Heirs and Graces by Rhys Bowen

                                                               Heirs and Graces

I am a big fan of this series and this book, book 7 did not disappoint. Lady Georgiana Rannoch(Georgie) has been asked to help her cousin the Queen in a little matter that will require all that she learned in finishing school in Switzerland . The Duchess of Eynsford badly needs someone to come and whip some manners and poise into her farmer grandson Jack who is coming to England from Australia to become the new Duke as the current Duke remains unmarried and without children. Jack has a lot to unwillingly learn before becoming Duke so Georgie has her hands full with this charming young man.
The characters in this series are wonderful and the narrator Katherine Kellgren did a wonderful job of making each character really come alive .
This book had me laughing on many occasions and smiling away to myself during the listening of it. There is a lot of humour in the story/series and it is great fun to read/listen to.
The one character I could not warm to at all was the horrid Cedric, the current Duke...ohhh he is a horrible character with a soul as dark as night, I was glad to see the back of him!
Darcy, Georgie's love interest I was glad to see was back in this story.. their romance is very cute and great fun to read about. I am hoping for a glamorous wedding at some point in the series with these two!
To sum up this was a wonderful read and it has me eager for book 8, Georgiana is a wonderful main character and it is great fun to read about all the adventures she gets up to . This is a fun and ladylike cozy mystery series! Go get it!!
