    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.

    Once more, Katherine Kellgren has done a great job narrating the Royal Spyness series. I love how she's able to provide all the characters with a distinctive voice and her ability to do accents is amazing. I am not too keen about the whole 'vampire' storyline but, overall, it was fun to listen to.

    History has all but forgotten.... In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown. Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next best-selling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write. But then she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction....

    What did you like best about The Winter Sea? What did you like least?

    I couldn't get past the first few hours of the audiobook because I liked the narration the least. I was not fond of narrator's American accent for the main character. The words were rounded and sounded forced. Also, she has a mature voice and I think it required someone with a younger sounding voice.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Her English/Scottish accent was beautiful but the second main character is young and needed to be in a much higher voice.


    Was The Winter Sea worth the listening time?

    I couldn't finish listening to the audiobook but the story still seems good to me so I'm going to try to read it instead.

    Jane Hayes is a seemingly normal young New Yorker, but she has a secret. Her obsession with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, is ruining her love life: no real man can compare. But when a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-crazed women, Jane's fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become realer than she ever could have imagined.

    I loved listening to this book! The narrarator made the main character's quirky personality come through. The book itself was very lighthearted and fun. It went by way too fast!
