Publisher's Summary

The Royal Spyness series continues with an all-new mystery of "the British monarchy...a wedding in Transylvania...[and] wonderful characters." (#1 New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris).

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. Now it's up to Georgie to save the nuptial festivities before the couple's vows become: to love and to cherish, till undeath do them part.

    Story
    "Campy Vampy"

    Some reviews haven't raved this one because of the mention of vampires. It didn't bother me and the introduction of Queenie more than made up for many of the less likeable parts of the story. So far probably the most humorous of the series.

    "One of my favorites of the series"

    This book is one of my favorite books in the Royal Spyness series. There is a lot of adventure & some new characters, but the best part is all the narration of the different foreign visitors. Great cozy listen!

    "Definitely doesn't disappoint."

    Another wonderful cosy mystery from this author. The narrator is fantastic. If you are looking for a cosy mystery that's funny, has great characters, amazing narration, and is generally easy to follow, look no further. This is a great series when you are not looking for something that will break your heart or your brain, but that is still interesting and fun.

    "fun, light with a hint of suspense"

    Another fun addition to this series. As usual there are a few fashion moments, quirky new characters, and a bit of danger. The narrator does a nice job with the voices.

    Story
    "Charming, but Lacks Depth"

    I'm enjoying the Royal Spyness stories, mostly because Georgie is charmingly sweet and naive, and because the narrator is one of the best I've heard. This volume is weaker than the first two, partly because of the silly vampire element. Does every story need to have an obligatory vampire somewhere, even one like this, which otherwise isn't even a little supernatural?

    Other than that, it's getting a little silly that no matter where in the world she goes, Darcy shows up just in time to save her. I'm willing to forgive that, though, because he's dreamy, and I love how Kellgren does his voice.

    I think, though, that one of my main problems is Sigfried. I get that Georgie isn't attracted to him, but there seems to be no reason for her vehemence about it. All I've picked up is that he's got a "fish face," he brags about having no fear, and he's a little uptight. In this story, though, he seems kind and respectful, so I think he's getting a bum rap. I get that she would prefer to marry for love, but I don't get the "not if he was the last man on earth" sentiments. Seems like she could do a lot worse than a kind, respectful husband who would be ok with her finding love discreetly elsewhere.

    "Favorite Story Yet!"

    This has been my favorite story out of the series so far! A castle in Transylvania, vampires, hidden passageways,Darcy O'Mara (sigh), and murder! Another outstanding performance from Katherine Kellgren as well! There were so many characters for her to perform, and she did an outstanding job at it! Shes one of the top narrators out there, if not THE top in my opinion. If you're new to the series, I'd recommend starting from the begining, as you dont want to miss out on any of the action!
