The best in the series yet

I loved this book so much ! Lucinda Riley did amazing job and and relatively new narrator Jessica Preddy was divine I loved her ! I loved this book and as well as the other too but I love England and the time period and it was so well written I didn't want it to end . It was different than the other too with out giving spoiler alerts it was just exquisite. Really Lucinda well done Bravo from across the pond . Someday I will visit all those lovely places . And Jessica I hope to hear your voice on some lovely books your voice was spot on and perfect .

So disappointing! :(

Would you try another book from Lucinda Riley and/or Jessica Preddy?

I am a huge fan of Lucinda Riley, this however was not her best in my humble opinion. I understand that Star is subdued and quiet but I found her pretty boring. Everyone seems to go out of their way to enthusiastically support her and be there for her, but I'm not sure why. I didn't find her very appealing and it was therefore hard to stay interested in her story.

The first two in this series were so fun to follow and explore with the characters. With Star I just felt like she needs to hear her own voice and be with herself. Since she's fallen in love with Mouse (I cannot get used to calling a grown man "Mouse") she will just end up falling into the same co-dependant weirdness with him as she had with her sister. So I wasn't even that happy for her when things began to solidify with him.


What didn’t you like about Jessica Preddy’s performance?

The narrator didn't have a male voice so I got confused often as to who was talking. There wasn't enough definition between accents and voices. Beyond that, Star and she sister Cici seemed to have a part French part German accent. I'm not sure if this was intentional or not but I found it peculiar.
