Book Review of
Her Royal Spyness
London, 1932. Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie, 34th in line for the English throne, is flat broke. She’s bolted Scotland, her greedy brother, and her fish-faced betrothed. London is a place where she’ll experience freedom, learn life lessons aplenty, do a bit of spying for HRH—oh, and find a dead Frenchman in her tub. Now her new job is to clear her long family name…
I bought the ebook, Her Royal Spyness, when it was on sale. I finally read it when we took a weekend trip to Dallas, TX. It made a great read for the car trip. I enjoy cozy mysteries and had heard great things about this series.
Her Royal Spyness is the first book in the Royal Spyness series. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was a fun mystery and had me guessing until the end. It was a bit unrealistic in places, but many fiction books are.
I loved the descriptions of the people and places in this book. If you love cozy mysteries and books set in England, I think that you will enjoy this one.
I will say that it is a little pg or even pg-13 in places. It also inserts some things to make it politically correct. I don’t usually mind things that are added to books to make them more politically correct or acceptable to our current times if those things are truly relevant to the story. In this book, and in others I have read recently, it seems like authors just put it there to make the book seem better for our current times. I don’t like it when a book makes me feel that way. An event should fit the story, not just be added to make the story fit our current culture. I am curious to read the other books in the series to see if they feel that way too.
