Narration is fair. While Brad Wills lacks the vocal range to do female voices really well, once you get used to his falsetto delivery it's fine.
Even though much of this story was delivered in passive voice rather than through dialogue and action, it was engaging. The main characters were well done, though there may have been too many in the background.
At a house party hosted by her sister and brother-in-law, Emma Hathaway was sitting with Lady Morgan Cardiff. When she turned away for a few moments, Lady Morgan walked into the estuary. Emma went in after her and ended up needing to be saved as well. While trying to save them both, Aiden Cardiff was unable to keep his sister's head above water, and when they reach the shore, Morgan wasn't breathing. Aiden blamed it all on Emma. Three years later, Emma is at another house party hosted by her sister and brother-in-law because Emma needs to find a husband. Among those invited is Aiden Cardiff, who hates Emma with a passion.
I enjoyed the time I spent with these people, though the important secondary characters weren't as well described as they should have been. Once I got used to the delivery by Brad Wills, the book was quite engaging.
Bottom line: Though it may not be at the top of my re-listen list, it is on the list. I believe it was worth the credit.

What a wonderful story! Brad Wills brings the characters to life! I just know I am walking beside them when I listen to him. He is the best in the business.
