Publisher's Summary

A Royal Spyness mystery starring Lady Georgiana, 34th in line for the throne - and the mystery world's favorite penniless heiress.

With its posh clientele in the country for the summer, Georgie's housecleaning business has fizzled. So she tries hiring herself out as a dinner and theatre companion. But her first client has quite the wrong idea.

To avoid further scandal, Georgie's shipped home to Castle Rannoch, where her summer plans include honoring a promise to Her Majesty to keep Castle Rannoch's divorced houseguest from seducing the Prince of Wales. She's also been coerced into helping Scotland Yard with a top-secret mission - namely keeping an eye on the shooting party at Balmoral and preventing someone from shooting the Prince. And Georgie must manage all this without strangling her odious sister-in-law Fig or spineless brother Binky.

What the Critics Say

"Katherine Kellgren is completely winning as guileless, gullible, plucky Georgie. With the castle overrun by visitors - including the notorious American Mrs. Wallis Simpson; her paramour, the Prince of Wales; and an assortment of gentry and staff - Kellgren shifts accents and attitudes with ease. Phryne Fisher fans will love Kellgren’s Lady Georgiana." (AudioFile)

    Story
    "A Cheap Novel"

    I can't say the book is "bad", just pretty poorly written in my opinion. I'm assuming it's part of series because it refers back to things not in this book that apparently a reader should already know.

    The main gist of the story makes little sense. Why would someone ask the main character to become involved? And the main character is told not to tell her role to anyone yet she seems to broadcast it to just about everyone.

    A bit entertaining but certainly not much literary value.

    "Brittish Fun"
    What made the experience of listening to Royal Flush the most enjoyable?

    Story is brought to life with Brittish accents. Easy to listen & enjoyable. Sometimes the voice gives an annoying voice to a character but overall a fun listen!


    Did Katherine Kellgren do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Overall, good job.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listen while driving but I have been tempted to sit in the car just to enjoy the voices in the story.

    "Fun and Flippant Story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Royal Flush to be better than the print version?

    Yes probably, as the performances are outstanding, real storytelling at its best.


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

    Too many to choose just one. Just knowing there are more installments and continued look inside the mind and liives of one crazy group of characters is really something to look forward to.


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

    Yes, "Her Royal Spyness"


    Any additional comments?

    Light and fun, I listen to these great story tellers while I work or work-out and often find myself smiling at one scene after another.
    Helps to lighten even the most dreary chores. As I listen the time slips away.
    These are fun stories, very well performed, they make me smile, how much better can a story get?

    "Fun"

    The Royal Spyness series is very fun from start to finish. The situations Georgie gets into are quite fun when you think of what a "Lady" is supposed to be like.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Royal Flush to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version but the narrator is excellent and rarely misses on her character voices.


    What does Katherine Kellgren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her character voices.

    "Light and Breezy"

    This installment of the Lady Georgie books takes place mostly in Scotland and the narrator, Katherine Kellgren, does a fabulous job with all the accents. Her characters are distinct and you always know who's talking. The mystery itself was good, although I'm still not entirely sure why the culprit did it. I think I've become a bit addicted to these stories with their interesting view of this time period.

    "happy listening!"

    This book, and indeed the entire series, is just plain fun and enjoyment. The books are lighthearted but interesting, with great characters and wonderful plots. The narration is "spot on." The books are just right for a summer listening session or for any time that amusing, light stories are what you crave.
