Narrator Katherine Kellgren’s enthusiastic energy is a fine match for the farcical tone of this fifth installment in the Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place series. Governess Penelope Lumley tries to unravel the curse that makes her employer, Fredrick Ashton, howl at every full moon—and she needs to solve the problem before his baby is born to the same fate. Kellgren captures Penelope’s fretful yet stalwart manner as she tries to care for Lord Ashton’s wards, tricks his wife into believing a hotel in Brighton is a ship headed to Italy, and realizes she’s in love with her friend Simon. Moving between accents with ease, Kellgren creates distinct voices that heighten the madcap energy of the plot. Pure fun.
