This is a great first book in a new series by Rhys Bowen (of the Inspector Evans Series). The main character comes to London to start earning her own living, and of all things sets up a cleaning service. With herself as the only employee! Along the way the Queen gives her an assignment to solve a mystery, which she jumps at. Great characters, the main character is very likeable. I would really recommend this and any other books in the series she may write.

Fun read, if you enjoyed the Molly Murphy or Constable Evans mysteries you will surely enjoy this too.

Excellent. I just finished it last night. Characters are funny and easy to like. Story moves along quickly. Weaves in some history of early 1930's. Just started the next one I liked this one so much. Highly recommend.

For some reason, I put off reading this for a long time. I actually finally received it in trade through paperbackswap recently. It reads a lot like Molly Murphy mysteries, featuring a flawed, yet endearing, witty and loyal heroine - who, despite her life of privilege is still identifiable by the "common woman". The mystery, however, takes a long time to form and isn't exactly the most complex or intriguing mystery I had ever read. Actually, you could spot the villain a mile off. The romance was good, but sort of lacked the same sparks that Molly had with Dan. All in all, though, I quite enjoyed this novel and recommend it.

This was the first book I've read that is written by Ms. Bowen and I really enjoyed it! I love mysteries set in another era and stories about the royals of England. It was a lot of fun and there were several times that I laughed aloud. I definitely plan to pursue more books written by this author.

Set in London in 1930, Bowen introduces a delightful heroineLady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie. Thirty-fourth in line for the English throne, Georgie has been educated to curtsey, host lavish fetes and marry well. When her brother cuts off her pitiful allowance, Georgie leaves the family home in Scotland for London, determined to become a liberated woman. When her brother is accused of the murder, she must try to clear him and the family name. Quirky characters like her lovable grandfather; her estranged, oft-wed mother; and an incorrigible, sexy Irishman add to the fun.

I heartedly recommend this, the first in the "Royal Spyness" series. The main character, Lady Georgiana is thirty fourth in line to the British throne....the only thing, she and her family are dead broke, so she travels to London to try to make her own way and to earn money....The Queen gets her involved in a mystery...was able to figure out "who dun it" but it makes no difference, it was a good fun read, and I will be reading the next book to see how Lady Georgiana's character develops.....
