Nice second book in the series

This is a very sweet romance that flows nicely. Totally clean, no smexy stuff going on here.

I generally liked the story but found Stephen to be arrogant most of the time. Had I been Elizabeth, I might have slapped him a time of two. Fortunately things work out nicely in the end.

Really great cast and I expect to see some of the supporting characters as leads in other books in the series.

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Pearl Hewitt, who does a great job. She has a really lovely voice that makes the read more enjoyable. Her pace is swift and really moves along keeping the pace steady. Her voices were fabulous and really consistent. I will definitely look for more of her work.

Disclosure - I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts, opinions and ratings are my own.

Love this book!

What did you love best about The Wagered Bride?

I loved how the narrator did the different voices for the different characters. I also love the author and how she tells a story.

What did you like best about this story?

The characters and their different personalities and how they associate with each other.

Have you listened to any of Pearl Hewitt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. It is better that the last one I heard, which was the first book in this series. I think I liked her even better this time because I was used to her voice and how she would change it for the different characters.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

High-stakes for the brave of heart.

Any additional comments?

I have loved every book by this author! She is an amazing story teller, and the narrator makes this book very enjoyable.

Enjoyable

The narrator is a genius. Best performance I ever heard. Well done ! Story was amusing although not enough for five stars.
