Again Angele was wonderful as the narrator. the character development and backstory continues to grow. I love the introduction of lady wellingtonia. I appreciate that Deanna alludes to things in previous book with out going into all the details, so that you have a general idea but it entices you to read the previous books because the history isn't rehashed every book. Again it has stolen glances and one or two near kisses between various characters to add a little romance spice. as long time Agatha fan I felt pretty certain of who was my principal suspect. So while they try to place a few red herrings to suggest other characters that are probable, in the long run I wasn't surprised by who it was and why.

a nice start to Adventure series.

I really enjoyed the narrator. She did a great job of keeping on the voice is different and her reading Pace was good. There is some fun little twist and turns in the plot. One aspect of the plot I think most people guess towards the beginning but the way it plays out is satisfactory. There are stolen glances to add a little spark. It will be interesting to see some of these characters reappear and future stories and learn more about them.

there are times where the main character has that very academic standoffishness that you also see in Sherlock Holmes but like Sherlock she is caring towards other people and in her case she also comes across a little more independent and standoffish due to being raised as a foundling child.

engaging, couldn't wait to listen

many of the reviews said that they were excited for the unabridged version and that it was one of their favorite stories. I can see why. While it is a Regency romance it does take some twists and turns and has nice adventures in it. The heroin is witty, and engaging mostly seems to address situations instead of just blindly turning away from them. the range of characters in this book between the grandmother and stepmother the Duke's mother all and nice facets of the story. I love Tom the best friend.

I enjoyed the characters and their development. The story moved at a decent pace. I enjoyed that it was a little more racy than some of the other historical romances.
I think there might have been some complaints about the narrator but I feel she did a really good job. I didn't have a problem listening to her. I do feel about chapter 22 it suddenly moved and felt a little rushed in the transition but a very good story.

listen many times over

if you listen to any other listen to Brandt's stories then you will love this one also. The pairing with Alex as the narrator can't be beat. the first salt book is my favorite but the other three are just as engaging. The attraction between the Earl and his contest and their back story as it unfolds is there any caging. Her brother Tom's defense of her is something to be admired. I highly recommend this series. Definitely worth the credit by this bundle.

A long and interesting look at Brussels

this story was very long and very detailed on the Battle of Waterloo. But as it was something I was not familiar with so it was mostly interesting. I've listened to Regency Buck at least twice. I probably won't listen to this again.

the story was excellent. All the characters interesting. This one definitely gets the reader involved a little more emotionally. Narrator himself was fairly good the quality of the recording and the way it was stitched together was very poor. Some chapter seem to be louder than than others or seem like they're recorded in different years. This was such a good story and it deserves a really quality recording.

the character is in the story really bring extra depth. Appreciate in the development of the relationship between Nigel and Roderick and Fox. the narration was excellent. The introduction of Troy was well done. I thought I saw the end coming. I was pretty sure that I was right and at the end I was wrong.
