Phylida Nash is such a skilled reader who colours every character so brilliantly that it is a pleasure to listen to her.
This particular Georgette Heyer is a very funny adventure with a delightfully ditzy 'blonde', a young man learning to be bold and independent, without losing his gentle character, and a budding unexpected romance. I highly enjoyed the twists and turns of the plot and the calm saneness of the not so beautiful romantic heroine.

One of my very favorite recordings of a Heyer book! The central characters are sweet and capable, the many side characters are totally engaging, their dialog is sharp, and the situations they face become more and more knotted until all unravels completely in a delightful ending. Great fun, and Phyllida Nash is simply the best reader of Heyer books there is.

This book is so impeccably read by Phyllida Nash, that the characters come alive. Although not one of my personal favourite Georgette Heyer books; this reading brings out all of the nuances of humour, hauteur and class consciousness. A welcome addition to the GH library!

i have read all her books many times. Being able to knit and listen at the same time is great fun.

I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this book. It has it all, romance, intrigue, humour and one can imagine oneself as the heroine of the story because she is not ravishingly beautiful for a change.
Georgette Heyer is a grand story teller.
Nash reads with great charictor vioce changes. great.
