Her Royal Spyness By Rhys Bowen

Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie (Georgie)is 34th in line to the throne living with her brother who is a Duke who cut off her small allowance.She bolts from Scotland and her impending engagement to Prince Siegfried and comes up with an idea to start her own cleaning business in order to make a living. One day when she comes home from work she discovers a dead body in her bathtub She thought having no money was a big problem Now she really has a problem on her hand s and has to solve the case in order to clear her name as well as her brother's. We can not have (HM) Her Majesty embarrassed by a relative who has been convicted of murder ....

My Thoughts:

Georgie is a breath of fresh air and she is very cautious of her royal relatives and tries to live up to the "Rules of Royalty" that she has been taught.She is very respectful of the Queen Mary and is protective of her royal relatives. I loved the scene where Wallis Simpson comes in to her friend's shop and Georgie over hears her gossiping about The Duchess of York( who is affectionately known today as the Queen Mother). Georgie gets her back though at a party when Wallis comments on Georgie 's mother an actress who snagged a duke and Georgie's comment to Wallis "Yes she is if you get a chance to meet her maybe she can give you pointers on how to act like a Princess". I laughed out loud through out this whole book I loved how Bowen gave the actual royal characters in the book actual parts in the story. I will definitely following this series to the end.
