I was expecting very little from this ..Show More »historical romance novella. First of all, this was a freebie, and with only $1.99 extra for the matching audiobook, a total bargain. Second of all, this was an unknown author to me, with some very mixed reviews from my Goodreads friends. However, this was a very sweet story, with a smart, interesting heroine.
I adored the female MC, something that I sometimes struggle with, but I really liked her control and her sensible nature. She was really refreshing, honestly. My main complaint was not the characters or the storytelling, but in how FAST the romance progressed. I could have used waaaay more relationship development than this book gave me.
In terms of audiobook narration, Stevie Zimmerman did a lovely job. She did excellent male and female voices (a MUST for me), and acted out the scenes well. However, the actual recording quality was a little "home recorded" for me. It was a tiny bit muffled sounding, but I got used to it as the story went on, and I didn't mind it much.
While it wasn't perfect, it was an easy, quick listen and an EXCELLENT deal. Historical audio lovers should snatch this one up.
This was delightful! A short little bit of fun. Great narration. I'd like it better if it were longer and gave more detail about the secondary charact..Show More »ers. But I really enjoy Ms Ridley's work.
