I enjoyed this book of the author's one word title romances better than any of the others. The female protagonist is neither whiny nor stridently bossy. Nor is she stupid. The story also seems to hang together better, more plot driven than characters leaping this way and that to fit a trope.
And, of course, I love Barbara Rosenblat as a narrator. Characters are given distinct voices; she can nuance humor (which seems to be a rare talent in voice people), and her characters sound like people instead of 'characters'. My one, very small, gripe is that she couldn't decide how the main character's name should be pronounced so it came out differently in different parts of the book. At first I thought it might be the characters whose accents, but alas, no.
If you enjoy this sort of mind candy, something that doesn't require your full attention and characters who are probably not going to make you either thump your head against a wall or want to shake them for their stupidity/rudeness/inconsistency, then I suggest this book.
I've listened to it twice, during long car trips, and will probably leave it on my iPod for another one in a year or so.

Pretty silly, but lots of fun. There's a mystery and characters that the narrator has fun giving life to. She's not at the top of her form, but still perfect for this book. I like humorous light romances with a minimum of angst and no explicit sex. There is some bodice ripping but it doesn't take over the book.

Thought the narrator was excellent. Her narrative goes so well with the period of time the story is set in.
As for the book...not the worst but not the best. Very predictable. An easy listen but not a tale that stands out.
wonderful story as usual from this author - great humour, and well performed.
