A twist of fate...
Lord Joshua Stuart, the second son of the Duke of Beaufort, has never fit in with the rest of his family. Though he has a practice on Bond Street, he’s always preferred working in Cheapside, where he can make a real difference. It has nothing to do with his attractive, sweet neighbor across the street, or so he tells himself. But when Kate’s school is threatened, Joshua knows he must help her.
As Joshua and Kate work to save the school, they grow closer, until their love for each other can no longer be denied. Their search brings them to the famed fortune-teller Madame Zeta, who holds the key to Kate’s past. But when Kate’s fate intertwines with Madame Zeta’s, nothing will ever be the same. Will her love for Joshua survive fortune’s twists, or will they end up as the final folly?

Fortune by fate's decree.... loved it!
Kate and Joshua are neighbours in Cheapside, London. The difference is that Kate grew up in Cheapside and still works and lives in her childhood home. Meanwhile Joshua travels in as often as possible from his home in Cavendish Square. Kate is the only daughter of an impoverished vicar and Joshua is the second son of a Duke. So they maintain their formal but friendly acquaintance while secretly wishing for so much more.
Then, one evening, Joshua discovers Kate's home on fire and he runs into the flames to save her. The building isn't the only thing damaged by the flames. The glass ceiling on their stilted acquaintance is shattered and the two protagonists step into a more comfortable friendship. After all, how could there be more between a penniless schoolmarm and an aristocrat?
This book has a little of everything in an easy to listen to package. It had historical romance, the breaking of societal norms, a little suspense and mystery and a healthy dose of action. I enjoyed the story and I especially enjoyed Katherine Anderson's narration which was a perfect match for this audiobook.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

A Twist Of Fate...
Fortune's Final Folly (Fortunes of Fate Series, Book 10) is the first book in this series that I listened to, so I missed out on some important factors that tie them all together. As I am a fan of historical romance author Christina McKnight I was elated to listen to this audio. A sweet regency romance with compelling characters. Miss Katherine Elliott & Lord Joshua Stewart are sweet together. Romantic and suspenseful with a mystery to solve. The unraveling of dark secrets swirling through the pages. Fate entwines them with Madame Zeta (a fortune teller) sailing you along down a stroll of revelation under a enduring umbra of peril. The ending wrapped up the series and brings you back to the beginning
Narator Katherine Anderson tonality gave the right vibes of the time period. Her pace and tone flows through smoothly. Her english brogue fits the narrative perfectly. A entertaining listen.

Overall, this was a very sweet, enjoyable listen. The narrator delivers in a calm British accent that is very soothing and lends itself well to such a sweet story. I very much enjoyed the story between the two romantic leads. Their romance was so genuine and they had lots of reasons to care so much for each other. However, the romance was really only the first half of the book. The second half of the book was more about long lost family and family secrets. This is fine and that story was well done also, but I was just hoping for more of the romance, and not this other storyline. I haven’t read the other books in the series so maybe this is a payoff from reading the rest of the books. Overall, worth a listen if you enjoy sweet books with romance and family drama. I was given a complimentary copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest review.
