    Description

    The national best-selling author of Royal Blood whisks her heroine away to the French Riviera for fun-and danger.

    Lady Georgiana Rannoch has once again been called into service by Her Majesty the Queen. This time she's sent to Nice on a secret assignment that's nothing to sneeze at: recover the Queen's stolen snuff box.

    As much of an honor as it is to be trusted by Her Majesty, an even greater honor awaits Georgie in Nice - as Coco Chanel herself asks Georgie to model her latest fashion. But when a necklace belonging to the Queen is stolen on the catwalk, Georgie has to find two priceless items - and solve a murder. How's a girl to find any time to go to the casino?

    Commentaires

    “Katherine Kellgren's performance encompasses an astonishing range of personalities while remaining true to her impoverished sleuth's impeccable enunciation…Kellgren, undaunted by the burgeoning cast of characters, supplies plenty of distinctive accents and jaunty tones. The delighted listener wants the story to go on and on.” ( Audiofile)
    "Fans of Peter Lovesey''s hilarious books transforming the future Edward VII into an unlikely sleuth will relish Bowen''s whimsical fifth Royal Spyness mystery starring Lady Georgiana Rannoch, 34th in line to the British thrown (after 2010''s Royal Blood). Bowen successfully melds a whodunit with comedy as few contemporary writers can." ( Publishers Weekly, starred review)
    "The best part of this delicious series is the cast of characters (well known and otherwise), led, of course, by the level-headed and stiff- upper-lipped Georgiana, who tackles whatever is in front of her, be it murder or romance, with uncommon relish. A royal romp." ( Booklist)

    My Fav in The Series

    I love the story and setting. I have listened to the series multiple times - even though the last few books can get repetitive.

    But I find this one to be the one I come back to again and again the most.

    I do find some holes in the story to be honest. But I have to take this for what it is - a cosy mystery. But has anyone noticed the inspector needs a translator to communicate with the butler but towards the end that has become irrelevant? I think the author needs a better editor to catch this out. It can be annoying.

    As for Katherine Kellgren, there is no better narrator than her. Anyone who thinks she is shouting needs to sit down. She is the best narrator on Audible. Nobody else can be so many characters at once and make them all sound so unique but her.

    Murder mystery for the delicately nurtured

    A murder mystery for the delicately nurtured, or those who merely wish to escape the daily grind and grittiness. In the Miss Marple genre, but with a heroine who has youthful, girlish exuberance and the patina of royalty. This is the latest delightful instalment in this lighthearted series, which never fails to provide enough plot twists and surprises, to keep the listener engaged. Perfect for an overnight transatlantic flight or for cheering up time spent dreary waiting rooms.

    Superb

    This audiobook is a perfect confluence of author and narrator. It is a hilarious book with a mystery plot and many excellent lines from various characters. The author's previous books in this series were funny, but had weak mystery plots. This book has both excellent characters and plot. The narrator does an absolutely perfect French accent, adding immensely to the listening pleasure. I was a bit leery that the author had included famous people as characters in her book, but she nails them in the book. They are portrayed very accurately and well.

    This is the sort of book that lingers in the listener's mind for a long time and with pleasure. I recommend this book for hours of delight.

    Lots of good fun

    This was a great easy read. Lots of fun and well done. The books are easy to figure out but there are always some nice things added in and the characters are funny and light hearted. Georgie is getting more clever and it would be nice to actually have her figure it out before she gets herself in a pickle. Having said that though, there are lots of adventures, parties and interesting (and often shallow) people. The narrator is enjoyable. Ms Bowen is good at coming up with interesting ideas and is entertaining. If you are interested in an easy fun time, this is a book you will enjoy. Funny characters and lots of bridget jonesque girl fun with a good accent.

    The perfect ending to the series"

    Where does Naughty in Nice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very high up I would say in the top 75%

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

    I just could not figure out who the murderer was...I suspected everyone except the real culprit.

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

    She is very good. I would say as good as she always is.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really. a book is a book.

