Publisher's Summary

She wants to forget she ever knew him; he just wants her.

Mabel Sheffield is too tall, or so she believes. It's one of the reasons she has given up on finding a husband and instead, embraces her role as a spinster, dedicating her days to managing her grandmother's estate and her seven-year-old sister. But when Liam MacKenzie shows up at her house to stay for the summer, she's unsure if she can keep her resolve. The problem: He's the other reason she's a spinster.

Book two in the Ladies of Devon series, The Lady of Larkspur Vale is a childhood friends-to-lovers and second chance romance story. It is a clean regency romance that continues telling the story of the four women who make up a literary society in Devon and form a lasting friendship.

Clean, fun Regency

I loved this book! I liked that the main character wasn’t PERFECT- I could totally relate to her since I’m tall as well. The grandmother was hilarious I loved everything about her. This book was well written and had a happy ending. I can’t wait till the next book so I can hear what happens to the rest of the characters!
The narrator was awesome! She did a great job on the male voices and she even did well with the little sister. She has a soothing voice and a great accent. I really enjoyed listening to this book.

Could do without Pippa’s voice

It’s a slow story, with a few modern phrases. Flat scenes can take a long time to play out. Narration itself is very good, except for the unbelievably squeaky Pippa, who gets too much screen time. The heroine’s internal dialogue about how Mac rejected her in the past and her feelings around that are overdone with annoying repetition. The book is average for the genre; so therefore, it’s okay. I enjoyed the first book in the series more than this one, and I will continue on with the series, because of the first one. Plus, I appreciate clean romances.

Plot lacking. Character interactions too

The first book was engaging with mystery and romance. This book lacked both mystery and the catchy interactions between the romantic leads as well as side characters. Just odd that this book fell so flatly after the first.

Irritating child voice

For the most part, it is a good story, and I do like the narrator's storytelling voice, as well as character voices. My one problem...it is like nails on a chalkboard when she does the voice of the little sister. Nowhere in the story does it state that the child has a lisp, but the narrator makes it sound as though she does. Every time the kid (Pippa) says anything with an "s", it sounds like a "th". "Sir", sounds like "thir", "lessons" sounds like "lethons", and so on, with a high pitched whining voice. The kid is supposed to be seven years old, but the narrator makes her sound like she is still one or two, and learning how to pronounce things. Drives me crazy. A seven year old child is a First Grader. Old enough and intelligent enough to pronunciate things just fine and hold a decent conversation without a whiney voice.

Lovely Story

I thoroughly enjoyed the story of Mabel and Mac; However there were times that Mabel’s inability to hear what he was saying was frustrating… just as I wished he would share his full situation with her. However I do know that communication was less forthright in this era.

Ultimately, however, I love their story as well as this series. The epilogue was particularly delightful and audiobook was very well done.

Enjoyable

The book was enjoyable, clean, and interesting. Great funny, devious, sincere, and powerful characters. There was one scene where I didn't get an answer to and would have liked to have had it, however, it did not take away from the story itself. I would recommend it to others.

Tender Second Chance Regency Romance

I found the narrator’s voice very soothing. This second chance romance did not turn out how I had planned; instead it had a much richer storyline. I did develop strong opinions of the characters throughout the narration. I was surprised by some of the characters’ outcomes. I especially loved the tender, romantic epilogue.

A lovely addition to the series

This second book in the Ladies of Devon series was a very enjoyable listen! I can't wait to read the rest of the series. Throughout this book I could see hints of what may come in a future book, and it made me giddy!

The ending is extremely satisfying, even more so than I expected as the story went along.

The narrator did a wonderful job! The voice she did of a 7-year-old girl was adorable and absolutely consistent. All of her voices were recognizable without being overdone, which I very much appreciate. It was very easy to listen to her narration while doing other things, because it flowed so well.

