    When Indian Princess Alexandrina is left penniless by the sudden death of her father, the Maharaja of Brindor, Queen Victoria grants her a grace-and-favor home in Hampton Court Palace. Though rumored to be haunted, Alexandrina and her lady's maid, Pooki, have no choice but to take the Queen up on her offer. Aside from the ghost sightings, Hampton Court doesn't seem so bad. The princess is soon befriended by three eccentric widows who invite her to a picnic with all the palace's inhabitants, for which Pooki bakes a pigeon pie. But General-Major Bagshot dies after eating said pie....

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I would recommend reading this instead. The narrator's lack of inflection caused me to rewind several times because the sentence didn't make sense.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Find a narrator who uses pauses, commas, question marks, etc. in their narrative audio.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She was just wooden. I couldn't determine which character was speaking often times.


    What character would you cut from The Pigeon Pie Mystery?

    The princess. She was just annoying. I didn't care if it had a happy ending or not. I got 3/4 of the way through and quit listening. I've never done that in 10 years of being an Audible member.


    Any additional comments?
