A Royal Pain (Royal Spyness Mysteries)by Rhys Bowen
Synopses & Reviews
Now in one volume—the first three charming and lighthearted” (Kirkus Reviews) Royal Spyness Mysteries from national bestselling author Rhys Bowen, featuring the elegant, titled, and stony-broke sleuth Lady Georgiana Rannoch.
Her Royal Spyness
Georgie is forced to earn her keep as a housekeeper in London when the Queen summons her to spy on the playboy prince. But when a Frenchman winds up dead in Georgies bathtub, its her job to clear her very long family name.
A Royal Pain
While entertaining a Bavarian princess at the Queens behest, Georgie finds herself investigating the rather more worrisome matter of the dead body in the bookshop, as well as her royal guests unwitting involvement in the communist party.
After being saved from scandal by her on-again-but-mostly-off-again beau, Darcy OMara, Georgie is shipped home, where Scotland Yard asks her to keep an eye on a shooting party and prevent someone from killing the Prince of Wales instead of quails.
From a critically acclaimed author comes another hilarious mystery set in 1930s London, featuring penniless aristocrat Lady Georgiana, a feisty new heroine to delight a legion of Anglophile readers (Jacqueline Winspear).
