1932 and Lady a Georgiana decides it's time to leave the ancestral home and try and earning a living in London. Nothing really goes to plan and is made worse when she finds a body in her bath. Who is trying to frame her or her brother for the murder and who is trying to kill her.
A good introduction to the series, well-written and with some good characters, which I look forward to reading more of in the future.

A fun (if silly) mystery that follows a minor member of the Royal family as she tries to find her way in Pre-World War II London. While there was a bit of contrivance to make the conflicts work, ultimately it was a good read and I'm looking forward to picking up the second book in this series. ( )

Trying to solve the mystery was not the most appealing part of this book. Lady Georgiana is just fun to read as she was raised to be wealthy but ends up struggling to make ends meet when she tries to live in London alone. Humorous parts included her attitude toward sister-in-law Fig, her attempts at learning to start a fire and clean a house, her relationship with her mother and even the Queen, and her clumsiness. Wonderful friend in Belinda, nice concern for her brother Binky, jury still out about what the guy Darcy is trying to accomplish as friend or potential boyfriend. ( )

I LOVE a good cosy, historical mystery, and these are a great new addition. A distant relative to royality, our heroine is still flat broke, and so, with the depression invading England,shock of shocks, she goes to work! A great story with gentle digs on class.

Reading "Her Royal Spyness" is the 1st introduction to the "Royal Spyness Series" and my 1st introduction to Rhys Bowen's novels. Simply said, "I loved it!" The story is fun and entertaining and Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie (known to friends as Georgie) is 34th in line to the British throne in 1932, and an absolute joy to meet. Georgie is feisty, smart, and her own woman even though she's not sure what she wants to do with her life. But one thing is for sure, without love she has no intention on being married off to a "suitable" candidate according to any arrangement by royal protocol.

Who would suspect that a royal could be penniless? Who would ever suspect a royal of beginning her own domestic agency for light housekeeping? This cozy has a touch of history, a touch of intrigue, a touch of romance, and a touch of humor that add up to a whimsical and charming cozy. I don't add spoilers but I'll simply comment that the last sentence is the perfect lead-in for the next intrigue in Lady Georgiana's path.

I look forward to reading all of the novels in the series! ( )
