There is something about him that disturbs her. The plan to destroy Minerva's reputation begins to unfold. And Minerva stumbles headlong into the trap.

I love to listen to audible whilst I do the housework!
M. C. Beaton is by far my favourite author on Audible, her books translate so well to the spoken word. This is the first book in a series of six, I have listened to them all twice, but always have to do all of them in order.
I loved it all.
The only thing I did not like was the narrators male voices.
As a fan of MC Beaton's various Regency series, I was looking forward to this but found it overall quite tedious and I couldn't be bothered to go back over it if I had dozed off.
Charactors are uninviting.
