I tried twice!
I could not listen as the narrator’s voice did not match the characters and it was so distracting. I’ve heard this narrator read other books. She is just so-so. This was quite a disappointment.
Patterson DID NOT disappoint!
I saw this book at a store. Read the back & as with most books, I wrote down the title to see if I could find it on Audible. I was happy to find it. I did hesitate to purchase it due to a review I saw. So, so glad I followed my own instinct! Kept me hooked from the beginning. And, a total bonus! Therese Plummer did the narration.
ABSOLUTELY WONDERFULLY AMAZING
So, you know that you really are enjoying a book when you find yourself the object of the weirdo stare! I laughed out loud so many times while listening, that I don't even know how many times I received the weirdo stare. I would hope the authors would continue on their skewed events of history with other books like this. Katherine Kellgren was AMAZING!

Took me in right away!
Great story. Loved the fact that it timing of the story was set right after WW I. Historical yet modern Cinderella story.
It would have been just perfect if there had been a different narrator. Some of the character voices were just obnoxious.
Is there an editor for audiobooks?
The story is entertaining and I will finish the series. That being said, the narrator WOW!! I am not sure if her native tongue is English. There are so many mispronounced words that every time I turn the book on I can make a list of at least four words that are mangled. Again, I said at least four words. It is extremely distracting. As well as a disservice to the author.
KHRISTINE HVAM OR EILEEN STEVENS PLEASE
THE STORY WAS PRETTY GOOD, HOWEVER THE NARRATOR LEFT MUCH TO BE DESIRED. I HAD TO LISTEN EXTREMELY CLOSELY TO FOLLOW WHO WAS SUPPOSED TO BE SPEAKING AT THE TIME.
I am glad that I stuck with it!
Slow to start, but once it got going it was very good. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
WAY TO PUSH SEX DOWN OUR CHILDREN'S THROATS!
The narrators did a wonderful job, thus the 5 stars for the performance. I don't know about all parents but this parent thought this book was way over the top on the sexual scenarios and teen angst about sexual situations. The book could have been good. If you are a parent that wants what is best for your child, this is not the book for your child to listen to.

I expected something different.
I would not refer this book to a friend. The reader was good, the book was fairly trashy.
