Summary

When Miss Coralynn Notley's father barters her off to the first titled gentleman to come along, she realizes she must flee her home or be forced to wed a despicable man. Driven by desperation, she applies for the position of housekeeper at Tanglewood Manor, the home of the handsome Mr. Jonathan Ludlow. The moment Jonathan sees Miss Notley, he is intrigued. She is far too young and inexperienced, yet there is something about her that that inspires a certain hope within him. Does he dare offer her the position of housekeeper or will doing so result in catastrophe?

Loved every minute of it!

Just like The Fall Of Lord Drayston, this was an excellent and delightfully funny book! I can hardly wait for Book 3 to become available!

I can't remember laughing so much

Not a comedy. Just very funny scenes. LOVED the book. I will read any other books available now or in the future. Great writing and narration. I always like to walk away from anything I spend so much time for as a learning experience. The heroine's personality is wonderful and someone I would love to be like. Lovely story. ❤️

The Sweetest & Most Beautiful Love Story

This has to be one of the sweetest love stories ever told. I loved every moment of this beautiful and classic romance. The author and narrator deserve an award for this production. You’ll leave the book a “hopeful” romantic. 💕💕

Some nice twists

WHAT IT'S ABOUT
When Miss Coralynn Notley’s father barters her off to the first titled gentleman to come along, she realizes she must flee her home or be forced to wed a despicable man. Driven by desperation, she applies for the position of housekeeper at Tanglewood Manor, the home of the handsome Mr. Jonathan Ludlow.

The moment Jonathan sees Miss Notley, he is intrigued. She is far too young and inexperienced, yet there is something about her that that inspires a certain hope within him. Does he dare offer her the position of housekeeper or will doing so result in catastrophe?

MY TAKE
Once again, Helen Taylor did a fabulous job narrating this story.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It did stretch things a bit that Ludlow was willing to hire a woman who admitted to having no experience at housekeeping and then proved that she didn't, but I was still able to suspend my disbelief enough to enjoy the story. And I loved the characters.

Some nice twists as well, which is also good.

Excellent narrator for an excellent book!

Miss Anderson delivers again on Bk 2 of Tanglewood. She defines her characters well and has a great understated sense of humour!

Charming!

Although this is not my favorite of the Tanglewood series (I prefer the first and 3rd books more), this is still an fun book. Be sure to listen to The Fall of Lord Drayson” first, as that book had me laughing out loud many a time! I thoroughly enjoy listening to Helen Taylor’s narration - she is utterly delightful!!
