Publisher's Summary

Sir Waldo Hawkridge, wealthy, handsome, eligible, illustrious, and known as The Nonesuch for his athletic prowess, believes he is past the age of falling in love. But when he comes north to inspect his unusual inheritance at Broom Hall in the West Riding, his arrival leads to the most entertaining of ramifications.

    "Delightful!"

    I'm in the process of listening for the first time to all of the cherished and re-re- read Heyers. Eve Matheson's narration is is one of the best performances I've heard. Highly recommended!

    "Beautifully written and read aloud!"

    Excellent tone and soothing voice. The reader provides a variety of voices that make the dialogue a pleasure to listen to. Worth every penny. I listened to this while doing house chores.

    "Is that how it ends?!?!"

    Fun story with great characters and several laugh out moments, but the story seems to end abruptly. I had to replay the last chapter twice because I couldn't believe that was it.

    Story
    "Excellent narration; good but not the best of Heyer's novels"

    This Heyer novel is enjoyable but not one of my favorites. First, Waldo and Ancilla are off-putting names for our lovers, and whoever chose the picture that accompanies this audio, should be demoted. Hideous depiction of Waldo. In the last quarter of the novel, some of the characters talk and go on and on and on. I am talking to you, Mrs. Chartley. I don't know how the narrator stood it.

    Anyway, fairly enjoyable Heyer novel, and this audio of The Nonesuch is one I would listen to again.

    "Immensely Entertaining!"

    Ms. Matheson brought this wonderful madcap story to brilliant life! There were times when I laughed out loud. In fact, I'm still chuckling! Thank you for such an enjoyable performance. Ms. Heyer would be pleased.

    "slow "

    It was a slow start and unsatisfactory finish. I found myself cringing every time the narrative for tiffany came- which I guess was the point. But not my favorite book. There was not enough back story on the characters
