I've already commented on how great the books are. Now I've got to say how amazing the narrator is. I know each character by their voices!
Another wonderful mystery and romance of the adventures of Lady Georgiana. I have enjoyed each of this series so far. Rhys Bowen is an excellent author and Katherine Kellgren an absolutely fabulous and gifted narrator who makes the story so real. All the characters have such distinct voices and personalities that come to life.
I don't usually rush out for all the "best sellers", but give each intriguing book/author a look. I have found many diamonds in the rough.
I know I'm out of the pack with three stars? Yes, I have read the whole series up to this point, and I love these characters, but I honestly could not get into this one. I had to restart several times and when the story finally started it was already half way through. Georgiana is one of my favorite, cozy characters and always cracks me up, however, in this addition she just seemed rushed and not very comical. Oh well, still reading the next soon.
Georgiana is summoned by the queen, who then sends her onto Kent. She is to attend a Royal function and help an Australian Heir get assimilated to the Royal ways and surroundings. Of course there is a murder and the detective in Georgiana comes out and we are off to the races. Some of the usual characters are wound into the story but to me it all felt somewhat forced along with KK's narration, (a bit shrill). Looking forward to the next in the series and the return of more comedy. Fingers crossed.
these stories are absolutely delightful. and the narrator's spectacular ability to move from an Australian accent to a cockney to an upper class child's makes me feel more like I'm listening to a pay than a novel. highly recommended.
The narrator was fantantistic - if other narrators had her talent audio books would be enormous success.
The mytery was excellent kept you guessing until the very end. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
