It's just bit too light for my taste & too predictable. Best as a timewaster.
This book should be filed and shelved in Teen Fiction, between The Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys mystery series. Even the most ardent of Anglophiles would have a hard time with this one. A great grand-daughter of Queen Victoria becoming a scullery maid to make ends meet? It would be easier to believe she would turn into a pumpkin if she didn't return home before midnight. Give me a break. Will pass on the rest of the series.
A fun story but somewhat repetitive. Georgie seems to be based on both Miss Fisher (but a poorer version of) and Stephanie Plum, which makes for fun and games.
The mystery, however, is very light, predictable and easily solvable long before the end of the book.
Entertaining but not mysterious.
I adore this series by Rhys Bowen. It is funny and charming. An excellent beach book, characters developed just enough to keep you interested but not so detailed plots that you feel lost if you put it down for a day or two
I'd become sick of cozies and have avoided them for years. This book was entertaining and fun without being cutesy.
Read this one for the humor. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone looking for a perplexing mystery. The plot is entirely predictable.
This is an extremely fun mystery set in 1930s England, focusing on a minor member of the royal family (34th in line to the throne!) who turns amateur sleuth to clear her brother's name after he is accused of murder. Georgie is an extremely likable narrator, the cast of supporting characters was well-developed, the slight romantic subplot with an Irishman was enjoyable (and clearly to be continued in future books), and the entire book was a totally funny, fluffy read. I will definitely be reading the rest of these.
A charming tale, told by a very skilled writer. The book is, arguably, a female version of P.G. Wodehouse, in that it features those upper-class British families so many of us are intrigued by, but in this case from the female point of view. I enjoyed this story very much, and will be looking for more. It's a nice, comfortable way to pass some time reading and not have to feel depressed about the world afterward!
A hilarious debut from an author that understands the upper crust durng the 1930s. Although it starts slow, the journey is worth it - Georgie's situation gets more and more dire and her solutions are more outrageous. Until it is all wrapped up in a very satisfying conclusion.
