Publisher's Summary

Olivia Blakesley, self-proclaimed spinster extraordinaire, is quite happy with her life. She has her studies and her duties, what need does she have of a husband? With five sisters married she knows the reality does not live up to the promise, and does not need to personally experiment with the state to know she would be ill-suited to it. However, she finds herself envious of at least one aspect of marriage. But to experience the physical side of marriage, one doesn't need a husband, all one needs is the right man....
Nathaniel Jenkins knows his duty. Marry a young girl from a respectable family and father an heir, no matter how cold the endless parade of suitable girls leaves him. But a shocking proposal from a scholarly spinster leaves him wondering if unsuitable is just what he's looking for. Can he convince his spinster that marriage is the greatest experiment of all?

This. Was. Fun! I've always read books where the 'gentleman' is out looking for a good time, while the women of the times were always trying to snag themselves a husband. But Olivia's experiment was a great haha. I didn't read the synopsis, as I was in the middle of things when I came across this audio book. It was a free day, I liked the cover and the title, and decided to go for it. SO glad I did! However, I had to kick the kids out of the room a few times, so, be on the lookout for that! Those scenes were enough to let you know what exactly was going on, but tastefully done, and not enough to curl your toenails. I loved it. The characters are well defined, and the story flowed wonderfully. Story gets 5 Platypires from me.

The narrator! She was brilliant! She didn't change her voice to a great degree, but you could differentiate the separate characters quite easily. She spoke clearly, with perfect emotion and emphasis where it needed, and I am planning to look for more books narrated by her. Narration also gets 5 Platypires.

So, overall, Bob says: 5 Platypires and 2016 favorite of mine!
