I have read all but two in this hilarious series. This well plotted, engaging mystery delivers a satisfying resolution. Watch out for a wickedly funny fox hunt.
Bowen takes a stab at creating an Agatha Christie-esque manor murder mystery, and does a fairly good job of it. A whodunit with a slow build up and a satisfying albeit abrupt finish. Not the best of the series, but as always Kellgren is a delight to listen to.
I have truly enjoyed this series! Getting a glimpse of the class system, while being romanced with quaint, lovable characters, is truly entertaining. I love being reminded of proper manners, and eloquent speech, without foul language. I can't wait for the next story.
But I was gardening and I could have rushed through as the story passed the time. I usually savour the author's descriptions. I enjoy the way she draws the listener into the main character's thoughts as the story is told. I may listen to this one again in a few months. I have a lot of cooking and cleaning to do at our logging camp this spring and summer.
I have for some time had a "Georgie" story in my library waiting for the right time to begin. It's been a breath of fresh air after deeper and darker books. Looks like there is only one left however. Enjoy the fun of it, no need to look for deeper meaning just entertainment.
Light installment in a light, mannerly series. Heavy on social hierarchy of the time. Excellent narration with exceptional voicing variety.
I love listening to these books.
Her vast range of personnas makes this series come to life.
Yes, as with most of these books, I cannot wait to get to the end.
I really enjoy this series. This narrator is very talented with her range of accents. The stories are becoming a bit formulaic, with Georgie uncovering the truth via grand confession and nearly being offed herself. But quite fun.
