I am relistening to this series and I forgot how great it was in the beginning. Georgie is delightful and all the supporting characters make a fun easy listening audio book.
This book was just the right touch of fun and mystery. I love the British accents especially when she did the W for all Rsand she threw in enough suspects to make it just confusing enough. I didn't figure it out till the end
This is my third book in the Royal Spyness series by Ryse Bowen. (obviously I haven't listen to them in order) I really enjoy both her writing and of course the incomparable Katherine Kellgren as a narrator.
They are a jolly good romp with a well thought of mystery always lurking around the corner. I figured this one out rather quickly but the other two had me guessing till the end. Always good light entertainment! I'm going back for more.
I hate spoilers so I'm not going to give a detailed review but suffice to say the plot did not need the casual homophobia that came through in the authors choices. I really wanted to love this series and will not be reading anything else by the author after this experience.
This was an entertaining fictional view of how members of the extended royal family made their way in post WWI England. The mystery surrounding the detective was intriguing.
I have listened to the entire series and have loved it all. It is a fun homage to the Queen of who-done-its, Agatha Christie, that includes interesting historical tidbits wrapped in a layer of lovable charachters.
I was utterly enchanted by the characters, setting and ever deepening mystery. Georgie was delightful, and I was immediately invested in her story from the moment she heard her brother and sister-in-law plotting to marry her off, right up and until Darcy O'Mara snogged her! Lady Georgina really is a splendid heroine!
I laughed out loud during most of Georgie's misadventures, but particullarly enjoyed her efforts in cleaning houses!
Katherine brought wonderful variation to all the accents of the characters, especially the pretentious 'public' school tendency to turn 'r's into 'ws'. So funny!
I am ecstatic that I have a whole series to feast upon!
