    "An entertaining and funny mystery"

    Another fun installment in the Lady Georgianna series. The tone was much the same as the other books in the series, a little farsical and tongue in cheek, with a healthy dose of silliness thrown in. There was a lot of Darcy in this book, and that is a plus. The vampire elements of the story were not my cup of tea, but it didn't detract much from the story. The narrator does a great job. If you are looking for a light, fun listen, this is a good one.

    "Very entertaining and great narration"

    A great listen. You can just lose yourself in the story without having to work to pay attention. The series was fun, glitzy with a good who done it plot for each installment. I am sad it is over and I hope there is more to come!

    "Another fun Royal Spyness Mystery"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It kept me guessing. I had predicted the outcome of the fist Royal Spyness Mystery, but it took me quite a while to figure out this mystery.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?


    What about Katherine Kellgren’s performance did you like?

    I always like her performance and she doesn't disappoint in this book.


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

    "Getting very tedious for me"

    This will be the last one for me, nothing new or interesting, except some of the accents were very annoying this time.

    "Formulaic ~ but Katherine makes up for it"
    Where does Royal Blood rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The entire series is my favorite so far...particularly for Katherine Kellgren's narration. She's SMASHING...I know a Lady shouldn't use such words...but....


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Predictable for the most part.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Anything with Queenie in it!

    Story
    "Somewhat Silly"

    I liked this book but Georgie's sudden belief in vampires and werewolves when she had been so practical in the first few books seems really silly to me as did her continual references to vampires. I loved her plucky spirit when in a hopeless situation. Georgie's new maid Queenie was a true bit of comic relief that I really enjoyed. Overall, I really enjoyed listening to this story.

    Katherine Kellegren was once again fantastic. Her voices for the main characters are consistent throughout the books and the voices she creates for the new characters each book are fabulous. You can always tell which character is speaking which is a big help with audio books. The inflection she uses for the narration is lively and a joy to listen to.
