Regency Reality

A surprisingly interesting Regency novel, giving a more real picture of life in the times of the Prince Regent. No frothy filmy muslins here. Kept my interest right through. I was expecting a poor imitation of a Georgette Heyer Regency book ( I am a fan of Heyer) but was pleasantly surprised by the gutsy narrative and narrator. Good performance too.

Really enjoying this series-get the rest please!

What made the experience of listening to The Hanover Square Affair the most enjoyable?

I listen to audio books every chance I get. The narrator was great and the plot and characters kept me listening well into the night.


What did you like best about this story?

I loved finding an historical mystery series that has interesting characters, an intriguing story, and moderate romance. I devoured the first three audio books and hope audible releases the other six soon; plus there's a tenth book due out in 2015 . In the meantime, I've downloaded the nine that are available on Kindle.


What about James Gillies’s performance did you like?

He did a great job bringing the characters and the story to life for me. I hope he continues to narrate the rest of the audio books in this series.


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

Any book that keeps me listening well into the night to find out what's going to happen next is a real gem for me.


Any additional comments?

Because I liked this series so much, I've checked audible for similar books and am now happily listening to the Sebastian St. Cyr series by Ashley Gardner.
