Audio Review: Will's true wish - Grace Burrowes

Will Dorning, as an earl's spare, has accepted the thankless duty of managing his rambunctious younger siblings, though Will's only true companions are the dogs he's treasured since boyhood. When aristocratic London is plagued with a series of dognappings, Will's brothers are convinced that he's the only person who can save the stolen canines from an awful fate. Shy, bookish Lady Susannah Haddonfield has no patience with loud, smelly beasts of any species, but must appear to like dogs so as not to offend her sister's only marital prospect. Susannah turns to Will, an acquaintance from her most awkward adolescent years, to teach her how to impersonate a dog fancier. Will has long admired Susannah, though he lacks the means to offer for her, and yet as they work together to rescue the purloined pets, it's loyal, dashing Will who steals Susannah's heart. 

Audio CD, 9 hPublished September 12th 2017 by Tantor Audio (first published February 2nd 2016)True Gentlemen #3Historical romanceFor review

My thoughts:
I like her books because they are just so sweet. And the characters talk to each other, there are no misunderstandings, they talk, they get to know each other. And in audio that works really well, you know, them talking and all.

Susannah is on her way to spinsterhood and fine with it. Instead she is trying to launch her sister and find her a match. Susannah would rather be home reading.

Will trains dogs, or humans if you look at it like that, he does not have a lot to offer and wont.

And someone is stealing dogs! Evil is afoot.

So they meet, they talk, they flirt. We meet her sister, his brother. Everyone is fun and lovely. Well except the guy who wants to marry her sister, he is a fool.

Sweet and I want heas for everyone in this book.

Narrator: Jame Langton
I have listened to quite a few by him now and he does Burrowes books so well. His proper voice is so excellent and my face betrays me every time something happens in this book. I do wonder how I look to those meeting me ;)

The only weird thing would be the very deep voices he has for some men to show they are all different, but at least it makes them all sound different then, so it works.

I do enjoy his narration. And I'd say her books works excellent to listen to.



  1. it is nice to have another good one!

  2. lovely review. I do like this author. And good narrator as well.

  3. This sounds so sweet. And Susannah sounds like someone I would like.

  4. I love listening to historical romances! Usually they read with an English accent which I love. I'll have to give this one a go. :)

  5. A book like this is a joy and adds to life. I like it when they talk out their differences, always impresses me when an author has them do that.

  6. Yes, with female narrators the male voices either work or sound horse.

  7. I like narrators who vary their voices! Even if they're bad at it, I appreciate the attempt, at least you know different characters are talking. Never had any experience with James Langton, but in my experience, men who narrate romances typically have very pleasant/sexy sounding voices ;-)

    1. I do like men narrating romance now, I seem to prefer it

  8. I really want to try Burrowes. But probably written not audio.

  9. Still haven't read her although I have one of her books! Every time you review one it reminds me I need to read it. And then I don't lol

    For What It's Worth

  10. Not sure if I read her before but I own a ton of her books, oops
