Publisher's Summary

Charlotte Arkendale was quite sure she knew all there was to know about men. After all, she'd made a highly lucrative career out of steering marriage-minded women away from untrustworthy members of the opposite sex. But nothing in Charlotte's considerable experience had prepared her for the arresting stranger who appeared on her doorstep to apply for the position of her new man-of-affairs.He claimed to be a respectable gentleman - discreet, unassuming, ordinary to the point of being dull. Yet something about the set of Mr. St. Ives's broad shoulders and the unrelenting determination that smoldered in the depths of his amber eyes warned Charlotte to be wary. For the strong-minded beauty was already embroiled in a wealth of danger.Two months earlier, Miss Drusilla Heskett had become on of Charlotte's clients. Now the woman was dead, murdered in her own home, and Charlotte feared that the killer may have been one of the suitors she herself had advised Miss Heskett to reject. Still, with the right man by her side, Charlotte was certain she could uncover the truth and bring Drusilla's killer to justice. But was the enigmatic St. Ives Mr. Right...or Mr. Wrong?

Simple romance with dated reading style

There was enough interest in the characters and plot to keep me listening, but the narration seemed old-fashioned especially at the amorous parts...loud music would kick in and make it difficult to hear! If this was my first taste of an audio book I would have to say I wouldn't be too impressed. Simple, feel good book with the baddies truly getting their come-uppance.

Any additional comments?

The narrator did a decent job but at certain times loud music, including trumpets, invaded the scene which left it difficult to hear the narration.

The story was not that great - just so-so but maybe the unabridged version would have been better. Except I don't think I could have tolerated the trumpets in a long version.
