Maybe for a break. If I want something light hearted and a story that is easy to follow while being distracted.
The snarky descriptions of the sister-in-law were funny.
Cute and silly story, well read.
Totally addicted to Audible.
Just a simple, lighthearted mystery with a great sense of humor. Exactly what I love about Audible sales! Hard not to like.
Say something about yourself!
I enjoyed this first novel in the series more than the second one, "A Royal Pain". These are fun, charming little novels about a 21 year old member of the English royal family who is 34th in line for the throne, single, dead broke, resourceful and willing to do light cleaning to make ends meet--and solve murders as well.
Entertaining. Wholesome. Engaging.
All of them. Love Darcy.
She seems that she was born to it, but I think she thinks all American women are mannish - whatev - she's still quite entertaining.
I've been stuck on fantasy/sci fi for quite awhile but couldn't find anything new of interest so I downloaded this series with fairly low expectations. I'm so glad I did! These are lovely cozies and to come in on a 6 book series is a true stroke of audiobook luck. I love them!
Been a Bowen fan for decades. I wish all of her books were on Audible.
I like to read stories about dogs, mysteries that are a little but humorous, stories about relationships that are not too explicate, Christian fiction and stories revolving around knitting and quilting.
I knit while listening so...
I appreciate the reoccurring characters in the series.
I love my audiobooks! Great for traveling.
I actually enjoyed this audiobook. At first I thought that the English accent would get on my nerves. But the performance with pretty great. It' a great mystery as well.
This is definitely one of the better audiobooks I have listened to lately mostly due to Katherine Kellgren's narration.
The story is light and fun. I love that it is set in 1930s England, which is a change of pace from the cozy mysteries I usually read. Georgie is a fun character and Katherine Kellgren's narration really brings her to life.
Katherine Kellgren brings all of the characters to life. She has the best voices for everyone, including the men. I especially liked her voice for Tristram. It made me laugh every time I heard it. Being an American, I really appreciated all of the English, Irish and Scottish accents.
This is just an overall fun book. The mystery was interesting but more than that, the characters were fun and the narration was excellent. While I think I still would have enjoyed reading this in print, I think I enjoyed it even more because I listened to it.
Love audiobooks for commuting and anywhere really.
I would recommend this book to a friend because it is a light-hearted and fun mystery. Though while fictional, it has an historical accuracy concerning some of the real life characters (i.e. Mary of Teck and Wallis Simpson) which were nice little touches to make the setting.
I wouldn't say that it was a pot-boiler, but it was intriguing enough to keep my interest and cause me to finish it faster than I normally finish audiobooks. I did pick out the culprit pretty early on, but there was enough doubt and believable red herrings to make me question myself, which as a mystery lover, is paramount. I am anxious to see if the second book of the series does the same, I have already downloaded and started it.
I have not. I felt before responding to this section I should learn more about Katherine Kellgren so I read a post about her on the Voices blog.
Lady Georgiana by George!
I seldom read mystery series novels (since being a teenager), but this book has awakened a new interest in the genre for me, and I am thankful I did. I would like to thank the other users who wrote reviews.
What do you do when Her Royal Highness decides to bestow her special matchmaking skills on you only to find that she has selected a most unappealing man with big fish lips? How do you protect an innocent loved one when you are so accident-prone that your friends can't tell the difference between clumsiness and attempted murder? How do you cope with your sudden independence, a lone female, without an allowance, without the slightest domestic skills or business experience? Georgie would appear to be a ready victim. Although she stumbles down her path, her common sense, courage, honor and sense of humor serve her very well. She absolutely refuses to cower or surrender. Bravo!