Righting past wrongs

I’ve been wanting to read one of Kasey’s books for a long time know and just hadn’t had a chance. I was able to listen to the story on audible and I loved it. The narrator did a great job as well. The child voice wasn’t my favorite but otherwise I enjoyed it very much. This is the story of Mable and Mac. Mac once rejected Mable when Mable bore her heart to Mac. 6 years later they are reunited. Mable doesn’t trust that Mac can be anything more than a charming flirt.

Not for me

American language in a Regency novel is irritating . I couldn't finish. The narrator also over acted.

Loved It!

I am thoroughly enjoying this series 😄 This is the second book of the series so far and I am eager to read the rest of them! This is Mabel’s story, who we were introduced to briefly in the first book along with her other friends, who are also referenced in this one. We also get to read a bit more about Giulia Pepper and follow on with her story a little from the first one.
Although this could be read as a stand-alone novel, it makes more sense to have read the previous one first. Kasey Stockton has a truly enjoyable style of writing and all of her stories are clean and wholesome with feel good endings 🥰 I am happy to recommend this book to anyone who enjoys clean regency romance novels. Victoria Brazier does a superb job narrating and is very pleasing to listen to. I received a copy of this book from the author however this in no way influenced my opinion and I am under no obligation to leave a review.

GET THIS ONE!

Kasey Stockton has hit it out of the park with this one! I don't often get so involved with a book but this one had me laughing out loud and crying. I can't remember the last time I cried while reading a book. The characters are so full and engaging that I couldn't help but feel along with them. It was awesome to have the story from both main characters point of view. It gave the story so much depth to know the reasons and thoughts behind why people were doing what they were doing. The narration is amazing and adds even more depth to the story if that is even possible. I can not recommend The of Larkspur Vale enough! Five stars are not enough for this story.

beautiful story, wonderful narrator!!

The Lady of Larkspur Vale was such a beautiful story made even more wonderful by its narrator 😍

I loved so many things from this book. From characters to setting and pace, the author did a wonderful job weaving a story that certainly grips the reader and hardly ever lets go. I loved both Mabel and Mack, and my heart definitely went out to both of them due to their different circumstances and past. I loved that they had known each other through their childhoods yet, due to the last shared event, have a lot of things to work through. I loved the sense of family and community from Mabel's side of the story: her care for Gram (such a hoot) and her love for Pippa (never a dull moment with her) were evident throughout the story - needles to say about her interactions with her Father, as well as her conversations with her cousin Charles. On the other hand, Mack was the perfect hero and I definitely fell for him and his character (the perfect gentleman, caring, attentive, sweet, honorable...). I'm definitely glad the author gave us his POV. I could go on and on, but I'll just leave at this is Kasey Stockton's best series yet, and this story, despite being the second one, stands on its own (while featuring the wedding of the couple from the first book).

As for the narrator, I can't say enough good things about her performance! She took an already beautiful story and took it to the next level. Honestly, this is the first audiobook I've heard that played like a movie in my mind (and I'm talking P&P 2005 kind of movie - and that's high praise for me since that's one of my favorite movies ever). Seriously, I loved her work, and was totally blown away not only by her wide range of voices (from childlike voices like Pippa's to Gram's often crotchety one, to Mabel's sweet yet even-tempered, to Mack's swoony, deep baritone, to Charles' more light-hearted one, to Julia's always positive attitude and everything in between) but also by her accuracy while portraying different emotions: from enthusiasm to anger, to exclamations of joy and moments of wistfulness, I can't recommend her enough, and I think she very well might have spoilt me for other narrators.

Overall, a wonderful story brought to life by an equally wonderfully talented narrator, who quickly made this a favorite for me. Recommended to fans of the author, this series, and/or the Sweet Regency Romance genre. ~5 stars

Wonderful!

This book was fantastic and I had a very difficult time putting it down! I laughed out loud and thoroughly enjoyed the main characters. The narrator was fantastic and I was shocked at how many different voices she could do. I can't wait for the next book in this series! I will definitely be searching out more of Kasey Stockton's audiobooks!
