Not the best or the most humorous in this series and runs very much to formula, however the Kensington Palace setting was interesting. I found the number of typos and errors (which should have been picked up by any competent editor) irritating; as, for example, at the end of chapter 10 when Georgie writes "Queenie finished undressing me and I climbed into bed" and a couple sentences later she says, "There was nothing else to do but go up to my room and get undressed." The ending was enough to make me want to check out the next in the series, though I hope for an all round better effort.

Another instalment in the Royal Spyness series - at this point, you know what you are getting. Georgie remains an excellent amateur detective and manages to escort Princess Marina about while navigating her usual brush with lack of funds and a crazy cast of characters. I enjoy this series quite a lot!

The ninth book in the Royal Spyness series

I didn't finish this book. Why, because it started out with the same problems-Darcy is gone, limited funds, and she is more or less homeless. Same as always. After awhile it is boring.

The ninth and most recent installment in this charming series might be my favorite yet, as Bowen expertly blends the usual whodunit with some exciting developments in the personal lives of Georgie and a few of her friends. Furthermore, the book's ending will ensure that fans will be on the edge of their seats eagerly awaiting book #10. Anglophiles and historical mystery fans, you'll want to try this series.

This is the best in this series.

Every one of the Royal Spyness books has been an immensely enjoyable read as each one has unique characters injected into the highly successful formula.
Read them all; wish there were more.

Good, but not the best. While the fleshing-out of Belinda's character is welcome, much of the book felt overly formulaic - yet again...Georgie has nowhere to live; she is assigned a Royal duty; she doubts Darcy; she misses the killer until the last minute - (most remarkably this time, as he was quite obvious). Let's hope the unexpected final sentence is not a blind and does lead to a new chapter in Georgie's life.
