It's a great story and reader. I go back and forth between reading print and listening to audio versions of the Royal Spyness books. But I always enjoy the the audio versions. I liked the idea of the 12 clues of Christmas and didn't get it until the writer made the discovery, though I did get one of the murder's which is always loved that the long arch of the story was moved forward.
Besides the main character's I loved the dowager countess. She's such an old salt.
It made me laugh out loud several times.
I liked this book better than the last two combined.
Lady Georgiana stories delight me. The concept is simple: a young royal (35th in line for the throne) without any money or much life experience tries to make it in the world on her own. It's after the 1st great war in England and Scotland and life is hard for everyone. In this story, Lady G's awful sister-in-law makes it impossible for her to stay in the Scottish family castle for the holidays, so she applies for a job assisting an English aristocrat with a classic English Christmas house party.
Bodies start piling up the day she arrives - one a day, made to appear accidental. Lady G determines she is 'noblesse oblige' to solve the murders before anyone else dies. Lord Darcy O'Mara, love of her life, shows up just in time to help her with enquiries and makes the season bright.
it was very interesting and exciting book to listen to.
The leading lady.
I would recommend this to spy fans.
Maybe my review is skewed because it's hard to get into the Christmas spirit when it's July in Florida (average temp for this week is 92, so talk of snow is irritating). However, I did enjoy that this one finally gets moving on the Darcy angle, not far enough, but progress is good. It's a safe read if you're already a fan.
This was a light, entertaining story, perfect for the holidays. Great diversion for holiday stress.
Great performance ! Katherine Kellgren sounded like she was having fun with the narration.
Mother of three wonderful girls! I love to listen to audiobooks during my commute. Love to hear about any good books.
This book turned out to be much better than I thought. It was a good fun story. I found myself laughing out loud quite a few times while listening to this. This is the perfect light read.
Funny, lighthearted, truly enjoy this series
Gerorgie......Her grandfather - really all of them are well developed characters....Darcy
Queenie always doing everything wrong but showing up when its important.
Reminds me of a female Columbo, not quite put together, everyone overlooks, but he likes it that way, because in the end you realize just how smart he is.
I love the evolving plot between Georgie and Darcy!
Darcy finally telling Georgie he loves here.
I love all the recurring characters but Georgie is my fave.
The holidays have never been so dangerous.
Can't wait for the next book!
This cozy mystery series is well worth your time and money/credits. The reader, Katherine Kellgren, is fantastic and does a wonderful job bringing each and every character to life-- including the men (which is tough for many women readers to do). The mystery is intriguing and the characters are fun. I have not been disappointed yet by a single book in the series. This one is just as good as the others, but definitely read them in order.
