Summary

Eleanor Johnson, the youngest of the Johnson sisters, is plain. No one will ever write sonnets about her, but she does not wish for sonnets; just someone to love her for herself. She has lived in the shadow of her three older, more beautiful sisters all her life. Now, not only plain, she has made a fool of herself in the worst possible way.

Joseph Heaton is sick of the fickleness of society. He has become one of those in society famous for their notoriety in putting people down. He is to find that one arrogant sentence was to cost him the woman that, unwittingly, had become the most important person in his life.

A chase across country, an angry father, and a man intent on having Eleanor for himself, are all hurdles that face Joseph in his quest to prove his love.

He is to face the hard lesson that, sometimes, money and titles are not enough to secure everything that he wants.

It jumps all over the place.

The previous characters play a prominent part in the story.
The narrator doesn't improve, as like the story, she is all over place.
Lots of problems arise and are resolved in a peculiar manners.
The Heroine's father is self-serving involved with a bully, still things resolve themselves.

Meh

What did you like best about Eleanor? What did you like least?

Sigh. Audrey Harrison is an author who shows enough promise that I keep reading, but has let me down at least once in every book of hers that I've read. This final story in the series was likable & engaging in the main, but the hero's interest in our heroine was never really developed, it just seemed to happen spontaneously. The villain's story turned out to be largely unbelievable.

Overall it was entertaining, but with so much dissatisfaction generated that it neutralized most of the warm fuzzies.

Additionally, the hero having sex with the heroine before they got married, esp for the reasons given was absurd. And certainly not at all romantic.

terrible narrator

this author is very wonderful and most of her work is completely captivating with just the right amount of everything. But this narrator is absolutely unbearable. can't pronounce words at all and it's absolutely aggravating. very nasally and she pronounces words incorrectly all the time. Like multiple words in a sentence. It's just horrible. She needs some elocution lessons. Also she needs to learn punctuation because she consistently pauses in the middle of sentences at the wrong places, Etc. She's so bad that I will actively avoid any series that she reads even one book in so that I don't have to force myself to sit through her narration just to find out what happens next in the series. she's literally one of the worst I've ever heard.
