    Story
    (1925)

    The Queen of England has concocted a plan in which penniless aristocrat Lady Georgie is to entertain a Bavarian princess and conveniently place her in the playboy prince's path, in the hopes that he might finally marry.

    But queens never take money into account. Georgie has very little, which is why she moonlights as a maid-in-disguise.

    Story
    Would you listen to A Royal Pain again? Why?

    "A Royal Pain" is the second book in the "Her Spyness" series and Lady Georgiana continues to get herself into delightful predicaments. If only she she knew how to function in the real world!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Royal Pain?

    As is true with any good series, a cast of regular characters shows up and a few new ones are introduced. I love a story that feels like I'm with good, well-known friends and Rhys Bowen does that perfectly. The historical settings are spot on and and the descriptions of the smart set in 1930's London society are informative as well as entertaining. Thoroughly British, Lady Georgiana and her cohorts will please anglophiles everywhere.


    What about Katherine Kellgren’s performance did you like?

    Katherine Kellgren does a great job giving voice to the large cast of characters in these books. She remains remarkably consistent with tones and accents throughout the series and really brings personality to each one. I had a chance to "read" a short prequel to this series and can't say how much I missed Ms. Kellgrens narration. I'll only listen from now on!


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

    I especially like the way Bowen serves up her mystery in an Agatha Christie-like fashion. The listener has all the clues to work alongside Georgie in solving the crime. And in the end, everything is tied up in a neat little package.


    Any additional comments?

    Full of humor and fun, intrigue and murder (the light-hearted kind), and a little bit of romance, "A Royal Pain" is the perfect listen for when what you want is to be entertained.
