Publisher's Summary

Born into two different classes, James and Camille shouldn't even know each other. But when the pursuit of a missing ruby brings them together, much more than a mere acquaintance is ignited.

The daughter of a curiosity shop owner, Camille would never be considered a lady. Nor does she want to be. With a fiery personality, she dreams of adventures far beyond the walls of her family's modest business. But when her father thrusts a mysterious box into her hands and disappears, her whole world - dreams and all - shifts.

James is an apothecary tending to the health needs of the town of Bentworth. His father, a well-known explorer and collector, is quite wealthy from the spoils of his adventures until one risky gamble and a stolen gem leave him on the edge of ruin. Seeking his father's approval, James picks up the hunt for the stolen ruby, leading him to the door of Camille's curiosity shop.

With both of their lives in danger as the ruby remains at large, James squires Camille away to the Bentworth School, believing that would be the last place her pursuers would look for her. They both find their hearts and dreams heading in a new direction, but before they are free to embrace their future, they must solve the mystery looming around them. The more they uncover, however, the harder it becomes to know whom to trust. And they begin to realize that recovering the ruby may require a great sacrifice: their newfound love and maybe even their lives.

    "Many Faceted Historical Romance"

    A lovely story with fully developed characters, some danger, a mystery, and a very sweet romance.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Curiosity Keeper to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version, I only listened to the audio version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narrator did a great job with the voices and I liked the thread of mystery that was in the story.


    Which character – as performed by Jude Mason – was your favorite?

    Camille


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

    Danger and romance follow Camille Iverness in this mysterious regency tale.

    "A bit slow..."
    Any additional comments?

    I thought this book was a bit too slow and predictable. It was a nice, easy, slow listen. The reader was fine.

    "Swept Along"

    I enjoyed the story line with a curiosity shop as the backdrop. I longed for more Spiritual meditations or conversations between the characters and God, the struggle of Faith in the midst of difficult circumstances. I liked the reader's ability to make the story real. However, I had difficulty keeping pace with her. I felt she read too fast, smoothly, but too quickly throughout the piece.

    Story
    "Good book, but read at too fast of pace."
    If you could sum up The Curiosity Keeper in three words, what would they be?

    Enjoyable, good book, clean.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Clean romance with a little bit of adventure


    Did Jude Mason do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    No, not really. I kept getting the different characters confused. Her fast paced reading didn't help.

    Story
    "Couldn't put it down"
    What did you love best about The Curiosity Keeper?

    Of course, the ending but I can't share that with you. I thought I had it figured out a couple of times but different things happened.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Curiosity Keeper?

    Camille's character was consistent throughout the book. I really appreciate that from the author. Even though I wasn't sure what she would do in each situation she always was true to her character as it had been introduced to the reader.


    Have you listened to any of Jude Mason’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I had not listened to Jude Mason previously but will probably look for more performances by this reader. She was able to capture different voices for many of the characters.


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

    At first I was able to listen a little bit at a time but as the book neared the end, I could not put it down.

    Would you try another book written by Sarah Ladd or narrated by Jude Mason?

    I would try another and I might try this one again.


    Has The Curiosity Keeper put you off other books in this genre?

    No definitely not, maybe I need to listen to it at another time.
