Publisher's Summary

A London officer goes undercover to expose a plot against the Crown.   

Dover, England, 1808: Officer Alexander Moore goes undercover as a gambling gentleman to expose a high-stakes plot against the king - and he's a master of disguise, for Johanna Langley believes him to be quite the rogue...until she can no longer fight against his unrelenting charm.   

All Johanna wants is to keep the family inn afloat, but when the rent and the hearth payment are due at the same time, where will she find the extra funds? If she doesn't come up with the money, there will be nowhere to go other than the workhouse - where she'll be separated from her ailing mother and 10-year-old brother.   

Alex desperately wants to help Johanna, especially when she confides in him, but his mission - finding and bringing to justice a traitor to the Crown - must come first, or they could all end up dead.

So much potential.

This story had so much potential... I felt like the story should have ended around just the boat scene.. it was at least an hour too long... had me saying is it done yet... the Hero was an inadequate hero just going through the motions... the death of all those people on the boat was not necessary and could have been prevented with a hero who had more control over the situation... he didn't solve anything and he didn't save the day

Not bad

The story was okay but I think maybe I would have liked it better with a different narrator.

Awesome book and narrator!

WOW! I am so impressed with this audiobook. I’ve listened to many very good books and this one hits all the marks for me! The author explains in such detail to help you ‘feel’ what’s going on around the characters and the emotions they are feeling. There was plenty of suspense, action, emotion... And also what stands out to me now that I’ve finished it is that it retains all of this throughout the book until the very end. Many good audiobooks are detailed most of the way through but then finish with an ending that ties up too quickly and leaves me wishing it had drawn out a little more . Not this one. And the narrator did an awesome job with the many different characters. I’m so impressed and will look for more books by Michelle Griep.

Not bad

Decent story with some mystery, plot twists, and gentle romance. There was a little over explaining that occasionally slowed things down. I found the heroine a little flat in personality and irritating at times, though she does soften. And I was more drawn to Alex than I was to her. It's hard to find clean romances, so I definitely appreciated that aspect.

Twists & Turns Keep You Guessing

There are so many twists and turns, especially in the last half of the book, I'm left a bit speechless. Michelle Griep's books never disappoint! The set up did take some time in the beginning but it was very much worth it. There were times I felt so bad for Johanna, she had taken on all the responsibilities of running the in and taking care of her mother and her scamp of a younger brother. When her heart is broken, Mam gave her the best words of wisdom "..broken things are always the beginning of better things..." I loved all the twists and turns! It was hard to figure out who the bad guy was. Mr. Nutbrown is a quirky character like none other. Honestly, I did not care for the narration on this book, though I have enjoyed other stories narrated by Alison Larkin. I found that upping the playback speed improved it.

Enjoyable and Interesting!

A little religious for my personal taste, BUT true to the characters and the time period and the overall story was interesting. I loved Nitsy and Mr. Nutbrown! They gave me a few chuckles while listening.

Enjoyable If

If you enjoy a menagerie of strange characters you’ll love this book. Alex, Johanna, her little brother, and her mother are excellent characters. The others blur in and out of the different paths the novel takes. The ending is well done. There are a too many characters. Not the best performance of the men but still a good listen.

can't get past the narration

I tried repeatedly to stay interested in the book. but I can't get past the nursery rhyme type of narration.. sadly she reminds me of Mother Goose..
