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.

I agree with a previous reviewer; the vampire stuff was rather silly. The story, however, was as good as expected - vampires not withstanding.
Story and reader. These are books that are entertaining and build to a crescendo and all with fairly happy endings.
Georgie - she's funny and sympathetic.
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.
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.
Several times while listening I would get the giggles at the silly, naivety of the main character.
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.
Say something about yourself!
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.
Yes, the characters are real, with real problems of economics, politics, and endearments.
It brought forth the morals of the time, the difficulties and a good old fashion mystery.
No, but I will not miss a one from now on.
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 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.
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.
This story used many of the known historical facts but with a twist of the storyline to make it intereting.
I have bought everyone of Rhys Bowens books to date. She keeps me entertained with her heroine. I feel like I personally know Georgiana.
Because I love the series I would be very happy to see a follow up book.
