Yes - it not only provides entertainment and a real murder who-done-it, but enlightens the reader about the mechanics of British inheritance, which is also a mystery.
Characters are interesting, not predictable - a real twisty resolution to the case! Its a fun, entertaining and historically interesting book, illustrating British social hierarchy, politics between the wars and the role of women. I like that justice is handled with a deft hand..
Her performance! She is very talented as a reader, and conveys the spirit of each character so well !!
I laughed at the comic relief - although Georgie's maid Queenie better get her act together and stop annoying her Lady.
After this PLEASE let Darcy and Georgie work it out...after seven books they deserve it!! Bring them to the Americas for an adventure that tests their mettle..let Georgie discover a bit of his secret activities..Let Sir Hugo advance her some of her inheritance before he kicks the bucket..
This is a fun cozy mystery series made even better by fantastic narration by Katherine Kellgren. I have listened to 5 of the 7 books in the series (and read the other two in print) and listening to this one was like coming home. Storywise this book might not be the strongest in the series but it was solid and entertaining. If you like the series, you should like this one. If you haven't listened before, what's stopping you? This series is well worth audible credits!

I love this series anyway, and Katherine Kellgren does a terrific job of narrating it.
Georgianna, always. She's just such a refreshing girl, and so headstrong for the time. Willing to do almost anything in order to stay independent. I like that in a person. The children, Kat and Nick, in this book, were hilarious. And the voice that the narrator does for Belinda is so funny that it makes me laugh just to hear her lines.
When the twins were trying to get clues from the Inspector.
No, but there are a lot of laugh-out-loud moments and I really thought this was one of the better in the series.
The humor that runs throughout the book makes this a book I could listen to again even knowing who the murder is.
I liked the interactions between the characters and the lead character. I also liked the development in Georgie and Darcy's relationship.
The characters are very easy to tell apart and I loved the accents. Each character felt authentic.
I laughed out lot several times while listening to this book.
The only negative was there wasn't enough of Georgie's grandfather. I loved the previous books when he was featured more prominently.
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.
this story was as excellent as always, if you've enjoyed the previous books then you will certainly enjoy this one, if you have not enjoyed the previous books then this one will not change your mind.
I haven't heard a Royal Spyness Mystery that I didn't thoroughly enjoy. And Katherine Kellgren has amazing talent for narrating the various characters so individually. I look forward to listening to future mysteries by this great author.
