Publisher's Summary

Forced by bankruptcy and scandal into exile in France, Lord Waverly expects never to return to his homeland until, staggering home from a gaming hell in the wee hours of the morning, he encounters a young novice escaping from a convent. When she asks him to take her to England, promising him that her English grandfather will reward him handsomely for her safe conveyance, Waverly reluctantly agrees.

Alas, Waverly soon realizes the enormity of his task. When he delivers the irrepressible Lisette to her grandfather's home only to discover that the old man is dead, Waverly is left with no alternative but to offer her the protection of his name. And when he is unexpectedly reunited with the woman whose marriage precipitated his flight to France, Waverly begins to discover that his marriage of convenience is likely to prove very inconvenient indeed....

Lord Waverly redeemed

I was afraid I wouldn't like this last installment in the Weaver trilogy. (The detestable Lord Waverly as the hero? My beloved Brundys facing marital troubles? GASP!) But to my relief, I enjoyed it immensely.

The plot hinges on a big (make that MASSIVE) misunderstanding between Sir Ethan and Lady Helen. Maddeningly vague conversations make each party believe they're discussing something entirely different. (Yes, I wanted to tear my hair out at a few of them!)

The author used this trope to weave her two storylines together and to subtly bring each character to a realization of what they truly loved and valued.

She even redeemed Lord Waverly! He slowly grew into the honor and compassion he never knew he had.

Another Good One

"I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request, via Audiobook Boom, and have voluntarily left this review." This is the third book in the Weaver trilogy and it to me was in line with the others. They are all great stories and the humor included just made the story for me. The Weavers and Lord Waverly meet again after four years. This time Lord Waverly finds his bride. The adventures they get into are very funny. I love Helen and her weaver, They have five children and in the end, they celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary and during this celebration the son who is most like the dad announces after one glance that he will be marrying Lord Waverly's daughter. Good conclusion to the older generation's story and perhaps a start to the younger generations story.

Humorous and sweet

Lord Waverley is my favorite character in this book, he goes through a lot of growth during the book and it's very enjoyable to experience.

Lisette I alternated between liking and not liking. At times her naivete was charming and at others it seemed unbelievable and more like stupidity. Her time in the convent seemed overplayed it was like she had no exposure to life at all.

The romance between them was slow to develop and seemed more honest and believable than what I've read in most regency novels.

It's well written and links nicely to the other books in the series.

The character voices are well done and the delivery was smooth and well phrased.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Fun little read :)

I wasn't sure what to expect when I read that Lord Waverly--a villain in my eyes would be the hero I would have to wish a HEA. Paired with a young, French nun? Pish-posh! No way Jose!

Lord Waverly, who is in self appointed exhile in France is still as drawl, arrogant, and as infuriating as ever. But there's something different about him...Could it be a wee soft spot is forming despite his best efforts? The character development that Sheri weaves (no pun intended) from bad guy to good guy was similar to Helen's in The Weaver Takes a Wife. It was slow, believable and made you root for a person who was previously really unlikable.

Lissett, our French nun who is the total opposite of Waverly. Open, unassuming, sweet and rather innocent. Her backstory is unfortunately typical for women during this time period. She had a naivety about her that was at times annoying yet enduring. She was eager to please, eager to catch the eye (and love) of a man who has sworn that their marriage will be one of convenience. Yet she is determined to have more.

Ethan and Helen are prevalent in this story as well, a fact that made me smile--for the most part. We get an update on their little family. Both sets of couples have issues that are intertwined within the plot so I dare not go any further but suffice to say, I was ready to pull my hair out at times! However, all in all, I really enjoyed this book. I enjoyed it more than Honeymoon in Brighton.

Narration was great. Really enjoyable.

4 stars!

Lord Waverly, the Hero...!?!

French Leave is another great installment in the Weaver series.
Lord Waverly rescues (!?!) a novice running away from the convent and the two embark on an epic journey full of mishaps and misunderstandings.
We also get to visit with Helen and Ethan Brundy who is having a whopper of an understanding of their own that almost leads their relationship into disaster.
It was nice to see Lord Waverly develop some redeeming qualities and has now become much less of a cad.
I received a copy of this audiobook at my request and this is my honest unbiased review.

Loved it!!!!

Any additional comments?

We meet other characters from the weaver takes a wife, but you don't have to read the other books since you are told what happens in part of it due to Lord Waverly action four years ago.
I found the book to be really funny and it reminded me of Georgette Heyer's books.
I did find Lord Waverly to be immature at times and I wanted to strangle him in certain areas of the book. However, I really like the main female character Lisette. The author shows us her naivety, her determination and quick thinking.

I would highly recommend this to all since it is a clean read.

I have not listened to this narrator before and It took me a while to get used to his voice but as the story progressed I realised he suited the book and I wouldn't mind listening to his other works.
