What would have made Deadly Scandal better?
So I very rarely write reviews but after wading through this book I just had to comment. I wanted to like this lead character but there is nothing admirable about her. She is entirely clueless about the world around her. Her decision making would have ended her life many times over throughout the book. And the author relies entirely on the dashing man to save her.
Also the author's use of internal monologues is tedious. Just lazy story telling. As Chekhov said "Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass"
Has Deadly Scandal turned you off from other books in this genre?
No there are wonderful, resourceful, crafty, funny, intelligent, savvy women heroines in this between the wars era.
What aspect of Henrietta Meire’s performance would you have changed?
Ms. Meire was a fine voice actor.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

The characters are strong. The history is accurate The plot has unpredictable twists and turns and there is a little romance. I have already started the next book in the series

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
I found the character in this book so naive and stupid it was beyond belief.
The narratives male voices need working on but otherwise she performed well.
I also think that if this book was proof read it should be done by an English person, not American, we do not travel by 'blocks' and certainly we did not in the pre war days, just one of the fopars made.
Would you ever listen to anything by Kate Parker again?
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
Narrator was good, just needs to work on male voices a bit more, but other wise very well done
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Deadly Scandal?
All of them
Any additional comments?
Americans writing about period English people need to do more home work
