This book was a great new story idea! I really enjoyed the premise and the storyline. Even though it is set in a school it isn’t a juvenile story.

I did find that the pacing was a bit strange and some parts seemed kinda slow.

My only complaint is the narrator. I loved the way she read the characters and the differences in accents are great but there are certain words that she just cannot pronounce. Once I got used to it it was ok but in the beginning it almost made me stop listening to the book.

Overall - a great story and I can’t wait for the next one!

This book was wonderful. The narrator did an excellent job and the story was light but still entertaining.

This story has a lot of potential but I can’t get past the extremely irritating narrator. She is very monotone with no real difference between the characters, but the worst part is that she sounds extremely nasally/whiny and it’s driving me crazy. I ended up returning the book and I am going to try reading them instead.

Great story with a different idea. I loved the idea of a human who helps others from the galaxy and the narrator does a great job. To me she sounds a bit like Dolly Parton, so if that’s not your jam you will most likely not enjoy this book.

I greatly enjoyed this spin on my favourite Austin novel. The story is short and sweet without being silly or kitschy. The premise is cute and the changes the author makes to the story create more satisfying conclusions for all of the characters. I would heartily recommend this to anyone who loves the original.

The story is quite good but the narrator is literally the worst I have ever heard. Her attempts at different accents made me cringe every time and her pronunciation of words is extremely irritating. Her interpretation of Lady Julia made me hate the character and overall she really ruined my immersion into the story. I would recommend reading the books instead of listening to this version.

An excellent mystery just like all other maisie dobbs novels. The narrator did an excellent job
