Worth the read. Did not dissapoint. My favorite narrator and one of my favorite authors. Great story I just wish I was able to experience more from them as a married couple. They took so long to get together and then it seemed to be over. But I trust the author and will wait patiently for the next book in the series.

As an earlier review states, the narrator's voice was a bit soft for the strength of the main character. She did a better job with the supporting characters in my opinion (the men). It was not enough to stop me from completing the book and liking it. I do feel however that I may have loved it if she had given more feeling to the voice of the main character. The only thing I can say toward the story is I wished the main character had expressed more detailed feelings during certain times. This book has a lot of twists as it progresses. If you are easily confused you may want to consider keeping a pen handy to write down some facts towards the end. Overall 4/5 stars.

Don Tillman, professor of genetics, has never been on a second date. So when an acquaintance informs him that he would make a "wonderful" husband, his first reaction is shock. Yet he must concede to the statistical probability that there is someone for everyone, and Don sets out to find the perfect partner. She will be punctual and logical - most definitely not a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver. Yet Rosie Jarman is all these things. She is also beguiling, fiery, intelligent - and on a quest of her own....

I generally do not try new things. For me the fact that the book was in the romance genre, from the male's point of view and had a male narrator definitely made this one unusual for me with all three dates in one. But I have been watching the rating for this book hold strong for too long and I was in the mood for something different. Narrator and story line were amazing! Whatever you are thinking that will try to convince you to try it another day. Ignore it! This whole book was very well written and performed! Bravo!

Miss Minerva Lane is a quiet, bespectacled wallflower, and she wants to keep it that way. After all, the last time she was the center of attention, it ended badly - so badly that she changed her name to escape her scandalous past. Wallflowers may not be the prettiest of blooms, but at least they don't get trampled. So when a handsome duke comes to town, the last thing she wants is his attention.

I did not feel this was predictable but it was your classic happy ending historical romance story. It kept with all of the general unofficial rules of these types of stories. I liked the story, it was traditional in a sense but I love this narrator she made it come alive.
