Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Mystery, 2014
As 35th in line for the throne, Lady Georgiana Rannoch may not be the most sophisticated young woman, but she knows her table manners. It's forks on the left, knives on the right - not in His Majesty's back....
"Here I am thinking the education I received at my posh Swiss finishing school would never come in handy. And while it hasn't landed me a job, or a husband, it has convinced Her Majesty the Queen and the Dowager Duchess to enlist my help. I have been entrusted with grooming Jack Altringham - the Duke's newly discovered heir fresh from the Outback of Australia - for high society. The upside is I am to live in luxury at one of England's most gorgeous stately homes. But upon arrival at Kingsdowne Place, my dearest Darcy has been sent to fetch Jack, leaving me stuck in a manor full of miscreants...none of whom are too pleased with the discovery of my new ward. And no sooner has the lad been retrieved than the Duke announces he wants to choose his own heir. With the house in a hubbub over the news, Jack's hunting knife somehow finds its way into the Duke's back. Eyes fall, backs turn, and fingers point to the young heir. As if the rascal wasn't enough of a handful, now he's suspected of murder. Jack may be wild, but I'd bet the crown jewels it wasn't he who killed the Duke...."

I found it quite tedious

It was ok but just dragged. It wasn't the worst in the world but not something I would want to listen to again.

Not as good as it should have been

What did you like best about Heirs and Graces? What did you like least?

I hated the ending, pretty disgraceful to be honest.


If you’ve listened to books by Rhys Bowen before, how does this one compare?

Not as good as earlier ones.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

I am getting more than a little tired of the over hysterical narration. It has been getting steadily worse over the series.


If this book were a film would you go see it?

No.


Any additional comments?

I am wondering if Rhys is finding her character a little jaded, perhaps a rest might not be a bad idea.
