Publisher's Summary

Earning the nickname Lady Agony was no minor achievement for Lady Agatha Bolingbroke. It required a great deal of effort to make herself so disagreeable, but she did it for a good cause: The fewer invitations she received, the more time she had to paint. Her mother, refusing to accept an unpopular daughter - or, worse, a talented one - insists on dragging her to every event of the season. To thwart her parents and to vent her frustration, Agatha creates a wicked alter ego: a caricaturist whose mocking illustrations take ruthless aim at the ridiculousness of the ton. Her most recent target is Viscount Addleson, whom she dubs Viscount Addlewit for his handsome but empty head.  

Then one of Agatha's drawings goes too far, and a villain threatens to reveal her true identity if she doesn't comply with his demands. Now she has an impossible choice - ruin herself or an innocent young lady. And to her utter amazement, the only person who can help her is Lord Addleson, whose handsome head, upon closer inspection, isn't empty at all, and whose eyes are full of mischief.  

Suddenly, she finds it very difficult to be disagreeable to him.

Better than the previous books in the series

I liked this book the most out of the four I’ve listened to so far. Mainly it’s due to the fact that the narrator didn’t make the main character sound like the mousy airhead type. Overall, a good listen.

Tedious

This is okay, but not great. The story is a little interesting and you get some understanding of how difficult it may have been for a talented woman to reach her potential during the regency era, but not new territory.
Stories about artists are a little difficult to associate, as the medium is visual and not easy to explain in words, as real art has to be seen and interpreted. Trying to envision what the hero sees in the heroine's art work is difficult.
I still can't understand how they came together and why, but they do work things out and the characters from the first 2 novels in the series show up to continue their stories.
It's just okay, so I won't be moving to the 4th book in the series.

Too Wordy

I’m not enjoying this novel at all... I’m at chapter 12 and have just decided to call it a day. It’s too wordy - not too descriptive - but just goes off on a tangent at just the time when the plot should be progressed with more pace. It makes listening to it very tedious. If it were a written book, I imagine that I would skip ahead by rapidly turning the pages.

As it is, the story isn’t engrossing enough to encourage me to press on. I may come back to it later, but I doubt it!

The narrator is quite good and doesn’t spoil the tale. Unfortunately it’s the story that does that.
