I bought this 1996 paperback last week at the big used book sale put on by the Federation of Women. I read it years ago (before bookcrossing), and gave it away. I'm looking forward to reading it again.

Story about a Canadian girl who works at Buck House as a maid, and how the Queen gets her to solve the mysterious death of one of the footmen. Kind of interesting, but a bit convoluted (like a game of Cludo without the board) and it gets a bit lame at the end. Falls into my 'harmeless entertainment' category.

I've seen this one passed around the Waterloo meetup a couple of times.
It's now my turn to read it! :)

Jane Bee did a whirlwind trip of Europe until she found herself in London, England broke with no way to return back home to Canada. Her great aunt helped her find a position at Buckingham Palace where Jane works as a housemaid. When Jane rushes to find out the source of a loud gasp, Jane finds the Queen literally stumbling over the dead body of Jane's friend Robin. The Queen enlists the help of Jane to find out if this was suicide or if it was murder.

It was nice to read a book where the main character is a Canadian. It's not often characters are Canadian and talk about their heritage. I'm not big on cozy mysteries, so that could be why I found this book didn't do a great job of grabbing my attention. I found it kind of slow, but I did manage to get through the whole thing so it wasn't necessarily dull. That being said, I won't be reading anymore in the series.

Not very entertaining. I nearly gave up but managed to hang on to the end - I think it was all a bit goofy, trying too hard to be funny. I usually enjoy a cosy mystery but this one didn't keep my attention.
