This Story Is Sweet

Publisher's Summary

Just when he'd fobbed off the last brat, another appeared to take her place!

Poor Lord Anselm! The dashing bachelor was forever plagued with dying relatives leaving their female children to his care. Indeed, he had squired so many a silly miss from schoolroom to marriage mart that he had sworn off women altogether.

The current ward was far and away the worst. Cheeky as only a French girl could be, Yvonne de la Falaise had surely sent her papa to an early grave with her melodramatics and mischief. Thank goodness for her governess, Patricia Cottingham, who was so calm and competent.

But all was not as it seemed, or so Anselm learned and very nearly too late.

The readers impression of the male was awful

I love the story and the reader did well with the female voices but much was lost when she spoke in the male voice. She made me think of the main male character as a crusty old man when the discription of him was quite the opposite. So it was hard to like the hero of the story. This is one I wish I had read instead of listen to.

fun action

our heroine is thrown into the ocean. a wicked governess. Somewhat different. All of Beaton's books end with marriage and all living happily ever after. I like happy endings.

Worst narrator I've ever heard

The story is light and fluffy, like all M.C. Beating romances. But I could barely make it to the finish because the narrator was so wooden.

I hate to give out bad reviews!

This narrator is a new favorite of mine, that being said... Some books I read myself, and some I listen, and if the narration is not enjoyable, and the author, or description is intriguing, I will get the book, and read it on my own. I, quite reluctantly, continued to listen. I had a difficult time deciding wether the narration was bringing it down, or the story. I have come to the conclusion that neither the story nor the narrator could possibly improve one, or the other.

M.C. BEATON FOR PRESIDENT!

M.C. BEATON FOR PRESIDENT, or queen, or any high office.

She has mastered the art of story-telling, crafting unique characters and plots. I like the relatively short length of her work -- sometimes the misunderstandings and lousy communication between the H and h create too much tension, and I want to skip those parts. Knowing the happy ending is only a few chapters away, I can manage the stress.

Believable plots? How would I know? I live in a 21st century riven with strife and brutality. I am more than willing to suspend disbelief for few hours in order to reach the joy of a very tidy happy ending. The idealism, optimism and ultimate justice found in good romance books is a very good reason to read them. The overwhelming popularity of the genre hints at the fact that there are lots of us who cherish these values.
