At long last, Francesa’s story. For those of you that have followed the Bridgertons, you won’t be disappointed. 💓

Loved it!

If you like this genre, you cannot go wrong with the combination of Mary Balogh and the amazing Rosalyn Landor. I have listened to all of this series (more than once) and have preordered the next one.

Somewhat disappointing

After reading all the Cynster stories I was very eager to read about Mr Montague. I actually can’t believe this was written by the same author. The mystery part of the story was good however there was quite a lot of rather ‘corny’ and unnecessary dialogue. I also struggle with this narrator. Simon Prebble’s characterisation of Barnaby etc in the first book set a precedence which was a difficult act to follow. Because of this I probably won’t listen to the remainder of the series 😟.

Disappointing and a bit silly

Not much else to say really. Narration by Zimmerman is OK but the heroin just a bit ridiculous.

Enjoyed the story

I enjoyed this story but struggled with the narrator. This will deter me from listening to the others in the series, unfortunately.

Looking forward to next book

This was my first experience with a Vivienne Lorret book. I was looking for a ‘witty regency romance’ and was not disappointed. I’m looking forward to hearing more of her stories when they are available.

Brilliant!

Enjoyed this book thoroughly. It has a bit of everything. Excellent combination of writer and narrator. I can’t wait for the rest of the series.

The end of a fantastic series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, if it was their style.

What three words best describe Steven Crossley’s performance?

I struggle a bit with this narrator but the stories are so good I worked my way past the few things that annoy me.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, although 11 hours would be a stretch in a normal day.

Any additional comments?

This whole series was just fabulous. Such a good author of this type of book.

Nice story

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Only with a warning regarding the narrator

What didn’t you like about Susan Duerden’s performance?

Susan has quite a good reading voice. Her young female characters are OK however her older females tend to be screechy. Her male characters are awful and are somewhat exaggerated, almost aggressive and overdone. I’m not sure if I grew used to her or if perhaps she softened somewhat as the story rolled on. I wonder if she would be better to not try so hard.
I hate to criticise as I appreciate how difficult it must be to do this. 😜

Did Along Came a Duke inspire you to do anything?

I’m reluctant to listen to the remaining books in the series because of the narrator.

Very funny...

This is my second time around on this book. I love the series and I found this book even funnier than the first. Can't wait to 'reread' the other books again. It's a pity that not all of the series is available on audio yet. I look forward to that day.
