I love everything about this book. The story line is fabulous, the characters are fresh and very appealing. I listened to the whole thing in one sitting and I could turn around and listen to it again.
Eva Kaminsky's narration is terrific. I especially love her accent for Pauline, our heroine. Pauline is a country lass, who though lacking much formal education, is witty and quick and catches the hero's attention from first glance. Griff, the Duke of Halford has been forced by his mother, a woman who is desperate for grandchildren to pick a woman to be his Duchess. His mother vows to be able to turn any one of the ladies of Spindle Cove into a woman that the Ton will accept as Duchess material. Griff offers Pauline a good sum of money to take his mother up on her offer and to fail spectacularly. Pauline doesn't see this as a problem.
I love Tessa Dare more and more with every book of hers I read.
It's worth a credit. It's worth the money. And most importantly, it's worth the time it took to listen to it.
I thoroughly enjoyed every minute.

Genre: Regency Romance
Performance by Eva Kaminsky was above average, except for a couple of mispronunciations which weren't bad enough to spoil everything for me.
This book has everything:
A plucky heroine
A reluctant hero
A determined Duchess
And really bad knitting
Tessa Dare takes us back to Spindle Cove, the haven for bluestockings, spinsters, and awkward young ladies needing some polish. Most of the book takes place in London, but it begins and ends in Spindle Cove.
The hero and heroine are great characters, and they grow and change over the course of the novel. Pauline takes on a little bit of shine, and Griffin finds a bit of humility.
Although this is part of a series, it isn't imperative that you read the others first.
Definitely worth the credit.

I enjoyed the reading...It was very engaging😚 Can't wait for the next story in the series
Would you try another book written by Tessa Dare or narrated by Eva Kaminsky?
No, I will not.
Has Any Duchess Will Do put you off other books in this genre?
I do not think so, but of this author.
What didn’t you like about Eva Kaminsky’s performance?
She did not make the characters different enough and sometimes I think she had the pronunciation of places wrong.
What character would you cut from Any Duchess Will Do?
There where too little well developed characters not too many.
Any additional comments?
Completely unbelievable which would be ok, if it would be a fairy tale. But it sort of did not have to fantasy touch to it which does make you cope better with such a thing.
