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.
This mystery is exactly the type of book Lady Georgiana would read by the fire on a cold blustery day. I am constantly amazed at Katherine Kellgren 's voice acting talent! With such a variety of accents and ages in this performance, it's easy to forget that only one person is narrating the story.
The blossoming relationship between Darcy and Georgie is so charming and refreshing in a day where love interests seem to go from first glance to intimate physical relations in a matter of chapters. And while some characters such as Belinda and Georgie's mother still tend to talk and act very casually about sex, I was happy to see some gentle hints that their lives weren't as happy and glamorous as originally they would seem. In fact, I suspect Georgie's Rannoch ancestors and maybe even her Great Aunt, the Queen Victoria, would approve of her restraint in the face of social trends in that era.
I anxiously await the next installment in Rhys Bowen ' s Her Royal Spyness series!
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.
