Light but entertaining.

This book is light but good listening for a raining afternoon.
Unfortunately the reader's rendition of the male voices sounded female which made any and all of the reading of the interaction between male and female hard to follow.

Darn good story botched by narrator!

This book is the proof that not everybody can be a narrator.
Really glad I've read the book in prints in 2011 because pity the pour listener who didn't.
You needed to know who was talking cause they all sounded the same, the male voices were even higher than the females.

Enjoyed this one, too

I really like the different story line that this series takes. There's not only a murder mystery but also a treasure hunt mystery, if you will. It was a fun read.

In the Legacy Trilogy, my favorite

In the Legacy series, I like the Nightingale story more than I actually did the first story. The hero and heroine as characters are robustly written as are some of the other supporting characters. The audio reader did a very good job but for the first time in an audible download there was some recording degregation. I heard background noise that was distracting but, the story and the reading were entertaining. So 5 stars for a regency romance and an audio performance, 1 star for the production team and sound editor.

Entertaining

I love her stories. However, I could have lived without the treasure hunting. Yet, it is only a story, and performed it's purpose of entertaining me well.

The narrator's voice is easy to listen to. If you like her books, you will like this one.

Catherine Coulter is great

I have never read a Coulter book that I didnt love and this one is just as amazing as the rest. It is amazing how she can write books in the past and present and make them all so very interesting and make you anxious for the next book. This is a lady that has one of the greatest imaginations in the field of romance and suspense she can intertwine both and make history interesting. I am always ready for her next book. I read or listen to them and cant wait for the book to finally end but then find I am dissapointed the book is over this is why I love her books cause when you finish one there is usually a sequal waiting for me to continue with the story. Thanks Catherine for sharing your gift with us. I listen to the books on my 1 hour drive to and from work it is an hour each way and this makes my trip go so quickly that I dont realize how long it takes me to get to work or home from work. And I never have to worry about falling asleep, The story always has me interested enough to stay awake and almost regret when I arrive at my destination, There is not a better way to make a long trip seem short. Thanks to Audible for making these audio books available at the great prices. I am in sales and often tell people that I speak to about the great deals that audible has on audiobooks. I have sent lots of business people to audible especially when they tell me that they travel a lot. Once again thanks to Catherine and Audible for making my trips to and from work so enjoyable. You are great both of you.

Horrible narrator

I don't know what possessed the editor to chose this particular narrator but she is God awful. Why is an American speaking with an American accent picked to narrate a story set in Regency England? Her minimal attempts at an English accent are cringe worthy. Her reading is monotonous with strange pacing. It's hard to tell one character from another. Male and female voices sound the same. I am so distracted by her narration that I can't really concentrate on the story. Anne Flosnik narrates many of Catherine Coulter's books. Although she is not one of my top favorites, she is infinitely more preferable than Monica Buckley.

There’s also background voices bleeding through so the recording studio was subpar.

Good storyline

I enjoyed the storyline but not the recording. There is a great deal of background noise and the reading is difficult to follow sometimes due to the same voice used for the persons. It becomes difficult to distinguish.
