Summary

When spirited, independent Miss Annis Wynchwood embroils herself in the affairs of a runaway heiress, she is destined to see a good deal of Mr Carleton, Lucilla's uncivil and high-handed guardian. And, chafing at the restrictions of Bath society, Annis has to admit that at least Mr Oliver Carleton is never boring.

Irritating Leading Man

A fun story with the usual array of characters. Eve Matheson manages most of the characters very well ...especially Annis, but hugely lets the side down with her portrayal of Oliver Carleton. A pompous and bullish voice all the way through , which wiped away a lot of the Heyer Conversation magic. Very odd as she manages some of the others SO well.

Uneven narration

This is a fun story but the narration of the leading man is SO poor that I dreaded his appearance in the story. What a shame.

Sweet Romance

This isn't one of Georgette Heyer's best, but the dialog is so much fun that it made me laugh out loud. And the book is so well performed that it is definitely worth a listen.

Pure Enjoyment

This audible production is a fresh encounter with a very old friend, as I read and enjoyed this novel years ago. There was not a single jarring note in the performance, which makes it a rare pleasure indeed. Georgette Heyer is dependably excellent, and the narrator did a good job. I plan to work my way through the unabridged Heyer titles, and will look again for this narrator.
