Brilliant!

Thoroughly enjoyable! An intriguing story, well written. The characters and scenarios are all well described and it is easy to lose yourself in the world of 1930s upstairs/downstairs. I so hope there will be another one as I am intrigued to see how Louisa's life unfolds....

Book 3

Personally I don't think this is as good as the first two but it won't stop me from buying the next one. What makes it good is that it is based on real people even though the storyline is made up. I love how i can get invested in these people's lives and the mystery's that they solve along the way. I would definitely recommend this series but start from book one then you have all the back story.

Brilliant

I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to the Mitford trilogy and sad that there are no more. Rachel Atkins is a fantastic narrator and brought the stories to life.

Love this series

These books are excellent. Jessica Fellows captures your imagination with an excellent story set in the glamorous era of the Mitfords. The detail and writing is wonderful and keeps you engaged for hours. More please Jessica.

Not bad at all!

I stupidly started listening to the "Mitford" series of books on this one, for me, it was a slow starter then as things progressed I couldn't stop listening. Enjoyed it, now to download the others to start listening from the start!
