If you could sum up The Poyson Garden in three words, what would they be?
Exciting, Educational, Provocative
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Poyson Garden?
There are several, but I love the end where just as she feels that all is lost, her beloved friends and supporters come to bend down before her and declare her the Queen.
Have you listened to any of Katherine Kellgren’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, she is absolutely my favorite performer. I began reading Her Royal Spyness novels last year and was extremely sad to finish all of the current books in the series. This year I was looking for a Christmas book and read The Queen's Christmas. I look forward to the rest of the books in this series, mainly because of Katherine Kellgren.
Who was the most memorable character of The Poyson Garden and why?
Every character is memorable, but aside from the Queen, I loved Ned Topside. He is an unlikely ally, but shows throughout the book how his many talents can be used to help the Privy Council. Also, he is not afraid to tease the Queen or say what he thinks.

Katherine Kellgren is my favorite narrator. When I am looking for a new book to listen to, I often check out her work. I love how Katherine brings the characters to life with her different accents so I can visualize each person as they speak. It is because of Ms. Kellgren that I discovered this series by Karen Harper. I really like historical fiction, so this seemed like a good fit.
Queen Elizabeth I is very spunky and resourceful in this book. She is not queen when the book begins, but as a plot to kill her is thwarted, she becomes queen by the end. There were some steamy parts that I could have done without, but they did not get explicit.
Now I want to listen to book 2.
