STORY: Sally MacKenzie romances are typically enjoyable. The hero in this one is rather morose, and I think perhaps it wasn't SM'S best. But I could see the characters and the feelings they inspired... a good sign of an enjoyable HEA historical romance.
NARRATOR: With the exception of one characters AWFUL accent this was a very good performance by Beverley Crick. Her voices are each distinguishable with both male and female, young and old. HOWEVER!, she is incapable of doing a Scottish brogue... pitifully incapable. Fortunately being a minor player in this tale the affront to my poor ears was limited. He sounded like a Scott raised in India who occasionally was getting hit in the groin. BAD BAD BAD!
HEAT FACTOR: A gentle simmer and a final flare... very well written.

This was a really cute story. The characters were all very likable. I really liked Isabelle. She was funny, spunky, witty and just a great heroine. I liked Hart too. He was strong, rich and handsome.
The story line and plot were good. Different than your typical HR book. The spinster house spinster at the age of 24 LOL. So funny when the women were firmly on the shelf at the age of 24. The curse of the spinster house was interesting and different.
There was a lot of really great dialogue in this book and it really was a fun listen\read.
This is my second Sally McKenzie book ( I didn't like the fist book of hers I tried) and I might have to give her another chance and try another.
As for the narration, Beverly Crick is becoming a favorite of mine in the HR genre. The men sound like men and everyone gets their own distinct voice, whether they are old, young, uppity, a servant, kid etc. She should not do Scottish accents though, ever. She has a nice reading voice and continues to get better.
