I love this series. The narrator is great. The stories are fun and entertaining. Also even though they aren't exactly historically correct, they do tie into the events of this period in history.
I have been a member of Audible since the mid 90's. I love the format and have listened to hundreds of books. With the new I-Phone version, I can take my stories everywhere with me. Thank you so much for this great service.
Yes, the characters are real, with real problems of economics, politics, and endearments.
It brought forth the morals of the time, the difficulties and a good old fashion mystery.
No, but I will not miss a one from now on.
I laughed, can not remember crying, but could not stop listening. You become so involved in the tale, and you just want to keep up with the characters. Therefore I listened to all of them. Great while preparing to sleep and charming to lazily spend an afternoon with.
I so enjoy these books. It's just the right balance of mystery, humor and a little romance. They are not exactly light reads but, easy reads and just totally enjoyable. The characters are great and K. Kellgren just does a great job of bringing the characters to life. I have read them all and can't wait for the next. Hope her more serious series comes to audible and hope it's just as good.
Glad to be part of the audible community and I hope that my reviews help to choose the right book and share my love of reading.
This is such a FUN listen series, you have got to get it if you are in the mood to kick back and listen to some awesome, talented voice talents and some mystery, mixed with humor, love, suspense and well british humor. GET the series, you won't regret it. This is one is far my favorite, due to very colorful characters and the the talent of the narrator. You will laugh out loud and identify with the characters!!!
This is a wonderful read by an extremely talented voice actress. Her narration adn characters each have their own voice. The story is a great blend of humor, history, romance and mystery - all rolled into one fun plot. There are five books in this series and I hope more will come - both from the author and then the voice actress.
This story used many of the known historical facts but with a twist of the storyline to make it intereting.
I have bought everyone of Rhys Bowens books to date. She keeps me entertained with her heroine. I feel like I personally know Georgiana.
Because I love the series I would be very happy to see a follow up book.
no, because I usually don't re-read books
Always with Darcy
great. Sometimes her accents get jumbled, but I am learning all of the characters by her impersonation.
Fun, light historical fiction. Engaging plot that perks along thanks to BOTH the author and the performer. Although you don't HAVE to read the series, you'd have more fun if you took them in order.
Par for the course, which is a good thing. The Royal Spyness series is in the cozy mystery genre while the historical figures and events make them slightly educational, too.
Narration is terrific -- I appreciate someone who can carry off distinct voices for a large cast of international characters. I've listened to her read this series and will look for other books she's read.
No, this is light reading.
I enjoyed the descriptions of the castle and winter in Transylvania as well as the silly yet entertaining ups and downs of Georgiana's current sleuthing/ royal obligations.
Georgiana, the main character in all the Royal Spyness stories, is a delightful mix of clever and clumsy, innocent an wise! !!
She does a fine job of all the voices, so much that I forget it's only one narrator and of course it's the difference between being read to instead of reading that makes audible so enjoyable.
All the Royal Spyness books are wonderful light entertainment, especially if you like period ie 1930 's historical English fiction,
