The narrator was very entertaining. She did a great job with the voice of all of the characters.. The story moved right along so it was hard to stop listening.
This was the first book by Katherine Kellgren that I have read. I will definitely listen to more. The story was light and fast paced. Great entertainment.
Better material to work with.
No, just this one.
Again, poor matereial to work with.
Way too long an intro till she gets to London.
I lost interest very early on with the characters.
I haven't read the print version. I might not but to listen while driving, it is light and fun.
Nothing too serious or dark
With humor and some wit, the author introduces us to the character and characters of the royal family.
I am interested to see if the characters distaste for anyone outside 'the peerage' and americans especially, is just the characters view or if that distain is the authors opinion.
Well performed. I will definitely try at least one more book in the series.
Another pro: while the author skates on the edges of the main characters moral degradation, so far it's nice to 'read' a book where the main character has not chucked all sense of decency for the 'modern' world.
This is the first book I've read by this author. It was a entertaining but yet a solid mystery. Listen closely......Some of the heroines narrative was especially humorous as her antics solve the mystery. Its worth the buy!
Bloody well awesome!
I loved them all. She had such a wonderful accent for each character and it was very easy to tell who was who. She gave each character such personality; it was like you were right there as part of the story.
I happened upon this book and absolutely love this story. The story line keeps you coming back for more. I had a hard time turning this off.
I am not normally a audio book person. I love the written word and my Audible membership is mainly for my son who has dyslexia. But when I saw this book, which I had been eying on my wish list for awhile was on sale for a price I couldn't pass up I decided to give it a try. I was delighted! The narrator makes this book come alive. I could almost not tear myself away from my headphones. I had to make laundry so I could have an excuse to listen and fold. The laundry may not have been efficiently folded as I dragged it out but I at least looked like I was doing something constructive.
Now this mystery isn't very robust or terribly difficult to figure out but the characters in the book, especially Lady Georgianna, hold the reader's attention enough to want to keep listening. Katherine Kellgren is a very talented reader whose character voices are so smoothly transitioned that you feel you are listening to a full cast of readers.
If you are looking for a deeply executed mystery this isn't for you, but if you love a laugh, a little silliness, well voiced characters, and have the added bonus of a mystery to spice up your book then this is an audio book to try. I have now bought the whole series in audio book form which is a little unusual for me. I have to admit that I sometimes miss being able to speed read my way through. I probably would finish these books faster than I can listen to them. But they are so entertaining that I decided that I wanted the whole thing in audio. A lovely listen while crafting, art journaling, knitting, running, driving, etc. Recommended.
I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a light mystery.
Good characterization and excellent performance
I listened to 2nd in the series 1st and enjoyed it so much I had to seek out the original. I was not disappointed.
