Carmen Rose reads well, but everyone sound alike, both male and females. With a talented narrator "A Good Debutant's Guide to Ruin" could have been entertaining, but even the love scenes sounded like someone reading a recipe. The narrator sure makes a difference.
Historical romance is my genre of choice, but it took me 3 tries to finish "A Good Debutant's Guide to Ruin" -- I cannot recommend it.

Not fantastic; not bad. Just an average book. The characters never grabbed me and the story was nothing special. It seems that I've read this story before by a different author(s?)
I've heard better narration from Carmen Rose. Not her best work.

I like the occasional historic romance, it's not my usual listen as the exaggerated clipped British accent find wearing. However, of the ones I've listened to Sophie Jordan's are the best, I wouldn't listen in sequence though as the format is predictable but as stand alone they are funny and light hearted, she dies touch on past traumatic experiences of the characters so these could be a some people I however enjoyed the diversity it brings to the story.
