Could be better

This one I had to fight to finish. The story wasn’t all that bad and the narrator was pretty good in the first book but she made the characters sound like craggy old people vs the younger age they were and it took me fighting to get use to it. I liked the little mysteries they had for characters development but I was a little bored with the ending. I wouldn’t have minded an epilogue if possible

JUST OKAY!!

Audible Edition!

Sebastian Fieldings the Duke of Waverly and Lady Louisa Darby, was a storyline I have read many times. But this was not carried out as well as other authors. The narrator was just okay. Some of the scenes in the story were identical to a story I read just a week ago! That was weird! All in All the story was okay the ending was good!

never again

This book is like listening to someone read a script of a shrink session. nothing happens in this book except for the H&H talking to each other or someone else.. there is nothing interesting in it aside from the miniscule sex parts.

I hate this narrator, Bridget Thomas!

This narrator has a pleasant voice while she is narrating the unspeaking parts of thus series, that is why I can't understand why she speaks the character's voices so awfully! The main character lady sounds like the would-be grandmother in the original movie " The Parent Trap" (with Hayley Mills) and the Duke, Sebastian, sounds like he's a constipated Dandy! All her voices for each character are awful! If I were this author I'd cringe every time I would listen to her narration! The story is good, and that's the only reason I kept listening to this! Jessie Clever seems like a talented author - but I think I will myself read the rest of the books in this series!

Cute.. A lot of Literary Filler

I really liked this book but after reading the first book of this serious it left me underwhelmed. I had bigger expectations for Sebastian I had such a crush on him from the first book. Louisa's character was done well except I thought she would be slightly more shrewish but it was alright. I just hate his many times they kept repeating the same things in this book. Literally 40 percent of this book is copy and pasted from its other chapters. I am still a fan of Jessie Clever. I found her books just 3 days ago and I have already finished two books. I love her plots. She has definately joined my list of literary must haves.
