Great narration in Regency short story.

Season of Joy by Gayle Buck is a Christmastime short story set in Regency England. After Lord Robert discovers his betrothed (Elizabeth) in the arms of her childhood friend before he heads off to war, Robert refuses to believe her protestations of innocence and immediately goes off to war himself. He eventually regrets his actions toward Elizabeth after being injured - and saved - by the same friend, who finally convinces Robert that nothing untoward happened between him and Elizabeth. After healing his broken body and bruised heart, Robert returns to Elizabeth not knowing whether she still considers herself engaged to him after his sudden and abrupt departure over a year ago. Lucky for him miracles happen at Christmas.

I listened to the Audible version of this story narrated by Julia Eve, who did a great job. The audiobook runs a mere 2 hours and I really wish it had more “meat” to it. However, the narration was very enjoyable as Julia bought the characters to life, using a variety of distinct voices.

Poorly written, poorly narrated

Author and narrator are new to me Was like listening to a book written by a high schooler. Lacks depth and plot.

Happy Ever After

This is a short story about how Lord Robert and Theresa Huntington eventually allow themselves to acknowledge their love for each other.
It is a clean and nicely written story written over the Christmas Season.
I found Lord Robert to be quite a jealous type and this attitude almost cost him his betrothed.
Theresa on the other hand should have insisted on having her say in explanation of what was causing a problem for Robert but it all ends well - thank goodness.
I enjoyed Julia Eve's reading and was happy to listen to it.
I received a promotional copy of the audiobook and my voluntary and unbiased review is above.
