Clean Historical Romance

This is the third book in the Cordovia series, set a few years after the rebels overthrow the king. The citizens of Cordovia are working to set up a system of government. In the city of Laketown, a mayoral race is on. Caroline, an educated nurse who worked with the rebellion, is engaged to one of the candidates. When she overhears her fiance plotting to tamper with the election, she calls on the Fox, the hero of Laketown, for help.

This was a sweet clean read with plenty of intrigue and excitement to keep things interesting. It can be read as a standalone but is best enjoyed after reading books one and two. I really liked both Caroline and Jesse. Caroline is a strong feisty woman and not afraid to defend herself. I loved their various disguises and how much fun they had together!

The narration was great, the narrator performed accents and voices and immersed me in the story. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Very Exciting Story!

The Fox of Cordovia is book 3 of The Rebel Series. It is set in an area called Laketown and follows its two main characters, Caroline and Jesse (AKA The Fox), in a whirlwind of adventure and romance. Caroline is a nurse who helped her father, a doctor, aid the rebels during the rebellion (from book 1). She is now engaged to William, a well-known attorney who is running to be the town’s next mayor. One day, while visiting William, she accidentally hears a conversation which turns her world upside down. Upon realizing what just happened and in fear for her safety, Caroline runs and hides. Jesse, unbeknownst to Caroline, was hired by her father to follow and protect her. He soon rushes to her aid. The story follows them as their relationship progresses, feelings develop, and as Caroline learns Jesse’s true identity. It is a beautiful love story, full of excitement, with plenty of surprises along the way. Overall, it is a great book for anyone who enjoys a little adventure!

What a conclusion to the trilogy!

What an adventure this one is! I started this and couldn't stop listening. First, I needed to find out what a Fox was in history! Linda Weaver Clarke masterfully weaves together the story of Caroline and Jessie. Caroline is set to marry the man who will be the new mayor in Laketown. When she overhears a compromising situation, her safety comes into question, and her father gets her protection. Who better to take care of her than the Fox of Cordovia? I loved the listening to this story. It's written with a lot of imagery, humor and just all around fun. From the fantastic costuming to the pirate ship, we enjoy a story of deceit and love. Like the other two in the series, Caroline is strong, female lead and shows how even though women are supposed to be quiet during this time in history, she is quite capable and full of spunk. Jessie is the perfect compliment to her, and is just so easy to fall for. Their adventure together and what they find on their way will knock your socks off. It's a great ending to this trilogy!

Carolyn Kashner concludes her narration with her many voices and great emotions. She has a way of giving the story lots of energy and that feeling of adventure. I think she gives wonderful performance.

A Lovely Ending to a Sweet Series

The Fox of Cordovia is the third and final book of the Rebel series. The tension from determining how Cordovia will be governed and who will be in control since the upheaval in the first book, is still present in this book.

I think what I love the most about this author's writing is that she has either included or based her stories off of a REAL historical figure or event without the dryness of a history lesson. I enjoy the author's incorporation of many important values and morals demonstrated in various character's actions throughout this book as well as her other books. I think that these books are based on factual persons or events adds to the inspiration one can gain from listening to these books. Every book in the series left me feeling encouraged and uplifted, which I appreciate immensely.

Although Jesse and Caroline's romance was somewhat anticipated, I can't help but love their story anyways. I am a hopeless romantic and I love a happily ever after. The author does a great job, as usual, developing these charming characters. The series is also wrapped up nicely in this final installment of the Rebel series.

This narrator did a great job in all three books of this series. I think she was a perfect fit for the series and did a fabulous job bringing all of the characters to life.

I received a review copy at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Adventure!

The Fox of Cordovia is book 3 of the Rebel Series by Linda Weaver Clarke, narrated by Carolyn Kashner. Each book contains its own interesting plot and so could serve as a stand-alone book, as well. As with the other books, it is also a historical fiction of a clean and enjoyable nature. There is nothing to worry about if a younger reader would want to read the book.

It contains adventure, romance, and pirates! If this is the type of book that intriques you, you will love it.

Carolyn Kashner is a talented narrater with a very expressive style that is fun and easy to listen to making the Audible version very enjoyable.

I think you will enjoy reading this one!

I received an Audible version of this book. All thoughts are my own.

Suitable for younger listeners

I loved this book. It is full of adventure, drama, intrigue and suspense. We've got kidnapping plots, pirate ships, daring rescues and romance.
The author weaves an exciting tale and a sweet romance together in a way that will appeal to all readers and is suitable from age twelve up.

I realised when I started this book that I hadn't read the second in the series however, each book contains its own story and romance without any cliffhangers and they can be enjoyed as stand alone novels.

I voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy.

Good

Good Narration brings out a story of another era, of love and who to trust. Caroline overhears a conspiracy and wants to do something to stop. A good series of adventure and love to enjoy, of men fighting for freedom. With good narration added to the story. Given audio for my voluntary review

Sorta boring, needs improvement

It was sorta boring and mainly cause she uses too many adverbs, and uses to much passive voice, but the bases of the story isn’t terrible she just needs some practice on better writing, but there’s a part that sounded a lot like the Story of The Boy and the King, in this particular book where Jessie refused to bow down to the king because he will only bow down to God and that is very much a story that’s already been told, felt like she copied that and she didn’t make it original enough, the rest was boring, I think she needs to get more original ideas and write them down in a better way. Sad when I know that if I edited it I could improve it a lot, I don’t like cringing while I am trying to listen to a story and wanting to fix is it takes away from the experience of the story, maybe if it was improved I wouldn’t find it as boring. It’s not the fault of the reader, but the writer. Sad really. Her performance was good, but it just isn’t enough to make up for the books shortcomings.

Need a fox?

Cordovia is now enjoying their new freedom!

Benjamin Davies hires Jesse Conover to watch over his spunky yet brave daughter Caroline because he has a bad feeling about her fiancé. One day, after overhearing something Jesse notices Caroline run frantically away from her fiancés house.

Caroline and Jesse go on a mission of disguise to figure things out.

This story contains a lot of adventure and a sweet romance. I think it speaks more of the times than the other two books in this series,

As I was reading this series I kept wondering how the author came up with this storyline. So I just want to say thank you to Linda Weaver Clarke for the authors notes.
