Another fun "mystery" with Lady Georgiana, this time in Kent at the grand home of a duke, at the invitation of his mother, a close friend of the queen. Georgie is there to help in the transition of Jack, heir and nephew to the present duke, newly found in the Outback of Australia, since the present duke hasn't the inclination of producing an heir of his own. Of course, wherever Georgie goes, murder ensues. Clever mystery, I was surprised at who the culprit was, I admit, and Darcy and Melinda are on hand for comic relief and support. As usual, Katherine Kellgren is tops at the narration and all the various voices. I recommend this whole series. It's like stepping back into time during 1930's London's aristocratic set. A favorite of mine!
All of the characters are fun and well represented by Katherine! The plot was great, and most entertaining.
When Jack arrives on the scene with his course Australian accent!!
Brilliant. She's a genius!
This series always makes me laugh out loud. Especially Queenie!
Can't wait for the next one!
The narrator does a great job
Yes I didn't know until the end who the killer was..
Georgiana of course
I absolutely love this series and can't wait for the next book to come out. It is a classic "who done it?" that I recommend to all of my friends!
Gorgie is my favorite because she seems so sweet and caring yet bold at the same time.
She's absolutely amazing to listen to. She does a phenomenal job by really brining the characters to life.
Buy this book! I promise you won't regret it!!!
I have two rescue dogs. One Scottish born husband. And a love of books that goes back to childhood and bookmobiles!
My latest in this series is just as much fun as the first and all in-between. Royals, sassiness, murder, and just plain fun! If you've not read or listened to any of them, you REALLY don't know what you are missing! It's light and fun and you're gonna love the characters as much as the story!
I am a huge Rhys Bowen fan - and this is my favorite of her series. If you liked Elizabeth Peters - I believe you will enjoy this series. Light hearted fun!
I loved the characters in this book, the narration brings them even more to life. The story was quite fast paced and did not drag anywhere like some I have read. Perfect length.
I really enjoyed all of the family being in the Library with the Chief Inspector and kept expecting him to point to someone and declare that 'he did it!!'
I was surprised at the ending although I had an inkling it was coming. The ending also happened so quickly when it seemed the investigation had only just begun but well worth listening too.
These are getting better. I'm glad Rhys Bowen has quit trying to get Georgie in bed with some guy. This is a good cosy mystery. I loved it when Jack asked Georgie if the fish wouldn't taste just as good even if he used the wrong fork. Or when he went on a fox hunt and tried to help by catching and killing the fox. This one is worth the credit.
when I got this book I didnt realize it was part of a series which sucks but I did enjoy the book & I'm sure if you had read all the others it would be even better
I love clean books of all sorts. Love mysteries, fantasies epic to kids stories, fairy tales, romances, humor, and historical fiction
Don't know. I've only listened to the audio. Kathrine Kellgren does such an excellent job at narrator that I don't know that I'd want to read them. Her voices for Queenie and Belinda are great... but then so are all the other voices. She does them all well. One of my favorite narrators
I love Elizabeth Peters Amelia Peabody books (First one is Crocodile on the Sandbank) They are very character driven, include a mystery, are pretty clean (referred to buy they manage to close the bedroom door), and have relatively little swearing in them (mostly what I call farmer swear words) Nothing too much or overly offensive. There are a lot of books and all the characters become good friends over the series. They are very fun.
All the books read by her that I've heard are excellent presentations. She narrates the Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan and does a great job there as well.
I always laugh out loud with these books. They are fun Maybe this one not quite as good as some in the series, but I still enjoyed it a lot. Will definitely listen to them again.
You won't go wrong with this series if you like humorous cozy mysteries.
