I loved the first book in this three book series. The characters were well developed and the sense of mystery strong--with an excellent historic setting. The second book moved the characters to London and became much more of a study of manners in society. There was still a mystery quality to the book--but it was less engaging. Now this third installment is a total game changer. The mystery recedes and the romance completely takes over. I personally will walk a mile out of my way to avoid a romance novel.
To me, the story was slow with serious gaps in the plot that at times made me think I had dozed off and missed a section. I would go back several chapters and listen again only to find that huge sections of the story had been just skipped over. I also found an unevenness in the plot with errors or fact changes that are never addressed or explained. Plus the story contains so much arguing and fighting between the characters that it verges on tedious.
Worse than anything, I found my mind wandering while I listened. I would suddenly find myself making a grocery list or planning the next days activities. I was just bored by it all and simply not engaged with this weak installment in the series. Too much rewinding and too little mystery for me. Proceed only if you enjoy romance novels with a hint of mystery on the side.

What a great cozy! It's easy to find yourself caught up in the story. I find myself checking to see if the 4th book in the series is out yet.
