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.

Freedom Always!

This series is about a fictional country fighting for it's independence. This is the third book in the series.
The main theme throughout the series is about Freedom.
There is a mention of domestic abuse in this one.

Reminds me of our US revolutionary war.

Narration is OK to listen to.

I enjoyed the whole series.

A rude awakening

This book was provided free of charge in exchange for a review.

This third book in this series continues the struggles of good vs. evil. The main character finds not all is as expected and continues through her efforts to right the wrongs and stay alive.

This is a fun read and the narration is great.

Seafaring hero gets the girl!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Kashner's robotic performance was painful, made it very difficult to get through and distracted me from the actual storyline.

Do you think The Fox of Cordovia needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Nope! Story here is much the same as the previous two, just different characters. All storylines were really tied up in the first book.

Any additional comments?

The series of 3 books is a collection of sweet, clean romances appropriate for all ages. Would be great for listening while commuting or on the beach, when you just don't want to get to in-depth. ***This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.***
