INTRODUCING A FEISTY NEW HEROINE (JACQUELINE WINSPEAR) who's thirty-fourth in line for the throne and flat broke.

From the Agatha Award-winning author of the Molly Murphy and Constable Evan Evans mysteries!

Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie, 34th in line for the throne, is flat broke. She?s bolted Scotland, her greedy brother, and her fish-faced betrothed for London. The place where she?ll experience freedom, learn life lessons aplenty, do a bit of spying for HRH?oh, and find a dead Frenchman in her tub. Now her new job is to clear her long family name.
Georgie is the 34th in line for the throne and she’s broke. She moved to London from Scotland after her brother stopped supporting her. Georgie lives alone without any servant, independently. Then halfway through the book, Georgie found a dead body in her bathtub. Georgie must figure out who committed the murder now that Georgie’s brother, Binky, has become the main suspect. But it wasn’t easy especially that Georgie found out that someone is trying to kill her. And that someone might be someone among her friends.

I’m so glad that I read Her Royal Spyness. It has been a while since I actually enjoyed reading a cozy mystery. The murder happened a bit later than the usual mystery I read, but that didn’t make the story less entertaining. I really enjoyed knowing Georgie in the first half of the book. I love how Georgie tried to support herself without her family’s help by setting up her own housekeeping service. The supporting character like her friend, Belinda makes the story more fun. Then, there’s Darcy O'Mara as a distraction. 

The mystery part was a bit predictable, but I do think that the author did a good job with writing the mystery. Her Royal Spyness is definitely a fun cozy mystery. I’m looking forward to read the next book.
