Bowen, the Agatha winner responsible for the popular Molly Murphy series, has come up with another winner in her new heroine, Lady Georgina, the least important member of the royal family. Thirty-fourth in the line of succession, Georgie may have the title but none of the money. What's a girl to do? Well, in Georgie's case, she tries opening her own domestic agency, with herself as the only domestic. Even her brother, Binky, the duke, is barely holding on to the family castle in Scotland, and that hold becomes tenuous when a French rogue claims to have proof that Binky and Georgie's father gambled the homestead away before his suicide. So, when the Frenchie winds up drowned in the bathroom of Binky's Belgrave house, there's reason to worry. After Binky's arrest, Georgie feels it's up to her to find the real murderer, but soon she finds her own life threatened, repeatedly. The mystery jigs and jags, but the best part here is Bowen's evocation of 1930s England. Drawing on Georgie's diary entries, she vividly portrays what daily life between the wars was like for a modern young woman bumping up against tradition. Populated with lots of neatly delineated characters, including Mrs. Simpson and a sexy Irish lord attempting to help Georgie lose her burdensome virginity, this is a smashing romp.

Fun read. It pulled me in quickly and I like this character - spunky. Interesting with the royal connection - especially the Mrs. Simpson / the Queen aspect. I would enjoy reading another one.

Journal Entry 13 by locker-monster at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Saturday, June 08, 2019
Picked up this book at the Calgary BookCrossing June meet-up. Sounds like a fun cozy.

Journal Entry 14 by locker-monster at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Friday, July 12, 2019
For a book called "Her Royal Spyness", there's not a lot of spying that goes on. I was expecting a story with the usual spy intrigue, but it's more a standard mystery with a teeny bit of spying at the end. Oh well, it was still a fun read. I might even care enough to check out the rest of the series.

Cute little cozy mystery about a 34 in line to the throne and her money making schemes to live. Of course without anyone knowing she is poor! Enjoyed reading on Gabriola island.
