What did you love best about A Rather Lovely Inheritance?
Story, interaction of characters, dialog, narration -- couldn't pick just one!
Who was your favorite character and why?
Penny & Jeremy (both!)
What does Katherine Kellgren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
passion, keeps your interest, makes the story & characters come to life!
If you could take any character from A Rather Lovely Inheritance out to dinner, who would it be and why?
Aunt Penelope (although she is dead in the story) -- fascination conversation
Any additional comments?
For those who like sex, sex, sex and foul language dripping for the pages, this book is not for you. For those who like mystery and subtle romance (thereby engaging the imagination), this book just might be for you! Plus, you will not be embarrassed if your children are around while you listen to this. A very important plus for me!

I am always on the lookout for a new Cozy Mystery Series.
I am huge fan of the Royal Spyness series and the Molly Murphy series (both by Rhys Bowen) and I am looking for more of the same. I thought I hit the jackpot with the Very English Mysteries series, but it turns out that one only contains 2 instalments.
I just want to sit back and enjoy a light read that doesn’t make me roll my eyes in disgust because it’s just insipid, cliché, trite fluff. I’m not looking for literature nor a meaty story to sink my teeth into, I just want to be entertained. I define cozy mysteries as something light and fun that never disintegrates into to stupidity… I don’t know if that makes sense to anyone not in my head.
I think the “Rather Series” might turn out to be a good find! I liked the characters, the story was interesting, there was a bit of humour that made me smile, the romance was predictable yet didn’t get on my nerves… I’m up for more. The series is up to 4 books (so far?) so I’ll have lots more to enjoy.
Best for all is that it was narrated by Katherine Kellgren who also narrates the Royal Spyness series. I think she really adds a lot to the tone of the story; she’s quite outstanding.

Katherine Kellgren is an excellent reader, and the perfect voice for this piece of very enjoyable escapism. I have read other novels in this series and decided that this is an author who is better listened to than read - Kellgren's lively, sometimes dry narration really lifts the prose which might otherwise be a bit cloying. But this is fluffy fun: the Riviera, art theft, an inherited house - a great antidote to grey British winter weather.
After growing use to the readers voice I found I couldn't put this book down. It was light but kept me wondering what was going to happen next. I didn't have to remember a lot of character names or facts and didn't have to continually sit on the edge of my seat for the next event to happen. I just could listen to a very well put together story and enjoy a really good book. A mystery with twists and turns and a little romance.
Please Audible get the series in I was disappointed this was the only one available.
