Narrator Jilly Bond creates multiple distinct characters within the large cast, all with discernible classes and personalities. Lady Broome is voiced in an appropriate contralto while Mr. Nidd’s sweeping monologues are as engaging as they ought to be. …While Bond handles most conversations capably, the most pleasurable moments are Heyer’s rich descriptions of settings, furnishings, clothing, and personalities. Bond navigates the author’s intricate yet precise clauses with perfect pacing. © 2018 AudioFile Read complete review

Cousin Kate…[is] an accomplished take on the gothic romance wrapped up in a polished and engaging performance from Jilly Bond. © 2014 AudioGals Read complete review
