The Royal Spyness series by Rhys Bowen??   It's new with only 2 books so far with the 3rd one coming out, I think,  in March. 

I love her Molly Murphy series....but have no desire to read her Evan series.  I was wondering if this one was any good or is it too fluffy in that the main character, Georgie, is of Royalty. 

Thanks in advance for any opinions.

I have both of the first two books on my TBR but haven't read them yet. I've really enjoyed the Evan Evans series and I like Molly Murphy well enough (although not as well as Victoria Thompson's 'gaslight' series set in roughly the same time frame/place) so we'll see how Lady Georgiana does. I haven't started it yet because I'm trying to wrap up a couple more series before I start anything else new...there's just too many going at once! I too am hoping it's not going to be too fluffy and romantic. LOL

I read the first one.  It was fine. Yes, a bit fluffy.  More of a story about a society girl in London than a mystery.  I have the first Molly Murphy book at home to read.  I wanted to catch up on the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear before I got around to Molly Murphy.


If you like the Jill Churchill 'Grace and Favor' mysteries, you will like the royal spyness books.
