Her Royal Spyness
1 journaler for this copy...
The Agatha Award winner debuts a 1930s London mystery series, featuring a penniless twenty-something member of the extended royal family.
Her ridiculously long name is Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie, daughter to the Duke of Atholt and Rannoch. And she is flat broke. As the thirty-fourth in line for the throne, she has been taught only a few things, among them, the perfect curtsey. But when her brother cuts off her allowance, she leaves Scotland, and her fiancŽ Fish-Face, for London, where she has:
a) worked behind a cosmetics counter-and gotten sacked after five hours b) started to fall for a quite unsuitable minor royal c) made some money housekeeping (incognita, of course), and d) been summoned by the Queen to spy on her playboy son.
Then an arrogant Frenchman, who wants her family's 800-year-old estate for himself, winds up dead in her bathtub. Now her most important job is to clear her very long family name.
My Review: This book was a lot of fun! I don't usually read historical novels, but this one has such a fun main character heroine with Lady Georgianna Rannoch. I already requested the next book from the library.
The local library in Woodstock, Georgia was giving away this library copy and I couldn't resist picking it up since I have wanted to read this series for awhile.
WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Left at the Little Free Library on the Noonday Creek Trailhead in Downtown Woodstock. This box is nice and full of books right now. Enjoy the book!
