Never, never buy a book narrated by the author. I would rather they pay the price for one excellent narrator than several mediocre ones. An excellent narrator is an artist while the others just speak or overact.
Could not get through even to the fourth chapter.
I enjoyed Her Royal Spyness so much that I referred the series to my friends and family.
In the second book, A Royal Pain, I was so disappointed with the German Princess Character that I almost did not get book number three. Do yourself a favor, skip this book and go on to book three. This was just as enjoyable as one. I think I have found a new series to follow (as long as a book two is not repeated).
Yes, I thought that book number one was a fluke and was not going to continue with the series. I am so glad I did. Now getting number four.
She is brilliant and I will follow her as a narrator
Yes, I could see this series being on TV. Everyone loves the Royals. But please no more mistakes like A Royal Pain.
All several characters seemed to do throughout the whole book was to whine. It made their dialogue very boring. Marino's character, whom you started out being sympathetic with in earlier books, is now weak and pathetic. Every time he came back, I groaned and just wanted to rush right through it. You don't like any of the characters left in the book anymore.
The murders are now being described for several pages and are much too graphic. They have left the scientific and now are going for shock value.
I usually leave the books on my ipod to enjoy another time. The Book of the Dead will be the first I have ever taken off.
Maybe it's well past the time to keep the series going.
I have read all the Diana Gabaldon " Outlander" series and I can see I am going to be hooked on what I hope to be just as excellant a series. I fell in love with the characters in Julia and Mr. Brisbane. The Chemistry between them is charged with electricity and I cannot wait until the next book. Well Done Deanna! P.S. Please hurry
