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.
I have only ever listened to the audio versions of the series.
I find Katherine Kellgren a joy to listen to. She is that rare narrator that brings the magic out of the story.
I have listened to the entire series and though some have said there are some repetitive elements I can safely say each story in itself is a lot of fun.

I can't say enough good things about the Royal Spyness series. The cast of characters are one of my favorites of all time & the narration is impeccable. Georgie again finds herself in a great house to help acclimate the future heir to a family from Australia. Everything was going smoothly until the current heir winds up murdered & everyone is a suspect. It's a classic English murder mystery in a mansion & so much fun. A must listen!
I really liked that the main character was less dense, clumsy and, well, whiney in this book. Big improvement. But there wasn't really a Erving that followed, it sort of just popped up so don't spend time following clues. As always, the performance was flawless.
I've listened to all the Royal Spyness Mysteries and this one does not disappoint. I've actually listened to all of t hem several times. I don't have a favorite, so this one, to me, is as good as the others.
Yes, it was a fun story with lots of good characters.
Darcy because I am a sucker for a love story.
She has a lovely voice and does accents very well.
No movie, books are always better.
This is my favorite book in the series. Wonderful characters, good fun, and this one had you guessing I think until the very end.
