Her Royal Spyness

Her Royal Spyness
by Rhys Bowen.

Bowen’s new series lives up to her previous “Constable Evans” and “Molly Murphy” series. It seems like a mixture of P.G. Wodehouse’s Jeeves and Wooster and Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum.

Lady Victoria Georgina Charlotte Eugenie, daughter to the Duke of Glen Garry and Rannoch, is 34th in line for the throne of England. As a poor relation, she finds herself looking for ways to live the LIFE without any funds. A summons from the Queen leads to spying on her cousin David and that American tart he’s interested in.

This series is another lighthearted mystery romp - this time through the world of English aristocracy in the late 1920s.
