Yes, solid mystery with interesting characters.
Yes, Bowen always delivers twists and turns that engage the reader.
She does a fabulous job creating unique differences for each individual character in the story!
I can't wait to read the next book!
Loved the whole series. Just finishing the last book. I would enjoy others written by Bowen and narrated by Kellgren. I hope to find some. Loved the period of the '30's, the fictional perspective of Queen Mary and other Royals. Fiction or truth, I liked them all.
Yes, this was an enjoy listen, I usually figure out mysteries out but this one did keep me guessing for quite sometime. I loved the use of all the famous people as characters in the book
to a point it's no Vince Flynn but for a light listen yes it does.
I normally do not enjoy female readers, but I did enjoy her preformances. She is very good at all the accents which makes it nice to keep track of the characters. She does give each character their own voice a book I recently listened to was very hard to keep track of everyone because everyone sounded the same. This was a true preformance not just a reading of the book.
I have listened to the entire series and can't wait until the next one. I have also donated the book the hard cover version of the book to my local library (I live in a town of 800 our library need donations to help with buying books there isn’t a big budget) so that people can also discover this series of books. I plan to donate the entire series in hard cover.
The Royal Spyness series is like a tray of eclairs. So delicious, so full of flavor and little bursts of surprises. You promise yourself you aren't going to have another, but they are simply irresistible.
This is not serious lit-ra-chure. It is entertainment, and I recommend it highly as such.
I really liked this entry into the spyness series. I thought the mystery was well thought out and I didn't guess the entirety of the mystery. I thought the addition of Jean Paul was fun but I did miss Darcy as he really didn't show up much in the story. The new characters were fun and I always like seeing Georgie's mother. I will say these books don't seem to like policeman, they always seem to be dense. Katherine Kellgren gave a stellar performance as the reader of the book. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series.
Among the best, the characters are truly engaging!
I love how your are transported to the French Riviera!!!
I haven't but will, expert narration!
I love everything in this series. The narrator is fantastic, the stories are engaging and fun, and the mysteries are clever.
I have listened to the entire series so far. Lots of fun. Not a lot of suspense. Just good fun stories weaving history with mystery. The narrator is really terrific. Can't wait for the next one.
As a novel, I love the wit, the intrigue and the lightheartedness maintained throughout the story. It has substance, mystery and humor wonderfully blended together.
Katherine was up to her usual excellence going from one voice and persona to another seamlessly.
I think this will be the last of the series I listen to (my 4th out of 5). I had high hopes at the beginning because the narrator does such great voices. But over time, Georgie has become tiresome and annoying. The narrator's reading during action scenes has become so overwrought that I almost turned it off. And I am sure why a man like Darcy would keep coming back for a virginal twit that assumes the worst of him at every turn. Bye, bye, Georgie.
