It had me at "Elusive"
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
The book had its moments. For example, the dialogue between characters were believable and both demonstrated the right maturity level. I can believe that characters at their age and within the regency period can think that way. The story was not angst-ridden so my reactions weren't extreme but the story was engaging enough to be good. For example, I disliked Jason's "rakish ways" and Olivia was too accepting of her plight in the beginning - but both their characters developed at a good pace that redeemed both characters towards the end. I also liked that the original conflict was resolved earlier and not too late in the book that it felt like an abrupt ending.
Yes I bought this book because of the title. I also thought that it was worth my time to write a review. This is my first book by Callie Hutton - although I won't be rushing to get her next book (like Lisa Kleypas, Eloisa James and Sarah MacLean), Callie will be an author that I won't mind reading again. As to Billie Fulford-Brown, she's not one of my favorites but I liked her narration of the book. There were some instances when her female and male voice seemed the same that I had to rewind a bit because I thought Olivia was supposed to be talking. Anyway, there weren't too many of those so it was forgivable. Net/net good book for a "new to me" narrator and author.

The Elusive Wife
Well written regency tale. I found it to be very amusing!
The narrator was not to my liking. While she did manage to use a different voice for each character, her rising and falling inflections seemed very off. Fortunately, the author's story had me hooked.
