Summary

A royal romance story.

Clementine Fitzroy, Duchess of Rosebrook, doesn’t trust dreamers. After her grandmother and famous social reformer blew the family fortune on her dream of creating a new kind of community, the family land was sold off and their coffers drained. Clementine grew up watching her mother struggle and, now, lives in the small gatehouse behind her former family home.

Evan Fox has a dream that could change the world and save the planet. As CEO of her family toy company, she creates fuel for the imagination. When the Rosebrook estate comes up for sale, Evan jumps at the chance to make her vision of a utopian eco-community come to life.

Clementine is wary of the good-looking newcomer, but Evan is determined to win over the beautiful duchess and prove that, sometimes, dreams really do come true.

American narrator for an English book?

Why is the narrator American?! The book is set in England, all of the characters are English... but it is read in an American accent and all of the characters’ voices are over the top posh English, they all sound the same. The only ones who it’s feasible to have posh accents are Clementine and her mother, all the other characters should speak normally.

Hats off to Jenny Frame for another wonderful story, but this audiobook is really let down by the narrator.

Disappointing

I have really enjoyed other books in this series but I really struggled with the American narrator. I appreciate it is probably made with the American audience in mind but the accents were not good at all and some really bad pronunciation of words. I wanted to like it but the story was very twee and a little obvious I’m afraid. A real shame.

New love in so many ways

Loved these characters.. I can empathize with Clem on how life can beat you down but loving dreamers like Evan makes life beautiful. Wonderfully narration by Kiera Grace. Last but least.. Jenny Frame!!! You make these bleak times have a glimmer of hope. ❤️

Wonder love story

It’s always a pleasure to hear Keira Grace narrate any story. It’s only a plus when she’s associated with a truly sweet story. If you’re looking for sweet love story with out the drama this one is a good one for you.

Perfect!

This is the perfect story for lesbian romantics who also love stories that take place in the English countryside. Evan is so dapper I was swooning while listening! And Clementine has great development. Awesome book!

A well told story

This story was written with sensitivity I loved the characters, although Clam was a little gloomy in my opinion. I thought the last 3 chapters were probably redundant but I liked them as well.

Another great book by Jenny Frame!

I love how Jenny Frame pulls you into the lives of her characters. You get to see them develop and see all their joys and pains. I loved Fox and Clementine together. What a great couple! Fox was so sweet! She had such a great outlook on life that you can't help but root for her. I look forward to seeing more of this couple. I really liked the narration! Great story!

another winner

Jenny Frame's romances never fail to yank on the heart strings but this one one also gives us a lesson in ecology as well. I had already read the book, but jumped on the audio title as well when it came out. It's a lovely story of opposites not only attracting, but complementing. you will not be disappointed.

loved everything but the narrator

The narrator wasn't terrible, but her accents drove me a little crazy. I would almost have rather had her read in an american accent the entire time. I loved the story and will definitely read it multiple times.

Excellent!

I loved The Duchess and the Dreamer. A story we've all heard in one form or another. But still wonderful to listen to. Keira Grace did a great job with the narration.
