Blazing a trail to the top of the romance best-seller lists, Anne Ashley’s scintillating novels set her devoted fans’ hearts aflame. The Viscount’s Scandalous Return stars Viscount Blackwood, a man who spent nine years in exile after being accused of killing his father and brother. He was saved from the gallows thanks only to the testimony of a young woman he’d never met. Now that he’s back, he’s on the hunt for the real killer and he’s aided by this same young lady - Miss Isabel Mortimer, who’s grown into a stunning vision of beauty and quite the amateur sleuth.

I would definitely listen to this story again. It had an interesting, yet solvable mystery. The narration was really good. It was a clean story with characters that felt real for that time period.
This story reminded my of a light version of a Masterpiece Theatre movie on PBS. The narrator sounds like she really is British and not a pretender.
The heroine was strong and smart, yet caring. The hero was also focused on solving the mystery of the deaths of his father and brother while being portrayed as a considerate man who had
The story and narration made for a good listen. I would definitely download more Anne Ashley books, especially those read by Emerald O'Hanrahan.
A G-rated story with likable characters that started off strong but did fizzle out a bit midway through. The mystery took center stage but it was very obvious who the villain was and there were quite a few "Duh!" moments. The romance was sweet and light and the heroine was spunky enough to keep things going. I really prefer more physical interactions to my stories but though light in content, I ended this one feeling glad I had gone along for the ride. Narrator suited the story well.
