    Book restoration expert Brooklyn Wainwright is attending the world-renowned Book Fair when her ex Kyle shows up with a bombshell. He has an original copy of a scandalous text that could change history - and humiliate the beloved British monarchy. When Kyle turns up dead, the police are convinced Brooklyn's the culprit. But with an entire convention of suspects, Brooklyn's conducting her own investigation to find out if the motive for murder was a 200-year-old secret - or something much more personal.

    "Bad, Bad Narration"

    Story

    I only finished this book on Audible because I like Kate Carlisle books. I almost gave up halfway because of the lousy narration. This narrator cannot do British voices. Period. And her male American voices were terrible, too. In fact, there were only a few characters that had a voice that seemed appropriate. I listened to the book a second time, just to see if my opinion changed. Nope. The main character's voice, except when she was "speaking", was flat and devoid of personality. I might try another Kate Carlisle book, but not with this narrator.

    Story

    I was looking for a series that featured entertaining characters, good writing, and a "cozy" type of mystery. I have now found it. Lady Georgiana is an interesting character, set in an interesting time, and the glimpses into the lives of royalty, although fictional, are amusing. Rhys Bowen has an entertaining style of writing, with occasional laugh-out-loud moments.I greatly enjoyed this book, and have downloaded the next in the series. This is definitely light reading, however, but just the thing for a long car ride or before going to sleep.
