This is the first book I've read by Rhys Bowen and I really enjoyed it. The story was entertaining and the narration was wonderful. I found the book by accident on Audible.com and am now going back to find the earlier books in the series.
Defender Of The Week Collector Of The Paycheck. "I Don't Fail I Succeed At Finding Ways That Don't Work!"---(Christopher Titus)
Lady Georgie's Back and in yet another Pickle. Georgie seems to be related to Jessica Fletcher as she can't seem to go anywhere without tripping over a mystery. A series of peculiar accidents have plagued the royal heirs and Georgie after an understandable but hilarious Gaffe is forced back to her home in Scotland where she is to keep an close eye out for anything out of the ordinary. First Strange thing is that Figg is happy to see here and Darcy pops up again. So, begins Book 3. The series still has that fast moving fun the other's have as Georgie's regulars(Gran dad and Belinda) Both make appearances. The narrator starts off a little weak but quickly falls back into normal form as she jumps between character's accents (I just Love Belinda's ). A good listen. Can't wait for book 4.
Yes, this reader is wonderful!
Love them all, but Georgie, Darcy, and Queenie are my favorites.
This series is great, and this reader makes it even better! She is incredibly talented!
Yes entertaining and characters are great
Others in her series or similar to a Rockford Files TV show with women as the stars
She is very good with different voices it is easy to know who is speaking and she adds
inflections of adventure, doom etc.
No - rarely have that much time and do enjoy taking a break and looking forward to coming back
to hear more of the book.
I love - love that there is no obscenity and very light mentions of sex. It is not needed in a
Low level royal takes on investigations, back in the day (1930's). Amusing writing, decent plots, and the requisite romance. Light and entertaining.
Kellgren's narration is a plus--she is vocally nimble and it really elevated the material.
I am a semi-retired psychologist who likes to listen to books, especially mysteries, as I drive in the car.
Sometimes the crime appears to be a side story in the Life of Lady Georgianna, the last person, besides the Queen, upholding the traditions of Victorian England, at least what we have come to think of as those traditions. Well, so what! I have to say that I have become as interested in her life as the finding of the perpetrator. Of course, Lady Georgie stumbles upon this information and falls into the danger that everyone says they want to protect her from while thrusting her into it, like the sacrificial lamb. It is hard to say if this book is a mystery or a comedy. It crosses the lines. It reminds me of Agatha Cristy often. Possibly its lightheartedness masks the true art and beauty of the book, much as Cristy's have.
The narrator is exceptional in this book. The accents are numerous and she does a great job of increasing the pace at the more dramatic or suspenseful moments. I can say that this book has a couple of the least believable situations for Lady Georgie, but I continue to enjoy the characters and the plots. I can't wait to hear what happens next, especially with Darcy!
These are are a great listen ..... the stories are truly enjoyable and the narrator is superb. I am seriously sad that I have now listened to them all and have to wait for what I hope
will be another!
This was very enjoyable with some laugh-out-loud moments. I marveled at the ability of the narrator to bring many varied characters to life. I would certainly recommend it if you simply want a light, enjoyable eight hours.
