I don't know that I would enjoy this series nearly as much as I have this far if I were actually reading the books, but the reader of the audiobooks, Katherine Kellgren, is really phenomenal.

The mystery here is pretty lame, as was the case in the previous books, but Georgie is such a delightful protagonist, and the supporting characters (Georgie's flighty friend Belinda, serial divorcee mother, and, of course, Darcy the love interest being among the best of them) are a lot of fun.

Book #3

8:30 hrs narrated by Katherine Kellgren.

My new reading passion (started last fall) are all these lighthearted cozy mystery novels. A genre even better as audiobooks. I really liked the first two (Her Royal Spyness (4.2) and A Royal Pain (4.3)). It was yet again with a good feeling I started audiobook listening to a new part.

Never thought I'd be glad of a headache. But I am! I started this yesterday a.m. when I had a migraine and could not stop listening. Well, I did a little to go to bed last night. But I picked it right up again this morning.

Torn from the headlines! (Well,the headlines of 1932.) That's how I'd describe this book. I love books like this that are set amongst the controversies and scandals of a certain time. I also especially like this series for the characters. Plucky Lady Georgiana (34th in line to
I am honestly surprised that Royal Flush has not yet won any awards, because it brings us an even more enjoyable tale of adventure, intrigue and romance than the first two books, both of which I had already thought were close to perfection. It certainly deserves one.

This third installment takes Georgie back to her childhood home of Castle Rannoch in Scotland, after her newest attempt at earning money (advertising herself as "escort" in a newspaper) brings disastrous results. I've always enjoyed

Still enjoying this rather lightweight series, and maybe it's just that I was reading it in tiny installments on my break at work, but I didn't pick up on whodunit right away, so I call it good. I'm starting to be fond of the supporting cast, particularly Georgie's friend Belinda, who is just too shallow and sex-obsessed for words. And I *was* warming up to Darcy as Georgie's love interest; he's started to demonstrate that he's really interested in her, and there's evidence that his constant dis ...more
Her Royal Spyness series is a fun fluffy historical mystery series set in mainly Britain and Scotland during the 1930's. The protagonist is Lady Georgiana who is 34th in line for the British crown. She is therefore burdened with family obligations but without the money or power to always fulfill or live up to them. She is a fun heroine to read about as she has a generally bubbly and funny personality, although she at times makes some silly decisions. In Royal Flush, the third book in the series, ...more

Light to read, I finished this book in one sitting down, not noticing that it's past 5AM already. There are more mysterious things happening in this third novel than in previous ones, although these things were never the focus until the later part of the book. The questions and whodunits are like afterthoughts to the life and times of royalty and the high society in the early 30s. It's like going to a party and then suddenly remembering when the party is winding down that there's a murder to be ...more

I am continuing to enjoy this series. On this go-round, Georgie has the brilliant idea to rent herself out as a companion to visiting business men --- she'll get free dinner and possibly theater visit and they will get good company. Unfortunately her ad in the paper makes it seem like an prostitution ring :-). The police get wind and strongly "suggest" that she leave London for a while, so she runs back to the family seat in Scotland, where many of the high society types are gathering for some s ...more

I also write the Agatha-winning Royal Spyness series, about the British royal family in the 1930s. It's lighter, sexier, funnier, wicked satire. It was voted by readers as best mystery series one year.
