Publisher's Summary

London, 1905. Sabrina Tremaine is recently widowed and unfortunately penniless... which leaves her no choice but to marry her odious brother-in-law. She discovers almost too late that her young daughter is in danger from his lecherous ways. Knowing she has to protect her child at all costs, Sabrina escapes in the dead of the night to start a new life. Sabrina’s concerns are multiplied when little eight-year-old Alice insists that she is communicating with her dead father. Through the manipulations of some interfering ghosts and the mysterious Madame Lou, Sabrina finds a Lady Help position in the home of Ford Northcliffe, a scientist searching for a cure to the deadly influenza virus that took his own sister’s life at a cruelly young age. Distracted with his work, he makes a binding deathbed promise to his mother to marry a woman he barely knows and certainly doesn’t love. With the help of the mystical matchmaker, the two have fallen into the trap of a forbidden passion and a consuming love that neither can deny. But there are insurmountable obstacles in the way of their happiness, and it will be up to the spirits of the dead to guide them to their destiny.

Painfully Plodding Narration Ruins this one

When will authors realize that it matters very much who they choose to read their material? All narrators are not equal, and a bad one can really destroy a good book.

Waste of money and time.

A good get away book, without any complexity.

A cute little regency romance with just a tad of ghostly paranormal thrown in. I enjoyed the story; it was a simple romance just shy of being cheesy. I liked the characters enough I wanted them to have their happily ever after. I'm not sure the story needed so much time spent on Madam Lou the medium as it gave, but I guess she was trying for a series and this was the glue that held them together. With some of the Madam Lou's stories that Ford heard while he was at the club, I thought that maybe this book is part of a series. It is but this is the first book of two. I also wish that there was more face time with Ford and Alice together. Audible only has this book from this author in its vast library. Narrator was not my favorite, but with this book being a regency romance in England I didn't expect too much. Plus I only spent 3.99 on the story with the Whispersync program, it was worth that.
