    Penniless and 34th in line to the throne, Lady Georgiana Rannoch finds herself in a truly draining state of affairs. To escape her hateful brother, Georgie accepts an invitation from the Queen to represent the royals at a wedding in Transylvania. But at the macabre- looking castle, Georgie finds the bride with blood running down her chin, and a wedding guest is poisoned.

    Where does Royal Blood rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Counting series as one, top ten. Admittedly, I didn't love book 1- I usually prefer mysteries with a bit more to them in this genre, but I'm SO glad I stuck it out, I thought this one was a ton of fun.


    What other book might you compare Royal Blood to and why?

    Honestly, I don't usually listen to books with this much of a romance bent to them- they always seem rather silly. Laurie R. King's Mary Russell series is one of my all time favorites- this is sort of a cross between that and maybe a Jane Austin novel with a hint more lightheartedness.


    Which character – as performed by Katherine Kellgren – was your favorite?

    The creepy Count Dragomere


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Moved me to laughter, yes- several

    Georgie, aka Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie, cousin of King George V of England, is penniless and trying to survive on her own as an ordinary person in London in 1932. So far she has managed to light a fire and boil an egg... She's gate-crashed a wedding... She's making money by secretly cleaning houses... And she's been asked to spy for Her Majesty the Queen.

    Would you listen to Her Royal Spyness again? Why?

    Yes! I'm so glad I stuck out the first three books, the fourth was lots of fun and this fifth seems like the beginning of something really great. Delightfully comic- think Pink Panther- and yet becoming a true spy mystery this time. Am hooked and hoping for another soon!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There are many zany characters to enjoy, but I think one finds oneself most glued to the plight of Lady Georgiana, the main character, who's very real even in her flawed and humorous ways.


    What about Katherine Kellgren’s performance did you like?

    The first book I found her voice a little off-putting, but by this point in the series, she has managed to convey an amazing number of characters differently- very well done.
