Publisher's Summary

In the third book of The Fancy Lives of the Lear Sisters trilogy, a dreamy, sheltered heiress finds herself thrust into the real world, never imagining that a cold dose of reality holds the key to her happily ever after.
Rachel Lear lives in a dream world with her head in the clouds - and it’s starting to show. There’s the dissertation she can’t quite finish, the ex-boyfriend whom she has yet to kick to the curb, and those pesky 20 pounds she keeps meaning to lose. But when her overbearing father finally runs out of patience and cuts her off from the family fortune, Rachel finds herself thrust into the real world. She never could have guessed that’s where she would finally meet a knight in shining armor....
Handsome, charming, and with an English accent to boot, Flynn Oliver is exactly like the heroes Rachel reads about in romance novels. A man that sexy could have any woman he wants - but he only has eyes for Rachel. There’s just one catch: Flynn isn’t a fairy-tale prince. He’s a real man, with real secrets. Secrets that could destroy Rachel’s dreams - or give her the perfect ending after all.

White magic minus the love potion

In general I really enjoyed the book. The narrator can not do a good job for the hero’s British accent to save her life. Aside from that the heroine’s character is very weak to the point it gets quite frustrating all throughout the book. The heroine gets cut off by her father to teach her a lesson and throughout the book we see her struggles to stay afloat. There are days where she supposedly has no money to even eat and yet she continues to pay a cell phone bill when her ex (the freeloader) takes her phone with him. Oh yes and when the freeloader comes by he always manages to eat a sandwich when she can't find anything to eat herself. Yah Right!!! And she can’t say see ya???? Super weak character. Not sure how anyone with that personality type can ignite passion in a very confident, very handsome James Bond type character but then I guess that’s where I am wrong.

Other supporting characters were not too well developed and the hero’s background is not well explained. Some explanation is given but not that in depth.

Overall the story was good, if you can overlook her personality, and I loved the hero’s character. The book is written in Julia London’s style. So if you are a fan and are not the type to get peaked by character flaws and white magic then go for it, otherwise read some of her other books.

Must love Julia London

What did you like best about Miss Fortune? What did you like least?

good outline, but I am done w/ this author. She needs a better editor. Slow story, had some good characters, but author or editor did not know what to do with them. I have 2 other books from this author and I am very sad I purchased them.


What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I am about 40% done and am struggling to finish. Can this be any slower.


What does Natalie Ross bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Ms Ross had the only redeeming quality for this listen. I purchased all 3 because Ms Ross can read a phone book and make it sound good, but she can not not make up for slow writing.
