Publisher's Summary

On the eve of her 19th birthday, the vivacious Caroline Derwent-Jones looks forward to being free of her oafish guardian, Mr. Ffalkes. But Mr. Ffalkes has other plans for Caroline and her inheritance, so Caroline must escape.

In her flight, Caroline encounters Lord Chilton of Mount Hawke, Frederic North Nightingale, and finds herself tangled in mystery and romance. And amid murder, enigmatic secrets, and a long standing tradition of no women at Mount Hawke, Lord Chilton discovers his desire for Caroline.

Light but entertaining.

This book is light but good listening for a raining afternoon.
Unfortunately the reader's rendition of the male voices sounded female which made any and all of the reading of the interaction between male and female hard to follow.

Darn good story botched by narrator!

This book is the proof that not everybody can be a narrator.
Really glad I've read the book in prints in 2011 because pity the pour listener who didn't.
You needed to know who was talking cause they all sounded the same, the male voices were even higher than the females.

Enjoyed this one, too

I really like the different story line that this series takes. There's not only a murder mystery but also a treasure hunt mystery, if you will. It was a fun read.

In the Legacy Trilogy, my favorite

In the Legacy series, I like the Nightingale story more than I actually did the first story. The hero and heroine as characters are robustly written as are some of the other supporting characters. The audio reader did a very good job but for the first time in an audible download there was some recording degregation. I heard background noise that was distracting but, the story and the reading were entertaining. So 5 stars for a regency romance and an audio performance, 1 star for the production team and sound editor.

Entertaining

I love her stories. However, I could have lived without the treasure hunting. Yet, it is only a story, and performed it's purpose of entertaining me well.

The narrator's voice is easy to listen to. If you like her books, you will like this one.

Catherine Coulter is great

I have never read a Coulter book that I didnt love and this one is just as amazing as the rest. It is amazing how she can write books in the past and present and make them all so very interesting and make you anxious for the next book. This is a lady that has one of the greatest imaginations in the field of romance and suspense she can intertwine both and make history interesting. I am always ready for her next book. I read or listen to them and cant wait for the book to finally end but then find I am dissapointed the book is over this is why I love her books cause when you finish one there is usually a sequal waiting for me to continue with the story. Thanks Catherine for sharing your gift with us. I listen to the books on my 1 hour drive to and from work it is an hour each way and this makes my trip go so quickly that I dont realize how long it takes me to get to work or home from work. And I never have to worry about falling asleep, The story always has me interested enough to stay awake and almost regret when I arrive at my destination, There is not a better way to make a long trip seem short. Thanks to Audible for making these audio books available at the great prices. I am in sales and often tell people that I speak to about the great deals that audible has on audiobooks. I have sent lots of business people to audible especially when they tell me that they travel a lot. Once again thanks to Catherine and Audible for making my trips to and from work so enjoyable. You are great both of you.

Love the story

Enjoyed the story very much. Always love a little bit of magic. What I found annoying was the background noise. It was like trying to follow a conversation with someone while people talking in the background.

Rough

This was a tough one to get through. The storyline meandered all over the place and it felt like the author was just dragging it out to fill a quota. Running out of plot? Throw in a love scene. Then another one. Oh wait we have an innocent virgin that ties her husband up for sex. Okaaayyyyy I finsihed it only Bc I wanted to see who the killer was.

Story was almost non-existent.

The story was almost non-existent and felt like an after thought to the pornographic sex scenes that featured liberally throughout the book. Poor character development. Overall I would skip. Based on this book, I don't plan to finish the series even though it is free through Audible Escape.