    Any additional comments?

    Georgiana in Nice...with Coco Chanel and her mother...what else could you ask for.

    One of my favorite series!

    STORY - (fun mystery) OMG, I just love these books! The mysteries are cleverly complicated, the characters are wonderful and it's all intertwined with just plain fun. Georgiana, the main character, is 35th in line to the throne of England, but the story is set during the depression and she is penniless. She survives through the help of friends, her own cleverness, and spying for the Queen. In this book she is sent to Nice, France to quietly recover (steal back) a snuff box that was stolen from the Queen.

    Seems like all the zany main characters end up in Nice as well, and Georgie ends up in another of her many predicaments. I enjoyed this book immensely from beginning to end. It is an easy listen but will keep you guessing about many mysterious things that pop up along the way, and you will likely laugh out loud at Georgie's antics and those of her friends.

    PERFORMANCE - Katherine Kellgren reads this book. Her work is always amazing, and this is no exception. If you listen to the sample, you will learn that some of the characters are kind of "overdone," like the snobby British royalty and Georgie's promiscuous best friend Belinda, but IMHO that just adds to the delightfulness of the story and the performance.

    OVERALL - There is no cursing in this book. As far as sex, there are mentions of passion and Georgie is chased around a yacht by its fat, amorous owner, but nothing else. There are a couple killings, but they just create mystery and are not gory. Each book in this series stands alone, but the slow-moving romance between Georgie and Darcy grows a little bit with each book. Darn it, I want them to get together!!! Highly, highly, highly recommended for girls of all ages, maybe not so much for guys because of all the girly fun.

    Such a delight

    I enjoy this series so much and this book in partuclar because the getting-repetitive love interest figures very little. However, Coco Chanel and the often absent mother are nice additions. The main character, who is a minor and penniless royal, is sent by the Queen of England to the French Riviera to quietly retrieve stolen item of her majesty's. Of course it's never as simple as it starts out. The mystery is challenging, yet not too dour or dark in tone. The author does a good blancing act in this respect. The setting is well described and lively. The reader is top notch and I enjoy every word and detail.

    It's simply a fun and clever escape!

    I picked this up because I felt like I needed a break. Every Royal Spyness novel is light, funny, engaging and educational. I always find myself smiling while listening to Rhys Bowen novels.

    Love Georgie!

    Georgie is the best friend you turn to when you need cheering up. I enjoy the audible books because the narrator puts so much energy into her reading. She is having fun. And I always have fun listening to her.

    Perfect antidote for midwinter blues

    These books are an unalloyed delight! The author gets right up to the edge of cloying and frivolous but never goes over the line. There is an underlying intelligence in Georgie that, along with her ebullient good cheer, makes her irresistible. And can we talk about Katherine Kellgren? Her mastery of all the accents, each one distinct and recognizable, is genius. No one should ever read these books when this brilliant narration is available to make it doubly enjoyable.

    🙄

    Französischer Akzent, wenn ein Franzose Englisch spricht, schön und gut. Aber wenn die Sprache gerade Französisch ist, ergibt es absolut keinen Sinn. Noch dazu strapaziert es die Ohren ohne Ende, vor allem, wenn gerade hitzige Diskusdionen mit einem sturköpfig-stupidem französischem Inspektor geführt werden und Georgie nicht wie gewohnt in ihrer charmant-distinguierten Art erzählt, was passiert.
    Die Geschichte selbst ist gut, wieder mit geschichtlichen Schmankerln garniert und äußerst spannend. Und die historischen Personen sind auch interessant 😉
    Anstrengend zu hören, aber gut.
    Nebenbei bemerkt habe ich zwischendurch Hercule Poirot "Der blaue Express" gesehen und konnte mir von der Szenerie im Hörbuch ein gutes Bild machen. Interessanterweise ist nicht nur das Transportmittel gleich, die Villa trägt den gleichen Namen und auch im Film wohnt dort eine lebenslustige Mutter mit ihrer Tochter.... 😁
