    Story
    "Jeanette Learns Her Lesson"
    What did you love best about The Wife Trap?

    I loved the way Jeanette and Darragh sparred with each other in their game of wills.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Wife Trap?

    When Jeanette drew a less than flattering picture of Darragh.


    What about Bianca Amato’s performance did you like?

    The way she could differentiate each of the voices. I love her English accent.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Does she or doesn't she? Only her husband knows for sure.

    Story
    "Taming of the Shrew"

    This is a great adaptation of the classic Shakespeare play Taming of the Shrew. It has humor, sensitivity, and romance…all the best ingredients for a romance. The narrator does a good job with the Irish lilt, her voice is soothing and easy to listen to. I’ve listened to the whole series and will again and again.

    "SPOILED BRAT!"

    I didn't want to read this book because Jeanette was a spoiled rotten little girl. She does not deserve someone so good. But I had to because it's part of a series and I am OCD in doing things in order. I don't agree with some of the reviewers saying Darragh abused her by making her work, she deserved to learn how to be grateful. I am hoping the third book is better.

    Story
    ""What a Man""
    If you could sum up The Wife Trap in three words, what would they be?

    Money isn't everything


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Wife Trap?

    Darragh and Jeannette's caught in their compromising situation' when Darragh discovered that Jeannette was not a virgin. How Darragh send Jeannette's maid to visit her family and surprised Jeannette at the castle. I also loved it when Jeannette fell in the mud!


    Which character – as performed by Bianca Amato – was your favorite?

    Earl Darragh, what an Earl! I loved him. I think I loved him more than Adrian and Kit.
    A man with so much but yet so humble and caring.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I have read the other 2 books and although I loved O'Brien a lot in this book, I think my choice order is: Husband Trap, Marriage Trap, Wife Trap. I did laugh quite a bit when O'Brien teaches Jeannette his varous lessons and it did have an impact on her because she was not as annoying in Marriage Trap, she was a little more human. I commented to myself that Bianca's character narration was starting to run-together because she made Toddy sound like Darragh. I wished the ending of this book could have been a little steamier. I wanted Jeannette to get pregnant in this book but because I read Marriage Trap already I knew she had children. I loved the whole story of O'Brien deceiving her about his status, she deserved a little come-down. Overall, I enjoyed the book, great work ladies!!


    Any additional comments?

    Now that I have read all 3 books, my favorite characters order are: Violet, Darragh, Adrian, Kit, Liza and Jeannette. I love the author and narrator's work. I look forward to reading more of their works.

    Story
    "Spoiled Jeannette"

    I do not feel bad for Jeannette what so ever. She is so God awfully spoiled that its hard to like or feel for the character. Earl Darragh O'Brien is way too good for her and I honestly would have been urghing him to find someone else to be his wife. So Jeannette is shipped off to Ireland after her deception was revealed in Husband Trap out of shame from her family. Jeannette is staying with much older cousins in the Irish countryside, which is completely borning for her royal highness who is used to being the belle of the ball in London society. Jeannette is constantly looking her nose down on people and throwing her title around like Ireland should be so lucky to have her presence of being a true English born lady. Jeannette is attracted to an architect who is rebuilding a wing of her cousin's house. They have few run in with stolen kisses and what not but he could never be a suitable husband for Jeannette because of his lack of title. One night while Jeannette is hosting a ball at her cousins house she goes too far with O'Brien and were caught red handed by all of her male relatives, That was a funny scene. Jeannette being publicly compromised she has no choice but to wed Darragh O'Brien, oh boy does she throw a fit being force to marry an untitled man, but the jokes on her cause he turns out to be an Earl of Mullholand which makes Jeannette a Countess (not like she deserves it). O'Brien teaches Jeannette a lesson by letting her believe that she is married to a poor man and they live in a small cottage where Jeannette is forced to cook, clean and sew for several months.

    The book have a good story line I just can't feel for Jeannette, I just want to constantly smack her. I did like Husband Trap and Wedding Trap better because they had more of a likeable main character. But you must tread through this book to get through the next. Like I said it is not a bad book or story line, you are just going to hate the main character.

    "OK"

    This story was just OK, the narrator was great but the main character Janette was so snotty and rude that she was unbearable.

    "Really enjoyed this book!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Wife Trap the most enjoyable?

    I thought this was a good sequel to Husband Trap. Even though the main character didn't play a very good role in the first book, she made up for it in this book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I was very excited to drive to work every morning so I could listen.
