! Sam really cares for her and all she cares about is social position and what is expected. Even now with an hour left she scoffing at love as if it is the most ridiculous thing she has ever heard. She keeps saying she is trying to avoid a broken heart but really the girl is a broken down snobbish harpy who won't admit she is wrong even if it means she ( horrid Deliah) will be unhappy. He tries to talk to her several times and the women tells him the same tired line over and over we aren't right for each other it wouldn't work blah blah blah.....
    At this point I don't care if Sam and Deliah ever see each other again.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There isn't one!


    Was The Scandalous Adventures of the Sister of the Bride worth the listening time?

    No

    Story
    "Boring! Didn't bother finishing."
    What disappointed you about The Scandalous Adventures of the Sister of the Bride?

    I was disappointed with the dialog. The characters talked, but didn't really say much. There was no tension between the hero and heroine.


    What was most disappointing about Victoria Alexander’s story?

    The whole premise of the story was that the hero/heroine are meeting each other after a night of passion. From what I heard of the heroine, this was highly unlikely. I just couldn't see her getting over herself enough to do something like that.


    What didn’t you like about Susan Duerden’s performance?

    She made the hero sound like he was on downers.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I can't think of any.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your time, money or credit!

    Story
    "Boring story full of blah blah blah nonsense."

    Well I made it to about 43% and this story is so boring. I will say 90% if this book is dialogue and I love dialogue in my books the more the better, but OMG I want it to be relevant. Do we really have to have dialogue about teacups? The dialogue is all nonsense.
    This is my 3rd Victoria Alexander book I have tried and all of them have been a YAWN FEST.. I have officially quit buying her books to dull story lines lacking plots and a whole lot of filler nonsense.

    As for the narration I love Susan Duerden and she couldn't even help this story be any better. Susan Duerden reads with such emotion as called for, the men sound like men and everyone gets their own distinct voice. She does not disappoint in her narrations.

    I cannot recommend this book for the story at all. I do recommend the narrator.

    Ultimately at 43% I quit the book and did not finish it. It was killing my brain cells.

    Retired. My hobbies are knitting, sewing and sports. To busy doing hobbies to be able to read so audible books are great for me. Also enjoy listening when driving on a long road trip.

    Story
    "Reader took away rather than enhanced"

    Reader made male characters sound like they had just crawled out from under a rock rather than be romantic leads. Female voices were not much better but at least they did not make me feeI I needed to wash up after listening to them.

    "Didn't really keep my attention...."

    I admit that I am a bit jaded, but this story simply did not grab my attention. I felt it was ok but not great.

    Story
    "The wonderful Mr Russell"

    I purchased this book on sale and thought I could do worse for 4.99. Then I began listening to it and truly enjoyed it, Surprised? Yes I certainly was. An Adorable hero and the heroine was cute too. A bit caught up in her own issues but nevertheless cute. I enjoyed it and I hope you will too :)
