Wow, this is a wonderful book. I thought I would mildly enjoy a light period mystery, but I had no idea this book would turn out to be so funny, charming, and well-written. While reading "Her Royal Spyness," I found myself continually looking at the cover and the back, making sure this was actually "just" a cozy mystery. It is so well-written, the characters so delightful and well-drawn, I have to say that, while I love mysteries, this book is a cut above the rest. Bowen draws a marvelous, and hilarious, portrait of young, slightly silly, but rather lovely and eccentric, royals, running around '30s London, getting into funny scrapes. More than for the mystery (although the mystery is excellent as well), read this for a delightful picture of high society amongst impoverished minor royals in the 1930s.
