The characters in this story were never really developed; therefore, it was really hard to care what happened to them. If you like light and fluffy, this has some entertaining moments. However, much is very predictable or downright silly.
I think the reader tried too hard to make the book exciting. Perhaps a little bit less forced enthusiasm would have helped. The book did have some bright spots, and some rather funny spots, but they were few and far between.
I'm not sure that any narrator could have improved it. I will probably try to find another book that she narrates to see if the problem was narrator, or the material.
The excruciating detail with which every action was described became exceedingly tedious. I really got to the point that I didn't give a hang what happened to Lady Georgie, and I quit listening. I have to assume she did not get killed, since there are subsequent books.
I enjoyed the audio version so much I may check the print version out at the library to read aloud to someone else.
It was delightfully suspenceful.
This author will be one I seek out and the narrator is now on my list of favorites.
The plot, the excellent narration and the humor make these definite re-listens for me. Katherine Kellgren handles the many accents so well. Highly recommended!
This story is witty, and kept me laughing one minute and on the seat of my chair the next. I learned things about royalty and life in London.
I liked the characters and how the narrator brought their accents alive.
Katherine Kellgren is a very talented, brilliant actress that brought all the characters alive. For me, she made the story come alive. I recognized the characters just from "their voice".
This is the wittiest mystery I have ever read.
I am a senior citizen who loves a good mystery, but I object to books with profanity and explicit sexual situations.
I bought this book because it was rated highly by others here on Audible. Just scanning through the comments will yield many "thumbs up" comments. However, I'm a detractor. I thought this would be in the genre of the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear, or the Charlotte & Thomas Pitt series by Anne Perry, both of which I am enjoying. The book drags on and on with segments about Georgiana meeting good-looking guys and her friends teasing her about still being a virgin. (She's 21.) I didn't find it to be fun, fun, fun at all (as one reviewer wrote). I found it to be yawn, yawn, yawn. I'm sorry I wasted money on this one. I'll not continue with this series. KK did a good job with the narration, though.
Would recommend this book. It was an enjoyable listen
The reader was excellent!
The premise was clever
Fun! Fun! Don't Miss it!
Yes! Katherine Kellgren is great
Haven't heard other performances
Wonderful series. A quick & enjoyable read!
anyone who likes the True Romance type of book.
Cannot believe that the Heroine captures the heart of the male lead-
unfortunately I purchased 3 before listening to any of them- the story descriptions sounded intruiging. Her voice is quite annoying at times, especially when she shreiks(!!!!).
Yes, if I didn't have anything else to listen to & needed something to make me laugh. A cute story; a fun, light read. I like the whole premise of the poor royal relation, & reading some about the "inside" of that life in the 1930's.
Maybe Tristram, just for his voice!
The narrator is good - but just that. Her accent is not the proper "U" accent she should have for the main character, & that certainly hurt this rendition. Her Irish accent is believable...to me. However, I'm not as up on my Irish accents as I am my English accents. 😁
Overall, though, it was still easy to listen to and she is certainly a fun narrator (her reading of Tristram's voice had me laughing out loud! 😊). I'd definitely listen to her again! It's just that this book would've been a bit more enjoyable w/the correct royal-upper-class accent.
Laugh. No crying - like I said, it's a fun, light read.
This book should have another title. The main character really does no spying - just meets the person she's supposed to "spy" on, & sort of does a little detective work - but it is still a cute book. I wouldn't use a credit on it, but I'd tell interested listeners to go ahead and buy it when in a deep discount! I think I paid $3.95-$5.00 for it, and it was worth that amount, for sure. I'd listen to more in the series.
