Rhys Bowen – Her Royal Spyness


Agatha Award-winning author Rhys Bowens charming combination of intrigue and romance blended with a touch of humor shines when performed by Audible Hall of Fame narrator Katherine Kellgren, whose deft range and impeccable accent work make it hard to believe this isnt a multicast performance.

In this irresistible cozy set in 1930s London, Rhys Bowen introduces the lively Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenieor “Georgie” for short. Despite standing 34th in line for the throne and occasionally having tea with (and spying for!) Her Majesty the Queen, Georgie is penniless and down-on-her-luck. And just when it seems things might be looking up, she finds a body in her bathtub.

Listeners are sure to be hooked on this royally enjoyable seriesand luckily for them, the collaboration between author and narrator only gets richer over the course of 12 books.

I actually purchased this to listen with my wife. What a pleasant surprise! Best of all I’m hooked on a series with plenty of novels to go.

The story is of a clever, beautiful, poor yet still royal woman having to disgrace her position by working. It leads to a myriad of humorous scenes, all of which overshadow the actual mystery.

Katherine Kellgren does a wonderful job reading a variety of characters.
