Nonfiction writer by day, fiction lover by night.
The accents were well done and the tone was perfect. This is a bright, cheery mystery with more character development than I usually get from lightweight mysteries. Both the main and secondary characters are endearing. I'm excited to have found this new series and intend to listen to them all now.
The narrator was AMAZING! Extremely talented and did a remarkable job with all the accents... upper crust British, Cockney, Irish, male and females!
The story was wonderfully written and completely charming. I was engrossed from the first moment!
I'm about half way through the series and still enjoying it very much. The narrator is wonderful, and Georgie is a thoroughly delightful character. I recommend it highly!
The narration is excellent! The narrator brings all the characters to life. You begin to feel like you really know them. She really draws you into the story. I love the historical perspective that is woven into the story and the humor is excellent!
Reminds me of the Agatha Christie books
I love Georgie and Darcy... The development of their relationship keeps you wanting more. I also adore Georgie's cockney Grandfather.
I can't wait to finish the series but then I will be heartbroken because I will miss all the character!!
I so enjoyed this story, the characters and the reader! I am going to listen to every one in the series!!!!!
Exactly what I hoped for ,not too much , but with a mystery to solve
Love the main character
I'm a very simple person who love to read or listen to books. My favorite genre is Historical Romance but am willing to spread my wings and fly temporarily over to sample a little young adult adventure or suspense, but I will without fail, return to romance..
I am not a suspense kind of listener/reader but I must admit to enjoying every portion of Her Royal Spyness.
I found myself laughing out loud throughout the listen.
Very enjoyable and worth the credit.
I purchased this book after hemming and hawing.
The reviews were so promising. Rhys Bowen was supposed to be such a great writer.
Well, stick with Nancy Drew books.
They are a little more "involved" with a plot
What can I say. Dull, Boring. Fast forwarded almost everything.
What a disappointment!!
Near the top.
Yes, it was a great story and very entertaining!
Yes, all of them are great!
Katherine does a wonderful job capturing the different voices and the "Bertie Wooster" type humor. Her voices are different for each character and consistent throughout the book. I loved this, and downloaded two other books in the series!
I highly recommend this book!
I would listen to Her Royal Spyness again because I found it very entertaining and funny. I would probably hear new things I missed the first time. Plus, in my opinion, it would be a book listening to again.
I thought the funny parts were Georgie's clumsiness and her lack of ability to clean and care for her needs.
At the beginning of the book I was beginning to wonder if I was going to enjoy listening to Katherine Kellgren's narration, but the more I listened the better I enjoyed her. I can't think of anyone better that could do the book justice. I would look for other books by her.
This book made me laugh! I also found myself telling my husband bits of it, which I never do.
I loved the characters and how the narrator portrayed them. I loved Belinda and Georgie's grandpa. I have just bought the rest of the books in the series.
