I have always loved to read but I never realized how enjoyable listening to a good story could be! I am addicted!
The pot was light. It was perfect for a Christmas who-dunnit.
I think Katherine Kellgren does an amazing job. I will go on to read more books narrated by her just because I enjoyed her so much.
This has been one of my most favorite series.
I have come to love Lady G. This was a completely fun story, especially in December. I'll be listening to this for many Decembers to come. I thoroughly enjoyed the main and minor characters. And many are true "characters" whose personalities brought anything from chuckles to concerns to belly laughs.
I like to watch stories unfold. I don't analyze every character or interaction to figure things out before the author's reveal. This story unfolds well. It was very satisfying for me.
This one was okay. I normally like Georgie but she was kind of a drag in this one. The story was kind of meh, the title gives it away. If you're a fan of the series, you'll still like it. Katherine Kellgren does a great job bringing all of the characters to life.
A little too long for my taste but not bad. I think I'm just a little tired from murder mysteries.
A little far fetched IMO but again it is a story after all.
The narrator makes a great performance in jumping from once character to another.
I love the old english accent.
I opened my own account this year because my husband and I have such disparate taste in books. This is much more fun!
Yes, the performance was excellent. Listening to the writing as spoken by a Brit made a difference
We listened together as we traveled cross country, which gave us opportunity to comment on our speculations. Guessing abounded, but the cleverly devised story hid the truths well.
Once the pattern became obvious, our anticipation for each new murder grew.
Each good novel needs a love interest and this one delivers with a touching first kiss included.
We chuckled together with our realization of the concept, even though we had guessed the culprit earlier on.
We enjoyed the tale.
It was OK. I listened durning the Christmas season. It was entertaining to hear the details of a traditional British Christmas in a country village while I was baking and decorating.
I have been listening to Louise Penny mysteries and Laurie R. King mysteries. This is my first Rhys Bowen book. I think the story was just too light for me, but cute.
Darsie - I love the Scottish accent.
Maybe at Christmas time, maybe on DVD.
See comments above.
Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.
I thoroughly enjoyed this audio book, especially the well done accents of the well-to-do and the common folks of England. It was a good mystery, but the interactions between the characters are what made the book stand out for me. Some funny, some strange and some very sweet.
Katherine Kellgren is one of the great narrators: every character has a distinct voice, and the pacing is spot-on with the plot. Her range of accents is impressive. This is a light-weight mystery but Ms. Kellgren's narration makes it quite enjoyable.
