Publisher's Summary

His feelings toward her were warm. She turned their conversation over and over in her mind, reading into every casual answer a double meaning, hints of a growing passion that were held in check.

From the moment young Annabelle met her sister Minerva's intended, Lord Sylvester, she developed a secret passion for him that obsessed her. Now she was determined to take him away from Minerva, no matter what. But she hadn't reckoned on Sylvester's best friend, Peter, who fell in love with Annabelle and decided to tame her.

Annabelle is tedious.

The main character is even more tedious and annoying than her sister was in the beginning of the first book.

Too slow and not enough voice differentiation...

The story is too detailed and slow for a regency love story. Also, the narrator can't differentiate the voices enough not to be irritating. Maybe worth the credit, but not as good as the first book in the series.

Not as good as the first book in the series

Book 2 of the The Six Sisters series was a disappointment to me. I really enjoyed book one, Minerva. Book 2 showcases the daughter, Annabelle who is the town beauty. Annabelle is well aware of how pretty she is. She is also incredibly childish, nasty, vengeful and spiteful. She lies and plays games. A real catty character you would not want near you in real life. I did not care what happened to her.

Worth the listen

Like I said with book 1, the girls in this series is as naive and gullible as you can get. I am still up in smoke on whether to love them or barely like them. I believe back in this century, some women were too sheltered. Besides being young, Annabel was contrite and vain. It was all about her and what she wanted and I believe that is the idea because as much as you want to put it down, you also want to keep listening so that you know what happens in the end. Onward to book 3 for me. The narrator I have not mentioned because I am barely tolerating her and I have no choice as she is the narrator for all the books in the series.

Nice romance

If you have read M.C.Beaton before you now what to expect but I like to listen to books like this just for something nice whit a warranty happy ending. In the second book of this series we get to see Annabelle grow from a spoiled jealous child to a sweet caring woman. love the Armitage sisters.

I've never disliked a heroine more!

I couldn't even finish- Annabelle has no redeeming qualities. I get the whole "taming of the shrew" parallel, but there has to be something north redeeming to make it work. She's a total sociopath. The narration also grated on my nerves- several mispronounced words and awkwardly timed pauses that pulled me out of the story. Give this one a pass.

Wonderful Love Story

Enjoyed the continuation of this series of sisters falling in love, growing up and family relationships. The narrator was particularly enjoyable. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

Good story, but performance not so much

The person performing the reading would put a lot of emphasis in places it didn't belong. The feelings emitted didn't match the conversation.
