Like the other Huxtable stories, full of surprises, wonderful characters slowly divulging their secrets. Hero and heroine showing strength and depth. Delightful to the end. I miss them already!
The book was spoiled for me by the narrator her voice seemed forced. I was also irritated by the number of "he said she said" bits, it shouldn't be necessary to add these.
I'm not certain why this only got a one star rating, but I enjoyed it quite thoroughly - as I always seem to do, with Mary Balogh's novels! I confess that I was awaiting a match for "Con" (a character type I particularly enjoy) -- and that made it all the more exciting. I wonder if the reviewer did not care for the slightly stylized rendition that Anne Flosnik offers. When the story is good, though, she gives it "front stage" and allows it to shine on its own merit. Additionally, her tone is well suited to the dry, urbane humor that marks Balogh's works. I give it a four + -- probably mostly to allow a bit of room in case I need a future five -- and recall thinking that this is one I'll want to "read" again!!!

I don't understand the 1 star rating. This is the first novel I have read from theis author and am going to read her other releases. The only reason it is not 5 stars is because of the narrator. She is a little stiff.
