No brain strain, just a light story full of manners and period detail.The narrator is marvelous. She makes it easy to distinguish the characters (even the male and children) from each other. Everyone becomes an actual person, and not just a character or historical personage
If you enjoy this genre, you will enjoy this book. I do; I think I've read them all

Every one of the books in this series is terrific! They are very funny and have a great mystery. These books provide you with hours of true joy! Check out the whole series!
Lady Georgiana Rannoch knows how to find danger, and thank goodness Darcy O'mara knows how to find Lady G! Bowen keeps the story moving and Kellgren IS the character. This is perfect entertainment.

Fascinating glimpse into royal personages - loved seeing Elizabeth & her sister Margaret as girls. Loved the marriage of the historical basis and the gossip/rumor speculation. It was nice to see Fig appreciate Lady Georgiana instead of being miserable to her. Coronet Escorts, Georgie's scheme to make money in London, with which the book opens, is a hoot. Georgie's grandfather is great. Had to smile at her cousins, especially the one who carried her back to the castle and decided to sleep outside her door on guard duty all night - a big hairy alcohol-guzzling, boisterous bugger, but with his heart in right place.
Georgie was great. I love that she is smart & can recall details to make inferences to figure out whodunit Her bravery and selflessness (she cared only for the safety of her nephew) when confronted with her impending death was awesome.
I love the many voices she creates. All distinct. Great reader.
Even if you're 34th in line - royal danger for all the heirs
This and the next one - Royal Blood - are definitely two of my favorites in the series.

This one does strain credulity a bit more than the first two but still entertaining. Not my favorite but not a disappointment. Moving on to the next one soon.
I am loving listening to this series! This narrator does such a good and just makes the whole thing enjoyable! I liked reading the stories, but I think I like listening to these even better than reading a paper copy!
I can't really rank Royal Flush...I've listened to way too many. But, the Royal Spyness series is great fun. The books are all light-hearted murder mysteries with fun characters. There is just enough twist in the plots to keep the reader guessing about Who Done It!
Katherine Kellgren's voice is wonderful to listen to. She varies her characters that the reader recognizes each one early into the books. A great narrator!!!
I laughed at all of these books! They are easy listening and great fun.
I enjoy this series. The main character doesn't take herself too seriously so I read them when I want something light. The narrator has a pleasant voice and tempo and is adept at voicing multiple characters with seeming ease.
