I love this series. Katherine Kellgren does a wonderful job narrating. I can't get enough of the books.
I absolutely loved the setting of Naughty in Nice, and though it was a perfect follow up to the dark castles, dungeons, and Dracula from book 5, Royal Blood (which I also LOVED). I've never really known much about the French Rivera, so all through this story I was looking up the cities, hotels, and reference points mentioned. I cant believe how spot on Rhyse Bowen was in capturing all the details. She described the scenes so well that the pictures I found online looked exactly like what I had been picturing.
Aside from being obsessed with this era, I'm equally obsessed with this series, and thought I couldn't wait to start the next book. About an hour in to book 6, however, I realized I was still wonderfully hung over from my adventure in Nice, and decided to hold off so I could enjoy all the lingering effects of French men, high fashion, casino parties, and (sigh) Darcy O'Mara.
Another extremely outstanding performance by Katherine Kellgren as well. She is hands down, one of THE BEST narrators ever, and we're so very lucky to have her as the voice of Her Royal Spyness series!
Mystery, action, romance, and comedic relief in equal measures. Katherine Kellgren ' s narration also imparts such personality into each character, but especially Georgie. A definite joy!
Your mileage may vary
This book prompted me to look up photos of sporty, vintage cars from that era based on the fun description of riding in a car in Nice. These books are a fun glimpse into what life may have been like in that time period, and how different it would have been to be royal and yet also penniless, as so many other people were.
Tiny spoiler below:
I like the reason why the queen ends up paying for Georgie's trip to Nice, because we all know someone like her sister-in-law.
I lose some patience when a woman assumes stupid things without confronting and getting facts so I was a bit frustrated with this one but it was a generally enjoyable book. As always, the performance was perfection.
Loved the location & most characters. Georgie needs to smarten up, & live more of her own life. How she can be so clever on one hand & yet so stupid most of the time? I start to like her & the story & then she does something stupid, & acts like a whiny teenager. It's unbearably annoying. Will try a later story and hope some age will improve her.
