Publisher's Summary

Nothing is simple when you're 35th in line for the British crown, least of all marriage. But with love on their side and plans to elope, Lady Georgiana Rannoch and her beau, Darcy O'Mara, hope to bypass a few royal rules....
With Darcy driving me out of London in a borrowed motorcar, I soon discover that he isn't planning to introduce me to the pleasures of sinning in secret - as I had hoped - but to make me his wife! Of course there are some quibbles to be dealt with, such as my needing special permission from the king to marry a Roman Catholic and the question of where we might live after the honeymoon. Though he will inherit a title, Darcy is as broke as I am. Even his family's Irish castle has been sold to a rich American who now employs Darcy's father as a hired hand.
Throwing these cares to the wind, nothing could deter us from our mission - except perhaps the news that my future father-in-law has just been arrested. It seems the rich American was murdered, and Darcy's father had more than enough motive to do the deed. With the elopement postponed, we head for Ireland, where he insists he's innocent, and it's up to us to prove it - for better or worse.

No, it looks like he isn't! Thank goodness!

Most of you will have no idea what that headline was all about. Sorry about that:
It is the answer to the question I asked in the headline to my review of "Malice at the Palace":
"Is Darcy becoming another Daniel Sullivan?". Basically I was all ranting about how Darcy had started to show some very annoying old-fashioned tendencies (just like Sullivan) was being overprotective and mostly absent, and how the wole relationship between Darcy and Georgie was going nowhere and had become boring and superfluous ...

So, now I'm happy to say that this novel basically was more than I could have hoped for! No really: all I had been ranting about has changed. Well, not completely maybe, but finally Georgie and Darcy are working well together, both as a couple AND as detectives, Queeny is less of a pain in the *** and we even get to know more about Darcy and his family. Brilliant!

Thank you Mrs Bowen. In case you ever read this: You really really made my day!!

Delightful book

I love this series because it's different, charming, and funny. It's not the run of the mill mystery/love story. The story is really good and I love the characters.

Another fun royal shyness mystery

This is a great listen. The narrator brings all the characters to life and having listened to so many now - they all feel like part of the family. Can't wait for another ........will Darcy and Georgie finally make it to the alter? I am buying a hat Jin readiness and just in case!

Any additional comments?

This is the most satisfying book in the series so far. The story was engrossing and the characters were delightful. Quite a few on-going problems in Georgiana's life have also been solved. Well done.

What did you like best about Crowned and Dangerous? What did you like least?

Unfortunately the bad outweighed the good. The new family characters did not ring true for me, and seemed to almost be caricatures (the "randy" uncle, Darcy's repugnant father just 2 examples). Story dragged, then was rushed into a finish.

What will your next listen be?

Not sure.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Katherine Kellgren?

I'm trying one of the earlier books in the series which I've read in hard copy, to see how she "dramatises" it.

Was Crowned and Dangerous worth the listening time?

Not really. I found myself just wishing it would hurry up and finish!

Any additional comments?

Definitely not up to the very entertaining standard of the earlier books in the series.
