Author seemed to get tired of the story and just ended it with a lot of exposition.
I love these light stories with a little bit of mystery and romance. Also love the British influence as well as other european influences and culture.
The key characters
She does a great job of voice change and inflections - it is easy to recognize who it is in the story. She makes me feel as if I am in the room with the characters.
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.
Once again Rhys Bowen has created a delightful clutch of characters- good and bad- who this time inhabit hotels and villas in Nice. Lady Georgiana is sent off in service to the queen and manages to tangle herself up in murder and mayhem.
The performance is spot on, with each character having a distinctive voice, so you'll have no trouble telling them apart.
If you are a fan of this series, Naughty in Nice is a must read (or listen to.)
Rhys Bowen's "spyness" novels are light and fun, but don't do too many of them . They quickly become so predictable that they don't hold your interest.
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.
Another fun adventure with some new french characters. I love the narrator, she's always on point. The story delivers as usual, throwing plot twists and keeping you guessing "whodunnit".If you like the previous books in this series, I'm sure you'll enjoy this one too.
I love this series. Katherine Kellgren does a wonderful job narrating. I can't get enough of the books.
