I thoroughly enjoyed The Rejected Suitor! The story was light and enjoyable with fun & interesting plot twists. I've only recently discovered these re..Show More »gency books and find them delightfully distracting. I appreciated the light hand taken in the romance details. While some books are guilty pleasures that you would not want to be overheard, I could listen to 'Suitor' and not cringe if my children caught some of the narration. And speaking to the narration, Ms Hewitt's performance was spot on. I literally felt like I was meeting different and distinct characters, even forgetting it was only one person voicing them at times! From the dottering old aunt to the overbearing brother to the minor characters, the care the author gave to their creation was realized in the narrator's skillful performance.
This book was exactly as promised. I wanted a fluffy fiction, not a historical documentary and that is what I got. Ms McCarthy wove a fun fantasy tapestry and Ms Hewitt spun the tale into vibrant life with her lyrical and lovely voice. Thank you ladies!
This is a very sweet romance that flows nicely. Totally clean, no smexy stuff going on here.
I generally liked the story but found Stephen to..Show More » be arrogant most of the time. Had I been Elizabeth, I might have slapped him a time of two. Fortunately things work out nicely in the end.
Really great cast and I expect to see some of the supporting characters as leads in other books in the series.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Pearl Hewitt, who does a great job. She has a really lovely voice that makes the read more enjoyable. Her pace is swift and really moves along keeping the pace steady. Her voices were fabulous and really consistent. I will definitely look for more of her work.

For me out of all the book series .... I love this book more. It was hard for me to pick and choose but this book had it all. You get the beginning pr..Show More »ologue of how Jane and Roderick met and how it all begin. I have to admit this book had me guessing. Listening to this audiobook was wonderful. I can close my eyes and feel like it was happening right now. For me the audiobook brought it alive. Don't get me wrong ... Reading a book is still a good hobby to do, but listening to the audiobooks has it perks. For example, I must have read the book way to fast and miss some parts and was able to catch it this time. I was able to just relax and close my eyes while just listening to this book. There are many more perks but you get what I am trying to say. The storyline gives you what you want and more than you can hope. I would DEFINITELY recommend it!
