A lover of cozy mysteries, contemporary romance and getting lost in the world of audiobooks
Very high up there, if not the very top. This series is one of the best I have listened to on Audible.
Oh goodness, there are so many! I loved seeing Fig in a different light as she is panicked and frantic with all the guests coming, and then when Georgie changes the water pressure & hires the bagpiper at dawn to scare off the Americans. That got a good laugh!
Oh goodness, this is a really tough choice, because they are all SO good. I love Georgie, she is wonderfully narrated, but I also love Belinda!
Absolutely. It's such a treat to listen to, and such a joy that you definitely wont want to put it down!
Georgie is a wonderful character... part of the Royal Family though a far removed one. She is imtelligent, resourceful, caring and enchanting lyrics naive. However, she doesn't grow as a person. We are introduced to a Royal who has no income and is a Virgin falling in love with an Irish rogue also of the aristocracy. in book 4 she is still penniless, still a virgin, Darcy, her love interest is still basically an unknown and their romance has barely progressed. The story would be perfect IMO, if the character growth moved faster than a snail in syrup.
The stories in this series are always entertaining and the narrator is fantastic. I highly recommend any listener of "light" mysteries to give the series a try.
First of all, I'm addicted to this series, and have listened to 3 instalments within a few days. I absolutely love the story, the accents, the little romance - and Katherine Kellgren really makes this series. She is positively brilliant in creating so many distinct and believable characters.
However, I'm starting to get a little upset about the abrupt endings. The buildup is endless, so many "accidents"/ murders happen... and one guesses and waits patiently for them to be resolved. The resolving takes but a couple of minutes - and many things remain unclear, especially in this book. How to explain the falling toilet flushing tank? What about the bear trap? I doubt the author reads this, but if she does - after 8h of riddle buildup - please spend more than 2min resolving them!
Of course, I've only read the first two books before this one but I enjoyed this the most. I was hesitant about getting it at first because the brief description of it sounded so boring but the story ended up being much more interesting than I expected! Definitely worth hearing.
Katherine Kellgren's performance consistently amazes with a full range of accents and characterizations. Well done!
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
