I laughed while listening. These stories are good fun and I found this one the best so far. While predictable (eg Darcy & Belinda arrive) the story romps along. The author has tongue in cheek I'm sure.
The best and most spine tingling mystery of the series so far. If you like the ambiance of P.G. Wodehouse and the mysteries of Nancy Atherton's Aunt Dimity series this one's for you.

Every one of the books in this series is terrific! They are very funny and have a great mystery. These books provide you with hours of true joy! Check out the whole series!
Myst/thrillers, some contemporary and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
As always, I enjoyed another great Georgiana adventure. In this edition she is to represent the Royal family by attending a wedding of the Prince of Transylvania, at a family castle in Transylvania. Hilarity ensues when she is, at the last minute, indentured with a maid who is anything but cultured or proficient. Upon her arrival, after a long journey fraught with strange events, she is to find out that her presence there may not be by chance or simple representation. A fun romp with some of the reoccurring characters, in a spooky old castle, cut off from civilization. Imaginations are heightened and running rampant, after the death of one of the guests, that may or may not have been murder. Katherine Kellgren does a fantastic job as Georgiana and takes all the characters on an exciting ride.

Georgie doesn't wait to be rescued. She rescues herself -- very impressively when trapped in the oubliette. I admire her intelligence and unflappable calm. I expected her to unload a lot more concerns on Darcy when he appeared, but in retrospect she told him just the right amount. She is in rare form solving this mystery, recalling details and inferring their significance. She's my hero.
Her independence in rescuing herself. Her bravery in standing up to Patrascue when he tried to intimidate her with the threat of prison. Her awkward dilemma in getting engaged to Siegfried.
Great performance. I love all the voices, especially Darcy's. Great accent. My only complaint was for a couple characters she dropped the level of her voice - Patrascue & Dragomir - and I had to keep adjusting my volume to hear them and then suddenly be jolted by a very loud Georgie or Queenie.
Who will come to a wedding in Transylvania?
One of the best that I've read so far in the series .
Rhys Bowen channels P. G. Wodehouse and Bram Stoker in a marvelous screwball mystery that still has me laughing. Even the brief book description accompanying this audiobook had me smiling. Great idea for an entry in the series and Bowen delivers.
I would not recommend this to a friend if they read the Masked Ball at Broxley Manor. Too much is duplicated.
If they hadn't read the other, than I might recommend this one
This story felt rushed and she seemed to be pushing the characters to do things. I does not flow as well as her other books.
Katherine is fine and I have grown to expect her for Georgie. But not Katherine's best work either.
No, this book, needs to be left alone.
Not one of Mrs Bowen's best. But I still love the characters and want to see what happens to them.
