Oh I liked this very much. She's thirty-fourth from the throne, the granddaughter of Queen Victoria's daughter and the daughter of a Scottish duke who married an actress. Her brother, the present duke, has cut off her allowance, thinking it's time for her to marry and have someone else support her. Lady Georgina removes herself to their London house without family or a maid. She quickly learns to fend for herself, with the advice of one of her wild friends and her Cockney grandfather.

The Queen summons her and wants her to spy on the Prince of Wales and his current flame, Mrs. Simpson. At the same time, a repugnant man shows up to claim that her father had gambled away the Scottish castle and grounds. Then mysteriously, the awful man turns up dead, drowned in the bath. And her half-brother arrested for the murder.

Georgie works feverishly to find out what happened at the risk of her own life. Charming and funny!
