Unique professional funny
I loved Darby, Katherine did an amazing job with all the voices.
This is the best narrorator I've heard on Audible. She delivers the lines beautifully. Each character is robust and you get he sense that she is enjoying the story as much as the listener.
The overall premise and plot of this lady-detective novel are entertaining and even endearing and not-entirely-predictable. It is actually mostly predictable, but in that enjoyable way that you sing along to a new verse of and old favorite song. The aspect in which this audiobook shines, however, is in the narration. Katherine Kellgren gives an amazing performance, delivering the roles of the plucky main character, society matrons, posh gents, policemen, an old gaffer, and a host of other characters; she displays a delightful range of expression. Kellgren performs the climactic scene in which the mystery is solved in such a gripping manner that I seriously stopped what I was doing and just listened. Her performance throughout is phenomenal. I would love to hear more of her, and will probably continue listening to this series almost entirely because of her superior narration. Well done!
I couldn't understand the narrator, so really can't evaluate the story. But I think I would have enjoyed it if the speech was a little less dialect.
I could hardly understand a word she said.
I think I'll try to find the book and read it. I have the sense that the story is really quite entertaining.
The highly affected English upper crust accent used by the narrator. It was grating after the first minute of listening. Not much of a story to keep you interested. Found it hard to empathize with the main character, a spunky "poor little rich girl" experiencing hard times.
I am listening to "wool".
Tone down the irritating accent.

Frankly, I bought this book because it was the "daily deal," but what a nice surprise!! It's more of a fun, light read and I love the setting being in 1930's England. Usually, I go for the darker, heavier detective series, but this was delightful little gem to take a break with. This is the very reason I love Audible's Daily Deal. It allows people, like me, to take a chance on a new author without worrying about wasting a credit or spending a lot of money and sometimes you find a great new author and a little jewel!! The narrator does a wonderful job with the different characters sounding so differently.
Yes I love this book. Love the way both author and narrator tell story. Very enjoyable series.
Hola, soy India!
I have no idea, I haven't read the print version. But I believe the narrator really brings the characters to life.
Yes, I really enjoyed listening to the story unfold. The characters are all unique and lovely, and the main character was no push over.
I really didnt have a favorite, I liked them all equally.
Brainless, Enjoyable, Entertaining
Every now and thn it's important for me to read what I endearingly term as "brainless". After reading many trade journals and reference books throughout the day, I've come to appreciate my fun reads. This qualifies. It was a fun listen.
Love to get lost in a good book either by reading or listening to audible usually when I am resting or driving ( audible, of course)
I LIKED THE STORY BUT THE NARRATOR WAS DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND For A NON- BRITISH listener and I had to use the slowest setting to follow her rapid dowager- voiced rendition.GEORGIE,the main character is 20 yrs. old and the narrator had the voice of an aging does get duchess in her early 50s. You should have used a young girl like the actress who played Hermione in Harry Potter movie or Rene -Zelwegger who did an adorable English voice in the Bridget Jones movie.
The idea of a young minor royal rubbing shoulders with the Royals and solving mysteries while trying to service in a life full of loonies,without funds or proper life skills.
HER VOICE WAS HUSKY , DIFFICULT TO FOLLOW AND MIDDLE aged,not suitable for the young women CHARACTERS and far only,Apple's the believability of the entire production making me lose inerest in the book and the entire series which she alone narrates.
DIDN't get that far because I hated the narration.WILL SKIP AUDIBLE AND READ THE BOOKS ON MY KINDLE INSTEAD UNTIL YOU GET A MUCH YOUNGER MORE APPROPRITE- NARRATOR, maybe try the Dutchess of Cambridge!
I love audible but this NARRATOR spoiled the entire book for me and I was so excited about getting it in this charmingly written series.which I will now read on Kindle instead.
Katherine did a very good job reading.
Perfect for rainy days sittning in the couch with a cup of tea listning to this.
