Description from Amazon:
Elinor Bascombe, widowed and tied to an impoverished estate, has learned to ask little of life. With no hope of leaving, the years have passed her by. Lord Ryde, exiled abroad after a scandal, has returned to strip his estate and make a new start in America. A chance encounter changes their plans, plunging Elinor and Lord Ryde into adventure and not a little peril until, finally, they are forced to confront the mystery of what happened on That Night, all those years ago. Are they both so entangled in the riddles of the past that they are about to miss this one last opportunity for future happiness?
This audio book was full of witty banter and comical incidents along with a mystery or two in need of solving. The romance was long time coming since Lord Ryde and Elinor were not the best of friends to begin with. The story moved along at a quick pace and all questions and mysteries are resolved in the end.
An entertaining audio book with an accomplished narrator in Anna Bentinck.
