Dialect fun

Marrying Winterborne - Lisa Kleypas

The plot is fairly low stakes, and a fair amount of the conflict occurs in the previous novel, behind the scenes, but the principals are such lovely people I find it hard to complain too hard. I've been listening to the audio, and while I usually don't have a great ear for dialect, I've been amused by the titular Winterbourne's Swansea accent, when he's supposed to be from north Wales. Gwen from Torchwood has a south Wales accent, if not totally Swansea, and that's who he sounds like. But it's still nice to hear!
