Cristabel is happy with her new situation and with the female tenants of the house. They are exceedingly well-dressed for working-class girls and have many admirers. Cristabel soon has a beau of her own - the dashing Lord Winstoke, who seems just a tad familiar, both in appearance and in attitude. Of course, Cristabel maintains propriety in every situation. But she cannot understand why the men she meets are so forward. Could it be the company she keeps?

More Barbara Metzger, please!
This is a traditional romance with lots of humour.
I love reading and rereading Barbara Metzger's and Mary Balogh's earlier books. I hope more of these are available soon for audible release.

Forgettable But Fun. Listen While You Fold Laundry
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Sure. I didn't like it as much as Metzger's 'A Loyal Companion' (which I loved), but it was still a nice enough way to pass the time. Forgettable, but nice. Basically, it's a good thing to have on in the background when you're doing chores or whatever. Doesn't require a whole lot of attention, but still keeps you entertained.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The heroine's obliviousness to the fact she's become the landlady to a 'house of ill repute' led to some pretty funny scenes.
Which scene was your favorite?
When Christabel finally figures out she's living in a bordello and cleans house (literally and figuratively). It's especially satisfying when she kicks the scummy fellow out on his ear.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I actually did listen to it in one day. I was stuck in bed sick and just wanted to listen to something nice, unchallenging, and entertaining. This fit the bill.
Any additional comments?
Despite the fact that the heroine is living in a bordello (without her knowledge—she think's she's a respectable landlady with borders that keep odd hours. Ha!), the book is very clean. As long as that part of the plot doesn't bother you, I'd say it's a perfectly fine audio to give to teens etc. As an aside, the audio quality still isn't perfect here, but it's than 'A Loyal Companion." The story is fun enough it's worth a few repeated lines or shaky audio here and there.

Another great romp
What did you like most about Cupboard Kisses?
The characters in this book are as always in Barbara's books lovable. Heroine suspiciously naive, alas, but otherwise one can not but love her.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Cupboard Kisses?
The capture of the eeeeeeeevil villain
What does Stevie Zimmerman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
She has excellent voice. I do however think that recording studio needs to edit all the books from BM big time. You can hear that Ms. Zimmerman lost her way in book couple of times and re-reads last sentence. This needs to be edited. Even I can do it on my PC, surely for max enjoyment and for sake of Ms. Zimmerman's excellent read it is worth to go through the audio and edit it a bit..
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
How to travel with harp (?)
