A light historical romance

There was good and bad for me with this one. The narration was great and the ending came together, and I liked Stuart and Verity enough to want to find out how their story ends. But for much of the story we go back and forth through time, which made it a difficult story to listen too. I think this would be a better story in book form as you are less likely to get lost. I rewound a lot to see what date the story was in. It was a cute historical regency romance, but there are some plot twists that I felt was too unbelievable to swallow without rolling my eyes. But this author can write, and despite some big flaws in the story it held my interest to the end. Also, the speaker was fantastic, which helped make this one a good listen.
