Publisher's Summary

Does one need four fully-grown foxgloves for decorating a dinner table for six guests? Or is it six foxgloves to kill four fully-grown guests? Sophronia's first year at school has certainly been rousing. First, her finishing school is training her to be a spy. (Won't Mumsy be surprised!) Secondly, she gets mixed up in an intrigue over a stolen device and has a cheese pie thrown at her. Now, as Sophronia sneaks around the dirigible school, eavesdropping on the teachers' quarters and making clandestine climbs to the ship's boiler room, she learns that there may be more to a school trip to London than at first appears....
Vampires, werewolves, and humans are all after the prototype Sophronia recovered in Etiquette & Espionage, which has the potential to alter human and supernatural travel. Sophronia must try to uncover who is behind a dangerous plot to control the well as survive the London season with a full dance card.

Getting better and better

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would. It is just so much fun!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Curtsies and Conspiracies?

I just finished it, so it is all in my memory and hard to pick the favourite moment, although I like the girl's take on "dandy look"

What does Moira Quirk bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

She is excellent reader for the story. Does great voices both female and male and has that energy in her performance which fits the books exactly. After 1st book I could hear her reading it when I got the second. She is that good :-D

Any additional comments?

This is no.2 in series and I can not wait for the third! I allready read it when it came up printed, but would love if the audio version was out on UK audible together with the book. I would still buy the printed version as it is "one of those books" but I have much less time to read and the hill of books is huge on waiting pile. Being able to listen to it makes it 1 or 2 days of great enjoyment straight away.
