Summary

Megan thought she had it all - a good job, a caring family and a fiancé whom everyone agreed would make her a wonderful husband.

But then her perfectly constructed world fell apart, and she found that her one hope was Professor Jake van Belfeld. He seemed determined to rebuild her life - but why was he taking such a personal interest in her? He couldn't think that her heart needed his attention, too, could he?

Disappointed

What made the experience of listening to The Quiet Professor the most enjoyable?

I am a Betty Neels fan and have read almost all of her books. This title was one of my favorites. I was very disappointed with the narration. I felt that it didn't fit the book.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anne Cater?

Have no idea. I am also a fan of the Royal Spyness series. That narration fit the story.

Any additional comments?

No, I think I have stated my case. I sincerely hope I did not offend anyone.

Hope after heartache

Narrator's voice was cozy and her depiction of the characters was warm, however I couldn't seem to shake of the sense of the hero being elderly. I've read the book in print and didn't have that problem. Also, there's an incident in the book right near the end that is just too far-fetched for me, but oh, well. I'm a Betty Neels fan and will listen to this book again anyway. This is the first Neels book I've found on Audible, and I hope there will be more, especially if they vary the narrators.

Fun, wholesome entertainment

Betty Neels is always good for a fun read. Her characters have some depth and there aren't any "embarrassing" scenes. While beauty and fashion have their place, the emphasis is places on the character of the individuals, which I really like.
While the narrator wasn't my favorite of all time, she does a good job of capturing the personality of the characters and portraying their emotions. She also has inflection throughout her reading as opposed to a monotone. The various voices for each character were a little harder to distinguish, but I was able to follow along and didn't zone out.

Great job!

Loved it. I liked the accents. It made it more personable and real. I wish Audible had the other Betty Neels audio books as well.

Can't go wrong with Betty Neels!

I loved being able to listen while I did other things, mostly crocheted. Overall the performance was great but there was an occasional word that I couldn't hear. Thankfully not very many and my hearing is not very good.
