    "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!

    "So far my favorite from the series"

    This is such a FUN listen series, you have got to get it if you are in the mood to kick back and listen to some awesome, talented voice talents and some mystery, mixed with humor, love, suspense and well british humor. GET the series, you won't regret it. This is one is far my favorite, due to very colorful characters and the the talent of the narrator. You will laugh out loud and identify with the characters!!!

    "Best so far, a good laugh"

    I laughed while listening. These stories are good fun and I found this one the best so far. While predictable (eg Darcy & Belinda arrive) the story romps along. The author has tongue in cheek I'm sure.

    "Gotta love Georgie!"

    The best and most spine tingling mystery of the series so far. If you like the ambiance of P.G. Wodehouse and the mysteries of Nancy Atherton's Aunt Dimity series this one's for you.

    "I would pay to have "Queenie" removed from series"

    Queenie--Lady Georgie's so called maid is the Most Annoying character in any book I have listened to. Her character adds nothing to the series and I find myself fast forwarding thru her parts. Nobody would put up with such an incompetent servant. Normally a character who is portrayed as "flawed" has some redeeming qualities--unfortunately this one has none.

    This book and all of the future books would be greatly enhanced with the removal of this Odious, Incompetent and Annoying creature!

    "Royal Blood"

    The narration was entertaining and added to the atmosphere. These should be read in order for better understanding of references.

    "Vampires...?"

    As always, I enjoyed another great Georgiana adventure. In this edition she is to represent the Royal family by attending a wedding of the Prince of Transylvania, at a family castle in Transylvania. Hilarity ensues when she is, at the last minute, indentured with a maid who is anything but cultured or proficient. Upon her arrival, after a long journey fraught with strange events, she is to find out that her presence there may not be by chance or simple representation. A fun romp with some of the reoccurring characters, in a spooky old castle, cut off from civilization. Imaginations are heightened and running rampant, after the death of one of the guests, that may or may not have been murder. Katherine Kellgren does a fantastic job as Georgiana and takes all the characters on an exciting ride.
