Would you listen to The Ashford Affair again? Why?
Yes. I really enjoyed this book. It was fun, romantic, sweet, and just plain lovely.
Any additional comments?
The narrator, who did have a great accent, and did lovely voices, kept whispering and I couldn't hear a lot of the book--having to rewind while I was in the car was annoying, and changing the volume up and down was really irritating. I couldn't decide if it was an editing problem or if it was the reading style. The volume of these books needs to stay at the same level throughout because we can't be distracted while we are driving! I ended up having to use my headphones, which is not ideal when in the car because I can't hear what else is going on (plus, on a two hour commute, having those things in my ears for that long is uncomfortable!)--and even then it didn't always work.
After Lauren Willig's previous, VERY disappointing book "Two L," I was SO HAPPY when "The Ashford Affair" proved to me, once again, that she's not just a flash in the pan.

I started out by giving this book a 5 star rating. I loved reading it. It was interesting, gripping, and the characters were intriguing - for the most part. I couldn't put the book down.
That being said, I deducted a star (it would have been half a star if that was available) because I found the ending lacking something. Nothing major, just a little disappointment that the strength of the story seemed to fade.
The premise was wonderful; the writing was superb. Nicola Barber did another great job with the narration except that she sometimes gave Clemmie too much of a baby voice. That may have been part of my disappointment in the ending of the book because it seems Clemmie's voice got worse then.
I liked this book a lot
