Sadly this book has two almost fatal flaws: a heroine you just want to slap for behaving so stupidly and a narrator who always makes the heroines sound strident, stupid and silly. Voice differentiation is terrible. Difficult to tell between men and women too much of the time. All voices are harsh. It's unfortunate these early audio versions of Beaton's books had to use such terrible performers.
It might be worth the producers to re-record these books with some of the terrific narrators available today. I know I would be willing to purchase the new versions and delete these old ones. Beaton's books, especially the regency romances are worth listening to time and again. I already do to some extent, when I don't have to listen with gritted teeth as I have to do with Lindy Nettleton and Charlotte Ann Dore.
