Publisher's Summary

London weather is chilly - and the social scene even more so. Luckily, Bridget Forrester is just getting warmed up.

Bridget longs to meet a gentleman who doesn't mention her beautiful sister upon shaking her hand. But since being branded a shrew after a disastrous social season, Bridget knows she’s lucky to even have a man come near her. It's enough to make a lady flee the country. So Bridget heads to Venice for music lessons with the renowned Italian composer Vincenzo Carpenini, with whom she's been corresponding. But not only is Carpenini not expecting her, he doesn’t even remember her! His friend, theater owner Oliver Merrick, does, though. And one look into her tantalizing green eyes has him cursing his impulsive letter-writing, which brought her across the continent. Yet before Merrick can apologize, Carpenini has ordered her away. Little does either man know that they will soon be embroiled in a wager that will require the beautiful Miss Forrester's help - or that there’ll be far more at stake in this gamble than money.

No Blue Raven

The story was good, but lacked the mystery and intrigue of the other books in the series. The Blue Raven is not even mentioned in this book.

A solid romance and a splendid listen

So different, not your cookie cutter, roll your eyes, story/plot. it took me awhile to finally download and so glad I did. This is a steady listen, with well rounded characters, and an atypical heroine and hero. This is not a heart pounding adventure and/or with steamy sex scenes, but a lovely story, good pacing accompanied with an excellent narrator. The book gave me a reset to the ‘average’ writing or ‘jump the shark’ plots circulating in this genre, as well as finding something other than book 4, 5.... 11, 12 of a series.

Save the best for last.

I enjoyed the other three books in this series, however I found myself lost in this story. Much as the heroine Bridget loses herself in music, this story was such a pleasure to me. I'm not certain if it were the plot, the characters, or a beautiful symphony of all efforts coming together but this book is truly a treasure. Give it a listen, perhaps you'll even want to subtly underlay the story with Symphony no. 9.

A Love Story and a Romance

Some reviewers have commented that they did not finish this book because they found it too tedious. They completely missed out because the last part of the story was worth waiting for. The first parts framed and set-up what the last was built upon, very much like Beethoven’s 9th Symphony. The tale takes readers for a ride. Pieces of it, that might seem mundane or tedious, are needed for the crashing effect of the ending.

Kate Noble writes stories of love and romance. She does not write the pornography so many authors of this genre rely upon. Cheap fiction that can be devoured, tossed and forgotten, before one quickly moves to the next read, which is just like the one before it. Kate writes of love between her characters. They experience the mysterious, deep, moving, and thrilling emotions of falling in love with their one and only soul mate. She writes in a romantic style that is poetic as she describes the sights, sensations and fragrance of the world around the lovers, as it would be noticed by two people who are falling in love. The beautiful descriptions of Venice in this book allowed me to travel there to see the subtle beauty of the city, in tucked away corners, that are not in the tourist traps. She writes from her heart, for where else could anyone notice the enchantment of the wet sheen on cobblestones? She paints with words, as the greatest talents do.

The narrator is a perfect pairing. Alison, herself, disappears as she single handedly brings everything and everyone to colorful life. Her characterizations are consistent. She perfectly presents the nuances of a broad range of emotions that any of the characters are likely experiencing, as well as how they would most likely express them. She is enormously talented, and I would take a chance on anything she reads.

Life in music.

Such a wonderful and adventurous journey.
Brigid stumbled hard in her first season, her second didn’t really open.
Little did she know how much her destiny would be tied to Venice.
So heartfelt and lovely.

Not worth the time

Book 2 and 3 were great. Book 1 not so much and this, Book 4 of the series. I shut it off after 6 chapters.

Interesting detour from the typical regency HR

refreshingly original premise for a HR. an enjoyable glimpse into a different aspect of the regency era than typical regency/society plots and settings. touching and beautiful story.

So hard to get through!

When I saw all the wonderful reviews I thought I needed to listen to this book! After listening to it I totally did not understand the The good reviews! For me, it was so boring, nothing exciting! I don’t know if I’ll even listen to “If I Fall” if it’s anything like this book! Good narrator though.

Enjoyed the series

I really enjoyed the ongoing story lines and the development and growth of the characters from the previous stories.
The Italian accent by the narrator left a bit to be desired but other than that, it was fine.

Wonderful!

As much as I enjoy Kate Nobles' ability to write a great story it's the narration of Alison Larkin the has hooked me on this series. She's absolutely the best narrator I've ever heard!
