Publisher's Summary

A false engagement. A mysterious coast. Two reluctant hearts.  

Much to her father's dismay, Miss Amelia Buxton aspires to become a spinster, just like her eccentric aunt. Growing up with parents who married for every reason but love, she has never seen a joyful marriage. When Amelia requests a summer trip to the legendary waters of Brighton, her father allows her the excursion, but with one requirement: She must return engaged, or agree to the proposal of the man of his choosing.  

Crawling with tourists, Brighton is not the town Adam Claridge once loved. When his sister Eleanor disappears without warning, Adam is desperate to bring her home. In his search, he happens upon Miss Amelia Buxton, a young tourist that proves vital in his search for Eleanor. But Amelia is conducting a search of her own-a search for a husband-and Adam has little choice but to offer a fair trade: He will play the role of Amelia's betrothed in exchange for her assistance in finding Eleanor.  

Convenient at first, Amelia and Adam's arrangement quickly plummets into disarray. Falling in love had not been part of their bargain.

Couldn't finish.

Couldn't make myself finish because of the narration and story. Story seemed so predictable and the narration was tiresome.

Hard to listen to, breathy, whistle-y performance

It was a fun and unique story line, but I feel like I suffered through the whole thing. The quiet, breathy and whistle-y performance didn’t seem to match the vivacious story or characters. When I turned the volume up so I could hear the words, it became very breathy and every “s” made a whistle sound.

good story

Didn't care for the "performance." I'm a type that prefers an audio book to simply be read, rather than performed. This isn't a screenplay and the chances that narrator will do things that annoy me and distract from the story is too great. Regarding this one in particular: generally way too breathy / dainty (common complaint), though the men's voices weren't bad and I thought the moments in the water or out of breath were well done.

Good Listen.........🙂

This book is better then the 2nd book of the series. I really don't think I like book narrated by Mary Sarah... she seems to make them seem slow!!!
