Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.
I'm not really much of a Romance reader anymore, but I did really enjoy several Kleypas' historical romances. This book did not have the charm of those, nor did I find any of the characters especially compelling enough to keep on after I met my minimum 20 minutes of audio.
Audiobook on CD, borrowed from my public library. The performance (and Texan accent) by Jeannie Stith was uneven, and the audio quality was poor, although tbf that might reflect the age of the recording and the quality of the CDs.
DNF after 20 minutes.
