Disappointing

I had trouble getting into this book. The attraction between the main characters lacked depth...perhaps because they fell in love in 24 hours. Also, the "passion" was not emotionally charged. The scene in which they were first in danger (trying not to give it away) was compelling but I wouldn't call the balance of the book much of a nail-biter. I wish I had spent the credit on something else!

Great read. Great performance.

Jo Beverley writes intelligent, intricate and intriguing period romances. I know I will not be disappointed with her books but this particular one was most enjoyable. Both the heroine and hero are charismatic and charming Their situations and interactions are at turns funny, engaging and heart wrenching. It was an interesting twist how she included already established characters in the story. It brought satisfaction to visit the Mallorins again. I will re listen to this one multiple times.
