I loved the first of this series, and I think Katherine Kellgren is a fantastic narrator - there are absolutely no flaws in the narratation.
The story in this one though, was pretty lame with dragging on and on with the whiny irritating Princess and the rather unremarkable Georgie so unlike herself in the previous book, and the only balance to the whiny Princess being a bunch of hating on Wallis Simpson.
At about 60% of the way through, I was ready to throw in the towel and just quit listening. But, I felt like there was something wrong with _me_ for that reaction, seeing as I had love-love-loved the first book, so I stuck with it.
Now I have the satisfaction of having finished this audiobook, but it didn't really get any better at all. Katherine Kellgren saved the effort from being a total loss however, because even listening to her narrate an annoyingly dull and bad story was an auditory delight, if I zoned out the words and the storyline.
I was very disappointed.

The narrator and the series continues without disappointing. I will definitely continue this series. Just the right mix of comedy, mystery, and romance. Nothing heavy--just a light listen for when I want to be entertained without having to think too much.
The story was fun!! The narrator was fabulous!!!
The plot was really good, and I didn't want to stop hearing it. She just continued to get into trouble, kind of like when you have options she seemed to pick the worst ones,
I have listened to her performances, and she is good, even when she is thinking she makes you think you are actually hearing her thoughts, and I loved her interpretation of fig and the baroness so good
I don't know, I am not good at that.
I just think the narrator really makes this book and boy is she good
Not your typical Grandma
The story is light, fun, but contain a sense of mystery, which it should since all the books in this series are murder mysteries.
I like that Georgiana thinks of herself as an average person despite her royal blood. The characters are fun and enjoyable. I also like that the relationship between Georgie and Darcy is progressing.
She brings the characters to life! Also, pronouncing some of the names and British slang, especially the cockney slang, is helpful.
There is always something in the Royal Spyness books that makes me laugh out loud.
These stories encompass a part of British history where my knowledge is lacking. It's inspired in me a need to research the royal family and learn more about this time period.

Yes, So funny and smart!
When Georgy almost gets caught.
Georgy and Darcy!
Her Royal Clumsiness!
I love all of the regular characters because you fell like you have met them.
Yes, I think I will listen to it again because I enjoyed the story so much.
Georgie is my favorite character, spunky little aristocrat that she is.
Belinda, Georgie's best friend. She has kind of a Tallulah Bankhead slinkiness about her.
My favorite moment in the book was when George and her friend Gussie went for an after-dinner walk in a garden. I laughed out loud and it crosses my mind from time to time, making me smile throughout the day.
Rhys Bowen's writing and Katherine Kellgren's reading compliment each other perfectly to produce a fun escapist story.
A great read
Agatha Christie's Tuppance series. A smart witty headstrong but naive woman paired with a solid level headed male solves seemingly unsolvable crimes...what else can I say
Yes. I love her voice, her smooth cadence and the changes she does for the other characters is brilliant
When her clumsiness came on in front of the queen
