I do so love this series. The reader brings the listener into the time and style of period with a beautiful voice and just so perfect diction. The story line offers an interesting glimpse of British life in the 1930's while still being fun and interesting. Murder mysteries, above all, must be interesting. I can't wait to get to the rest of the series.
The story is a wonderful blend of humor, romance and a few nice twists and turns. Katherine Kellgren is an excellent narriator with different inflections and accents for each of the characters. Very believable in every aspect.
The storyline itself I think was my most favorite thing. It is set in the 30's with all that entails. Soup lines, the war all blend into a wonderful backdrop against which you have Lady Gereogiana, young, innocent and trying to become a
It was hard to pick a particular scene, the story moves along very nicely and each scene keeps pace with the one before and after.
I laughed out loud several times with things that are protrayed in this time period...it is a very light and breezy story and with the excellent reading of Katherine Kellgren I had a wonderful time each morning as I listened to the story over breakfast.
This story may not be everyone's cup of tea...so to speak...but for me it was a nice break from some of the more intense book that I read...such as The Hunger Games Series which I had just finished when I chose the first book in this Series Her Royal Spyness which Audible was kind enough to offer it's members free. I got me hooked and I've ordered the entire series since.

The second book in the Her Royal Spyness series is as fun as the first as Georgie finds her self saddle with a visiting Princess and has to keep up appearances. Favotites from the last book return as Georgie is also still doing That favor for the queen. The Narrator also has new accents to play with. I look forward to seeing where Georgie ends up next.
I like the characters and the historical background included in the stories.
Her English accent as the voice of the young Princess Georgianna is true and makes her seem like a young girl that anyone would want to know.
This would be a cute series to put on TV.
I would recommend this audiobook to my friends due to the charming story line, the delightful narration, and the indescribable FIG!

All of those with Darcy! (SIGH)
I enjoyed this book so much I have since purchased all the books available in the series. The narrator is so good, I have purchased other audiobooks she has narrated.
British, mystery, fun
The story is placed in a good time period. The mystery isn't too deep. The circumstances are unlikely but lots of fun.

Georgie's royal relatives don't think twice about asking her for favors. Unfortunately, fulfilling those favors usually places her in situations from embarrassing to out-and-out dangerous. "Babysitting" the beautiful, but wayward, Princess Hannelore will prove to be both. Upon arrival, the princess proves to be a spirited beauty with a penchant for gangster films and an overactive interest in good-looking young men. But soon, those associated with the princess begin to suffer accidents. Then events take an even more sinister turn. Luckily for Georgie, her unusual background of royal education and working-class spunk make her capable of handling nearly all the outrageous situations she finds herself in. When she does find herself in over her head, she can always count on her flamboyant friends and family to make things even more complicated than before. This series bubbles over with wit and charm. Murder was never so much fun.
Fun, Fantastic, Inspired
It did keep me on the edge of my seat, because I wasn't sure where it was going to go. I would think I has it figured out and then someone else would die and I had to try again.
I can't really pick a favorite because Katherine Kellgren is so good I love them all.
I love this series and I love, love, love the narrator. These stories help me get a lot of housework done.
