Very good second installement

Where does The Winter Bride rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Great easy listen, even better than the first one (exept for the narration). Something to enjoy.


What was one of the most memorable moments of The Winter Bride?

The last day of the visit to his parents house.


What do you think the narrator could have done better?

While I am happy to report the narrator did pronounce Phaeton (the carriage) right this time round (in contrast to the first book), she did not for ratafià (the drink). Her problems with the voices of male characters were more pronounced this time round.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There was a misunderstading in the book that most authors would have drawn out, but this author lets characters go to the bottomn of things when they get suspicious and I like that very much.


Any additional comments?

Maybe some people would need a warning that the book deals with traumatic things that happened to the characters. Everybody is different and I would still call it a very lighthearted book. It is nice to have people have a happy ending that did not have it always easy. I do not mind to have to suspend my disbelief for a feel good story, and you have to do in this book, but again, that is totally fine in my opinion.
