    Story
    "Fun light mystery"
    Where does Royal Blood rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The whole series rates very high in my listening experience. A little light-hearted listening is just the thing in the middle of a long gray winter.


    Which character – as performed by Katherine Kellgren – was your favorite?

    Her characterizations are all spot on. I can see the characters as she reads. She does an excellent job with the accents and definitely adds to the enjoyability factor.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Several times while listening I would get the giggles at the silly, naivety of the main character.

    "Charming Fun"

    That's it. Charming fun. Nothing over the top, but a very nice period piece, very well performed. Rhys Bowen is very reliable. Humorous, not hilarious. Just right.

    "great series"

    I love this series. The narrator is great. The stories are fun and entertaining. Also even though they aren't exactly historically correct, they do tie into the events of this period in history.

    I have been a member of Audible since the mid 90's. I love the format and have listened to hundreds of books. With the new I-Phone version, I can take my stories everywhere with me. Thank you so much for this great service.

    Story
    "A Fun Historical Mystery!"
    Would you listen to Royal Blood again? Why?

    Yes, the characters are real, with real problems of economics, politics, and endearments.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It brought forth the morals of the time, the difficulties and a good old fashion mystery.


    Have you listened to any of Katherine Kellgren’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I will not miss a one from now on.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed, can not remember crying, but could not stop listening. You become so involved in the tale, and you just want to keep up with the characters. Therefore I listened to all of them. Great while preparing to sleep and charming to lazily spend an afternoon with.

    "I love this series!"

    I so enjoy these books. It's just the right balance of mystery, humor and a little romance. They are not exactly light reads but, easy reads and just totally enjoyable. The characters are great and K. Kellgren just does a great job of bringing the characters to life. I have read them all and can't wait for the next. Hope her more serious series comes to audible and hope it's just as good.

    "Delightful!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a wonderful read by an extremely talented voice actress. Her narration adn characters each have their own voice. The story is a great blend of humor, history, romance and mystery - all rolled into one fun plot. There are five books in this series and I hope more will come - both from the author and then the voice actress.

    "Entertaining and light."
    What did you like best about this story?

    This story used many of the known historical facts but with a twist of the storyline to make it intereting.

    Story
    "Enchanted by the Royals"
    Would you try another book from Rhys Bowen and/or Katherine Kellgren?

    I have bought everyone of Rhys Bowens books to date. She keeps me entertained with her heroine. I feel like I personally know Georgiana.


    Do you think Royal Blood needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Because I love the series I would be very happy to see a follow up book.

    Story
    "always a fun read"
    Would you listen to Royal Blood again? Why?

    no, because I usually don't re-read books


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Royal Blood?

    Always with Darcy


    What about Katherine Kellgren’s performance did you like?

    great. Sometimes her accents get jumbled, but I am learning all of the characters by her impersonation.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no
