    I really enjoy genre fiction, mostly fantasy and mysteries but enjoy discovering new authors.

    "A little predictable"

    I love this series and this book is very good but I took one star off because there is some very cliche vampire stuff. Not a huge part of the book but enough to be just a little distracting. In general though, I love Lady Georgie. There is just enough scene setting to establish a very charming version of Europe in the late 30's and each character is distinct and interesting. The mysteries aren't all that challenging or complicated but I don't mind.

    "Rhys Bowen hits another one out of the park!"

    If you enjoy a historically based novel, have a background knowledge of the English royal family, enjoy a strong female character, like mysteries, & enjoy twisted humour - then you will love this series. There is a bit of romance, but it doesn't overshadow the storyline. The reader does a great job depicting the cast of characters. Would love to hear more by this author.

    "Performance is key!"

    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.

    "Very enjoyable"

    This was lots of fun as well as a good puzzle. I am just disappointed that there seem to be only four Royal Blood stories. Since I use audio books as a sleep aid, this book and the rest in the series are perfect for my purposes. They are not so grizzly as to keep me awake, but still keep my interest so that I can hardly wait to get back to listening.

    "Always good fun"

    This is one of the series I thoroughly enjoy and is a new staple for me. Always delivers humorous fun. Very good reader, stories are fluffy but you know that before you buy the book. Entertainment value is solid.

    "Light but entertaining"

    It is a very light mystery story but I found it entertaining. I will look for other books narrated by Katherine Kellgren, I enjoyed her performance.
