I think this was the least favorite of the books in the series so far. I will try not to include spoilers here, but let's just say that I thought Georgie was incredibly stupid in this book. The Queen asks Georgie to recover her "lost" snuff box in a less than legal manner, and even after Georgie is charged with a very serious unrelated crime, she's still thinking about doing the Queen's dirty work. And don't get me started on Georgie flirting with an older man in order to achieve her goal, accepting an invitation to go on his yacht, but thinking that nothing will happen. Did she learn nothing from the escort service debacle? But it was still and enjoyable listen, and as always, surprised me in the end.
The above-mentioned Georgie being really stupid
Yes, she is a master. This one had a lot of French accents, which I don't like, so that may have added to the reasons why this book was not my favorite.
I must admit that this is like a Italian meringue, sweet, light without much substance. But it sure is fun to listen to. I will say it got a little too Perils of Pauline-y for me at one point but, quelle surprise, it all comes out OK .
Danger , Humor , Steamy romance. I loved the luncheon on the beach with Jean -Paul. Discovering the true identities of certain characters and the hair raising ending. Wonderful mystery.
The story here is much better than Royal Blood (I had feared early shark jumping), and Georgie finally started piecing things together herself, rather than relying on those around her, which was a nice turn. Kellgren was brilliant again, and I wonder if I would enjoy these stories as much if I were reading them. I tend to think not.
I wish I would have enjoyed this more. The solution was easier than previous books. But again the ending saved the read.
