Great book and awesome narration..
- Trish R.
Very predictable, but very pleasant...
If you enjoy stereotypical, clean, regency pieces with dependable, reliable story arcs and story content, then this is what you get. It is a wonderful piece to laugh and fall asleep to. It is a feel good fairy story.
This one follows the same predictable story arc.
More feeling, but you can only do so much with such a story.
Yes, because I knew what I was getting into and I wanted it to be a feel good, lighthearted, soft romp.
I liked it.
