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…."

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

Enjoyable light murder mystery
I've really enjoyed this series. This installment wasn't my favorite, but it was nice. There was a nice twist at the end.. but, it felt like there was a long build up, but the ending was rather abrupt.
I was also cooling a bit on the romance between Georgie and Darcy. Darcy was around more, but I didn't feel the spark between them as much as I had in other books.
This series has been one of my favorites. I look forward to each installment.. but this one, seemed just a bit off the mark to me. Yes, I enjoyed it! It was just not quite as good as some of the other installments.
The narrator does a great job.
Yes, I'd recommend it, just read the installments in order.

This isn't the series to go to if you want to expand your mind. But, if you'd like a well-crafted light (and I do mean light) mystery with an easy-to-listen-to narrator, this is the one. Start at the beginning and just go through them. Once in a while this kind of book is a nice break. Be warned. It's a cupcake, not a meal.
By the way ... this is a series you can share with your mom, grandma and great aunt. It's all just good, clean fun.
The narrator, Katherine Kellgren, really needs a shout out. Her work is terrific. She makes Georgie come to life.
