I love P. G. Wodehouse! This was the perfect book to listen to on a roadtrip. Mishaps, light mayhem and a prized pig - what could be wrong with that?! The reader was perfect (Jarvis...). If you are looking for something lighthearted, this one is just ...more

I quite enjoyed this steampunk meets magic retelling of Cinderella. I loved Nicolette and how the author really spent time on her character, making her someone you get involved in. "Nick" isn't your typical Cinderella, and I appreciated that. The wor ...more
