Unexpectedly excellent

I purchased this book before I had listened to "These Old Shades", also narrated by Cornelius Garrett. I thought he ruined that book and started this with low expectations! I was wrong! He makes an excellent job of this narration, giving different voices and accents as well as bringing the humour and wit out with full force. The main characters all come across as they do in the written word and the dog, " Bouncer" steals the show with his antics.. While a very unlikely plot,its good story to build a Heyer Romance around. A very good listen if you previously have read the book.

A good read

I particularly enjoyed the narrator as I find mans voice has far more variations which makes it easier to identify the characters.
This is a cracking good story which keeps surprising right to the end.
I always enjoy a feisty female lead character.
