Not the best I've read by this author. I have a question though...Who edited this book? It was so repetitive that I wonder at the effort they put into checking the book before it hit the press. The story was interesting, but I was getting tired of the repeat back history over and over. The love scenes were not up to Ms. Leigh's standards. Or maybe it was the lackluster read by the narrator that left me unimpressed. I'm hoping the next book is better.
