Way too repetitive...

What disappointed you about The Marriage Wager?

I hadn't even gotten to the fateful game, but it was repetitive. The heroine could have made at least 5 better choices before she even got there.

What do you think your next listen will be?

One of the author's favorite writers -- Georgette Heyer. She was the woman who kicked off Jane Austen's legacy in the 20th Century, and is a master at the whole Regency (and Georgian) genre(s).

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

She has a pleasant voice, but should differentiate the sexes a little more clearly. Repartee doesn't work when it's the same intonation.

It's an ok story, the main characters could have been better developed. The fact that they married and then didn't talk to each other about their problems was stupid. I would not recommend to a friend.
