I really enjoy listening to these books. The narrator is terrific. The books are light and fun cozy mysteries. They have humor galore but just enough mystery and danger to keep it all interesting. If you're a fan of cozies, I recommend these books. I just wish Rhys Bowen would hurry up with the romance between Georgie and Darcy!
This series is fluffy fun with a lighthearted approach to solving mysteries. The narrator does a great job and the listener can lose him or herself in this world of the titled class in pre-WWII England. It's fun and easy to listen to.
I did not read the print version. I love audio because I can listen any time. When I cook, clean or ride for long distances in the car. Just listened to several chapters while at the doctors office waiting room.
The narrator did a wonderful job of the different accents. Makes you want to live in London or Scotland back then, but only if you were Rich!
I always like Georgi's encounters with Darcy. He is like her Guardian Angel.
Any scene with Georgi's grandfather.
an easy listen.
It was light and not serious
yes, this was well done also.
worth listening to especially for summer.
This second book in the series was light and enjoyable. The mystery was well thought out with little clues sprinkled throughout, although I didn't manage to guess the whole thing. This visit with Lady Georgie was fun and the vocabulary of the visiting princess was a whole lot of fun. The narrator was once again fabulous, though I find her American voices a little strange. They all sound the same. I listened to this in almost one sitting as it kept me wanting to listen more to find out what was going to happen next. I'm definately going to listen to the next book in the series.
I'm a huge fan of Sue Grafton's 'Kinsey Millhone' series. Was looking for a new female detective and came across Rhys Bowen's character. The ending surprised me and I don't surprise easily. Katherine Kellgren does an excellent job with the reading.
A smart woman in a time period when women were not permitted to be self-sufficient. This is only my second book.
Her voices sound different without being annoying. Some readers try too hard and then the story loses its flow.
A Royal Pain sounds about right. That 'Princess' was a pain
Several months ago I listened to Her Royal Spyness and enjoyed it enough to acquire the second in the series, A Royal Pain. With a basis for comparison, I found A Royal Pain to have a more engaging plot, and a wider variety of characters while maintaining continuity from the first installment to the second.
This is a delightful, light and fun mystery series! Definitely worth listening to! Katherine Kellgren's performance was wonderful and quite melodic!
Stumbled on one of Rhys' books. I usually get only long books, but decided to take a break. They are light and the characters are enjoyable.
Hilarious situations and great performance.
More like eager to hear the crazy situations Georgie would get into and out of.
Amazing range of voices and accents.
Keep these coming.
