rb Royal spyness

First in the Series.

This is one of the most delightful and fun historical mysteries out.  Laugh out loud funny.

Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie, 34th in line for the throne, is flat broke.  And escapes to London from the families Scottish seat, so as to not be married off to a foreign prince…aptly dubbed ‘Fishface’.

Having to find work is not going to be an easy task, as she has never had to do any work in all of her 21 years.

Sacked from Harrods after a couple of hours (due to her multi-married mother).  Learned to build a fire in the hearth.  Fallen for an absolutely unsuitable Irish peer.  Made a few quid housekeeping incognita, and has been summoned by the Queen to spy on her playboy son.

Then to top everything off, finds a horrible French man who is trying to steal the family estate, dead in her bath tub.  And her brother the Duke is accused of murder.

Now she has to clear her brother and their very old family name.

Loved this highly funny historical mystery.  And look forward to reading more of Georgie’s adventures.

With a good set of characters, in a well plotted and written mystery.

5 Stars*****
