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.
It was a loosely spun tale based on the stereotyped Royal personas - pre World War II. The characters were somewhat cookie-cut predictable.
The start was smart and funny but the telling of the tale took a tumble when it relied too much on the Jack-in-the-box boy friend.
Distinctive, promising, good.
Less stereotypical characters and a better plot.
The characters' voices sounded like parodies of bad actors - nothing like real people.
boredom and irritation
I've been a fan of mysteries since getting up with a notebook to solve Scooby Doo cases. I now write my own.
Yes. When time permits I'd probably listen to this one again. There were a few things that caught me off guard, and I'd like to see if I missed them, or they were missing.
No, but few do. I'm just not wired that way.
In other books Georgie stumbles (often literally) onto clues and situations where she finds herself in a position to learn some important fact. This is one of the first times we see her actually work something out and set out like a "real" investigator and it was nice seeing her take that step.
Ineffective and silly. I suck at tag lines.
The author seems to have a style of crafting 98% of a great cozy with a little action and a bit of romance, then tossing the whole thing out the window for an over the top contrived melodramatic action scene for the closer. This is the first time we see it, but not the last.
I'd like to see Georgie get into a more realistic tight spot at the end, and then get out of it on her own, as opposed to being rescued by an interested third party.
