This was quite a interesting story and starts at the beginning of Sophy's life at the age of about 8 I believe all they way through her early adult life through the happily ever after.
I really did enjoy the story quite a bit. I liked the the relationship Sophy and her step mother formed. It was good and not the usual evil stepmom story we all expect.
I did not enjoy the narration very much. Lucy Patterson's didn't really even try to do a male's voice. Very disappointing when a narrator doesn't try.

How I loved this story. It was sweet, humorous and just what I needed in between more serious books.
Sophie is such a lovely heroine. She knows her place in the family and is quite content to embrace it so when things go better than expected she is adorably gracious.
I couldn't help but love her dearly.
The story unfolded quite quickly in the beginning, which initially kind of disappointed me. Now I realize that expanding on the beginning would have made for a different story. One that might not have been as light and funny. Having said that, I do think that the story could have benefited by expanding a few other points in the story, especially when it came to Sophie's father. He was such an interesting character, but we didn't really get to know much of him. Towards the middle I had hopes that he was finally getting his moment, but no.
Set aside it's quick pace, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. It loosely reminded me of Georgette Heyer's Arabella, an all time fave. Lucy Patterson did a wonderful job narrating the story and given that she narrates the rest of the series, I will definitely be listening to them all.
