It took too long to get to the actual mystery.
Probably not. I hardly ever go see a movie about a book I've already read
This is the first in the series and I fell in love with the storyline and characters.
It was kind of difficult for me to read in the beginning because I become quite involved with a book's characters. I felt quite embarrassed for Georgie due to her awkwardness and clumsiness. But I found her to be very likable and kind. Therefore I found myself rooting for her and anxiously awaiting another mishap which often seemed to work in her favor later on.
I am afraid that I'm nearing the end of this series, but feel there is still so much to tell that perhaps Ms Bowen will agree
a little predictable but nevertheless a jolly good listen. I enjoyed the characters and the author uses her words to create vivid environments.
Really good historical mystery novel. The narrator at first got under my skin but as the novel went on, she was a delight. Story, plot, characters all good. I'll be getting the rest of the series.
This novel is like the love child of Wodehouse and a Barbara Michaels gothic. It was a great deal of fun to listen to, given the phenomenal talent of the narrator. I'm looking forward to continuing the series.
So much fun! Loved all the characters. It was slightly predictable but I didn't care because I was loving all the characters so much!
I haven't read this book, but listening to it was a treat. The narration was quite entertaining. If someone had a choice, I would actually suggest the audio, as it was such a pleasure.
I had a hard time turning off my ipod, even when I needed to get to sleep! The story moves at a constant pace. I figured out "who done it" early on, but it was still really fun to see how the characters would develop and how the story would unfold. The story is light and humorous with just the right amount of tension.
Katherine Kellgren was a wonderful reader - one of the best. She brought life to each character. They were easy to distinguish in both accent and intonation.
I enjoyed the setting in 1930's London as well as the characters, who were upper crust, but struggling financially and having to fend for themselves for the first time. I will likely follow up and listen to further books in this series as this book was like chocolate candy - delicious!
