Review: Her Royal Spyness

Her Royal Spyness
Her Royal Spyness by Rhys Bowen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lady Georgiana is 30-something in the line to the throne but she’s penniless. Her father is deceased and, though her mother has remarried frequently, she does not provide for Georgie. Her brother, Binky, lets her live in the castle at Rannoch but his stingy wife, Fig, won’t let him give Georgie any money. Sick of it all, she decides to stay at their house in London – by herself. No servants, no chaperones. She makes her way alright until a dead body is found in her bathtub and Binky is the prime suspect. Along with her bold girl friend Belinda and a Scottish rogue named Darcy, Georgie attempts to find the real killer. Fun, high society/low money stuff. Katherine Kellgren handles the various voices well, especially Belinda’s seductive drawl and another character’s inability to pronounce the letter “R”. Very entertaining, even if the villain is somewhat obvious well before the ending.
