This was a really cute and funny mystery, but it thankfully avoids tweeness or sappiness. Mostly. Lady Georgiana is 34th in line to the throne in 1930s England, and stony broke. However, it's not the done thing for royalty (however distantly related) to actually work, so Lady Georgiana has to go about it rather stealthily, trying her hand at a few different professions. When the body of a Frenchman turns up in her bath, Lady Georgiana devotes her considerable energy to clearing her family name - although there's still time for the occasional picnic on the Thames, or gate-crashing a wedding to enjoy free nibblies.

I found the romance bit a teensy bit sappy, but ah well - it was still a very enjoyable book.
