There are certainly highlights to the story but the most interesting characters are dead long before the story begins. Early on in her writing Kay Hooper tended to write "sparkling dialog" but it always sounds forced. She's improved immensely in the last 30 years but in those early days it was as though she had a font of humor that had been so dammed up that it gushed out instead of trickling. I would probably have enjoyed the story more if it had been edited by about 50%. Since I do like the basic story (even if I get tired of hearing him call her m'lady long long before the book ends) I just set the speed at 1.5 and only listen to it every few years. This is a book I would do much better to have borrowed from Overdrive than to have purchased.
This book seemed to have been written for teens - not adults. I have read many Kay Hooper books but this was really not worth my time or the credit
