Publisher's Summary

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 love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    Story
    "Listen for the sheer fun of Rhys Bowen's books!"

    Rhys Bowen is one of the grand dames of modern British literature, and she is a treasure! Katherine Kellgren is easily among the best narrators of audiobooks. When there two ladies work together on a light and fun Royal Spyness murder mystery, as they have 10 times, the result is always magical and fun. Lady Georgiana Rannoch (Georgie), a distant but favorite relative of the queen, is not a detective by trade but her detective work is stellar which is a good thing because she finds a lot of dead bodies.

    All of Rhys Bowen's characters are so vivid that they jump from the page. The Royal Spyness recurring characters include the perpetually penniless Georgie, her wonderful commoner granddad, her lazy but lovable and mouthy maid, her useless brother who inherited the family castle and fortune, her bitchy and self centered sister-in-law, her on and off commoner Irish boyfriend who likely works for a British intelligence agency, and her slutty best friend. And the Queen of England, of course.

    "Favorite Story Yet!"

    This has been my favorite story out of the series so far! A castle in Transylvania, vampires, hidden passageways,Darcy O'Mara (sigh), and murder! Another outstanding performance from Katherine Kellgren as well! There were so many characters for her to perform, and she did an outstanding job at it! Shes one of the top narrators out there, if not THE top in my opinion. If you're new to the series, I'd recommend starting from the begining, as you dont want to miss out on any of the action!

    "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!
