Very enjoyable!

Another fun Quinn story and a wonderful start to a new series. The plot line in this book stands well on its own, but if you are familiar with several of Quinn's other series, you will enjoy the subtle references and tie-ins.The only thing that bothered me (and then only slightly) was a bit of a change in the heroine's point of view about her family's musical at the end. I'm looking forward to the next books and hoping that Iris and Sarah all get their turns. :)

I enjoy listening to Rosalyn Landor's narrations. She's done the narrations for many of Quinn's books and the narration for the one book that Landor didn't do drove me nuts. I'd like to point out that contrary to a previous review: if you liked the narration of Ten Things I Love About You or What Happens In London, you'll enjoy this one too -- it's the same narrator and just like always she gives the story that extra little quirk that makes it fun to listen to and will keep you smiling.

One of My Favorite Authors and Narrators

This is a sweet, "quiet" read without the thrills and chills required by some readers. In the style of a Georgette Heyer this is a wonderful character study full of family situations and the wit so wonderfully written by Julie Quinn. Rosalyn Landor is one of my favorite narrators, in the top echelon of narrators, and her work here does not disappoint in any way. I loved her work on this book and as always was so awed by her talent and ability. I look forward to future books by Ms. Quinn about some of the characters in this book and hope that Ms. Landor is the narrator.
