Publisher's Summary

Award-winning author Elizabeth Mansfield presents the captivating tale of a fiercely independent woman who learns a shocking secret that leads to a startling lesson in love Olivia Matthews may be unversed in the ways of love, but her eyes don't deceive her.
Her sister's husband Miles Strickland, seventh Earl of Langley, is a scoundrel. Olivia just caught him in the arms of another woman. When she dares to confront him, the blackguard has the gall to accuse her of blackmail.
Determined to expose his unfaithfulness, Olivia leaves London to visit her sister in the English countryside, where her world is overturned. Suddenly, she is trying to rein in her rambunctious niece and nephew, fending off the amorous attentions of two suitors... and falling in love with the very nobleman she had vowed to hate forever.

Great Story, Excellent Narration

If you could sum up The Fifth Kiss in three words, what would they be?

A good regency romance

Who was your favorite character and why?

The narrator does a great job with all these characters but if I have to choose I'd say I liked Olivia the main character because she develops as the story goes along and you go from an initial opinion of her character to another as she grows. I also loved the exchanges the two Aunts have, funny.

What does Ruth Urquhart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I think the characterisation is brilliant, it was like listening to a radio play and her voice as the narrator is pleasant to listen to.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

both.

Any additional comments?

This is a great regency period story with author and narrator bringing to life beautifully the setting, period and the many characters. Ruth has a great voice for this piece. The characters were all well defined and the narration easy and pleasant to listen too. It's been very relaxing to spend my Sunday in this era with these characters. Well done.
